Hello 2016

Happy new year! Things were starting to look a bit dusty around here so I figured I'd take advantage of the new year and dive back into this space. I've really missed blogging. In all honesty, I haven't been writing as much in general and I'm hoping to revive my love for it throughout the year. I felt the need to step back from my blog last year. I was spending too much time focusing on things that didn't amount to much. I'm pretty sure most bloggers know what I'm talking about. I got wrapped up in all the numbers and statistics. It ended up affecting my motives for keeping it running. I just want to get back to the basics — sharing bits of my life + faith (both ups and downs) that'll hopefully inspire and encourage others. That's all it boils down to.

My blog isn't the only thing I took time to reevaluate in 2015. It was definitely a year of growth for me and I feel like I learned a lot about myself. I took time to study my likes + dislikes, what fires me up and what I need to work on. I pushed myself to step outside of my comfort zone time and time again. I feel like I really blossomed last year and opened up to living a bold life. I've finally figured out who I am and I've also realized what I am capable of. Simply put, I'm a strong a** woman! Haha. I still have a long way to go (don't we all), but I'm happy about my progress so far. God has been revealing different areas of my heart that need some major attention, but I'm actually looking forward to working through those areas during this season. It may be painful, but the end result will be worth it. I saw the following quote on Pinterest a couple weeks ago and it couldn't be more true! I'm pretty much adopting it as my motto for this year (especially since I failed to choose a focus word this time around). I long to live my life with a relentless pursuit of bettering myself and different aspects of my journey here.
