Finally, after much anticipation...your favorite blogger is the back! Five whole long months have gone by, and I have been trying to figure out what to say about my hiatus. Life happens and it happens hard sometimes. These last few months have been challenging to say the least. I would like to think we have built up a great rapport. One where you the reader and me the writer have a little dialogue twice a month or so about any and everything so now that I have returned, I want to fill you in on my absence and what to expect for the future of the blog. Over the course of the past few months, I have experienced a series of transitions and transformations. Thank you to everyone who has reached out to me to check on me and the status of the blog. I appreciate everyone who has been there for me throughout these months as I figure out and navigate a new chapter in my life, as well as those who have not taken my absence or silence lightly. Every kind word and piece of advice I have been given has motivated me greatly to pick up the pieces of my life because it truly is worth living. Thus, allowing me to return with resilience and confidence. Now I can continue be true to me, allowing me to in turn be true to my art.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines self-love as, "an appreciation of one's own worth or virtue." People express their love of self in many ways. This is not to be confused with being self-absorbed, vanity, or narcissism. Self-love is not selfish. Loving yourself for who you truly are is a necessity for a healthy life.
