Do you ever get the nagging feel that you need a big change? Do you listen to that feeling, that instinct? Recently I’ve been feeling this a lot and I knew it had to do with my blog. I’ve spent a long time thinking about it and finally I have listened to my instinct and have decided to make some BIG changes to this blog. And when I say big, I mean big!
I’ll be taking the summer off to work on my blog. I am very excited about what is to come but also nervous as I’m really shaking things up. Since I started blogging, I’ve never made a change this big but this feels so right at this moment in time. I can’t say much more right now but I can’t wait to share it all with you in September.
Once I had made the decision to make this change, I stumbled upon a podcast called Happier with Gretchen Ruben. Gretchen and her sister chat on the podcast and share little tips to live a happier life. One of the episodes that caught my attention was ‘design your summer‘. The idea is to to change things up over the summer – this could be a simple change in routine or trying a new project or making a weekly lunch date with friends or planning a weekly adventure with your kids or learning a new instrument. It really could be anything that makes your summer memorable, different and enriches your life.
This idea of ‘designing your summer’ and spending the time with intention rather than letting the days drift by really resonated with me. And inspired me even more to pursue my big change. My summer will end up looking very different to my previous summer’s and I’m excited about that. Listen to the episode and it might inspire you to switch things up for your summer.
For now, it’s farewell from me for the summer and I will see you back here in early September with some very, very exciting new stuff. And remember if your instinct is telling you that you need a change, go for it – maybe even this summer. Have a wonderful season whatever you do and I can’t wait to see you back here in September.
