Hi! Oh my God! I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to be back… I have missed you so much! So, to address the elephant in the room (literally, there’s an elephant in my room), we obviously stepped back and took a break from blogging. Truth be told, we were feeling a little uninspired and monotonous, which isn’t great for us or for you.
Since then the tides have turned. Not to steal her thunder, but Lyndsay and her husband, Jeff have decided to join us in Pittsburgh, and let me tell you, I don’t know who’s more excited about their life changing decision!
Lyndsay and I have been friends for something like 8 or 9 years now and have only lived in the same city for one of those, so this is going to be a HUGE change for our friendship and our business endeavors. Jeff and his business partner are expanding their company, Huemor, and will have offices in Pittsburgh as well as New York.
As far as my journey, if I am being honest, 2016 was a rough year. I think I have reached a point where I am comfortable in admitting that I can talk about it a little. I ended 2015 in a really rough spot with my professional life and it somehow seeped into my whole life leaving me completely lifeless and unmotivated. I was in a dark place and I truly feel for anyone who has gone through this. I denied the severity for a really long time, but I finally hit a place where I felt out of control of my own life, so I started making strides to get better.
While I don’t want to claim to be totally “out of the woods” I am feeling sooooooo much better and more like myself again. Getting to this point has been interesting. ….. I started therapy. That was hard to type. Not only do I think therapy has a stigma, but its a weird thing to say to someone. Do people go to therapy and just not talk about it? I feel like it’s not really that common. Anyways, it is helping. Tremendously.
I find myself watching less television (something that I will now associate with a cry for help) and randomly I started listening to Podcasts. This is weird. Especially being the type of visually stimulated person that I am, I didn’t expect to enjoy them. I did some research though, and I have found some pretty amazing and inspiring people to listen to. “Be Amplified” is one I feel is completely compelling and recommend highly, but I will get back to this. On my journey I am also journaling, meditating, and spending more time with music. I feel inspired in so many ways, ways I haven’t in a very long time. I have a longing to be around people more and do things I haven’t done in a long time.
So we are back! …..and will soon be a same city team, which gives us the ability to produce lots of wonderful content so please stay tuned, we couldn’t be more excited………..
