Guess Who’s Back?

Hey There! Long time, no see….or blog. Lol!

So, it’s been a really long time since I’ve blogged. I didn’t mean for it to happen; but life has been life’n something serious!

I’m sure maybe you all are wondering, “where the heck have you been?” Good question. I’ve been asking myself the same thing lately. I told myself that I have to get back into the routine of blogging again because I truly love it. So here’s to a new start.

Let’s start with some of the things I’ve been up to in the past year or so:

Therapy: Last January, I enrolled back into therapy and it’s probably the best thing I could do for myself. Over the past year, I’ve seen and felt myself grow in uncomfortable ways, for the better of my mental and emotional health. I have literally watched the transformation of my healing journey grow leaps and bounds since I started a year ago; and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon.

School: I took the crazy leap of faith and decided that I want to be a doctor one day. I’m currently studying to obtain a PhD in Public Policy. So far, the journey has been very interesting, but I have no regrets. I am loving the journey and the subject I am studying and I hope that it gets me closer to my dreams of becoming a policy analyst for our child welfare system! I’m about 21 credits into this journey out of 60. Send coffee money, please!

Life After Divorce: So I may have not talked about this, but my divorce is now final, and has been for about a year now. I can definitely say that looking now from the outside into my marriage, this was the best decision I could’ve accepted for myself. My ex and I were in a place where I don’t think we could’ve come out of; and ultimately it was for the best. Since he has moved on in his life at a quicker rate than myself, I have chosen that it is best for me to not follow him on social media. We also do not talk daily; however, I have no ill will to him. I just know what is best for me and my mental health as I continue to heal and process certain aspects of now being divorced and a single parent. We are good co-parents, and that is the best thing I can ask for for the sake of my daughter.

The biggest question I’m sure that comes with my new level of singledom would be

“Well, are you dating???????”

Answer: No. Lol

It’s not that I do not want to date, I just am a little exhausted with the process. I have attempted to try the all so popular dating apps, but it has been…in so many words….

Currently, I am taking a bit of a break from the better majority of them, and looking to see what I can cultivate in a more organic way. This will also require me to start getting out of the house more and actually talking to people *my inner introvert is screaming*. It’s going to be an uphill climb, but I plan on taking my time, enjoying loving on myself and seeing what or who presents themselves in my life :).

Overall, life has been pretty great, and while I slowly integrate these blogs back into my life, I hope you all stay along for the ride with me.

Well, until next time….glad to be back! I’ll be back soon with more updates and a peek into this new chapter of life.

Until then, I’ve got homework. lol.
