I really doubted this day would actually come, I've toiled with this decision for weeks now and contemplated even more about how or when to do it. I hadn't planned to end this today, I actually have outfit photos I wanted to post, but today feels right so I am going with it. Blogging has been such a huge part of my life the past 2.5 years, I've met so many fabulous people and gotten to grow in a supportive community. I have experienced some amazing opportunities and had the chance to work with people and brands that I never imagined I would. But I am at a place in my life where there are so many other facets I want to explore, risks I want to take, and adventures I want to go on that I am unable to do while also giving Jasmin daily the attention that it deserves. This is in no way shape or form a post to bash blogging or those who share their lives publicly because I follow you and have done it myself but I have also stopped indulging in life's candid moments because I am too busy trying to capture the perfect shot.
I think the extra push came from me starting a new career this week, one that I have dreamt about pursuing for as long as I can remember. Don't get me wrong I absolutely love blogging, but I also love a lot of other things, like getting lost in a book, learning a new language, spending time with loved ones without thinking about how to create an Instagrammable moment out of it, leaving the house without my phone and being worry free. I want to get engrossed in the little things, and this isn't to say that you can't do that while blogging, I don't want to discourage or discredit this for anyone, it is possible and it is amazing, but it just isn't possible for me and my life currently.
I have no doubts I will be back to blogging, maybe even sooner rather than later, but for right now I am gong to take a step back, soak up every moment, and stop worrying about "likes" and prime posting times, put down the screens and really live my life to the absolute fullest. I hope you guys can support and respect my decision and that you'll continue to be my friends even when I am not Jasmin daily the fashion blogger!
