So, here we go.
Life has been quite, quite interesting since the last time I sat down and wrote something personal. If you follow me on IG, you might recall me mentioning in a Story that I was going to be taking a little break from my brand to take care of my mental health. Boy, did I really need a break.
it’s a very long story that I will be more than happy to share at length in a future post, but just to give everyone some context on where exactly I’ve been for the last few months – I have been picking up the pieces of a sudden mental breakdown. At 22 years old, I found myself in a situation that was too much for me to handle on my own and the only thing I could do was drop everything and get help.
For the last few months, I have been actively participating in therapy. Psychotherapy, to be specific. Like I said, I will be creating a separate post that will go into explicit detail about my mental health diagnosis and the progress of my therapy (trust me, it is heavy stuff), but I just didn’t want to leave you guys out of the big picture.
It’s kind of crazy for me to realize how much of my life has been documented by this little blog project. It’s even crazier, and a little scary, to think that I really want to take this to the next level.
I’m not too sure exactly how to explain myself, but I just feel I could be offering so much more than just a lifestyle blog.
Now, don’t get me wrong guys – I fucking LOVE YourGirlChase! The people and opportunities that this blog brought into my life are priceless. That being said, after taking time to step back and seriously analyze what makes me happy – I’m sorry to say that hosting JUST another fashion and beauty blog unfortunately isn’t doing it for me anymore.
I hope you guys will all support me in the next chapter of my life – which is something that I am low-key scared to announce out loud.
Ladies and gentlemen.
Friends and fam.
I am in the midst of launching YourGirlChase: The Podcast.
Yup. You read that right. I, Perla Chase, am going to attempt to expand my platform to a whole new medium that is completely foreign to me. Although I am disgustingly scared at the thought of putting myself out there in the form of a podcast, I’m more scared at the thought of holding myself back and missing out on new adventures.
I mean, that is exactly what I did with this blog and it turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!
Expect more information to come about YourGirlChase: The Podcast as it is still a work in progress, but I am SO excited and can’t wait to see where it takes me.
Now, I flipping hate when people ask you to subscribe to their YouTube channel or beg for engagement . . . but I’m gonna be really real for a moment and encourage the fuck out of you guys to listen to my podcast (once it launches, of course) and please support me on Patreon!
It would mean the world to me and if you like the type of content I curate for this blog, then I’m pretty damn positive that you’ll LOVE YourGirlChase: The Podcast. Like I said, I will have further information for you guys about my podcast very, very soon! I hope that you’ll listen and love it just as much as you love the other weird shit I do.
If you made it to the end of this post – I love you and I appreciate your time more than you’ll ever know.
For someone who was supposed to take a break from everything, I just can’t help actively following my heart – it always leads me to a new adventure. Sorry for being so fucking sappy but I’m a hopeless romantic so . . . it’s kinda what I do, ya know?
Thank you all for the endless support!! You’re the realest. Till next time 🙂
