Fear. Confusion. Negativity. Doubt.
These thoughts pop into my brain on a daily basis. That’s why I’ve been remiss posting lately. It feels like I have so much going on while at the same time having nothing going on. The changes I’m referring to in the blog post are changes in my life and in this blog.
If you’ve noticed, we haven’t updated in ages. And it’s not because we don’t have fun things going on. I guess we haven’t been as into it as usual. I feel like the problem is mainly the lack of focus here. There are so many fashion/lifestyle/pretty blogs that ours might get lost in the shuffle. That is why I’ve decided that this lifestyle one will have a new theme.
It hit me the other day that the blog name was an inspired choice by my sister. Above the Plum Tree. It’s like I’m trying to rise above, to get ‘above’ in a way. So to me, this blog has taken on new meaning. Now it’s going to be more about finding your way in life. I am 37 years old and an executive assistant.
I’m good at what I do. It’s not the job I love. I know many of my friends who have the same problem. Why do we fall into these jobs and stay in them? Is it fear, as I’ve alluded to in the picture of me above? Is it laziness? Is it something we can’t even put into words?
That’s what I want this blog to become; an interactive experience for all of us to share our journey to living our life exactly the way we want! If we want it to be pretty and insta-worthy, then by all means, we are going to make it happen! It’s not going to be easy, but I’m going to take you on this journey with me, and yes, I’ll allow you to see me in the good and bad. No judgment here.
Are you ready?
