There was a point in time where I actually ran out of things to say. The hardest part of food blogging was trying to figure out what I wanted to write along with each of the recipes that I shared. The funny thing is that I love to write, and I always have something to say. I can write about nothing for hours. I started to think that maybe I didn’t fall out of love with blogging, but maybe I fell out of love with who I’ve become. So much has happened these past few months, I honestly don’t even know where to begin…
I’ve been unhappy for a long time. I didn’t realize how unhappy I actually was until things kind of just unraveled and happened out of nowhere. If you know me personally you know that I’m one of the happiest people. Sometimes even if I appear to be happy, that’s not always the case. I thought I had everything figured out. I lived in a city I loved, I had the perfect house, and I was in a long-term committed relationship. That relationship lasted 5 1/2 years and then one day it just ended. We went from being best friends to strangers with the snap of a finger.
At first I was devastated. Everything I’ve known for the past 5 1/2 years just suddenly changed. My whole world was turned upside down and I didn’t think I would find happiness again. I ended up moving in with my dad for a few weeks while I tried to wrap my head around it all. The longer I stayed with my dad, the more I realized that I was finally happy. I was no longer doing everything for someone who didn’t appreciate anything. I was doing everything for just me and it felt great! Once I started doing things for just me, I was truly happy again. I was the girl that I remembered again.
I wish I could go back and erase the memories from my blog but it’s life. I learned from my mistakes and I’m ready to move on. Good things are coming my way and I cannot wait to share every detail with you! Sweet as a Cookie is about to be that blog you all fell in love with again! 🙂
