I’m twirling or pivoting a bit

I read a blog post over at Inspired by Charm that expressed what I have been feeling. Before that I couldn’t put my finger on it.  That feeling of being okay. That things were fine, but something felt off or needed.  He had a quote “I want you to stop confusing exhaustion with unfulfillment. You aren’t tired, you’re unfulfilled. Give yourself permission to pivot.”

 Permission to pivot.  A few other words for pivot are: turn, whirl, swing and twirl.  So maybe I want to twirl. To start looking at different directions as I “swing” around.  See what I have done and what I want to do. What possibilities are out there to explore. 

To know it is okay to pivot if you feel stuck or feel like a change. To explore another path – yes even if the path you are on is okay. I like to think life is a journey.  So as a journey I get to decide what paths I want to head down. To go off the main path and check something out. To not have all the answers now. All I have to do right now is take the first step or two.  Pivoting or twirling doesn’t mean I have to figure it all out now. I can adjust as I go. Stop and access. Maybe sit down at my local coffee shop and do my pro and con list.  All good.

So I’m going to start with my Instagram and change the profile (done!). I want to capture things I’m doing in the moment that bring me joy.  My messes, crafts, ideas and stuff.  I’m pivoting / twirling just a little  My blog has always been about me and my thoughts so not much of a change.  I want to explore this idea I’ve been mulling over.  I’ll leave it at that.  Thanks for always supporting.  I’m starting to twirl!!


You can always start now!

    Great job at what you’re doing friend. Visited your IG account, and looking forward to see how your twirling progress – enjoy it


  2. I love this! It’s so relatable. I feel like there’s pressure to have everything figured out by a certain age, and even if we do or did, what if we change our minds? What if we feel like we’re kind of standing still, like what’s next? Maybe we have to try something new to blossom into the people we’re supposed to become. We have to let ourselves explore to grow. Sort of why I made my blog, I’m mid- twirl! I’ve enjoyed seeing and reading about your journey so far on here and ig these past few weeks. I’m so glad our blogs crossed paths, I can’t wait to see where your twirling takes you 💜


    1. So glad it was relatable. and YEAH to be in mi-twirl. At this stage in my life it is all about less regrets. So trying new things. Failure means I have tried so it is a win/win. Don’t think of it as failure think of it as attempt number one – learning. Hope you are having a good summer
