If social media and I were a relationship, we would have carried the title of “separated” for the past year’ish. I have contemplated filing for divorce (aka deleting all socials) but something kept me wanting to get back to where we used to be. haha
My feelings towards social media is VERY love/hate. And honestly I couldn’t decide if my time on social platforms was beneficial for myself or others. I literally asked myself so many times, “WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING?!”. Am I adding any value to this platform? If not, then I need to get off! After TONS of thinking, LOTS of talking, and really praying for God to give me wisdom in this area of my life…I finally have clarity. I want my corner of the internet to be a place of comfort & education. I want to inspire others everyday to live a joyful life, help others, and learn to choose happiness above all else. I want to to speak openly about topics others are afraid to talk on, but need to be heard. I want to share my experience with young marriage, blended families, and my failures. Why? Because if i am not bringing light to this platform then I truly don’t want to be here anymore. I am so excited for this new journey. I have been on Youtube and had a blog for the past 5/6 years and for the first time I have felt so clear with my vision and I am so excited to make content that brings laughter & light to others. Moving forward you will see A LOT for raw/unfiltered content, touchy topics, and a whole lot of weirdness from J & I. Cause honestly the first word my friends & family would title me with is “weirdo” haha and I noticed today my social media fam doesn’t even know that about me?! WHAT! I did a whole YouTube Video ALL about this with more in depth thoughts and my future plans. Link is in bio if you want to watch 😉

Wow what a week! Normally I put up my weekly update posts on Monday or Tuesday. This week though, I am just now getting to it on Friday! That truly is how this week is going, haha. I haven’t had a week like this in a long time! I am always extremely busy but this week was intense. I leave for Europe on Monday and will be gone for two weeks, so you can only imagine the pre-work that has to be done before I am gone. Well I finally feel a tad caught up to be able to spend a few minutes on my weekly blog post.
