I've taken time away from a lot of things that made me feel complete and helped me escape from the harsh realities of life. I often wonder to myself why I lost the motivation to write or post as often as I did before. I knew the motivation would come back eventually and it's not like I didn't have things to write about. I guess one could say my priorities changed. I'm not saying that writing isn't a priority anymore because it definitely is but I did have to make some additions to my list of priorities. 2017 was a HUGE year for me. I took my first trip to the homeland, got married, moved across the country, and started a new full time job. I realized that over the months I hadn't allowed myself to fully understand my surroundings or adapt to my new lifestyle. There's so much more that I still need to figure out. But I must say that there was one piece of the puzzle missing, and that was this blog.
As I'm still trying to adjust to my "new life" I realize that I can't fully adjust without this outlet that I've held close to my heart for years now. The break I took was much needed, and I know I'll probably need similar breaks in the future, but the familiarity of writing from the heart is something that will never escape me. I don't know where exactly the road will take me through my journey but I'm glad I can take my readers on this journey with me. Since I'm at it, I might as well let you know that I haven't forgotten the next chapter in my wedding blog posts! I don't feel completely right by forcing myself to write when I'm distracted or when I can't dedicate myself to writing a piece but I will say that when that moment comes, you'll see a new post. Until then, please keep supporting and keep passing positive vibes my way! My readers are a huge part of my journey and I can't thank you enough for inspiring me and reminding me of how important writing actually is to me.
