Blog Update // I Have No Idea What I'm Doing.

Heeello, everyone!

I was going to do a life update here today because, I don't know why, but I've feeling kinda lost lately. I thought this feeling was related to my entire life, like I had no idea what I was doing with my life, but it actually only relates to the blog. My life is pretty good right now - I don't even like saying it cause I'm afraid I'll jinx it or something... I'm currently on brake, I've been working out frequently and seeing results, I start a new job in January, I've been eating healthier, I love apartment and my space brings so much joy and my best friend just came to Brazil to spend the holidays (the one that is studying in NY). So, yeah.. I'm quite happy. 

However, I don't feel content with my blog or the content I've been posting on social media. I feel like whenever my life is pretty cool and super busy, social media becomes.. I don't know.. less attractive? I don't feel compelled to post that often and I honestly forget to take pictures and document my days when I'm with friends having fun. You would think that it would be the opposite, right? Like, when I have a lot going on and I'm actually going places and leaving the house I would feel excited about posting stuff.. but it's not. So, I'm feeling a little torn. 

This self-doubt and lack of will to post on the internet is slowly spreading to my blog and it's upsetting. I love blogging but blogging takes work and it's a very time consuming task - even if it doesn't look like it at times. I still enjoy blogging and I don't feel like I'll give it up completely, but I feel like I need a little break. Not a total break. I'll just take this next week as  a kind of a vacation. I'll still post, but I'll only post when inspiration strikes. I know this is not particularly good for my blogging career, it's just what I feel like I need to do. 
People often don't realize how much of yourself you put into blogging. This might not be the case for every blogger out there, but my blog is literally a reflection of my life. If I'm into minimalism and decluttering at the moment, that's the kind of content I'll create. If I feel like I need a new skincare regiment because I'm not happy with my skin, that's what I'll post about. The same goes for my personal life like when I fight with my friends, when I go on dates or whatever... Don't get me wrong, it's amazing to share my life with virtual strangers and have you guys care so much about me, give me advice and cheer me on this blogging adventure to the point where I feel like we're not stranger anymore. Having said that, it takes a tow on you sometimes. 

So, right now, I'm gonna focus on enjoying life. I'll still blog, don't worry! I'll just blog less often, which will still be more often than usual since I was putting up a post every single day. I'll still finish the minimalism challenge and I'm planning a bunch of cool stuff for the next month. I'm so excited for 2018, guys! I don't remember being this excited for a new year.. ever. I have a good feeling about 2018 and I hope you do too. If you had a bad 2017 (mine was ok, pretty standard), focus all your energy in making 2018 a better year - learn from your mistakes and try doing things a bit different. We don't need big changes to see big results. I appreciate you guys so much and the fact that you actually take time to read my ramblings means the world to me. 

What's up with you?!

Let's chat!

Thanks so much for reading and come back soon!
