I meet the person behind Chasing Joy, Arlett, on Twitter during #commenthour...I think. She is such a warm and kind person that I feel like I have know her for years despite having never met her in person. She has an amazingly open and honest blog that is an inspiration to me not just as a blogger but as a person. She speaks to everyone who has ever lost their way no matter how brief.
In her own words:
Chasing Joy is a blog about me, a woman in her 30s who has overcome the most difficult time in her life by focusing on and going after Joy.
In about a year and a half my life changed and the vision I had of my future was erased. I lost myself to the sadness. I could not find my way back to that light-hearted and optimistic girl that I use to be, not to mention I also gained 40lbs (gasp!!!) in a year due to all the stress.
This quest for Joy is my way back to being happy and staying happy again after so much heartache; to not only find my old self but to improve upon it.
