I've Really Been Overusing The Word "Change"

The holidays are officially over. Wait, what? Which means I can no longer use the "I am on vacation" excuse for not getting up out of bed before 1pm. But on a brighter note I'm kicking my new morning routines ass. Yes I've managed to complete two full mornings of yoga, reading and prayer before I start my day. Only 19 more before it actually becomes a legit habit. Pray for me. Anyways, I noticed that through all of my "new year" changes that I have been planning and putting into action, I sort of forgot to include this blog. Now don't get me wrong I have some pretty high expectations for my little corner of the world but I have yet to plan out what I can do to get there. Ya'll remember a few weeks ago when I said that I feel like I wasn't being me on here and that I still felt like I needed to find my voice? Well yeah that's definitely happening. And If I put it on the blog that means it has to happen. I have been really over using the word "change" but I feel like this year will be all about that in every aspect in my life. So expect more of me, more of my personal life and thoughts. Not to be a Debbie Downer or a ball full of emotions on here but I feel like people can relate more to those who are not afraid to lay it all out and I have a lot I have been either holding in or writing down in my journal. I will also be bringing back the "Locals List" that I so sucked at in 2013, I enjoyed exploring my area and plan to keep that up this year. I once heard in a Mckenzie Eddy song "How vain is to sit down and write when you have not stood up to live" (a Henry David Thoreau quote). That really hit home for me. I cant expect to come here everyday and talk to ya'll about my "life" when I really don't have one. (I laughed and then got sad as I was typing that) but its the truth, I need to get out and experience life a little more. One thing I really want to add more than anything to this blog is a peak inside my work area and my creative routine. I am extremely passionate about my craft and I wan't you all to really get a feel of what I do.how_vain

As for the norm, my main goal is to keep this blog inspirational, like a breath of fresh air from the crazy world around us. I will also still be talking about Eclectic Star in the business section and providing any type of business tips that I come across. And my nail polish obsession will stay and I'm still trying to figure out how to incorporate my love for music more. Oh and whats change without a new look? Yes I know I said I wasn't touching my blogs design anymore but well I lied. With all of the changes that Eclectic Star is about to go under within the next month I wan't this blog to look similar (you know working on branding) But that probably won't happen until Feb.24 when the new Eclectic Star site is revealed, but we'll see.

I'm still very excited about 2014 and I hope I'm not just sounding like a broken record but ya'll I really feel like this year will be amazing! I just made some changes to my ad options as well, so be sure to check it out I would love to have you on my sidebar!
