I love the wise words of CS Lewis. I have seen this so strongly in my own life... it's wonderful when you finally reach a place where you are able to look back and see how perfectly things have unfolded - even better than you could have planned them yourself.
I just spent a little time going through this blog and the many posts from the different stages in my life. I started this blog in May 2008, after my Freshman year in college. I was 18 years old. I blogged all throughout college, it was a fun little escape and it grew into something deeply personal for me.
Over the years, this blogged has morphed into something different. I feel like there have been times where I posted something just so my blog wouldn't be too behind, or because I didn't want to be a disappointment for those of you who kept coming back to this space. I also got to a place where I wanted to be more guarded and private and I didn't want to share too many personal details. I'm not sure why...maybe just being twenty-four and out in the world, and connected to different things and people...
After going through some posts (like this one). It reminded me that I used to be outspoken and passionate about things I cared about in this little space. I think I lost that somewhere along the way, as I've grown up and graduated and started life in the "real world." I feel like it's becoming a trend to take a blogging break...but I don't want to do that. This space has been a creative outlet and escape for me since I was EIGHTEEN years old. Eighteen to Twenty-Four... That's a lot of change people! That's a lot of growing and learning and pretty much becoming an entirely new person. Who really stays the same as they were at 18? Anyway, my point is: I can't wait to continue on this journey, and I hope you'll continue to stick with me.
