I don’t know what it is – the moons and stars aligning, something in the air, or what! – but it’s been a week of epiphanies! Something that completely alters the way you look at your life in one, simple moment. This week alone, I ditched a bad habit cold turkey because I stopped caring, just like that. The other one wasn’t as easy as I came to a hard realization of what I wanted from Beauty and the Pitch.
In times of hardships, I always ask myself: WWSGD (Yes, Selena Gomez). Look she gave up acting for music without skipping a heartbeat and things turned out ok. And before we go any further I am not saying goodbye. I COULD NEVER. I have way too many opinions to peace out and say adios amigo. But I am saying, “Hey, see ya around?” I thought this day was far, far away. I absolutely love being a beauty-fashion blogger. I love that people actually take time to read my thoughts and posts that I spend hours on. That’s not going to change. Except maybe the hours part…. I realized that I need to, and want to, spend more time on my book – a writing in process for like years and years and years. And I can’t do it all which is ok, just have to reprioritize a little bit.
So I’m shifting priorities which entails maybe less-frequent of posts or maybe teasers of the book or maybe videos or photos… I don’t know just yet. But, it’s the new reality and I didn’t want to go MIA without explaining either. I can’t really say what will happen except that this is one of the harder decisions of my life, especially since I’ve invested so much time in the last three years getting BATP to where it is. I’ve learned so much along the way – mostly web coding junk, design, photography and time management – and hope to learn more in this new phase. I can already say I’ve had my first lesson from this new transition (aka these last couple days), in that what someone is willing to sacrifice for what they care about is how you see what someone loves (holy, tongue twister!)
This is absolutely the right direction for right now. And my lovely BATPers, I hope you will continue to follow the new journey. Know at the end of this it’s going to be one hella of long post, with the same tone of voice you love, just in the shape of a published, hard-cover book, possibly couple hundred pages or-so with characters and what not. I hope that’s worth it.
