Are you really happy, or are you just comfortable? A question I asked myself about a year and a half ago. I was healthy, had a loving fiancé, a family who supported me, a chocolate Labrador with the biggest personality and was preparing to graduate from one of the most prestigious nursing schools in the country. Although I had so much positivity in my life I knew there was something more I had yet to accomplish.
I love fashion, but I wasn't interested in becoming a fashion blogger. I love working out, but I didn't simply want to become the next Whitney Simmons - however I am definitely a fan girl :) I wanted to do much more. I wanted to create a place I could store and expand on everything I was experiencing, struggles and triumphs, while getting to know others with similar passions. Somewhere I could share my failed rendition of a "Gingerbread Spiced Muffins" recipe I found last week on Pinterest, rave about my latest fitness routine obsession, and spill about deep, real-life topics all at the same time. After brainstorming about what this blog could entail, several thoughts flooded my mind. Will my friends judge me? Will I get hurtful feedback and backlash because blogging is trendy and "she's just trying to be insta-famous"? My mind was racing thinking about all the negatives that could come form publishing my own site, but just as easy as it was to think about all the negativity I realized how much joy could come from it. The amazing people I could meet, the satisfaction from going beyond my comfort zone and after several weeks, Crunch Brunch Repeat was born.
