For a while, I hadn't really felt content I was working on was authentic and true to what was happening in my life so I decided to take a little break...and that little break turned into a month and that month turned into almost a year. Yikes!
I was in a low spot for a while last year. I seriously believe that the quarter-life crisis is a real thing. I mean, I felt so lost and had absolutely no idea in what direction I wanted to take my life.
Sure, I set up some goals at the beginning of the year in 2016 - still working on those too! - but I stumbled into a job that I thought would be my dream job and turned out to be the total opposite. I was struggling with family problems, friend problems, relationship problems. Not exactly how I envisioned 2016 going. So, I decided to make a major change. I quit my job without a plan, started saying no more, cut out a lot of toxic relationships and focused my energy into the people who made me happy. And this weird thing happened...
I was happy. All the things that caused me stress and anxiety slowly faded away. I started doing things that I wanted to do. Spent six months working with my mom on her business. Traveled like I've never traveled before. Laid in bed all day reading. Started a workout routine. Fell in love (again). Started a marketing agency.
And all of this led me to figuring out what I really wanted in life - to live happily, healthily and fulfilled at home and work. (Yeah, it took me a while to figure these simple things out. 🙈)
So, what does this mean for Suzy Speaks? You'll be seeing a lot of different content on here than from before my quarter-life crisis (BQLC?). Suzy Speaks in AQLC will be about living a healthy lifestyle, focusing on fitness and food as fuel, life, travel, and beauty every now and then. Of course, I'll be keeping my Bryan/College Station Guide and will update it as much as possible. So many new places have popped up lately!
Until my next post...
