I apologize for the break in the DESIGN YOUR LIFE series. Things have been much busier than I expected this week… well, really much busier all of December, really. (It’s holiday season, why did I expect things to slow down?!) Which left me with little time to snag someone for a DYL post.
Think About It
But the good news is that this leaves me with a chance to run a new series I’d like to start in 2010 called “Think About It.” Over the past few months I have had a lot on my plate. And in trying to do each thing very well, I have let a lot of the theory behind MakeunderMyLife go by the wayside here on the blog. To be honest, it has been easier to write about things that are actively going on in my life (like decorating, Jess LC, Spring, and exfoliating) rather than talk about the principals I believe in. Principals take time, thought, and careful writing. Which is hard to accomplish during a full work day. But the quality and usefulness to you, my dear readers, is diminished when those topics are all the blog is about.
So one of my intentions for 2010 is to bring back this thoughtfulness to MakeunderMyLife. After all, I am extremely proud and humbled to be fulfilling my purpose here on the blog. And to dilute this vocation with nothing but recipes, interviews, and decorating is doing us all a disservice. This is not to say that those more lighthearted topics won’t still be included, in fact, to a large extent they will still be the most popular topics. But a weekly dose of “Think About It” might keep the bigger picture in perspective as well.
So stay tuned for some thought provoking entries in the year to come! And thank you for sticking with me while I learn to balance all that is in my life right now.
