New Beginnings

"Everything is temporary"

This past 6 months have been big, full of changes and newness all round. I do change well. I think that's because I learned to accept that change happens whether we want it to or not many years ago. So now I embrace it, and have grown to accept and sometimes even enjoy it. 

One of the most recent changes which hopefully you have already noticed, is my freshly redesigned and refocused blog! For a while now I have been increasingly unhappy with what my blog looked like and how it was being read, meaning that there was no real motivation for me to want to post anything. Something I started to realise was that my blog was slowly descending from a clear vision of things that I loved and wanted to write about, and getting lost in a "what others think I should post, what others will think about me, what is blog-worthy" path.

Within this re-launch, I wanted to change the whole idea of my blog, from the content to the colour scheme. I hope it's easier and cleaner to look through in this new format, and that people will still continue to enjoy reading what I have to say. I plan to let absolutely no more happy moments slip by unnoticed or unappreciated, I want to be able to look back at this blog and have this place to remember how I felt and what my journey was like.

After all it’s not really about what we did or ate yesterday, not about teaching anyone the right way to arrange flowers and coffee cups on side tables, not about what I bought last night, and not about the latest social media tips and tricks. It’s simply about life and our impressions, how it feels and looks every day, about the little moments and memories that make us happy, make us laugh, or sometimes scare us; as well as the big dreams and long-term goals that we’re trying to achieve. I'm not ready to stop and settle, and hopefully I won't ever be.

So this is an introduction to the revised At The Charlie Louise — an “Impressionist Lifestyle” Blog!
