If I had to give my 2018 one word it would hands down have to be unpredictable! The first half of this year has been completely unpredictable, which turns out, was just what I needed!
Usually, at the end of every year, I sit down and create a hefty set of goals (for myself and my blog), design out a vision board, and start fresh with an insane list of things I want to accomplish. For the most part, that usually works pretty well for me.
However, as 2017 came to a close, I WAS NOT feeling myself and as a result was not feeling the content I was putting out.
I was overworked, burnt out, unmotivated, uninspired, and in general feeling pretty blah. So instead of charging full steam ahead in that state, I went all hands off everything that wasn’t a necessity.
I still had to work of course, but I cut back on extra hours committing only to my normal schedule. I hit pause on my blog and social media accounts and said no to anything I wasn’t already obligated to. I needed time to recalibrate, refocus, and tune in to ME mind, body, and soul.
So, what exactly did I do? Well, It was actually quite simple.
I got back to HAPPY.
That’s right, getting back to feeling like me was as simple as spending time doing more of what brought me joy! I finally went to real estate school so that I can obtain my Georgia RE license, I joined a new gym (more on that later), added new books to my library and read for pleasure, but most importantly I took time to do a complete rebrand and redesign of my website; and I’m loving it!
When you’re in this blogging space, it’s really easy to get caught up in what everyone else is doing and the never-ending comparison game. Before you know it, the blog is directing your thoughts and actions instead of the other way around.
On my break, I had to remind myself of why I started my blog and what I’ve hoped to accomplish with it five years from now. As I move forward you’ll continue to see a focus on lifestyle here. But I’ll so be throwing in some real estate and career-related discussions as well, all targeted towards women like me, navigating the highs and lows of their 30s. If that’s you definitely stick around (subscribe below) because I have a lot of good things in store.
As always, thanks for rocking with me! Until next time….
