This was once an active healthy living, recipe-giving, full of fun active blog. Until it wasn’t. Somewhere between having kids and losing a bit of myself I lost the pizzazz. I didn’t know how to progress with my blog when everything my blog had been based on was up in the air – I mean like out of this galaxy type stuff. Transitioning from free-to-be blogger to a blogger with a new baby kicking around wasn’t something I had prepared myself for.
I went from an active blogger, making from-scratch, healthy meals everyday, making my mental, emotional and physical health THEE top priority to someone who still valued healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle but just went through the motions without the conscious decision-making process behind it. I found that during my much coveted down time, I would rather have a hot, quiet shower washing off baby food and yet to be determined mess instead of reflect on my day or write a post. Before I knew it a week without blogging turned into a month turned into a year turned into 3.
But then something happened, and over the past year or so I’ve started to connect with like-minded people again, and engage in conversations with people who I felt would be good for my person. I started sharing my meals and healthy habits with the social media world, and then the messages started flowing. The texts asking about this food or where I do yoga, the direct messages asking about plant based eating. The more I started putting myself out there the more I had to work really, really hard to ignore that little voice in the back of my mind.
The voice telling me, ‘girl, you’re not doing what you’re suppose to do’; the nag in the back of my mind that I’m wasting a head full of education and knowledge, and more so the ability I have to connect with other people and desire to help them live their happiest, healthiest and best lives.
And so. It’s back. I can’t promise it will be strictly food, because my idea of healthy living is no longer just food based. To me, in order to truly be healthy your mind and body must be connected; your emotional energy needs a positive direction; health an all encompassing. So if you’re a former reader finding their way back because you’ve suddenly got an alert or you’re a new reader, welcome. Again.
