Sitting down to write this post, I feel almost nervous. I started Rachel In Flight almost 4 years ago and since then have created over 400 posts. I should be more than comfortable with writing in this little text box, but this post is about change and who doesn’t get a little rattled when change is coming?
The past few years, this blog has become a home for me. A place that I have found solace in and that I have been able to freely express my creativity in. If you told me four years ago that having this blog would impact me as a person, I would have smiled to your face and rolled my eyes right outside of my head when you turned around. Turns out I would be the crazy one and you would be the one giving the stink eye. With each post that I write, each photo that I take and each moment of my life that I expose, I can feel myself growing. I have evolved so much just by having this little space on the web and for that I am grateful. I am also not done.
Originally I chose the name Rachel In Flight for the blog because I love to travel and I thought that this would be a great place to document my wanderlust around the World. ‘In Flight’ was a literal way to express me roaming the most beautiful places on Earth. Since then I have traveled a little but, let’s face it, I am no globetrotter..at least not yet. The words ‘In Flight’ have really transformed over the past few years and when I look back at all of the work I have done, I realized that those two little words are really about a journey; one that I want you to join me on.
This revamp is going to transform the blog into a place where all of us – together – can work towards the best versions of ourselves. It will remain a lifestyle blog, but the focus of the content you will receive will always be encouraging personal growth and development. We will highlight all of the fun topics you have seen before: health & wellness, career, finance, and even beauty. You will see interviews with other people working hard at life and there will even be some contributors joining the cause.
If you have not picked up on it already, please know that I am not the person who has achieved everything and is going to tell you exactly how to do it too. I am not sitting on top of my goals and looking down at all the hard work that got me here. Hell, I am still standing on the ground looking for my fucking ladder to grab onto! I don’t have all the answers, I am far from where I want to be in life, I curse (here’s your warning), I don’t have my dream job, I’m not super wealthy, and I screw up sometimes. But while looking around for my ladder I see a bunch of people looking for theirs too so let’s find these fucking stairs and get climbing!Pin It
