As all of you may have known by the lack (yes I said it… lack) of blog posts I have been putting up I took time off from blogging. All of you may be wondering “WHY?!?” and the reason is simply just so I could focus on myself and figure out what is truly important to me. Writing has always been and will always be a big part of who I am. Even though there may be months at a time when I won’t write as much it doesn’t mean that I have nothing to write about. It just simply means I’m taking time for myself to get back on track or there are people or things that need my attention a little more. I mentioned this in my previous book how some days I can write forever and other days I simply just can’t (for whatever reason). Writing though is my way of expressing myself and sharing what is on my heart. I found through this break that even though I love writing I also love to take quality time off to focus on the important people in my life like my family and closest friends. A lot has happened this past year since the publication of my first book that I haven’t shared much about. A lot of great things happened and also not so great, but that is life. Life can’t always be perfect and it can’t always be about our plan for our lives because sometimes our plan is not always the right plan.
Sometimes what we want is not necessarily what we need.
Every single event and or person that I have met in the past has lead me to where I am today. I am happy to say that I don’t regret anything that has happened this past year or any person that has come and gone out of my life. Thanks to them I am stronger than ever. Thanks to them I know what I deserve and that is… I deserve to be surrounded by people who inspire, motivate, and raise me up. I don’t have time or the energy to spend my days getting torn down. I want to be surrounded by people who love and care about me the same way I love and care about them.
