Tomorrow this blog will hit the 2 and a half year mark. It’s seems crazy that it was just over 2.5 years since I moved home from North America and so much has changed. This year has been a challenging one and I’m looking forward to 2016 and to focusing on different priorities than I would have ever thought when I started this blog, way back when.
Different to years past, I’ve decided that 2016 will be a year where I put my business on the back burner and focus on blogging for fun. SFAHH isn’t going anywhere, but I’ve started a new job working in retail in a role that I think will be both challenging and fun – and will hopefully help me get closer to my personal goals.
I’m looking forward to this new challenge and I can’t wait to see where it might lead. Whilst some might not see it as the awesome opportunity that I do, I know I’m doing it for the right reasons. Over the past few months I’ve found myself weary of the hustle required to build and sustain a business and I needed a change. So, I’ve decided that it’s time to make a shift that keeps the parts of SFAHH I love and allow the other parts to fall away.
What this means for SFAHH is that I’ll still be blogging, most likely 3 times a week as usual, but I will be taking my first blogging break from the 24th of December until mid-late January. I will still be working with the right brands, where the opportunity is a great fit, but I’m not planning any ebooks or ecourses for 2016.
In a week and a bit I’ll be 30 years old and I’m looking forward to focusing on enjoying life and creating time to really live. It’s all a big adventure, but I’m looking forward to seeing where it leads. I don’t have a word for the year yet, but learning to embrace the unknown.
Thank you for being part of this little community this year. I’ve enjoyed reading your comments here, on the facebook page and on instagram! I hope we can connect even more next year!
What’s something exciting you’ve got planned for 2016?
Happy half birthday, SFAHH! x
P.S. My Paddington Bear was a gift from Paddington Station, London. I’ve been wishing for one for 25 years and now I’m lucky enough to own one of my very own!
