So, I redesigned my blog this week. I have had this blog for about five years now, and this is only the third design I’ve had.
The first was honestly, my favorite, which is why I kept it for so long. It had to do with my original purpose for the blog. My original vision was sort of a one-person magazine, where I would write articles about life, god, and art.
I ended up writing about all those things, but it was more personal essays than magazine articles. So about two years ago, I redesigned it to a theme that seemed more personal, and had that “slice of life” feel to it. But, now I have grown so sick of that design. I mean like…really sick of it. I hate it. I can’t even stand the sight of my own blog, kind of sick of it. It almost seemed like an emergency to change the design this week.
I’m not sure how I feel about this new design. It seems sleek, uncluttered and a bit plain. But, I feel like it is plain not as in uninspired. But, plain as in focused, and not bogged down, which is how I feel about my life right now.
I am starting 2019 focused, and uncluttered. My promise to myself this year is not to let myself be held down by my mind, my past, my patterns, my experiences. I am only in control of today. Everything else, is all in my head.
My past is not my present. My present, is not my future.
