It's been awhile...
And here is why...
Let's go back, just six months ago, to the beginning of 2018.
In January I set my own New Years Resolutions.
I had big plans for 2018. This was going to be MY year.
My intentions were good. My motivation was there. My plan was concrete...
Nothing was going to get in my way.
But then... Life happened.
And by this I do not mean just the regular, day to day, life "happenings".
I'm talking about the big, life changing, course altering, life stuff.
And... It was rough.
(I am not going to go into detail as to exactly what happened... not because it is particularly private, but it just doesn't seem necessary to get into.
If you are so curious that you just simply can't stand it, hit me up and we can chat <3 ).
To be honest, everything that was going on in my life really took a toll on me.
All the motivation I had was gone.
I felt lost, confused, hurt, frustrated, and quite frankly, exhausted.
I remember coming home from work and the only thing I had energy for was Netflix.
(And... let's be honest... Netflix really doesn't require energy).
Things I normally enjoyed began feeling like chores.
I didn't want to do a n y t h i n g.
This was SO unlike me.
I didn't even have a Netflix account until last year. And even then, I would never just lay around and binge watch.
And now, that's all I wanted to do.
I stopped blogging.
I stopped doing photography.
I stopped working on BE WISE.
and worst of all...
I stopped being me.
I began noticing that the less I did, the less I wanted to do.
The more I sat around and did nothing, the more I wanted to sit around and do nothing.
THIS BOTHERED ME.
I have ALWAYS (yes, I realize I "capsed", italicized, bolded and underlined this) been a productive person.
I never sat still. Sometimes even to a fault.
I hated that I was doing nothing. I hated that I was being stagnant. I hated that I wasn't being productive.
I HATED THAT I QUIT BE WISE.
But... as much as I hated this new reality... I honestly could not get myself to do it.
I was drained.
Physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually drained.
Personally, I felt like I not only didn't progress or move forward, but instead l felt like I was 10 steps behind.
I hadn't accomplished any of my resolutions.
I hadn't moved forward with BE WISE.
I hadn't become the person I wanted to become.
