With All Things in Life, There is a Season

With all things in life, there is a season.

When I was about 7 years old, I took on conquering piano, but quickly changed my mind when the instructor tried to get me to move my hand position around the keys. (To be perfectly honest, music was never my forte, I’ll leave that gift to my brother, Chris.)

Then there’s a season for more serious things in life, such as break ups, graduating college, moving down south when not knowing a soul, and that little thing known as picking a career path to stick with.

I’m a pretty impulsive person. When I set my mind to something, it’s happening. I decided on a whim to pursue grad school for education a little over a year ago, put in countless hours and dollars into pre req courses, exams, and traveling for interviews.. Only to be accepted into this amazing program and decide a week later that maybe that just isn’t the right career move for myself right then. It took me 2 hours upon having that thought that I declined the acceptance of my masters program. (Told you: impulsive to a tee.)

This isn’t something that I consider a bad, however. I just have always believed I know what I want and I gun for it. If it ends up not being what I pictured as “right” for myself, I move on. I’m not one for list making, speaking to multiple people for opinions, staying up late with my thoughts of “what if..“. Simply because, for each thing in life, there is a season.

I’ve been undergoing a lot of personal changes lately, one being this blog. I used to dedicate so much time, passion, and my overall self to keeping up with new recipes and ideas. Then suddenly, that all seemed to change over night. But why? Was my season of life over for blogging?

I love my blog, my readers, and everything I’ve learned and people I have met along this journey. How could something I love so much just come to an end? Well, great news (for me, at least!) my season for blogging has not come to an end. Rather, the focus of my blog has.

Cooking is a passion of mine, but I am so much more than that. Fashion, health, food, traveling, crafts, friends, family, design… I love it all. So why limit myself?

Yes, in life there is a season for everything. The season for my food blog has come to an end, but the season for a lifestyle blog has bloomed.

I look forward to this new season and adventure in my life, and hope you will join me with it.
