I must fess up, I've been feeling very uninspired on the blog front lately. Could be a number of reasons. Sometimes there is a lack of new ideas, loss of motivation, knowing that this blog doesn't directly generate business etc.
I have been having this 'whisper' lately about my forever interest and curiosity about human nature. About how we live on purpose. Becoming our authentic selves. Learning life lessons and most of all growing. I have been on what I now know can be labeled as a spiritual quest for as long as I can remember. I'm not big on small talk and surface level to be honest. I love going deep. Most people in my life know this about me and I was telling one of my dearest friends that I am finally letting out the 'woo-woo' side of me. I have always been the friend that has been there for advice, trying to help as much as I can. This has actually been one of my biggest lessons (future blog post on this one) as I've had to learn to have relationships where I can still be that friend who can give advice but I don't forget about myself in the process.
So this bit of a ramble leads me to my blog. I have two main passions outside of my family life. Design and Spirituality. I probably used to call it Self Help but don't really like that word anymore. I want to combine these passions. When I wrote my Karla Dreyer Design business plan my mission was "to inspire people about their space." This keeps resonating with me and how I can incorporate this into my work? The blog. I am going to still post design/decor things but I also want this to be a place where I hope to inspire. Share books I've read. Articles I love. People that inspire me. Practices and life lessons. This is a vulnerable place to be so be gentle on me!
I will post every Thursday. It might just be a great quote, but my intention is to invite you on this personal journey with me to live your most amazing life...as 'woo-woo' as it may sound :-)
Since this is a long post already, I'll just leave it with the quote above. Everybody is always waiting for the right timing, me included. Guess what - it's never going to be the right time. If you have a burning desire, just take a step in that direction.
