You’ve probably noticed that I’ve been a little inconsistent with my blogging and videos these last two weeks…well, at least I hope you have. 😉 It’s not due to lack of motivation or ideas, I actually have TONS of ideas and SO much motivation! It’s due to lack of time…
Which may sound rather odd, since I’m out of work for the Summer, I should have time to spare right? Well, I don’t and I absolutely hate it. But you may remember THIS post, where I mentioned I was thinking about my future a lot. Well, I’ve made some changes…good changes!
First, I want to mention that our
diet lifestyle change, is going well. We aren’t perfect so we do have our cheat days, but for the most part we stick to it during the week and on weekends we don’t deprive ourselves but we also don’t over-do it either, we limit ourselves. It may not be the best way to do things, but it’s working for us. We are trying our best to get healthy!
Secondly, one of the biggest changes I’ve made that has affected my blog is that I decided to go back to school to become a Real Estate Agent! Whaaaat!?! Total opposite from what I currently do (I’m a nurse) but it’s something that I have always wanted to do and after much prayer, we decided the time was now. So a LOT of my spare time is going toward school, so unfortunately I have less time for my
hobby passion, right now.
So with that said, there will no longer be a new blog post Monday thru Friday. It’s just very difficult to post every single day and keep up with school, commenting, emails, housework, etc. I have decided to only post 3 times a week now — 2 new blog posts and 1 new video a week. I also think that with posting less content a week, I will be able to post BETTER quality content. I love to blog and some of my posts take hours, sometimes days to put together! (Seriously, I’m not exaggerating! THIS post took a week, and THIS post took a couple of days, and THIS post took a few hours!) I don’t like posting bad quality pictures, I hate when I don’t provide useful links, — I like to give you guys my best work. So I will be taking one day a week to work on JUST blog work…less posts, means more time to better my work.
For now, I don’t plan on leaving my current job…I love it. But I also don’t have all of the details set in stone yet, once I start practicing and get my feet on the ground and established in a company, perhaps then I’ll decided to leave the medical field and pursue real estate and blogging full time. But we’ll see what happens when the day comes.
The last thing I wanted to do was take a long hiatus and just quit blogging. I love this so much and eventually would love to make this my full-time job — okay, so maybe I daydream a bit too much. 🙂
I hope that makes sense to you all! I had a full week of content to get up this week, but school has been crazy, we went of out town for Father’s Day weekend, my grandmother stayed a couple of days with us, and on top of all that, I fell the other day and injured my knee and ankle pretty bad, nothing serious thankfully — which is so annoying because I haven’t been able to work out this week.
My new schedule will be Monday, Wednesday and Friday’s. I don’t think I will be back tomorrow with a new post, but I’ll try to get one last Friday Favorites post up — I won’t be doing that many Friday Favorites since I want to change things up and keep things fresh, new and exciting!
If you’ve made it until the end, THANK YOU and if you are still hanging around, although I’ve been very sporadic, a BIGGER THANK YOU! I promise next week and the weeks after that, I will be more consistent and you can expect something new on Beauty With Lily, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I wish I could give you all a huge hug and personally thank you — you have all been so supportive and loving, I truly appreciate it.
That’s it for now friends, I ask that you please say a little prayer for me — so that I don’t go insane and so that I ACE real estate school!
