I had something planned out for today, and then I got distracted by another beautiful sunset and I ended up forgetting all about it. Now that I think about it, maybe taking a break from writing for a while wasn’t exactly the best idea, because I often find myself thinking about what new perspective I can share with you over here. It’s the kind of thing that lingers for a long time at the back of your mind, long enough for you to forget that it exists. The nagging feeling that you need to get around to doing something never really goes away, though.
May I interest y’all in another blazing-fire sunset from today? 🥺🧡✨ pic.twitter.com/0Qqisho2lZ

I’ve contemplated making changes to this site more often than I can count. People keep trying to put the idea in my head that maybe if I wrote things that were more practical instead, it could be different. But here’s the thing: you can find practical things on every other channel on YouTube and every other lifestyle blog. So what would be the difference if I just said, ‘Screw this!’ and started writing ‘practical’ things just because the idea was put in my head?
This blog was always meant to be motivational, written in a journal format and that isn’t changing any time soon, because even if it just reaches a handful of people, I’ve been told that they feel better knowing that they’re not the only ones going through the things I write about here. If what I write can touch people emotionally, then I don’t see a reason why I should sell out. That’s just not the purpose of this blog. That’s not what I’m here for. I may be taking some time off, right now, because I’ve been at this for way too long and I need time to figure out how else I could be reaching out to people through this platform, but until then, I’ll just be cutting myself some slack.
I hope everyone’s doing well and taking care of themselves. Sending hugs!
