The reason why I'm quitting being a perfect home decor blogger.

Last night after scrolling Instagram for a short chunk of time, I thought, "You know what? I'm done! I'm tired of trying to look perfect." That's when it hit me. Why am I trying to be like everyone else? We all know that bloggers throw the pile of laundry off to the side just to get the "perfect" shot then edit it and add few filters to make it look better. Not everyone tells the whole truth and I was just flat out D.O.N.E with that life. Trying to have pretty pictures and a pretty home 24/7 will steal the creativity and fun out of your entire life. #SoDone. It left me uninspired, tired, emotional, and burnt out. I could write a book about the secret life of home decor bloggers. No lie. 

Let me start out by saying that if you haven't already noticed, things are changing around here. I'm transforming Vintage Romance Style into BLOOM+BURGEON  as a way to escape the perfectionism that comes with being a DIY and home décor blogger. Life isn't perfect so why do we put up a façade that we are? BLOOM+BURGEON will be a community where we can ALL come together with our imperfections and lift one another up. A place for us to BLOOM and BURGEON (flourish and thrive) right where God has planted us for now even if the soil seems like it sucks. Since this is a place for honesty, my soil is looking a little dry to the world but to God I know he is working it into something amazing where I can flourish. Cuz' hunny right now I don't feel like I'm flourishing at all. 

I also felt like VRS was putting me inside a box and I just didn't want to be in that box anymore. I want to be able to share my struggles and victories and with being confined to just home décor and projects I felt like it was out of place. There are so many of us who struggle with health and emotional issues and I want to talk about it! Everything has a reason and a season. It also takes time to find where God wants you planted and then it takes time to bloom and thrive. 

This is also going to be a place where I can be myself and find others that suffer from invisible issues. There are also stigmas that come with those issues and I want to help break those. Now do I accept everyone's medical diagnosis? NO WAY! God is bigger than any diagnosis so I will be believing for your healing too. Also, God doesn't make people sick. Satan knows who is powerful and he'll do anything to stop their destiny. We are warriors and WE WILL FIGHT!

As things unroll with me, I will share more, but for now let's get this community going! It doesn't matter if you are "sick" or not! We are here to support one another in all situations so that we are able to grow and thrive. 

Don't forget that God is so good and that you can find me on INSTAGRAM HERE so we can chat! Use the hashtags #SayNoToPerfect and #BLOOMandBURGEON
