Oh how I’ve missed this space and my other little corner of the internet on what we call Instagram.
I wasn’t gone for too long but two weeks gave me some time to truly come into focus on my plans for the new year.
How cliche that this came at a time for “new year resolutions” but that’s just as good as time as any.
I want to apologize for a moment. The last few months have been some of tremendous growth for Modern Wanderer but deep down inside, it hasn’t felt right. When I rebranded from Me + My Little to Modern Wanderer I was so excited to be completely authentic and utterly raw… And sometimes I was. But other times I was just drifting from one project to the next, posting but not really connecting. And feeling unsatisfied with my work.
During my time offline I had a few long moments where I could truly implement thoughts and ideas I have encouraged you all to do yourself but only ever felt as though I had the time to half heartedly do myself.
As my mind brewed I thought about what I needed to do in this next year to truly be as happy as possible, in my life, this blog, and my part time job outside of the home. I spent DAYS evaluating each and every aspect of all three and thought about what needed to be nourished, and what needed some changes.
I thought about my influence and what I want to do with it. The way I want to use my voice, and the type of people I want to connect with.
Modern Wanderer has been amazing for me and I hope it has been for you. And honestly, not a whole lot is changing.
I sat down and thought about my mission statement if you will, and used the concept I talked about briefly a month or so ago. My direction for Modern Wanderer 2017 lies within my answers to that exercise, and you can head to my About page to read it in depth but here is what you can expect over here in this next year. I hope you’re excited about it, because I sure am.
- To advocate self love and empowerment for women.
- To share the wellness and self discovery that comes through travel.
- Sharing the message of non profit organizations close to my heart.
- Teach others to express themselves through simplicity
- To open the discussion on non conventional spirituality.
To top it all off, I have created a newsletter of sorts where I will be sharing exclusive and more in depth tips on all the wonderful subjects I share on this blog. You can sign up over to the right.
Here’s to 2017 y’all!
