Everything Must Change…

“Everything Must Change” by George Benson

‘Everything must change
Nothing stays the same
Everyone must change
No one stays the same.The young become the old
And mysteries do unfold
Cause that’s the way of time
Nothing and no one goes unchanged…’

 

I titled this post Everything Must Change, because I feel like that’s what is happening in my life right now.  It feels as if everything I am or doing is being tested by the winds of change. There’s a shift in my life and I am going to do all that I can to honor it, but boyyyyyy is it going to be tough!

A few days ago, I received one of the shocks of my life when I got the phone call from my physician letting me know that I had been diagnosed with diabetes. At first, I was shocked, then I was sad, then I was confused, then I was…*sigh*…just was. I didn’t quite understand how I had gotten to this place, when just last month, I was proudly telling my co-workers that my physician calls me ‘the healthiest, fluffiest patient she had seen’! Of course, I knew in my conscious mind that by not changing my diet and activity level, I stood a great risk of developing the disease, but in my subconscious mind, I was young and didn’t have anything to worry about. Clearly, I was wrong!

In the midst of the diabetic storm, I began to survey my past blog posts on here and looking at all of the ideas and thoughts that I had shared. Some made me cringe, most made me laugh, but all made me proud.  Not realizing it at the time, my blog was the springboard I needed to find the gumption to move forward in other things in my life.  Since starting my blog, I have started a successful business with my best friend and found the courage and strength to marry the love of my life, discrediting and disregarding the naysayers and negativity that came with that.  In essence, my blog made me a badass!! *insert big grin* However, this space I am currently residing in the ‘Blogsphere’ is not where I was when I began this unexplored journey.  Because of this, I am thinking long and hard about the future of The Beau’T’Full Way, as we all know it.  Now, don’t get it twisted, I still love style and fashion – that will ALWAYS BE – but, now that I have spent some time in business, I feel the winds of change pulling me in a different direction. I’m not sure how I am going to do it, as far as it will be a new look, feature or format altogether, but I will have a plan in the coming weeks and of course, I will fill you guys in!

And then, in the midst of the diabetic AND blogging format storm, my love and I began the talk of relocation again. We currently live in North Carolina and although NC is home and we don’t want to leave the state, we are strongly considering moving to a different city within.  In this will come opportunity and change {there goes that word again!} and that is what is welcomed for us right now. Nothing has been solidified as of yet, but the conversation is happening – a lot – so we shall see.

With all of this unexpected fun happening in my life right now, I know that some decisions and changes HAVE to be made! The way I live, eat, and blog are all being tested in ways like never before.  To say that my mind is all over the place and I am a creative mess is an understatement, but I know that once I place my faith and fears in the hand of the Father, He will take good care of me and lead me to where I need to be.  The only thing I ask of you is for your prayers and patience as I embark on this new journey in blogging and life.  I am excited to see where all of this goes… If nothing else, I will yield some great stories and content from these situations! Lucky y’all! 🙂

Am I nervous? Of course. Am I scared? A little.  Am I ready? HECKZ YEAH! #bringiton

Ciao for now,
