the inevitable return

I have no words…no excuse, no explanation, no reasoning…

How long has it been now? Months? It have to assume 3 or 4, at this point. Ugh.

I’m sorry. 

Not that you really care. I know without a doubt that the lives of my [small] handful of readers went on as normal, probably not even realizing my absence until it had been weeks or months without an update in your blogrolls. I know I have a few close friends and family members that frequent(ed) Build Your Bliss but even they didn’t seem to notice. Life truly does go on without documentation on the internet and sometimes, just sometimes, that realization is unbelievably refreshing.


With all of that said, the past few weeks have had me really missing this little corner of the internet that I created. It had become such a positive, beautiful place for people to connect and I love that. Not to mention how much I miss using it has an outlet for my thoughts, feelings and experiences.

So, I’m back.

I don’t want to lose Build Your Bliss. I love what it stands for [read more here] and that it has the ability to grow and evolve with me as life happens. But I want to…build…on it– for lack of a better word. I want it to benefit you in more ways than just being an interesting diary of some girls thoughts. I want to use my triumphs and struggles as an outlet for creativity, tips & tricks, advice, etc.

Am I perfect? HA. Do I have it all figured out? Hell no. But I’ve learned a lot over the past few months and I’m in a better place mentally, emotionally and physically than I’ve ever been before. Now does that mean I’m the thinnest I’ve ever been? No, I’m actually the heaviest. The healthiest? Nope, ate a pint of ice-cream last night. The happiest? Mmm…no. More on that in future posts. What it does mean is that I’ve opened up my heart and mind to the idea of change. I’ve learned that life isn’t always going to be handed to me on a silver platter and rolling with the punches is part of the human job description. I’ve realized that “bliss” has virtually nothing to do with perfection and everything to do with acceptance of circumstances. When you truly see, feel, and embrace every moment, they suddenly begin to hold more value and…to be honest, life is a hell-of-a-lot more fun.

Alright, that’s my spiel. The bottom line? Build Your Bliss is back.

If you don’t follow me on instagram, here’s what you missed over the past few months;

    Yes! =) Can’t wait! BTW, I’m in a new corner of the internet with a fresh start in front of me.

  3. Am I dreaming ;)? I double-checked when I saw a new post of yours in my feed but yay. Welcome back!

  4. I’m the same way. I keep saying I’m coming back but after a few posts, I disappeared again. I remember I started blogging because I wanted to get away from some painful reminders I had in my life. And now that I’m a little happier than before, blogging just became another chore. Starting to get back into it but it’s hard. 😛

    Yeah, I’d knew you’d be back B)
    It’s been fun following you on on Insta in the meantime!

    We definitely still need to meet up though 🙂
