StLSass

A fresh start…

Posted on: May 12, 2017

Alright guys, I am effectively putting an end to my 365 days of writing project. Only in the sense that I am no longer going to post by arbitrarily numbered days. I have found myself becoming more put off by the fact that I am failing at posting everyday, and thus my perfectionism is now kicking in and wanting me to just stop posting all together. So I need to find my comfortable middle zone.

What I have learned: Posting everyday is very hard. That requires a lot of dedication and time, and I sadly just don’t have time for it everyday. HOWEVER, in posting as much as I have lately, I have shown myself that I can post quite a bit more frequently than never, lol. So I will continue to write as much as I can, thats what I can promise for now.

I also am excited to start writing more topics that are true to my blog name: STL Sass. As a sassy St. Louisan, it has been a goal of mine to bring forth a voice that show cases all that this city has to offer, with a bit of a sass. So, starting soon, I will posting reviews of STL locations, and insight on all great things St. Louis.

I feel like when I started the year, I was searching for my voice, to speak anything. So I started writing anything. That was a necessary step for me, just to open up and get talking. Now I’ve got the talking down, so I want to shift towards more focused posts, that are relevant.

I realize this post itself is a bit all over the place, but what I am trying to say is that I believe I have found my voice.

It was hidden deep for awhile under a girl who felt misunderstood and kind of alone. Sharing my life struggles last week with everyone really helped me to complete the process that I have been in for the past few years. Which is the process of learning how to love myself and how to have compassion for myself. That is a never ending journey, however, I want to thank you all for staying with me these past few months with my sporadic posting which was really more diary style than anything else.

I didn’t know what I wanted or needed, but I just knew I wanted to be heard. You all listened. So thank you for that.

I am going to continue posting my sporadic life thoughts, but also adding in the more St. Louis focused posts as well. I am working on getting a few St. Louis writers to also write for the blog.

Lots of great things happening right now, and some I can’t even talk about yet, but that I will post about as soon as I can!

Bottom line: Thank you all. Great things are coming. I am so excited to see where life goes from here.

Have a good weekend!

– Christine
