So it’s been awhile. And when I say awhile, I mean it’s been over two months that I haven’t posted anything on The Bohemian Mermaid. Why this long break? Well, as much as I would like to say that I was off backpacking in the Outback or trekking through rainforests in Costa Rica, or even snorkeling in Fiji, this is far from the truth (though I have to admit that I “mentally” traveled to all of these places over the past few weeks). My absence was a result of a challenging and arduous semester coming to an end (but not before I wrote my first ever 15 page research paper). In just those few short weeks I’ve noticed a growth in maturity, wisdom, patience, determination, and work ethic that will resonate with me long after this semester. I’m realizing that there is indeed significance in each and every moment we live and experience. Just as there is always the opportunity to grow, to learn, and to love. When we see and acknowledge these ever-present opportunities, we can really learn to appreciate each moment. With that being said, I am truly excited to be releasing some more posts in the coming weeks. Everything from body care, summer ideas, swimwear reviews, food recipes, and more lifestyle posts and wild thoughts. I hope that you enjoy these coming posts and feel inspired to value, love, and appreciate the beautiful, amazing, and strong individual that you are.
