My summer clients have gone home...the weather is slowly but surely changing...the days are getting shorter...the island is quieting down...and it is time to embrace the new season! Change is in the air and I have been feeling it and thinking about "WHAT IS NEXT?" for me personally and professionally. How do I become the best version of ME? What do I need to do to take my business to the next level? Am I ready to make and embrace change?
Nantucket is a magical place ALL year round! It has allowed me to heal. It is forcing me to see my flaws and my strengths. It is forcing me to come out of my shell. It is telling me to keep dreaming BIG; to not give up; to BELIEVE! Summer has been fun, but it is time to move on. It is time to get back into my blogging routine. It is time to write. It is time to focus on different topics that are now becoming more passionate to me. I want this space to be a place where readers come to be inspired, to laugh, to learn. I want to write more about how I am healing and letting go of my demons. I want to write about being single and what it is like and what I am learning. I want to showcase people who inspire ME. What do you think? Sound good...are you ready?
So "WHAT IS NEXT"...
Owning my OWN Shit:
This has been the biggest change for me thus far since moving to Nantucket! Do you know how hard it is to admit your faults and say them out loud to yourself and to others? It sucks. I had some incidents towards the end of the summer that was a slap in the face for me. They were signs that were telling me to "wake the F* up!!! And I will not lie that it wasn't until this past week that I finally started feeling better about everything because I owned my shit. I screamed it out loud. I talked it out. So now that it is out in the universe it is time. Time for changes to my health, to opening up to love, to just being the best version of ME!
Letting GO Of The Past:
I have always been VERY attached to my hair! I know it sounds crazy, but it is just one of those things about me. I wanted it long, luscious, and thick. I would never allow the stylist to cut off more than 1/2 an inch. As I have gotten older, my hair is no longer thick. It just did not look healthy. It looked weak and sad. (I told you I have an emotional bond to my hair...lol). So when I went to my stylist a couple of weeks ago, I knew it was time for a CHANGE. It was time to let go of the past. It was time for a fresh look. I just did it. I did not overthink it. I just went for it and BAM it was gone and gosh it felt good, like REALLY good! So here is the NEW me!
Figuring out what is my "HELL-YEAH":
If you asked me ten years ago what my profession would be, I would have NEVER EVER thought it would be where I am today and that is pretty awesome. I can never imagine going back into the corporate world (unless someone offered me a ridiculous salary, benefits, and location...obviously). I love the work that I do. I love to write...to be creative...to inspire others...to help people tell their story...to make them shine and know their true worth. I like being able to work from home and create my own schedule and do my work from anywhere.
Right now I am doing a little bit of everything, which is very time-consuming and some days leaves me scrambling and scatter brained, so it is time to focus. This is the perfect time to figure out what my "HELL-YEAH" is and commit to that and make that "HELL YEAH" become a success.
When I first saw the below image on Meg's Instagram page last week, it was something that really resonated with me! The past month I would say has been rough, but a major eye opener for me that is forcing me to look deep inside and to make changes that have been ready to happen, but I was never ready to make them happen. Things are about to get REAL! I want this to be a safe place where I can share my story and you can share yours. Where we can inspire each other...heal each other...motivate and educate each other to live our lives to the fullest. It is time to heal. It is time to nourish. It is time to grow. It is time to LOVE!
With all of this being said friends, I hope that you will embark with me on this new journey! It is going to be a wild ride, but a good one. There will be laughter and maybe tears, but there will be lots of joy. We will talk about food, health, love, and life. It is going to be awesome and I hope that you continue to follow me. Have a beautiful day friends!
Are you embracing the change in seasons?
What is your "Hell-YEAH"?
