I haven't used my blog in a very long time, in fact it's actually been a few years. When I was using it a lot, I loved being able to have it as an outlet for ideas, sharing things I had been working on, and basically just expressing myself. I really want to start using it again. I suppose the first step is to get it back up and running, looking good, and starting with this declaration of hope. It's so nice to be able to sit down after a long day and express my thoughts, share projects, and whatever else comes to mind. When I first started my blog back in 2008 I was mainly concerned with establishing followers, and this time around that's not my goal. My hopes this time around is to use it as a much more censored diary. I feel like when I throw myself out to the world, I am more conscious about how I go about my day and how I spend my time and efforts.
About 3 years ago I went through a divorce, which is around the same time I stopped blogging. I was really depressed, and extremely confused of my place in the world. I felt like I had really hit rock bottom, and I wasn't interested in doing anything but hiding until I was ready to share any progress. It's been a long journey to get to where I am now, and I still have my days, but I can finally say I am proud of where I am. I have started a new career, established new relationships, and have been focusing on my mental stability and overall health. I'm happy to see the progress I've made over the past few years, and I can't wait to see the progress I accomplish in years to come.
