I’ve been thinking a lot lately. Remembering my past and comparing it to the present. Trying to figure out my purpose.
Life with three is extremely busy.
I really “love” how people who don’t know me well assume that I have my shit together. LOL. You see what I want you to see.
The fights, the tears, the mess, the hustle, the clutter. I’ve wanted to give up on my blog so many times this year but never once did I pull the trigger.
I mean can you blame me?
I was working full time, being a mom, pregnant, and blogging.
The disorganization of my house has become unbearable. Even more so since having Isaiah.
But I continue. Because my hard work is finally paying off and for that, I will not apologize for.
So please, never compare your life to mine. Because you really have no fucken idea.
After having Isaiah, I toyed with the idea of rebranding and changing my name to something that was more relevant.
However, after some thinking, I decided against it.
Raising Jay & Abel is the brand I created and to change it, would greatly impact my business. Therefore, the name stayed.
As the new year approaches, the name might change but eh, it’s honestly it’s not that big of a deal for me.
Some things that I will be doing is decreasing the amount of writing and blogging that I do. Instead, I will be focusing on videos to share my thoughts and opinions.
A couple of reasons:
- Blogging has become oversaturated (IMO)
- My diagnosis of “Ulnar nerve entrapment” in my right arm still causes me pain after I write. Read more about that here: Ulnar Nerve Entrapment
There will be a new logo and perhaps a new blog layout, but overall, things will stay the same until 2018!
I Choose Joy
In the past two and half years, I’ve seen bloggers compete, complain, whine, cry, fight, and I’m over it. I choose to surround myself with people who have nothing but words of encouragement (and maybe virtually slap me when I need a reality check).
People who can have meaningful conversations. You know conversations that don’t always surround blogging and social media. Because let’s face it, there are life-changing things that are going on, much larger than your Instagram.
I want to get to know the REAL you. NOT what you portray online. So if that sounds like you, let me know 🙂
And just remember, I’m not a quitter. I’m a fighter. Instead of bowing out graciously, I will come for you in 2018.
