A New Beginning....

September 4, 2018

So here I am back again, hoping it's third time lucky. My first blog (blogger) got hacked and corrupted, and my 2nd WordPress blog got deleted by GoDaddy and tragically none of the posts can be recovered because they weren't backed up. So, now I'm back again with another Blogger account, with all my fingers and toes crossed hoping that third time really is the charm.

It's been a very difficult couple of years for me when it comes to stuff going on in my personal life, I found myself feeling lost and in a very low place all the time. So I slowly stepped away from Social media, online friendships and distanced myself from anything or anyone that would cause me stress or anxiety. As I sat back and watched a community that's supposed to be based around beauty, fall apart and rear its true ugly head over the last year, I found myself feeling completely uninspired to blog and anxious everytime I logged into Instagram.

I knew I really needed to put myself first and work on improving both my mental and physical health. Taking the time to step back and relax has truly helped me wonders, and for the first time in years, I finally feel more like myself than ever! I still have a way to go, but at least I am making progress. I discovered new passions and overhauled my life!

Now on social media, I no longer feel the need to fit into a particular community or fit a stereotypical mold, just to get likes, follows and views. After all online is NOT real, and I shouldn't be getting so hurt by online strangers comments if they don't actually know me personally, because truthfully the only opinions of me that matter are my own and those who love me. Gone is the pressure that I could only talk about Beauty and upload pretty photos of products, out of fear of losing Instagram followers, I want what I put out online to feel how I did 6 years ago when I felt passionate about blogging and the community as a whole seemed much, much nicer.

Obviously, there is nothing I can do about the direction the bloggersphere is going, but I do know one thing I can change, and that is my mindset, and how 'I' feel when I log online. So this update post won't contain any 'tea' on any negative experiences I've been a part of behind the scenes in the beauty community, nor will I share an in-depth story about the hardships I've gone through and health scares I have overcome because that would just be putting out negativity! I want to start afresh, feeling optimistic, passionate and truly happy to be back meeting fingers to keypad. I truly am looking forward to sharing a nice mixture of lifestyle and beauty posts on here. You can read more about me here, to get a rough idea of some of the posts you can expect to see in the future on JameyLynn.com. I hope you enjoy coming along on this new exciting journey with me.
