For the past couple of years, I have tried and tried to create content for my blog. It has gone through name changes, content changes, ignored, renewed, and abandoned. I can sit here and list all of the reasons why I have started and not followed through. Ultimately, this blog has been with me through the highs and the lows and at times it was controlled by another person. I wasn’t allowed to express my true self and share with everyone what was really happening in my life.
The past two years, I have been through a huge and healthy transition in my life. It started when my ex and I split. I felt the heartache, mourned the loss, and began anew. I was thankful to start therapy and begin the shedding and healing that my soul needed. I was forced to see my life and the decisions I had made to get myself in the hole that I was, to begin digging myself out and start focusing on the things that I needed. I started participating in the things that I enjoyed. I rediscovered my passions, my loves, and have worked hard at maintaining.
Of course, this transition wasn’t easy as I tend to explain it to be at times. There were a lot of tears shed, ties that were cut, and I sat in silence. For the first time, I listened to the little girl I was drowning. All of the fears I had in regards to listening to that girl were false. I needed to hear and heal her. This process of self-discovery has been nerve-wracking and at times numbing.
I have enjoyed living and writing this new chapter in my life. I cannot wait to share the experiences of dating in L.A. and making amazing connections that will last a life time.
