Back at the end of 2017 and beginning of 2018, I mentioned a couple times that some changes were coming to the website and blog. I wanted (still do) to update and add more quality resources and make sure that the content stayed high quality and relevant to the original intentions and keeping this a safe, anonymous, FREE resource.
There are new and different priorities taking over right now. Some of my explorations require a bigger time investment and a new space to write/share thoughts. Others are or will be big life changes that also require dedicated, long term focus.
Since I want to do all of that and maintain this website and blog, compromises and changes have to take place.
Untangled Connections is moving to a paid account by June 2018
The domain name and/or URL might change (I’m still trying to understand this), but the Web site Name and accessibility WILL NOT CHANGE
I will write an ADMIN Post announcing the changes 1-2 weeks before they take place
At some point, probably the next holiday or vacation, I’ll be collating all of the Resource posts and putting the links on the Resources page
The Search and Menu functions will change to become more user-friendly
This might require changes to the theme, but I will know more after making the upgrade
Posts about me, my experiences with resources, reviews, etc. will take place 1x a week – probably on Sundays
Posts about topics and ideas from the Internet or other bloggers will be shared as I find them – could be none one week or up to 4 another week
These posts may or may not have comments from me, but the links will be available in the body of the post
You might or might not also find links to videos, websites, and Podcasts instead of links to blogs, articles, and organizations
I’m implementing phase 1 of the career change plan with the goal of complete changes by 2020
I’ve finally saved up and bought the supplies to work on aromatherapy certification lessons (blending, case studies, research paper, etc.), so will be spending a lot of time on that.
The new blog mentioned above is part of these lessons. It will chronicle my explorations in class and with personal use to help maintain emotional, spiritual, and physical wellness
**REMINDER** I am not a practicing medical professional and probably won’t be until the agoraphobia becomes less intense, so anything on there will be informational only
My home still needs a lot of work – organizing and decorating – to make it feel safe and comfortable and easy to clean no matter my emotional state
Requires thoughtful purchasing of storage solutions, time to organize said solutions, and space to cope with any triggers all that brings up
Requires creating and implementing new house chore routines to address trigger issues like laundry, food shopping, cooking, and other tasks that require leaving the apartment
Requires creating a safe space in my apartment where I can meditate, do crafting, and go for self soothing comfort
So, yes this is a lot. Not everything will happen this year. I am going slow, turtle slow. And my social media usage is taking a big hit because of that. But there is progress in every aspect of these big changes.
And each small bit of progress is a success.
Whatever you’re doing, please go slow and make time to celebrate your progress too.
