I’m back, but I’m not the same. I haven’t published a post in months and it’s because my motivation has been focused elsewhere. I wanted so badly to have a bullet journal-only related blog, however, it is an incredible amount of work and quite frankly, I didn’t always have the time to do it.
I have two young boys (two and four years old), I run a home daycare caring for 4 additional children, I do a lot of cooking, cleaning, errands and everything else for my family and when I finally found the time available to work on things, I had to make a choice on what to focus on. For a long time, that choice was a bullet journal blog but I found my other dreams, my other interests and goals falling by the wayside. I wanted to take some time to expand my horizons, work on other things and see where it would lead.
In that time, I’ve been able to try so many new things and research so many ideas that are incredibly exciting for me. I feel like I’ve finally got a bit of a focus here, it just needs some fine-tuning, then convert those dreams into an actual concrete plan. There’s some light at the end of the tunnel here and I’m finding myself more and more excited to just get going!
I’m done sticking myself in a box. I want to open up my blog here to write about anything I choose. While I’m more that more often than not, my bullet journal will be somehow referenced, I plan on talking about whatever the eff I want from now on. I need to be true to myself. I got the itch to write again and I was inspired by my husband and I talking about my oldest son’s birth story. I want to be able to write about anything I’m feeling passionate about without fear that I will lose readers. I am doing this for me and me alone and if you’d like to hop on the thought train, I’m so happy to have you!
One big item that I will be speaking more about is the fact that I have lupus. I was actually in remission for a little more than 5 years now, but in the last few months, it has not only given me a flare but become more active than I’ve experienced since my diagnosis in 2012. I’m at a point now where I feel I need to advocate for my fellow spoonies and speak out. My goal is to bring some awareness to the Disease of 1,000 Faces.
I hope you like the new format, come on an adventure with me because this is my Life Asarye!
