Hey guys! Welcome back. I know I recently did a life update, but I thought it was time to do another one. So much has happened in the past week and I really thought I needed to share with you all. There are so many emotions going through my mind right now, that it’s difficult to even put this all into words. But I want to start by saying, that everything is good. There isn’t anything that I’m afraid isn’t going to work out. There have just been so many things going on that I decided to sit down and share with you what has been going on and what it means for my blog and my channel.

I recently started really challenging myself to be more open and assertive. It hasn’t been easy because there are so many setbacks. But I genuinely do feel so much better now that I am not staying to myself and not letting anyone in. One of my new year’s resolutions was to open up more and I think I have really been doing that. With that being said, clearly there are some things I need to open up about. Well, maybe I don’t need to, but I feel like they are things you guys should know.

I did start a business. I currently have five other ladies working for me and they are all killing it. That has really helped me a lot, not just in the business world, but also in my personal life. We are building such an incredible community that it really does give me hope that this can work. It also means so much that you all believe in this brand and what we are all about. You guys give so much of your time to reading all of our content and following us on social media, and it just truly does mean the world.

This semester is really stressful. I am still going to be missing three classes after this semester, so I will have to take them in the summer. I am still moving to Knoxville though. So don’t worry, those plans haven’t changed yet. But I have had to alter them slightly in order to fit this into what is going on.

I really am excited to take you guys on this journey with me. It means so much that I get to share it with such a large group of people and that you all are so interested in me and what I do. I love that so many of you are inspired and encouraged by me. That has always been my goal and I love that our family continues to grow every single day. I love reading your comments and having conversations with you. I love being able to recommend things to you. I love the fact that my team is growing and they are all so amazing. I love that I don’t feel like I’m going at this alone.

Since classes started I have been a bit overwhelmed. There are so many things that I am trying to accomplish and do that it is a little difficult. I knew going into all of this that it wouldn’t be easy, but I am still working extremely hard to get all of the content out for you guys and make sure that I am still getting everything done. I am just still trying to figure out how to get everything on a routine.

To be honest, I think one thing I have always struggled with is this idea that I need to be perfect. I need to look, act, and be a certain way before I can accomplish anything. But the truth is, we all have a starting point. And I genuinely believe this is my starting point. All of the things that I am going through right now is just revving me up to take off on this amazing journey. This is just me going through the motions right now. But I don’t need to be perfect. I just need to be me.

Something I get asked all the time is what are my plans for the year? Obviously with graduating college there are going to be some major changes, but I really just want to start living my life. I feel like I haven’t been living my life the way I need to and I really just want to get to a place where I feel like I am living my truest life in my truest form. I have struggled with crippling anxiety and depression for a long time and I let my feats hold me back so much, but it’s time to put an end to all of that. It’s time to really let myself fly and see where I end up. I don’t have any really specific plans for this year, but I am excited to see where I end up and what I end up doing.

I am planning to take Clementine with me wherever I go. If you didn’t know, I do have a cat. Her name is Clementine and she is my whole heart. I love her to bits and I miss her when I have to leave home. But soon I won’t have to leave her because she will be coming with me. I am super excited, but also nervous because I’ve never traveled a long distance with a cat. If you have any tips…let me know in the comments.

Most of you probably know that mental health is a huge, huge, huge thing for me. So when I start struggling or having these moments where I feel overburdened, I always try to take a step back and remind myself that it’s not as bad as it seems. It could be much worse and I need to look at all the bright moments in my life and where I am headed.  have so many things to look forward to so I just need to keep that in mind.

I love making great content for you all. I love talking to you and letting you get to know me more and more. This blog is something I have always been super passionate about and I love that I get to see it grow into a brand. I want to keep inspiring you all and letting you inspire me. I want to help one another grow in all the best ways. So I hope you stick around to see that happen.

Basically what I am trying to get at is that my life is extremely unsettled. There are so many things that I am trying to adjust to and I’m still working on a routine. I like to have stability in my life and change is not something I like to bring around too often. But I know these things happen and I just have to keep going strong. One thing I have learned is that while I am a good person and a nice person, I am also an incredibly strong person. And when these things happen and I face adversity, I need to remember that strength. I need to remember who I am and what I have come from.

I have been spending some time these past couple of weeks reconnecting with myself. I needed to have some time to realize that while things may not be going according to plan, that doesn’t mean that they are over. This isn’t the end. It’s just a bump in the road. I just need to keep fighting the good fight and realizing that I have what it takes to get through it. I know who I am and who I want to be. I am working everyday to get there.

Thank you all for taking the time to read this incredibly long life update. Let me know in the comments if you made it to the end. I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did. I like to know what you guys like. It helps me with future content. Don’t forget to follow before you leave if you have not already and I hope to see you next time!
