Yes, after 8 long months I am finally back and I’m going to try and make this post short and sweet while also giving away as much info as possible regarding my incredibly long hiatus.
As you may know, or maybe not if you aren’t following my blog’s instagram account, I was pregnant the last time you heard from me. Well, I had my baby 7 months ago and he is doing incredibly well however, I have not been able to say the same for myself.
About a month before I had him I got hit with a huge wave of depression which has carried on throughout the months since he’s been born. Despite my fragile mental state, I chose to continue taking on my professional responsibilities as a social media manager, even though the thought of doing my job made me incredibly anxious.
For months I had considered quitting because I was putting a lot of my passion projects aside, such as this blog, in exchange for a lot of stress and very little monetary gain. That’s why I have made the difficult decision to relinquish those responsible in pursuit of other career avenues.
Over the months and through dealing with my depression I’ve had a lot of time to think about who I am and what I want to do with my life. In my previous job I took on the role of graphic designer in order to create content for my clients. In doing so, I discovered my love for the visual aspect of marketing. That is why I have chosen to return to school in an effort to obtain my degree in graphic design.
Through my exploration of graphic design I have also rediscovered my love for art and my innate artistic abilities pass on to my by my father.
I truly believe that I have found my passion and my calling in life and for the past few weeks I’ve been wanting to change this blog in an effort to reflect that. That is why I will be doing a full rebranding complete with a new name and new content. I still want to talk about my life and other topics that interest me but, for the most part, this blog will now be about my art, design, and crafts.
I want to show you guys what I am currently doing as an artist as well as document my journey as a mother of 2 who is going back to school.
I hope you guys who are already here decide to stick around but if you don’t then I completely understand and I hope to gain many more followers with this new content that I’ll be making. Thank you so much for your understanding and I can’t wait to see where this new direction takes us.
