In the beginning of 2011 a much younger Rachel started a blog called Rachel In Flight (just so you know…she is still pretty young.) The idea was that I desperately needed saving from the Corporate Finance job that I was plugging away at. I craved a creative outlet as my days were spent in the abyss of spreadsheets and numbers, so I logged onto the web and started this site. This little space was going to save me.

Over the years I wrote countless pieces on beauty, style, home decor, and of course, travel. There were a few redesigns along the way and even a few collaborations with some really cool brands. While I wasn’t making millions (yet) from my little space on the world wide web, I was getting to express myself and that was good enough.

The last time we spoke, I had just returned from a trip around the World, literally. I had spent two months abroad with my (very) handsome other half and I was on cloud nine. As you might expect, a month in Europe and a month in SE Asia will do that to you. What I didn’t expect was the fall from that cloud and how it would take its toll on me, but more on that later.

Without me even realizing it, the renewal for the blog came and passed and before long was gone. I had let life get so far in the way that it wasn’t until recently that I realized how much I missed this place. Lucky for me the domain was still available, but nothing really comes without a cost, right? As I was repurchasing my space on the web, Go Daddy informed me that they could not recover any of the content from Rachel In Flight. Umm…excuse me? I was crushed. I could not understand how I could lose something that took me years to build in just a matter of 2 months. How?? Why?? I had lost it all… all of the photos, the campaigns, every single word I had ever typed.Β 

Luckily for my sanity, I have a newfound love for meditation. It is something that has transformed both my outlook on life and my inward reflection of myself. During a recent meditation on the floor of my living room, I started to think about renewal and what an empty Rachel In Flight means for me at this point in my life. Google actually defines renewal as β€œan instance of resuming an activity or state after an interruption.” Well, there was definitely an interruption and I guess without getting a choice in the matter, this will be my renewal.

So, here we are. Back to the beginning and somehow it feels right. I am excited to be back and to work on content for both you and me because remember, this little space is going to save me. I still work in finance, but I have big plans for myself so I hope you all enjoy the flight.
