No Blog Post For 3 Months?? What Have I Been Doing??

Yup, another "Where Have I Been" post.

I honestly couldn't tell you why I haven't posted on my blog for a while. I have been writing and its a lot more freeing than posting on my blog right now. For some reason, I feel like I'm not getting the "blog world". I have no clue on how to really design my blog, I don't have a certain niche and I'm just tired of trying to figure it out... its draining. I want to do something different with my blog... I have so many ideas, but I just don't know how to make it happen. Design/sell t-shirts? Who knows! 

When I say I've been writing, I've been on another platform called Medium for a little over a month.. and it has changed my whole life... not to sound too dramatic, but I have no pressure to make a certain type of blog post... I'm writing whatever I feel and from my heart. It's sort of a self care thing for me to write and do it without being paranoid about how my website looks or if I added the right link to this or that. I also signed up for the membership/ partnership program ($5 a month) and in my first month, I actually made a little money.... $6.92!  Of course its not much, but coming from someone who has never made any money from my blog or any other writing, this was huge! And its honestly not about the money, I just wanted to get back to feeling good about writing... good about myself. 

Of course I've also been spending time with my kids.

They are my little vampires that drain my soul... but I wouldn't have it any other way. 

Have you stopped something you once loved because you felt different about it? Or you're just confused on what direction you want to go with it? Let me know in the comments below! 

Until next time,

Motivational Minute- Creating The Life You Want

Motivational Minute- Creating The Life You Want

I hate to admit it, but I have fears. 

I fear clowns.

I fear opening a can of biscuits and I fear big flying insects.

But one of my main fears is that I will become stuck in a career that sucks the life out of me. Well, that is where I am right now. I am currently "stuck" in a career I've been trying to get out of for years.

Where is the Love?

Where is the Love?

Everyone has seen and heard about the tragedy in Orlando, FL. and my heart hurts for the lost lives and lives affected from this horrible act of terror. I'm originally from Tampa, FL. and just knowing that this event happened in my home state, on a casual night out with friends, is very disturbing and heart breaking. It seriously makes you second guess the everyday places you go with your loved ones.
