2017 Motto – Reexamined

 

How I'm Continuing To Treat Myself With Respect and Kindness // Adventure In Lipstick

SO. If you’ve been following this space then WHEW I am sincerely sorry for the lack of posts. In fact, you might notice that all but one is now gone… Mostly because coming back here with all my half-started ideas, series that I gave up on and so many drafted posts I couldn’t even count them was overwhelming and made me want to quit this all together.

The solution?

Treat myself with respect and kindness.

The respectful and kind thing to do for myself and this blog? Start fresh. I want to enjoy coming here and writing posts, giving updates about my life and screaming about music, books and movies for you all to (hopefully) scream about with me. The best way to do that was to clean house. As lovely as some of my posts were (RIP my screaming over my Icelandic love, Júníus Meyvant) I needed a fresh start.

What does this mean now? My goal is to start off small – do two posts per week and focus on writing things that exhilarate me. As much as I love yelling about feminism and politics that just isn’t going to bring me joy in this space right now. As much as I love traveling and dreaming of going to new places writing about that isn’t going to bring me joy. Consider this a little “KonMari” for this website. Thank you to the ideas and posts that served me at the time. Goodbye to them now. This is the kind and respectful thing to do.

So. Now that I’m starting fresh I have a few ideas of what I want to write about. But I really really want to know what you, my readers, want to hear.

Let me know in the comments what type of content you’d like to see here in the future!
