I really can't believe it's June already but it is! How did it get to be summer so quickly?
When summertime hits, I always look at it as a time to rest, relax and renew..and to re-evaluate.
At the end of my days, I want to face Jesus and be able to answer him for a job well done. The fact is, I don't look at my work as a job and I know he didn't actually mean 'job' when he says it that way. But, really, what we all do is work, right? What a privilege I have of doing this thing I do, just as I hope you consider it a privilege what you do.
So as I re-evaluate, I've decided to give up some writing and social media things. Why? Because I need to streamline. I need to prepare to be available to my son as he goes through his senior year this next year. I need to be totally present for my family. I need to be fully prepared when I travel to speak at events. And honestly, writing is hard for me. It doesn't come naturally but I do it because I like connecting with you. And the social media stuff? Some of it I like but sometimes I find myself wasting time with it. Especially twitter. Gracious, I don't like that one.
So as I've been thinking and praying this through I'm considering doing away with my blog and twitter. I also just resigned as Fashion Editor for Susie Magazine because my focus is moving me in a direction of equipping women more than teens. I figure if I can get to the moms and help them to see themselves more beautiful and confident women in Christ, then they will pass that on to their daughters. And hey girls, I'm 50! I think I'll leave the teen events for the younger gals!
Anyway, back to issue at hand. Most of my activity seems to take place on the Fashion Meets Faith facebook page and even if you're not a member of facebook, you can look at the postings there. Just google Fashion Meets Faith facebook page and you'll find it.
So I'm taking the next several weeks to pray about this. I'll let you know what I finally decide but for now, it's a strong guess that those two things (blog and twitter) are going to go away. If you're a blog reader, I thank you so much for reading my blog but I promise I'll let you know where to find me!
For now, off to take my lab for a much needed daily walk, and then pack for my trip to Illinois tomorrow where I get the privilege to speak on Friday night to a conference full of beautiful women...maybe you'll be there!
Love you gals,
