It's 2016. And it's an exciting year because I'll be turning 40. F-O-R-T-Y people. 4-0!!! OK I think you get the point. But it's kind of a big deal right? I mean it's a decade away from 50 which is half a century. Super depressing when you think about it and you're probably wondering why I'm even talking about it.
Well about 3 months ago I received a career changing opportunity that I would have been crazy to turn down. All of those years of hard work had finally paid off. Unfortunately this new opportunity had taken me away from blogging and I was left with a touch decision. Keep blogging or move forward with my career that I have been building for the last 20 years.
It got me thinking about my life and how far I've come thus far so what I decided to do was to give it go doing both. I haven't quite figured out how I'm going to balance both a demanding and challenging new position while still maintaining engaging and interesting blog content; however I'm determined to find a way.
I started a blogging because I felt I had something important to say. Surprisingly it wasn't necessarily about beauty even though that's the direction it took. But I made a go at it anyway and 6 months in I hit a major roadblock. I realized that I just couldn't keep up so I would often find myself struggling for content.
See as much as I love beauty and as much as I like trying new products I don't stray too far outside the confines of what works for me. I hate to admit this but I find it quite challenging reviewing products. Sometimes I just like a product. Period. It just works for me and I can't explain why.
That's why after much thought I'm embracing my initial domain name and relaunching my blog as Tracy's Way. Tracy's Way will still include beauty because let's face it I love a good lipstick but it's going to be more about me and my personal thoughts and ideas.
I've always done things my own way on my own terms and my approach to my blog won't be any different. So that's the direction I've decided to go. Because when you put it all out there into the universe and say out loud it actually becomes real.
Until next time -
