Hello, welcome to Miss Tae Lo!

My name is Lauren, and I’m so happy that you’re here:)

I have so many hopes and dreams for this blog and the community that I hope to build with you all. I’ve wanted to start my own blog for about four years, but until now, I just couldn’t get anything to stick. I tried two times before this to put my passion into action, but without success.

But then, this last year, my entire life changed.

Since I was in middle school, I have suffered from severe depression and anxiety that held me back. I dealt with it as best I could by hiding and ignoring it until I turned 18 and all hell broke loose. My life went down into a spiraling mess and I was so lost, but because I hid from all my problems, I didn’t even acknowledge that I had lost control of my life and my future.

In 2017, I realized how close I was to graduating college, and that I had no idea what I wanted to do or where I wanted to go. To say the least, I had been crippling myself on a daily basis from all the bad choices and coping mechanisms that I had used for years and all at once they hit me in the face.

I had moved down to Texas for the summer to spend time with family and was confronted with all the unhealthy ways I had been using to avoid things in my life because I could no longer participate in them. It was like the ultimate detox: the first few weeks were awful, and then I started to feel better. And after that I finally started to help myself after years of self-destruction.

I finally understood that there was no reason that I had to keep living in such a negative way; and you shouldn’t have to either. Life can be so much more if we just take a good look at ourselves and decide to make a claim on our future and on our happiness. There is no reason that anyone should continue to live in despair when there is another choice.

I’m not saying I have all the answers to anything, because I definitely don’t, but through this blog I hope to share the journey I’m on in a way that might be helpful to you. I want to share all the tips and ways that I have started to improve my life, the insights I’ve had through my own wellness journey, and all the ways I’ve started to see positive changes.

Hopefully, there will be a decent amount of humor, some amateur philosophical discussion, and an OOTD post or two, but I think that that is all just a part of the makings of a good life.

We may be young, but there is no reason to put off loving our lives.

Over and out,

Lauren
