Authenticity

Hi friends. First off, I want to say thank you to everyone who has supported me and taken the time to read my blog over the last couple of months. Crazy to think I started this back in October!

I recently met up with an old friend and told her I felt like I was struggling lately to come up with blog content. She asked me why I started in the first place and the answer was because I felt like I had a lot to share that other people might benefit from. Things that there are stigmas around discussing, like mental health. I really don’t care what many people think of me, so I figured why the hell not, if my sharing (oversharing probably) helps even one person, I’ll be happy. Since I started this blog, I have had multiple people reach out to thank me for being so open and honest. I’ve had in depth discussions with some people on therapy and what helped me and how I got started. I’ve had very candid discussions with others about some very personal struggles that I have endured and gotten through as well as some that I still deal with now.

I told my friend I wanted to remain as authentic on this blog as possible and that I feel like I have exhausted all that I can say for now. Then she said something so blatantly obvious and brilliant, that I really should have thought of it myself. Maybe you need to take a break from your blog so that you can actually go out and experience life and return when you have more to write about. OMG. DUH. Maybe I’m struggling to find content to write about because everything I’ve written about thus far has covered years and years of my life. I don’t want to be repetitive and there’s only so many ways you can share the same lesson.

So that being said, I think that’s what I’m going to do. It’s certainly not a permanent hiatus, but one that will allow me to keep experiencing life and learn new things and come back and share. I started this blog because I enjoy writing and it’s almost felt burdensome lately because I’m struggling to think of new topics. And I’m sure as hell not becoming a serious lifestyle blog where I tell you my 5 favorite summer looks. Bleh. I’m just not that floofy.

So thank you again to all who have continued to read my words week after week and I will see you very soon!

Until next time,

xoxo, H
