I’m so excited to be back!

Over the last couple weeks, I have worked on redesigning the website and creating a new logo (see below)!

OFFICIAL BALANCE LOGO

As I have stated in my post My Intentions For 2019, I explained that one of my intentions for 2019 was to communicate openly and let others know what I am feeling. Well, this semester has brought more change to my life than I intended and I am nothing but excited for the future.

For the first time in over a year, I feel like I have my mental health in a stable and extremely healthy place. YAY! Honestly, I cannot tell you how much of a positive difference this has been in my life. I stress to find what works for you and talk to someone that can help.

On another note, I am EXTREMELY excited to say that I have CHANGED my major from Elementary Education to Communication & Journalism with an emphasis in Advertising/PR. This is a perfect fit for me and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store!

But my mouth is watering about this amazing new HEALTHY recipe on Balance Sweat & Cheers!
