Hello, It's Me

Ni Hao.

It's a bit strange for me to write right now. I took such a long break from the blogging world that I almost feel like an old person trying a young person's game. 

Social media moves fast. 

I sit here wondering where to begin. Do I explain where I've been? Do I ignore the fact that I last wrote months ago? Do I keep on going as if things are just as they were?

Quite simply, I took a digital detox. Part of this was accidental and part of it became intentional. The break first began with personal/family issues that came up and literally took my attention away. Then, when things settled down, I felt like I needed a complete reset. 

I didn't like that I kept focusing on the negative (of my real life and my virtual life). I felt like I was forcing myself to do something that I used to enjoy. I felt like I had to "keep up" in order to be relevant. And this was just the superficial side of things. 

It was exhausting.

I wouldn't categorize this as "burn out" though. It wasn't like I was running at full force before this detox. But, I felt like if I didn't allow myself to reset then I would burn out. 

Despite what sounds like a clear struggle, I am in a better place and I am managing my expectations a lot better, too.

This better place in life really has to do with my detox. The break from the virtual world allowed me to refocus and to literally live my life without thinking about capturing everything in order to write about it. I stopped thinking about living and just started living. 

I also found my inspiration again.

I had a lot of ideas running about what I would do with this blog. I still do. 

As for the future posts, I hope you'll enjoy them as they come along. I've still got those goals in mind and some fun outfits ahead. 

See you soon!
