Hi everyone! I’m Ashley and I’m the creator of Yumeology.
I’m passionate about helping others create their dream lives through my blog, sharing with my readers essential advice, tips, and tricks on how to make dreams into reality.
So a little bit about myself. I used to work at a corporate job coming home exhausted after a long day at work and spending 3+ hours commuting. There were days when I had to show up to work, even during a hurricane. I was tired both physically and mentally.
I found myself spiraling into a mental and emotional breakdown, feeling utterly defeated by the constant hustle and lack of personal time. The relentless routine had become unbearable, and my well-being faltered under the weight of stress and exhaustion. It was during one of these overwhelming moments that I realized something had to change. I had to prioritize my mental health, so, I made the challenging decision to step back from my career and take some much-needed time off. I was lost and anxious, not knowing what to do.
Eventually, I decided to take refuge in the one place that felt like home – my grandmother’s house. Nestled in the calm of the countryside, her home was a sanctuary away from the chaos of city life. My grandmother, a wise and empathetic soul, welcomed me with open arms and a warm heart. Her words of wisdom were a soothing balm to my troubled mind. She encouraged me to take this time to truly understand what I wanted to do, rather than what society or my previous lifestyle had conditioned me to believe I should want.
Her words resonated with me deeply and I began my journey of self-discovery. I started to explore different activities, different hobbies, and different dreams. That’s when I realized my love for interior decoration, travel, and lifestyle planning. I realized that I was so fixated on the idea of needing to have a 9-5 corporate job because other people were doing it and I felt like that was the only thing that was right.
I realized that this was what I wanted to do and Yumeology was born out of this passion. Now, I spend my days sharing ideas and inspirations with my readers, helping them design their dream lives.
At Yumeology, you’ll find ideas for stunning home decor, inspiring travel recommendations, and lifestyle advice to get you closer to making your ideal life a reality. Join me on my journey as we make dreams or “yume” come true!
