Total Eclipse of the Heart

Way back when I started this blog in 2008 my only goal was to put up cute pictures of my kids and tell funny stories so my family who don't live near us could be up to date. Somewhere around 2010 I started gaining a lot of followers and it was mostly because I was sassy and snarky.

I still am... just differently.

I know it sounds stupid but dying on the table really changes you. Honestly, sometimes I'm physically and mentally too tired to really care about anything. But I have noticed that I'm generally nicer.

I will admit that sometimes having a brain injury doesn't allow me to stop and thinking something through before I say it. I've struggled with that but I feel like I'm getting better as time goes on.

I hate to say that I'm having a Perez Hilton moment but I am. I know I've had a few comments of people asking me when is sassy Sara coming back. I've ignored them for the most part and I know I blogged about maybe it's maturity or age, and the more I think about what it is... the less that I care.

I just know I'm going to be nicer. I'm going to be more productive. I'm going to be more positive, I want to lift people up.

But I swear to god, if you're wearing a romper I'm going to let you know you look ridiculous. I may even follow you to the bathroom and crack jokes about you being naked just to go pee. Because that's what real friends do. OBVIOUSLY. 

I'm going to be starting a fitness challenge pretty soon. It's going to be old school, I might even bring back the vlogs... that's assuming I can figure out how I did them in the first place. I will always give you the good and the bad. There's always going to be bad and I will never shy away from sharing that because what I am, and what I will always be, is 100% authentic. What you get on the blog is what you'll get in real life. Except in real life I'm not always wearing pants, or clean clothes for that matter, and my hair is in a messy bun so often it retains the shape when I take my ponytail holder out. I'm going to focus on giving you really good content but still have fun. 

I will always encourage people to email me if they have a topic they'd like to see me write about (sarastrand9438 AT hotmail DOT com) and I will see what I can do. 

I feel like I'm entering an entirely new season of my life and it's kind of weird, like I'm physically turning around a corner. And it's OK. I'm OK with this because I'm not the same gal I was all those years ago so hopefully you'll help me figure out what I'm supposed to do next.

I used to blog my raw emotion and then I was stupid and let people know I had a blog so now I have to be buttoned up lol. I miss my diary blogging days!

You really get comments asking when Sassy Sara is coming back? Sheesh. And honestly, I think most people change and grow, and that's okay! You don't have to have the same type of blog you did years ago. I know I don't!! Good luck with the fitness challenge. I really need to do more fitness wise. Sigh.
