It's been awhile. 2018 is among us. Resolutions were made, and I may have already failed... whoops.
As you can tell, I've taken some space from this blog for awhile. I wanted to start the new year well and with high hopes. I have however been thinking a lot about this blog. What is this? What is it used for? How do I express myself to you, the reader?
I think there is always the risk of having a psuedo-personality when portraying yourself online. There is the risk of masking your true self before hundreds of people. And I am longing to be one that does not do that for you.
If there is one lesson I've learned from 2017 it is to be authentic. I'm not talking about Instagram's #liveauthentic. I'm talking being myself and being real with you all. I celebrate the fact that I can be a serious, deep thinker yet a goofy, wild child.
So as we look towards the future I promise to be me. I promise to be silly. I promise to laugh. I promise to tell real stories. I promise to share my authentic opinion on products. I promise to be Erik.
This is me.
