I began this blog nearly three years ago as a place to share my life, to find myself and to just see what happens. When I started writing, I didn’t know what that would look like. I was living in LA feeling like I was being dragged around, constantly surrounded by people all fighting for the same thing that wasn’t even there. I don’t expect that to make sense to anyone unless you’ve ever felt that way.
This space has witnessed the fall of my career in music and once again the rise that would come after some much needed soul-searching.
This space has witnessed my love for fitness grow to new heights and supported me through the training of not only my first, but also my second half-marathon, something that I never dreamed possible even two years ago.
This space has cultivated some amazing friendships, ones that carry beyond the comments section and into real-life, supportive relationships with amazing people all over the world.
This space has provided me the opportunity to find my voice, in my writing and in my own self, to find the confidence to try new things, meet new people and get back in tune with who I am.
Contrary to how it may seem, this isn’t a post about the end of my blog – it’s a post about the beginning, a new beginning.
I’m not really sure what that may look like and chances are, I’ll be just as surprised as you to see what that means. I love my blog, I love the relationships that have come from it, I love writing, I love fitness, I love living healthy, but as times change, as we change, so must the blog. It’s time to make sure I’m writing for ME, not for the numbers (or more like the hope for numbers). I don’t want to be “another healthy-living blog” or just another amongst the masses.
I’m meant to do big things.
I don’t always know what that looks like. Scratch that. I don’t know what that looks like. But what I do know, is that it’s time to find out.
As I’ve been working out my goals for 2014, they’ve been very focused on my self-growth, on my career, on the person that I’m constantly striving to be. The blog is a part of that, but not in the same way it used to be – not in that “let’s grow this blog” kind of way…whatever that even meant.
So what does that mean?
You’ll still see me around but rather than daily posts, it’ll probably only pop in a few times a week. It’s about quality, not quantity. Besides, last I checked this blog is called Talk Less, SAY MORE. And that’s precisely what I’m striving for. I started this blog with this quote and nearly three years later, I find it just as motivating and just as relevant to my life…so today, I leave you with that.
I love how blogs change and shape you as much as they do. Happy New Year.
Happy New Year, Jennifer! I love it too, even though it always surprises me when it happens to ME! 😉
I’m planning to blog a little less in January too – so I’m glad I’m not the only one. I liked it best when I was doing 3 days a week, I’ve just had a lot to say recently. We can figure out what works for us – it’s our blogs after all! 🙂
SO true! I have a feeling it’ll be somewhere around 3 or 4 days/week but we’ll see. Whatever feels right. 🙂
Happy New Year! Can’t wait to see what this all means here!
Happy New Year, Julie! (And me too… 😉 )
Me too! 🙂
very well put. Have a Happy Day.
Happy New Year, Rick! Now, stop being sick!
I can’t see what 2014 brings…. for the BOTH of us. xoxo
Me too! <3 <3
I hope that 2014 is good to you! It sounds like it will be a great year for you! xoxo
Thanks, girl! I hope so. Sounds like you have a great year ahead too! 🙂
