Happy Wednesday! I've been on a little social media break, recharging in the sunshine and generally taking stock. I've been finding my work very difficult recently, falling out of love with blogging and frustrated by my coaching business, so as we hit the half year point it was definitely time to rethink things. I've been doing this for 5 1/2 years and being online all the time is incredibly draining for me, but I have always loved it and felt so lucky to get to do some of the opportunities I've been given. But that joy was lost. I was feeling downtrodden, jaded and quite honestly a little bored. The joy had gone. So I'm going back to basics, writing more about what I love, changing the coaching slightly and throwing in something new and creative. It's absolutely the change I need. And that's where this photo comes in. It's part of a set I'm using for a new little project, taken by my 10 year old (I know, right!), which will all be revealed very soon. If you are feeling the same, it's well worth stepping back and taking some time out. It's sometimes all that you need.
