Despite my lack of blogging, commenting, or updating of BvtW social media, I am in fact very much alive and well, living in the great land down under and continuing various projects on the interwebz – just not so much around this domain.
You see, life has been a little less travel-y these days, and a whole lot more busy. But in a good way, of course. My time has been devoted more to the projects that correlate more directly with an income and future growth – and that just doesn’t leave much time for anything else (besides craft nights – gotta have craft nights).
In the middle of all the hubbub, there has also been a slight shift in what I would consider my passions, and after the longest time of beating myself up for not being able to give anything to Brooke vs. the World, because I had not only the hours but also the desire, I gave myself permission to let it go… at least for a while. At least until I decided how I want to proceed.
So, here we are. It’s been an unthinkable 8 months since my last update on this blog, and it’s been just as long since my last overseas trip. Sure, I’ll be heading to the States again next month, but I can’t say that I’ve been particularly heartbroken with playing it low-key in Sydney (must be the whole 30s thing).
I’ve just been focused on other goals. Instead of looking at the one goal of all travel all the time, my main want has evolved into starting a business and being more successful, stable and reliable. And more diverse. I mentioned craft nights before, right?
And with all these shifts, I kind of felt like I didn’t know how to handle my personal travel focused blog… hello, radio silence.
But after stepping away for a while, I now have a clearer vision. Just as my goals and dreams in life have evolved (I still want to travel, but just not for the sake of travel), my blog will evolve, too. Brooke vs. the World will continue to be personal, with a strong emphasis on traveling and living abroad (and all the opportunities and inspiration acquired from it), but it will also talk about all the other things I take on in the world… like starting a small business, being crafty or converting to a (mostly) vegan diet.
You know, whatever floats my blogging boat at the moment.
BvtW is back!
Well, let’s wait and see how long it takes for me to get the next post up before we get too excited 😉
