Does September feel like a fresh start to you? Although January typically marks new beginnings in most people’s minds, I tend to have these types of feelings in September. I think it has to do with all the years I spent at school, university, and then being a teacher. Later on, I even started my interior design and decorating business on the first day of September in 2008, followed by this blog in the same month three years later.
At the beginning of September, I always like to step back and assess what’s working in my life and what I’d like to change. Some of these are more personal tweaks, like cutting back sugar in my diet, exercising more regularly or journaling a little more. Other thoughts are changes I’d like to make in my physical surroundings, such as finally creating a welcoming entryway or cozying up the family room. Lastly, I think about what direction I want my business and blog to go in, including what services I want to pare back or add, the new causes I want to support, the types of clients I truly want to work with, as well as the conferences or design shows I definitely want to attend within the year.
So what does this all mean? Over the next few months you will notice some changes at Satori Design for Living. The overall focus will continue to be “Making Your Home Feel Right,” but you can expect a few new series created as a result of listening to your feedback and what you’ve been excited about, as well as a bit of a new look and feel to the blog. I will also be re-vamping my services to reflect what you’ve been asking for and what my passions in design, decorating and organizing truly are.
Now is the perfect time to jump in and let me know if there’s anything new you’d like to see at Satori!
Is September a time for making changes in your life or is there another time of year that seems to call out to you? I’d love to hear all about it!
