Hey guys! Welcome back. I hope you are having a fantastic day. Today I wanted to do something that I hadn’t really planned to do, but after giving it a lot of thought, I feel that it is time and I am ready. So if you remember back at the beginning of the month I did a whole rebranding. I rebranded the blog from what it looked like to what I chose to share with you. I took all of the content ideas I had and threw out a bunch of the things that I didn’t feel like fit within the brand anymore. And while I am still figuring some things out and working through everything, I am happy to say that it seems to be going pretty well and everyone responded really great to it.
So a lot of changes happened back at the beginning of the month. Most of those changes you saw. I rebranded. I changed my focus. I brought in some new ideas and new people. I completely changed the game. I went from one post a day to multiple posts a day. Why? Because I am determined to bring you the very best content that I can. I want to inspire you and give you all the information and all the resources that I have. And I have the desire to write every single day and give you everything I can. I know most people only post once a day or maybe even less than that. But thing about creating content whether it’s on a blog or on YouTube or on social media, you have to do what works for you. I was limiting myself when I really didn’t want to. I was telling myself I could only post once a day because that’s what I thought I had to do.
But this year I decided to change that. Will there be days where there is only one post? Yes. If that’s all I have time for or all I have to share than that’s what I will give. I’m not forcing myself to write more or share more than I can. But I’m also not forcing myself to write less or share less because I think I have to. Because ultimately it’s my blog and my voice. Only I can make these decisions about what I want to do and how much I want to share. It’s these decisions that help set me apart from the thousands of other bloggers out there. So you have to decide if you want to stick around or not.
So what all of this boils down to is one big change that I committed to at the beginning of the year. This one change has drastically impacted both my personal life and my professional life. This one change is something that I had a really hard time with before, and while it’s still difficult I can see the value in it so I know it’s worth sticking to and getting through the rough time. And maybe this change will help you.
The thing is, for my entire life up until this point I was 100% the kind of person who looked for approval and validation from other people. When I decided I wanted to do something or said I was going to do something I didn’t really do it unless other people were on board with it. So that led to me changing my mind a lot or not following through with things. It led to me not experiencing certain things or going through with what I wanted a lot of the time.
I started to see that my life was sorely lacking in a lot of areas. I wasn’t growing the way I wanted. I wasn’t seeing the progress and results that I wanted. I wasn’t as happy as I knew I could be. So at the beginning of this year I made one very significant change that has completely changed my life. And that change was to make decisive choices. I decided that I was going to start making my own decisions and sticking with them. Is it easier said than done? Absolutely. There are times that I really struggle. But I knew if I wanted to get anywhere with my life and do the things that I really wanted to do and become the person that I want to be that I have to start making decisive choices.
In both my personal life and my professional life, making these decisions has completely changed my life. I no longer feel as though I am sacrificing what I want for other people. I no longer feel that I have to silence my own wants and needs for those of others. Because I know at the end of the day I have to live my own life. Some people may not agree with every decision I make and that’s okay. Because I know I have to make these decisions for myself. It’s up to me to make things better.
So I am going to show up everyday and give you the very best of me that I can give you. And I ask that you do the same. When I rebranded I said I want to focus more on female empowerment and that started with myself. I knew it was time to start looking inside and having internal conversations about what is best for me. And now I challenge you to do the same. I challenge you to have the conversations with yourself as often as you can. Because it’s up to you to become the person you want to be. It’s not going to be easy. Most days are an uphill battle. But I promise you will start to see the value in it and it will be worth it.
