At the beginning of December last year, I announced a change in content. It wasn't a major change that would completely be off topic to what I had grown my audience to know and love. It was simply an addition.
It was incredibly clear to me that my work and my content wasn't entirely authentic to who I really was. I was starting to feel disconnected, bored, out of touch and just stagnant with what I've created.
I didn't want this to be how I felt any more. I didn't want to hide a part of me. I wanted to be excited again. I wanted to feel connected to my work again. I wanted to wake up and be so excited to write again. I wanted it to all align with my true self.
In 2022, I am focusing heavily and entirely on alignment.
Within my businesses, my relationships, my family, my personal growth, my spirituality, my mental health, my health, my life.
I announced this by an Instagram post that was received incredibly well - I'll pop the post below - which I'm so thankful for and since then, I've made some changes.
~ I've added spirituality content
~ I've re-designed my templates and Instagram feeds (I know this seems minor, but I really believe this has made a big difference for me!)
~ I've engaged with you all more in my messages and comment sections
~ I've removed some of my coaching offerings that didn't entirely fill me up
~ I've started working on some new epic digital products for you all
These might look like small changes to you, heck, you may not even notice the difference, but I can notice. I am excited about my work again. I'm only working with people who TRULY want to uplevel in their lives. And I'm happy.
I hope you all are loving the new Mindful Soul Collective! Because I sure as hell am.
My original Instagram post:
"I have to apologise to you and to myself.
Having a platform like this is such a blessing. I love being able to inspire and share my experiences with so many people. I really, really love it.
But, I must admit, some days I'm nervous about sharing things. It's still scary showing the 'real' side of me. To share things that I know not everybody would 'agree' with.
I've never shared anything I didn't believe in (everything on this page is definitely me!) but I haven't been sharing everything that I do believe in either.
The truth is, I'm all about spirituality. You know, the 'woo-woo' stuff 🔮.
I didn't think keeping this part of my life away from Mindful Soul Collective would affect me much but it turns out, it has. It's resulted in me feeling out of touch. Uninspired. Stagnant. Bored. Tired. And most importantly, burnt-out and struggling with my own self-love and self-worth.
So, this is my public declaration that I will stop all of the nonsense and just be me. The full me. The self-development obsessed, passionate, loving, fun, spiritual me.
I'm sorry to you, but mostly to myself, for keeping this side of my life away from MSC.
This page (and now business) started because of my love for all things personal development. Which for me, includes mental health, well-being, spirituality, manifesting, self-love, purpose and everything in between.
My content won't be changing much, don't worry! It'll just include a few more spiritual pieces. I'm hoping you'll love the new stuff too, but it's okay if you don't."
