Happy 2014 lovelies! I took a nice loooooong break (in blog world 3 weeks may as well be a year, ha!) from blogging and even a tiny one from social media. You know I love all of you to pieces however I needed a moment to live in the moment– without social media documentation, to be still, and to reflect on the most magical year I had along with MME. This year was the first year that I didn’t sit down and make a resolution list, that I didn’t tell myself I’d eat healthier, that I didn’t obsess over 5 or 10 vanity pounds. Instead I took a long hard look at what 2013 meant to me and if I’d held up my end of the bargain, which was to cherish the year.
So, did I? Honestly yes and no. There were several times in 2013 that I found myself skipping and jumping right over a moment that I should have taken time to smell the roses and truly cherish. I looked back through my social media feeds and it all starting hitting me like a ton of bricks. I had been so focused on giving you more of what I thought you wanted to see that I started to gloss over the incredible, spontaneous, and unbelievable moments that you won’t find on my instagram, twitter, g+, fb page, or pinterest page. It made me stop and think really hard and I wrote down two words, to be. 2014 is the year for me to be content.
Now that I’m comfortably leaning into year 4 of my business I’ve learned that each year has been a turning point in my life and at every turn I’ve had the know-how to step back and evaluate. Year one was all about facing the learning curve, year two was the year to grow, year three was the year I craved more for my business and I pushed myself to stay on my A game, and year 4 is the year that I’m claiming as the year to be content, to be still, to listen twice as hard as I speak, and to follow the heart of MME.
…and now to give a much deserved thanks to all who have been apart of the MME journey. Your words of comfort and advice, your love, and your praise and feedback have helped to carry my business to the ears of clients, future clients, editors, and so many more and I am forever grateful to have you in my life. Ok 2014, now I think I’m ready.
