I started 2022 with a completely different mindset for my love of blogging and sharing photos. We all know that Instagram is so fickle and you never know what to expect. I was having a conversation with a fellow blogger and she had mentioned how tiresome posting on social media can be and that she has had to take a break. I often feel that way and I did take a break at the end of last year and refocused on what I want my brand and blog to look like.
So continuing with my opening statement: I started 2022 with a goal of focusing on my mental, physical and most importantly spiritual health. And making that I priority- So far I have been able to maintain that 60% of the time. which is great for me! So I also wanted to share things that I love (more interior design) and that I want to share and take on a very limited amount of sponsored partnerships. Because authenticity and being creative is what I love most- That, I have been able to accomplished. I’ve turned down way more and accepted very few. And Most of those I’ve accepted are repeats and brands I wear, buy from personally and love. I’ve also been very free about what I post, If I love it and it speaks to me and its beautiful, I’m going to post it. Even if I only get 10 likes and lose followers. You’ve probably noticed more interior design, lifestyle post and flower arranging- And it’s been so freeing to have that mindset.
One other thing that I have added to my mental health list is doing things that I love, like going to the beach, gardening and horseback riding. I’ve received questions about the latter and wanted to share that I used to ride when I was a teenager and horses are *VERY prominent here where I live. Some of the most popular horses live here and have raced or been shown all over the world. So I’m very familiar with horse life- being from horse capital. So I recently started riding again and it has been Oh so lovely and actually kinda natural. I thought I’d be nervous since I haven’t rode in so long. But I’m so glad that I took up this old adventure and got back in the saddle. It helps me appreciate nature and the beauty all around me- instead of hanging out on my phone so much.
