Sometimes we all need a break from what we've been focusing on. I have some personal matters to attend to (nothing dramatic, just life stuff that needs attention).
I may blog a bit in the meantime, but I plan to take a break, enjoy the summer more (how is it almost August?!), and focus on some other things I find really important in life. Makeup is a passion, but it's only one of many I have. I was beginning to feel a little one-dimensional and too focused on the external. All of us have so much to ourselves, beyond our looks or job title or our personal titles (wife, daughter, sister, mother). I encourage everyone to take a little time once in a while to explore that a bit. It doesn't take a week-long retreat or deep meditation to figure it out: Sometimes it's just stepping back a bit.
In the meantime, I'll be working on some projects for when I'm back: Makeovers, a makeup seminar to cover, and more. I just want to take some time away from the computer (after work, that is).
Enjoy the rest of your summer! Take time to savor the simple stuff. At the end of the day, it's what makes our lives the most valuable. Thanks to so many for your support. I'm relatively new at this, so it truly has meant a lot to me.
