It’s been awhile since my last post and for the past few weeks, I’ve been thinking about my comeback post. Do I do an outfit post? a product review? Neither seemed appropriate considering how much time had passed when so much in my life has happened. I didn’t want to jump back into beauty or fashion posts because I wanted to use this time to talk about what I’ve been up to for the past three months. It’s okay if you don’t care to read on any longer, because I view my blog as an outlet and right now I just need a little “brain dump.” Simply click out if you’re not interested, but if you are, just keep reading (and thanks for listening).
So, it’s been a year since I moved to Tulsa– a year since I moved out of my parents’ home to a new city. With that, comes a lot of reflection. What have I accomplished? What am I doing with my life now? What are my plans for the future? I am so happy to finally be on my own, learning to live with the one I love. It’s a wonderful feeling not having to depend on your parents and I’m proud to have accomplished that. I’m still doing retail, which has it’s good days and bad, but I’m proud of the fact that I’ve been promoted twice in the past 10 months. It’s not my forever job, but it’s what I’m doing now in order to make a living and that’s okay. I’ve learned that it’s okay to work a mundane job while trying to figure out what you really want to do.
I still want to pursue blogging as a serious career. I’m ready to hustle and put in the hours of hard work. I’m ready for the day when I can be my own boss and make my own success. This has been a dream of mine for a long time and I’m not ready to give up on that, no matter how crazy I sound when I explain to others what my future plans are. I get the question, “Can you make money from blogging?” quite frequently when I tell people about my plans and I say, “Of course!”, but it’s not about the money to me. It’s about sharing my thoughts and making connections with people across the globe, and if I happen to make a penny off that, then that’s just the cherry on top of the sundae. I’m not looking for sponsorships; I just want to share what I love.
I have no idea if this post is going to make sense, but if you made it this far, thank you for taking the time to read. I just needed a place to dump my thoughts and this is the only place I felt comfortable doing so. If you’ve been following my blog, thank you for coming back! If you’ve just discovered my blog, Hi! I’m happy you’re here!
On a completely different note, my boyfriend and I moved into a new apartment a month ago and we are loving our new space! It’s in a historical part of town and it’s so cute and quaint. The best part is all of the beautiful natural light that comes in.
Thank you again. See you in my next post.
