Chasing My Sunset

It feels so weird to start writing again! I hope everyone had a great summer and you’re well rested.

I apologized for being a way for this long, but there were things happening in my life that made it hard for me to keep up with blogging, plus I hit a point where I found myself tired of it.

I was repeating the same cycle again, like I did on my first blog. Something just didn’t feel right or was still lacking that made it hard for me to continue. I thought it was best to take a break and think through things. Things like should I even continue to blog, what were my plans for the future and where I was in my life.

It was a painful and dreadful process. Luckily, some clarity did come out of it.

A friend of mine told me recently that I reminded her of the character in “Eat Pray Love”, a memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert. I seen the movie before years ago, I didn’t remember much about it, so I decided to watch it again last weekend and my friend was right. I resonated a lot with the character this time. Leaving everything behind and go on quest to find myself sounds very tempting right now!

Let’s cut to the chase: I’m going to start a new blog soon, but it won’t be about beauty anymore. If I’d write about beauty, it’d be in a different way. The new blog is going to about
-life as a dreamer (working on your goals)
-life as a single
-life as a woman
-living an authentic life

The good news is if you had enjoyed my Thinking Out Loud topics, I have a feeling you’d enjoy my new blog – so stay subscribed.

At one point I thought, it’d be best for me to quit blogging all together. I thought I wasn’t good enough and my voice alone wouldn’t be enough to attract readers. Then I got messages from people who read my blog, and the feedback was incredible. I still can’t believe that someone stayed up all night to read my blog. That got me speechless.

Believe it or not, even with the feedback like that, I was still hesitating to come back. So I procrastinated, until one day I got a strong feeling that I needed to continue writing and start a new blog. I even got a new name for it.

When the new blog is ready, I’ll send you a newsletter about it. Stay tuned.
