Something Personal

It’s Bee You Monday and though I’m ashamed to say it, I have to admit that I haven’t written a Bee You post since December of last year.  You all are my peeps, my home-girls, my inspiration, and I want to always create the best damn content possible here on the blog for you.  I want to provide you with moving posts that inspire you to go after your dreams, make you smile, and make you happy to be alive.  In order to do that, I need to feel pretty damn good myself, right?  Well, in all honesty, I’ve been feeling like a car running out of gas, going put, put, put, put, put…


Maybe it’s this long, dreaded winter.  Maybe I need a change of scenery.  Maybe I need to exercise more.  Maybe I need to find a new hobby.  Maybe it’s the madness of planning this wedding.  Maybe I need a new “9-5” job.  Maybe I just need some time to breathe.  I’m not really sure what it is, but I haven’t felt like my best self these past few weeks.

I’ve been going back and forth, debating whether or not to tell you all what I’m going through or if I should just stick it out and keep trying to create good content for you on the blog.  But when it comes down to it, my mind just isn’t in the right place right now and I’m realizing that good and consistent blog posts aren’t going to come naturally unless I’m 100%.  And quite honestly, not only do you deserve my best self, but I deserve my best self.  I want ME back and I want her as soon as possible.

So this is what I’m going to do.  I’m going to take a little break.  Actually, I’m not sure how long the break will be.  And it’s not really a break… During this time away, I want to search for what will make me feel whole again.  I want to learn how to find happiness in the simple every-day things like I used to.  I want to feel rejuvenated, refreshed, and ready to show up to the party, confetti in hand.

Don’t worry, I’m not leaving permanently.  I’m still going to be active on Twitter and Instagram, so be sure to follow me there if you don’t already.  The whole purpose of this is for me figure out what it is that needs readjusting in my life, fix it, feel great again, and then come back with a mind and heart exploding with positive energy.  Because that is exactly why I started this blog.  I want this to be a place that guides you to living that positive, daring, happy, and dreamful life that I strive to live every day.

I hope you can understand how important this is for me to do and more importantly, I want to say thank you for being the best support system that I could ever ask for.  You all make me want to be a better person and by taking this time to figure things out, that’s exactly what I hope to do – become a better personTalk soon. xo

    Oh my. It’s so scary how similar things are between us all the time LOL! I have recently been feeling the same way. Feeling stuck, uninspired, like I will never be enough. And I have been learning to stop comparing myself to other people. It was killing me, and my business. Learning to be myself in every aspect and not trying to do what other people were doing who seem to “have it all together” has been so refreshing. Good luck and I’m sending happy vibes your way!

      Kathleen, I always love hearing from you. Thank you so much for this and I’m glad to hear you’ve found a way to feel good and refreshed again. I do sometimes feel like whatever I do, it won’t ever be enough to be my full-time gig. I sometimes feel like I’m so behind on life. But I totally agree, the only person we should ever be comparing ourselves too is our old self. I feel almost like I’ve taken a step backwards. I need to figure out why I feel this way and work on feeling GOOD again. As silly as it sounds, I definitely think this rough winter has something to do with it.

    I’m feeling exactly the same… negative, unmotivated and uninspired.

    But if it helps I love what you do and your website is on my list of inspiration for when I’m feeling a bit stuck.

    If you find any good methods of getting back on track again, I’d love to hear them.

      Thank you, Gemma! That truly means so much to me. I can’t believe how refreshed I’m already feeling after taking a few days off. It’s lifted so much pressure off my shoulders and I’m finding the motivation to start doing more things for me and no one else! You can and you WILL get through this rut. We will do it together! xo
