Hi Everyone! Its been a bit. I was just going through my site doing a few updates when I realized it has been about a year since I announced my rebranding. In the last year I have been more open on the mental health aspect of my life – mostly on social media. I have used this site more as a journal as anything to express what I have gone through.
Just a few updates of 2021: My boyfriend and I took 6 months apart. I’ve started up therapy again. I hit 3 years cancer free! I’ve dedicated myself to navigate myself care journey that I did NOT give my self the ability to do before. I read 11 books in 2021 when my goal was 6. I am still in talent acquisition. I have included journalling daily into my lifestyle. I (for the most part) have maintained my health journey. I have made MASSIVE progress on my finances. I am still a Boston Girl – my accent still comes out when I drink. Mogli is still alive and well and sleeps in the window all day every day. Milo lives with me full time now, herding his brother around the apartment. My best friend gave me the sweetest little nephew and my other bestie is giving me TWINS this year. I’ve taken multiple girls trips and solo trips to visit friends. I have been living for myself and creating my own happiness.
If you have followed me from the beginning, you know this blog took a little bit of a back seat when I was finishing up grad school, then took a total nosedive during the pandemic as I was in a bad place. This is something I am passionate about, but I have continuously tried to keep it a main part of my life. After taking quite some time to disconnect and reconnect with myself. Now I am FINALLY ready to get back in full swing.
I have done a lot of soul searching and want this as a place to be true to myself. I love being positive but sometimes you just need to relate. You need to know that other people out there are going through the same things you are – that’s where I have found solace. I’m going to start with baby steps, attempting to get back up to one blog post a week (I do have a full time job that actually pays my bills). Hopefully once I get back into the swing of things, I can up my game! I love my mental health posts and expressing myself, but I also love posting about good eats and book lists, and my favorite products. I think I want to get more into the financial difficulties of being a millenial and the anxiety I feel approaching 30.
I love suggestions so if there is something you want my opinion on, contact me or drop a comment below. All of my followers mean so much to me, I know I am a small fish in a big sea, but if I even impact one person positively, I will be happy:)
As Always, XOXO – Tay
