It's been a year? Already?

October 3, 2017

October is my favorite month. It's my birthday month. It's health literacy month. It's breast cancer awareness month. And now it is my blogaversary month!


Somehow it's been a year since I started this blog. I'm not really sure how the time went so fast but it did. I haven't blogged in a while mostly due to trying my hardest to find a good work life balance. It has been a great year, complete with a new job and new opportunities. I started this blog as a way to get some experience in public health, while sharing something that I was passionate about with all of you.


It has paid off.


I got an awesome job in my field back in February. You may remember that I wrote about a new opportunity in my Walking into 2017 post. I was scared to take it, because it wasn't a pretty package. The job required me to take pay cut, spend more in travel expenses and lose my healthcare insurance. I struggled through the summer, but was offered a permanent position, which came with a raise and great benefits. It was worth it! And most recently, I secured my first speaking engagement as a health literacy consultant.


It has been a great year for me professionally and a year with a lot of personal growth. All of which I am thankful for. I hope to find the work/life balance that I have been so desperately searching for so that I can get back to posting more regularly. 


Thank you for all of the support and encouragement that each of you have offered this year. Whether it was reading a post, following me on social media or speaking positive words over my life, you are greatly appreciated!


Until next time, I wish you all a great October!
