Reignite Your Spark


Monday, September 2, 2019

It's funny how time can pass so quickly + how easy it is to lose track of your own happiness.

I've had a really tough year, mentally. Some people don't + never will understand what that means. Sure, every person experiences a bad day.. or maybe even a bad week. However, the void that I was feeling went much deeper than a few bad incidents happening to me. I allowed myself to shut down and let every little thing build up inside me. I was at a point of exhaustion + honestly, I wasn't sure where I was headed.

There were several factors playing into this exhaustion that I felt. We were living with way too many roommates, work was busier than ever, I felt unappreciated in my role, work/life balance was nonexistent.. the list goes on. The common theme during this dark time was my home life + work.

I was slowly shutting down and seen myself spiraling. I had to make a change.

I don't want to bore you with all the unnecessary, small details of what occurred next.. so I'll just say this..

DO NOT LET PEOPLE MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE TO STAY AT A JOB YOU ARE NOT HAPPY AT.

That is all.

Also, we had a lot of roommate changes all at once. My Sister + BIL finally found the perfect little home for them. We also had another roommate move out due to some unfortunate circumstances. Before we knew it, the house was quieter than ever for the first time in a long time.

I didn't realize how much of an impact it was putting on my marriage to constantly be surrounded by people. It's hard to disconnect together whenever there aren't many private spaces in your home.

This year has been a year of rebirth. Reigniting that spark that makes my soul feel happy.

I hope to continue writing because I've been jotting random things down in my notes for months. I've had a lot happening in my mental space this year.. so writing has allowed me to manifest some of those thoughts into words/feelings. It's been a great way to process certain things. I've kept an open mind this year + that has helped me tremendously. I'm finally allowing myself to break past some barriers + enjoy all that this world has to offer.

I hope to share more of my journey + connect with more of you. Stay connected with me on Instagram. You can catch my latest posts + cute pug content.
