Taking a Break/Update on my Life

 

Hey friends! As you can tell, I’ve been a little MIA these past weeks. Being a high school/college student isn’t all fun and games, as I’m sure most of you know already. To be honest, I’ve been going through a lot emotionally for a while now, so for my sanity I had to let a few things go temporarily, some of those things being blogging and social media.

I actually deleted social media because of how horrible it was making me feel. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE Instagram and rejoicing in the creativity of others.  For the time being, however, I need a way for me to stop comparing myself to others, and constantly putting myself down. It’s so easy for us to get caught up in a cycle of “why didn’t this person comment,” or the “like value” of the content you put out. I know I’ll end up re-downloading it at some point, but it’s the healthiest thing for me not to have it haha. Gotta work on that self-love!

My family has also has a lot on their shoulders. I’m not going into specifics because it’s personal to me, but my grandmother recently took a hard hit to her health. The weeks following were full of confusion, fear, and sadness, but I received so much support from friends and family. Fast forward to now, and she’s able to walk again, which gives me so much happiness. My grandmother is one of the most special people in my life, so to know how far God guided her makes me so thankful.

Hmm, what else? I’ve pretty much almost fundraised my entire trip to Costa Rica, if not already! I feel so accomplished and proud of myself. From selling T-shirts, to putting on a church-wide coffeehouse event, every step of the way makes me more and more excited. I’m blessed to be given this opportunity to serve kids with some of the greatest people I’ve ever met.

Now that you know a little bit more about my life atm, I hope you can understand my little break. Everyone goes through ups and downs in life, but I know God has His Plan for me so I’m just gonna let it all happen!

Love y’all lots!

Hello! My name is Emma, and I am pleased to welcome you to my blog, established in June of 2016 (which was a journey in itself). This blog has been the product of creativity, love, and countless hours designing and redesigning. A little about me: I am a graduated senior, coming from my community college's Early College Program, which entailed me receiving my AA degree after I graduated high school! In my high school career, I had been Captain for four years on the girl's JV and varsity volleyball team, became Vice President of our chapter of Technology Student Association, Historian of both the National Honor Society and Science National Honor Society, and received Gold and Silver Keys for the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for my photography. Outside of school, I was involved in my local youth groups for seven years (four mission trips down!), had the opportunity to travel to Washington, DC to attend the Washington Journalism and Media conference, and work at an independent living elderly home. In February 2019, I got accepted to the University of Florida (Go Gators!), and look forward to spending my next four years learning about business and journalism. I play guitar, write, and take/edit pictures in my free time, and absolutely love spending quality time with my friends and family. This is a place where I can talk about a variety of topics, from lifestyle, to faith, fashion, and personal subjects. What's in a name? That, my friends, is an easy answer. I have always been quite observant, and in recent years, especially within myself. Introspective means to be "inward-looking," and for me, that's just the simple truth. For this blog, it allows you a glimpse into everything and anything I come across, whether it be about life, fashion, or travel! This is the place to feel included. Caio! -Em
