To not worry about changing myself because guess what…I’m OK with who I am.
It’s OK that I’m not a morning person, the name of my blog is Living After Midnite after all.
It’s OK that I’m not into running, I’m actually pretty terrible at it and it’s boring as hell to me.
It’s OK that I don’t want to go into the city as much as I used to, I live a little further now and honestly I just hate getting on the train and getting home so late when I do. I used to have fear of missing out and want to go to EVERYTHING, but I just don’t anymore.
It’s OK to embrace my introverted side. While I definitely used to be more of an extrovert, I definitely think I’m more of an ambivert as a 30 something year old now. I was an ENTP in high school, but I’d be curious to take the Myer-Briggs test again now and see if anything has changed.
It’s OK that I want to change my style by the day. I have a job where I can wear pretty much whatever I want and some days I want to dress up and wear red lipstick and heels and the next I want to wear sneakers and leggings with my hair in a pony tail. I have a lot of sides to my personality so why should I only dress to compliment one.
It’s OK to say no to things, I think I’ve had this “resolution” every year since 2016 and every year I still feel guilty about saying no to things, but I’m getting better at it.
It’s OK to want to change and evolve, but it’s also OK to accept who you are. Scroll down as I dive a little deeper into my blog evolution and what to expect in 2020 and beyond here.
I’m hesitant to call this section “goals”, so I’m calling it “what’s in store” for 2020 and beyond! I’m working on updating my About Me page and my blog format in general, and honestly I don’t want to think of this as a “change” per se, it’s more of an evolution.
I started this blog TEN years ago, I was 22 and a VERY VERY different person than I am now. I didn’t know what I was doing and I didn’t know what I wanted to post about so I shared a lot. Over the years I honed in on more style and beauty content, but in all honesty over the past 2 years or so I’ve grown up a lot and my interests have shifted and what I’ve come to realize is that my audience has grown up with me.
I’ve also been studying my analytics, and you guys, the numbers don’t lie – the content that is performing the best is home inspiration, my personal home content, travel guides (including what to wear while I’m traveling), and Halloween & Holiday content.
SO even though I’ve slowly been shifting towards the “lifestyle” niche for a few years now, I think I’ve finally honed in on what my lifestyle looks like and put it into words…
I’ve finally curated this 2020 evolution of myself, my brand and my blog by accepting that I’m just going to be me, which brings us full circle back to my 2020 “resolution” from the beginning of this post. My new “About Me” page is almost done and I’m LOVING what I have so far. My current one just doesn’t explain properly what this blog is all about and I think you’re going to love what the new one explains.
But in 2020 and beyond expect more…
Expect more tales this 30 something New Yorker has to tell, because I’ve got lots of stories and lots of inspiration!
