When I started this blog, my intention was to focus on fashion. It’s a topic I know well, but I have not felt inspired to write about it since I completed my wardrobe challenge. When I learned about the beauty subscription service, I was excited. The idea of receiving new products every month and writing about them seemed like a fun new direction for my blog. I eagerly subscribed to multiple services and watched the products roll in.
A funny thing happened…
As the packages arrived every month, I started feeling a sense of dread. Sure, I’d received a few cool things over the duration of the blog series, but most of the items were collecting dust. I donated or gave away many products that were not useful to me. It was nice to share the wealth, but I still felt wasteful.
Finally, it hit me like a truck. The reasons for my apathy towards fashion and cosmetic writing became clear. I don’t want more stuff!
I’ve had so many blessings over the last year both professionally and personally. My cup is full. New clothes and cosmetics are not giving me the rush I would normally crave. I have new desires.
What do I want now?
I want simplicity. I want health. I want to be creative. I want experiences more than I want things. I may still post about shopping or great products from time to time, but it will no longer be my central focus. I can’t tell you what my focus will be, that will happen organically. In my day job, I spend a lot of time helping others pursue a more fulfilling life. I hope I can bring that purpose here in some way.
