Is This Thing On?
Updated: Jan 6
Hi, it's me Jasmin.
If you're just tuning in for the first time, welcome! If you're not, you're awesome.
It's been a whole damn minute since I've published anything on this here blog and frankly it feels very foreign, like re-learning to ride a bicycle. I recently renewed my website and if I'm gonna keep it real, it took some self-coaxing to continue this creative venture. For a second I considered not renewing my site and putting my blogger status on #pause. Why? Well, the past two months I slipped into a bit of an identity crisis which left me feeling lost and defeated. I began questioning myself and wondered if my voice actually mattered. My deflated ego made me feel like someone I wouldn't look up to or want to take advice from, so what inspiration could I possibly offer to others?
Thankfully, I pulled myself out of that one in time with my dignity still in-tact. My voice, my stories, and my vulnerabilities are what set me apart and they do matter. No scrub in the world will ever make me forget that.
So what's in store for the latter half of 2019? I'm working on publishing more freelance articles in bigger publications and staying consistent with my creative blog content too. I'm traveling to Madrid in September and apartment hunting in LA with my best friend soon.
There's a lot happening in the next few months and I can feel myself on the cusp of an exciting new chapter. My Summer fever is also kicking into high gear so expect plenty of road trips, music festivals, and adventures that I will surely document along the way.
Thanks for tuning in to my ramble. Ya girl is back 💛
