It occurred to me as I was re-imaging this space that when I started this blog I never really took the time to introduce myself.
So hello! I’m Belinda, but you can call me Bee (most people do). I’m breaking this down into three things you should know about me and some fun facts – so keep reading to find out what I’m passionate about, inspired by and the things that I crave.
3 things you should know about me
Well it has certainly been a minute hasn’t it? It’s been a whirlwind of life around here too, which caused this space to take a bit of a backseat. 2018 was a year of learning and growing for me, both figuratively and literally – because I spent the majority of the year growing a human!
How many times have you opened your computer only to find five different tabs open with article headlines like, “Five Simple Ways to Get What You Want” or “Do These Two Moves and Eat These Three Things to Look Like [insert celebrity here]”?

Plus I’m fairly certain I’ve never not opened an article that says “Here’s What Happened When I did X or cut out Y for 30 days” (I mean, I must know what happened!).

Take a class. Get a new job. Go to the gym. Call your family more. The list goes on and on and on. Over time inertia takes hold and it becomes easier to not do anything than to try and tackle the things you desperately want to do, when you also have never ending list of things you need to do.
This is exactly where I was last summer.
