Happy New Year!
A few weeks ago, I was home alone and decided to drop everything and do nothing. I just wanted to be alone with my thoughts. Immediately, I began thinking about my blogging behavior and realized why I was resistant to something I had enjoyed and loved. My passion was waning, why?
I realized that I still like blogging but a sole DIY focus no longer served all of me. A few months prior, I made a commitment to do some personal soul searching and it has been, and continues to be, one of the best decisions and journeys of my life. Living authentically requires honesty, hard work and accountability. It requires you to show up and live live consciously, all the while, staying in the present moment.
I was changing and evolving while The DIY Spot remained the same; no longer in sync, I was finding it increasingly difficult to write posts that I was excited about. It became clear that I needed to shift my blogging voice as well.
Don’t get me wrong, I still love DIY and the creativity it brings; it is a big part of who I am and gives me such joy. However, it is not all I am. I am also passionate about the tiny remnants- a profound quote, a powerful lyric, an expression of gratitude or a discarded item – that might get overlooked yet have the potential to have great significance in my life and, hopefully, yours as well.
And so a new year brings new direction and a new name, Meaningful Remnants. I hope you will continue the journey with me.
Wishing you a Happy New Year filled with blessings beyond measure.
