Where to begin? I go by Elsie B. I feel like everything I could or will say on here is just going to be cliche! “I’m just a girl trying to navigate my 20s. lol.” But it’s true. I am. I live with my amazing partner, our beautiful cat, and our adorable dog. We recently moved from the bustling city of Houston to the sleepy town of San Antonio. This year in San An, my main goal is to focus on enhancing my life and my relationship with him. I feel like this is kind of a year off of real life, but maybe this is real life, and I’ve just been living wrong in the past. Too focused on my job and the way things could be, but now I’m just trying to focus on and appreciate the way things are. Either way, I’m trying to take each day one day at a time by just breathing and being here with him.
Why I Started This Blog
I started this blog because I’m slowly but surely changing my life. I consider myself to be somewhat of an enlightened person. I understand the importance of mindfulness and meditation, gratitude and happiness, but I can’t help but feel unfulfilled in life. And that’s hard to admit. I know my life is great, but I also know that I can make it greater, and I plan to do that.
There are so many things that I want to do! And I’m starting this blog because I’m going to do them all! Maybe this blog will turn into a To-Do list, but not a to-do list because that has such a negative connotation. Maybe more of a like a bucket list. A San An Bucket List. A SABL haha. Every new project I start, I’m going to document it on here. Whether it’s a minimalist venture, a DIY craft, a hiking excursion, planting attempt, or natural beauty regimen just to name a few. There are so many new things that I want to do! And I’m super excited to start doing them and start generating more fulfillment in my life!
What I Hope To Gain
I hope to gain insights into myself and different ideas and ways that I’ve improved or can improve my life. I think we all want our lives to be as amazing as they can be, and by starting this blog, I hope to achieve a tangible account of what I’ve done to improve my life, why I did them, how they made me feel, and if I should do them again. This is a learning process, just like life itself, and I’m really excited to see what I learn about me, and maybe even what I can help others learn about themselves.
