You may have noticed I’ve been quiet here at Beach Body Bliss, and there are several reasons, the obvious one is that Summer has proven to be very busy… but as is often the case, there is a bit more to the story.
In the past I’ve written about how I never intended on my website to be a blog, yet here it is. A blog! And I’ve mentioned how the one thing that has been the same in regards to failed blogging is feeling the obligation to blog, even when I don’t really want to. All my life I have been one of those people who hates being told what to do, or feeling like I have to do something. And unfortunately, if you want to have a successful blog, you kinda sorta’ have to blog, a LOT.
Over the last 6 months I’ve focused on and sought out ways to live a happy, healthy and balanced life. And I feel like I’ve succeeded with all of that, but in all honesty I don’t feel like Beach Body Bliss really encapsulates what that means for me. When I started this blog and initially created the website, I had one goal in mind: Reach the point where I felt I was “beach body ready,” which explains the name. That was about a year and a half ago! Let me tell you, my heart and soul has done a complete 360 and nothing about my fitness journey has anything to do with looking a certain way in a bikini. I realized that some time ago.
… But what was I to do? Ditch my whole blog/website because of a domain name? I really did put in a lot of time and effort into all of it. Despite my concerns, I kept things going but suddenly I feel compelled to take the plunge and make a change.
What does that mean? I’m not entirely sure, I’m pretty sure it just means a domain name change… one that fits my lifestyle a little bit better. Yes my focus will always be fitness related, but living a happy, healthy and balanced life includes many different things. Exploring, hiking, traveling, clean eating, splurge meals, nights out on the town, and so many other ways that life can be enjoyable… and shared with others.
I don’t want to limit myself to being beach body ready!
