back to the basics.


It has been a hot second since this girl has stepped foot in the blogging world, and I would be lying if I said I didn't enjoy the break.
However, I missed those few connections/relationships I have made through blogging and missed seeing what was going on in their lives!

I'm back, for good. 
By that I mean to my usual 3 {if you are lucky} 4 posts a week.

I know I got all sad, dark, and sappy for a second and complained about how terrible my life and how I hated boys and blah...blah..blah..

But, I got a friendly reminder from my father:
that is life & shit happens.

My dad and I are the exact same person almost, it is actually kind of scary. I look like him, I can drink like him, I cuss like a sailor like him, my sense of humor is the same as his, my independence is the same as him. So, to say we have "life chats" is a stretch because we tend to disagree a lot because we are the same person. 
However, those rare {and i mean rare} moments when I let my guard down we do have them and when I was whining on about a pathetic boy who broke my heart, how I didn't have a full time job, and how I felt very confused about some family issues, he simply said it best.
"Kels, get back to the basics and fix what you dont like."
At first when I heard "back to the basics" I instantly thought of hits off of Christina Aguilera's album and quickly realized that is not what he was referring too.

It all made sense.
Go back to the things that made me feel free, the things that made me, me.
He said, "I haven't heard the last time you mentioned your blog, or the last time I saw you go for a long run, or hell, the last time you went to the mall {Told ya, I had issues.}

I have a great life. I'm healthy, I have a family who loves and supports me, wonderful friends who keep my heart happy, and a job that I adore. 
Fixing me and doing what I know to make me happy is the only thing I can control in life, it's the only thing all of us can control.

So, this is me getting back to the basics and doing what I love because I love it. 
Not doing something because it's what he loved, or what they loved, or what anyone loves.

I've missed blogging 3-4 times a week, even though I usually blog about nothing, I've missed going on those runs and crankin' up the tunes and clearing my mind, and trust me I've missed the mall.
Now is the fun part in figuring out what I want in this next "step" of life, who I am as an independent person, and what I want to fix about me. 
You know, back to the basics.
There are a lot of things I can't control in life right now that I pray to God that I could, but this is one thing I can, so I'm runnin' full speed with it.

I encourage all of you to step back and think about the same thing.
Do you need to get back to the basics?

I've missed you all.
