Changes Coming In 2022
Wow, here we are again y'all. The beginning of yet another month, and the final month in 2021. If you've been reading these blog posts and staying up to date, then you know I have kind of been going through it this year. A lot of growth and personal development yes, but also a lot of depression and overall uncertainty with what I want to do and where I want to go in life.
Truthfully, i've been pretty burnt out. The healing journey has been one that feels like a full time job, being so self aware and having to really have a handle on my thoughts, feelings, and body at all times in the attempts to break patterns and forge a better path for my and my descendants future is a lot to manage along with a business.
In 2022 I would like to really slow down. Focus on my health, mental and physical, and learn how to have fun and play again. I jokingly tell my therapist that I think I am going to take the first chunk of 2022 and just give myself the childhood I never got to have. Take some of the pressure to create and then sell those creations off of my shoulders for a while.
So that's exactly what I'm going to do. I am going to go quarter by quarter and see how I feel and what is going on in the world and just take a nice and long break from the pressure of being a young human finding themselves, and a business person at the same time. For now I am planning to take January, February, and March off from really pursuing this business full time, as well as a social media detox.
I am at this place in my life right now where I have to be very aware of how things effect my body and my nervous system. At the moment I can't engage with instagram and Tiktok without feeling bad about myself. There's this energy of constantly needing to create something new and fresh for people to engage with, but at the same time battling the algorithm to even show my posts to 10% of my followers. It's a little sad at this point, and I no longer with to engage with this part of the matrix. So im not going to.
I will be working a real job again. Not sure what kind of job, if anyone reading this wants to hire me for 25 hours a week at $20/hr send me an email. I have many skills let's work something out.
In seriousness though, this break feels essential. Like a way to rest yes, but also to celebrate the last two years of hard hard work i've put into myself. To honor how far i've come in my personal growth journey since moving out of my family home. I am very proud of how far i've come and really want to give it the space it needs to be honored.
What does this mean for you? Well, I still plan on releasing a monthly news letter with updates about what we have been working on in our break. I am going to continue making art, and will be diving into ceramics much more deeply. I am planning on showing this process through one well curated email newsletter every month. You can expect the best quality content I can provide.
To be honest, the email newsletter is something I have been wanting to really make better for a long time. I prioritized instagram and tiktok, thinking that these short form medias were more important, and maybe they are, but they aren't as fun that's for sure. I want to show up for yall with the best energy and intention that I can, and for now, this is what I can give you.
If you're interested in any custom work during my hiatus, please feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org. I will have time and space for customs, but wont be releasing any new collections.
I hope this made sense, I am still working out what I want this period of time to be. I know that I can never plan this out fully. But all I know is that a break is necessary, and I still want to show up for yall in the newsletter.
I hope y'all have a lovely holiday season. I hope you get to spend time with people you actually want to spend time with, and i hope you dont feel obligated to buy something for someone just because this hyper consumeristic society wants you to. I love that you're here just reading this, whether you've bought something or not.
Peace and blessings to you all XOXO
