feeling-lost-quotes-stylishlee-natashaleedsFirst & Foremost…Happy Sunday!

‘It’s not you… It’s me.’ Yeah I think it most definitely is me. Over the past month or so I’ve been trying to figure out how and when I would have this conversation with you & this beautiful Sunday feels like the perfect time to talk to you a bit about my feelings. I’ve been a swimmer all my life—I could basically swim before I could even walk and I as of late I’ve been wishing blogging were as easy like swimming for me (even though I don’t swim as much anymore). Almost a year ago I clicked publish and my first post on StylishLee went live and the weeks that passed after, reminded me more and more just how passionate I was about it. I just wanted to share—share my outfits, my tips, the places I’ve visited and the people I discovered daily. But these past few months have left me slightly drained because of how busy my life has become outside of the blogging world. Between classes, training and work I’ve been feeling overwhelmed.

The crazy thing is, I still am very passionate about blogging because I love sharing creative & inspirational content with each and every one of YOU! I receive questions all the time from close friends, family and from my loyal followers about blogging, & I seriously get pretty excited for their interest in wanting to start a blog. However, I always find it necessary to mention that starting and running a blog takes a whole lot of commitment and its pretty easy to lose motivation. Somewhere along the line I’ve lost this motivation. Not because I don’t love doing this more than anything else I do, but instead because I can’t give my all thanks to all of these other things keeping me busy. I believe in giving my all and I put a lot of effort into my blog content and images, most of which I do all on my own (if I can’t find someone to snap my pics). Not being able to give my all has possibly been my greatest issue. I don’t want to feel pressured to get a post out to you, I’m not one to ‘half-ass’ anything.

No worries, I’m not going anywhere, I just feel like being transparent with you until I better figure things out for you and for my own benefit. Currently I am seeking ways to better manage my time and to set a schedule that fits this life of mine, while also trying to regain some inspiration and possibly change things up here at StylishLee. Right now I’m just trying to figure out what works best for me and what I am able to realistically manage. I think a fresh ‘start’ may be all it takes to get me back in the groove of things. Thank you so much for understanding & for staying with me on this journey. Nuff Love, Natasha ♥

    Natasha…I understand what it is you are going through and give you a thumbs up for sharing. I know some bloggers who take some serious time off because just as any job…it does get overwhelming! And you are human. So instead of pressing pressing on because you know you have to….take a break! Grab a Lindt! You will feel refreshed and fully energized again when you are ready. That’s the beauty in hobbies, though you aren’t cheating the system, you get to do what you want to do! God bless and take care. xoxoxox

    I admire what you wrote here…. at first I thought you were going to say you are taking a break or stop blogging. Girl don’t even do that… I would be sad.

    I am happy you are staying!I look forward to your post!

    As a new blogger I know it is hard but you will get where you want to be just a few more steps Natasha.
    Keep going!

    I can totally relate as a fellow blogger even though I have only been blogging for 2 months now. I just wanna tell you that you have inspired so many people with your amazing style, you are one of the few international bloggers I look up to and I always look forward to reading your posts and getting inspired and more ideas. I hope that you find the strength and zeal to go on blogging and I hope it all works out on your schedule and Photographer situation. I look up to you Miss Lee. You can’t give up!
