First Official Post: 2017 Recap & 2018 Focus
Alright, so #lifeGlitter has been in existence – in quite it's own subtle forms – for a while now. (Most notably, in my Etsy shop, where one can find printable planner pages, stickers and labels, and wall art by me.)
There are tons of things I've wanted to do over the years, but this one is one that has kind of stuck with me for quite some time. Sitting there, occupying a cubicle in my mind, overflowing with papers and boxes and pretty, glittery things.
Let me go back a little…
My beautiful, amazing, muse of a daughter turned 5 a few months ago. In that time, I've focused on getting our finances to a point where I could say that we were ‘okay'. To the point where I didn't have to worry about where meals would come from, or if I could keep the power on that month without getting help from family or wherever.
I reached that goal in 2017. I have been working my rear end off, but now I want more.
Not necessarily more money – though of course, that would be perfectly fine with me – but more time to work on things that light me up. ME. I want to make my own thing happen… finally.
Don't get me wrong – I LOVE my current ‘day job' for many reasons. My coworkers, my income, the work I'm getting to do – it's all this pleasant combination of things that were I a creature of contentment, I could just totally live with. But… this crazy chick inside isn't satisfied with contentment. Never have been.
So with the impending close of 2017 – I've decided that 2018 is the year I finally put my 20 years of online experience to the test. I'll combine it with my art and creativity, my love for journaling and being crafty, my graphic design experience, you name it. And I'm gonna make it work, folks. I've set goals for the year – I'm in process of breaking them down quarterly and monthly for 2018, and I absolutely CANNOT WAIT to come back here on December 31st, 2018, and share with you that I did it!
Along the way? I'm gonna share with you WHAT I'm doing. I'm going to bring you so many beautiful ways to add more sparkle to your life, organize your home and business, have fun, focus on what's important to you NOW (and not before or after now), how to find/build/grow your own dreams, and discover all the ways to really understand what #lifeGlitter is all about. (HINT: It's NOT about trendy, overpriced crap. HINT #2: It's NOT about Mod Podge-ing everything in sight, despite the fact that I may go through phases where MP is my bestie.)
So, here's my first official post of 2017 – my recap and focus for 2018. Thank you for checking it out, and stay tuned for much, much more!
