I know, I know… Once again I have taken an unscheduled, unannounced hiatus from writing. That’s what happens when you’re living life.
On the one hand, some great things have happened in the meantime. Thanks to a dear friend of mine, I was able to begin working for an amazing skin care company as an aesthetician. Entering the luxury market if my field has been nothing short of a blessing. The work can be time-consuming, but it is also so much fun. For the first time in awhile, I feel completely at home in my career. My days of vacillating between social work and the beauty field are over, and I am now firmly stepping into progressing in my purpose as a beauty professional.
That being said, my break hasn’t been without its challenges. My mother is recovering from knee surgery and it has been all hands on deck to assist her in her new normal as she heals. Frustrations aside, she is in excellent spirits and we all know that this is a temporary bump in the road. I have no doubt that she will be fully back on her feet soon enough.
As for this blog: yes, it’s still up and running and yes I will be more diligent in its development. During my time away, I reassessed how I have been spreading myself a little too thin in terms of online presence. Until recently, I believed I had to compartmentalize aspects of my content and personality under multiple online identities. However, it only serves to dilute my overall impact while creating needless busywork. Plus, trademarking is pure hell. I’d much rather use my own name that doesn’t require miles of additional paperwork to own. Therefore, JasmynElliott.com will be my one and only hub for everything I want to share on whatever topic that has my attention at the moment. In other words: I’m back.
