I want to start this post with a little something different before I dive in,
I have taken the time to make loads of changes across the board and at the end of the day I hope people at least enjoy the changes here on the blog and what I am going to share, but at the end of the day it made me feel amazing and that is all tat really matters in my book. I wrote this post as one of the few opening/introductory posts to my new type of blog. To what I want to see change on my blog. To the new blogger that I want to be. So as you read this I am living life in Savannah or in a car on the way to Savannah to travel with my sister on her spring break, I may have taken it over but she didn’t argue.
Hey guys. Long time no type. Over the past month and a half I have learned a lot about a lot. That sounds so exciting doesn’t it. I’ve learned a lot about others, life, myself, blogging, my family, and old friends. I wish I could say I took a step aside to better myself and for personal growth but to be honest it was because I was tired. Tired of typing silly stuff on here that I myself didn’t even want to read. And if I don’t want to read it why would any of you? So I took the time to just be me. Not blogger Brooke. Not work Brooke. Just Brooke. And I learned a few things but more over I just lived and had to take some steps in my life I didn’t see coming. My grandfather passed and we had to push off the memorial until after the holidays. I learned some hard steps in how to deal with changes within your close family. I learned about what it means to be there for the ones you love. I also learned what it is like to take care of oneself. But don’t worry it wasn’t all bad. I saw part of my family I hadn’t seen in 10 years. Saw my best friend since kindergarten! Saw my other best friend since kindergarten marry the man of her dreams. Went to Disney world for a day. I still work a job I love more than I thought I would. Though it can and does kick my butt on a daily bases. My roommate has some great changes in her life. I am still meeting people that push me and that will stand by mysids no matter what road I take.
Wow. I feel very long winded from typing that all out and kinda surprised in myself for even typing some of that out. But for what this blog has meant for me over the years it needed to be done. I need to open up. If this platform is my outlet it needs to have no boundaries.
This blog is suppose to be an outlet and though I have changed the way I write, I changed my style; heck any and everything you can think of I changed it.
So instead of wanting and wishing for this blog I am going to want and wish for myself. Cheesey I know.
I want to step out of my comfort zone. Now I haven’t done so well with this so far but there are always time for change.
I want to go somewhere outside of Alabama (maybe just outside of Birmingham) once a month. So far I have gone to Dallas for January and Bradenton/Orlando for February.
I really want to clean out my apartment. I love having things but I also have this want, this need to do a hardcore clear out. I almost wish I could have a clean slate but there are things I just cant get rid of because they hold a place in my heart. I want to get rid of the things that do not matter to me.
I want to be closer to those who have been there for me since the beginning. My close family, my extended family, my friends since kindergarten, and closer to myself.
I want to bring you into the world of beauty from my point of view.
I want to throw together parties and see how I like setting them all up.
I want to wear things that I want to wear. Not because they are the it item or because I think someone would like it.
I want to be me and I want to use this creative outlet for what I have always wanted it to be.
I want you to see me.
I want to bring you in and see why I live and love fashion.
I want to chase dreams and support others.
I want to share the talents of the amazing people that have graced me in my life.
I want to join groups of women and men out there that poor their hearts and souls into this blogger world and be a witness to their greatness.
I want to see the beauty and art in the fashion world with my own eyes.
I want to celebrate my friends and family.
I want to be me.
I want to celebrate you being you.
Thank you for those that have been there and stayed to see when and if I would come back again.
