Most amazing Post I have been able to write/co-write


My name is Sarah and I, like you, am a fellow blog reader of Nadina.

I first came across Nadina's blog in the middle of this summer. I was blog surfing and searched for inspirational quotes when I found her blog.

I did a quick scroll down her blog getting ready to click over to another one when some words popped out at me "Numb to the pain, Numb to the emotion, Numb to thought." (This was in one of her blog posts called "Numb") I couldn't help but to keep reading her post, after that I found myself captivated by another, and another, until I looked at the clock and realized I had been reading her blog for several hours. I felt I had so many things in common with her, a stranger whom I never met. She gave so much insight on life, on past experiences and even future decisions.
Alpha Omicron Pi just recolonized the Phi Upsilon Chapter at Purdue University.

Nadina has written a few posts on her experience being a part of a sorority, Alpha Omicron PI. I was so inspired by her blog that by the end of the summer I decided that I too, would try to join a sorority. When I found out the same sorority she was in was also going to be at my University, I was ecstatic!

"Yay!" I thought, "I get to experience everything that Nadina talked about."

Before recruitment I found myself very nervous, no matter how many blog posts of Nadina's I read, I could not find the motivation to go through with it. I thought I would shoot her a Facebook message, just out of the blue. I didn't think she would reply but just thought I would give it a shot.

A couple of weeks passed and...

 Nadina replied to me!!

Not only did she reply but she apologized for the delay in the response. I couldn't believe it. The person who I've been so inspired by, who I thought I would never get to talk to is not only replying to me but offering me advice and help.

She was so kind and sweet to me, she took time out of her day to encourage me as well as give me advice.

 I could not thank Nadina enough for all of her support.

The point is, Nadina's blog is not only relatable, inspiring, and insightful but she herself is a kind, caring, and helpful person.

Thank you for being so awesome Nadina.

I can't thank you enough.
I was searching on facebook and I had noticed in my over flow message box on facebook  I had a message I took a look and this is what I found:

I saw this, I had no idea what to write back, I was soo happy I could have cried.  If you read my Hiatus blog, this girl is the reason I found to blog again!
 She made my day, even though she will argue I made her day!

This message was seriously the most amazing feeling.  I thank you Sarah for inspiring me again and realizing why I love blogging so much!!!!

I am back from my Hiatus!

 Oh my goodness...  It feels sooo good to be back!!!! I am very sorry for the hiatus, I was doing 15+ hour days with school and work.  But I am back and better than ever.  I am  a licensed esthetician doing what I am super passionate about, I couldn't be happier!
So the first thing I decide to do after getting my life figured out, blogging!!!!  How much I have missed it!!  But trust me, all my good advice hasn't been doormat. I have been told a few times recently that I should write a book or teach a class. I think I'll just go back to my small followers on this :)...

 I have so much going on in my head I don't even really know to put it all to words!  In my hiatus, I  fell in love, had my heart broken, fell in lust, fell out of lust, had fun and now I am with a man who not only makes me the happiest person, he will also be surely helping me provide material for this blog....We have  a lot of history(side info, we met 2 years ago...for him he says it was love at first sight but yet  our timing never worked out the way we wanted, finally our stars have aligned). 

In my hiatus I have learned a lot, and I am ready to share my info with you.  
What is up and coming:
~New formats
~Weekly skin tips as well as my Monday quotes  to get you through the week
~Guest writers
~Much, much more

I have more time and new found perspective to being able to write this, I hit a road block because I really wasn't thinking I was writing to anyone.  But then I was found on facebook by a women who completely  changed my outlook and has give me inspiration to know that at least one person has and will be affected by this blog. (I am hoping one of  these posts she will be writing as a guest writer about her experience).  Overall she read my blog and is now pledging my sorority  AOII  at Purdue University. I thank her for renewing my inspiration to write my blog.  I thank her and you can thank her too, because there is more to come!!
