5 Reasons Why Change Scares the Heck Outta Me | Goodbye Saving Said Simply
Do you embrace the word change. Well, I don’t. In fact, it’s probably one of the scariest words in my existence. Even worse than spiders! But with change brings future, and today I’m sharing why change is going to be HUGE here at Saving Said Simply and how it’s going to affect YOU. Please please read 5 reasons why change scares the heck outta me and why you need to pay attention.
1. It’s new
New. While most folks love that word, I like used. Maybe digging into my frugal roots but faded washed jeans are so much better than new jeans. Gently used, that’s me.
2. It’s different
Not to be a Negative Nelly, but I have always been shy to change my ways. I’m a grump. I like my routine. I like what I know.
3. It’s uncomfortable
It feels like being the last person picked for the kickball team. That kind of uncomfortable. And I hate that feeling.
4. I can’t predict the outcomes
I’m a logical person. I love using math, formulas and predictable measures to reach expectations. But life changes are so hard to navigate. I’ve tried pros and cons lists,
5. That faith thing
No disrespect to God, but as a human, it’s so hard to trust that the change is not only good for us, but better. We clasp so easily on our own understanding and works…but letting go is a completely “naked” kind of feeling. And yes, I’m totally weird-ed out that I used the words God and naked in the same bullet point.
And now that I’m completely hyperventilating over here, this is the time when I tell you that I have big news. Like really big.
There will be no more Saving Said Simply.
I just screamed a little too. I know, scary stuff. But this is when I throw you the ray of light.
Saving Said Simply is rebranding. Saving Said Simply has held over 3 years of nostalgia, memories and the pivotal milestone of me starting my own business. It’s hard to let it go. But let’s face it, while I love the name, it no longer reflects who I am as a blogger or where I want to be.
So while there will be no more “Saving Said Simply,” there will be a new site, a new name, a new beginning. But the same stuff. I’m not changing the recipes, the crafts, the family stories, the travel, the movies or your beloved giveaways. It’s time to finally have a name and a site that reflects exactly who I am, what I do and where I am going.
But that’s not to say I’m not scared out of my mind. I absolutely am. But today, June 29, 2015 is the beginning of the site I have always dreamed of. Stay tuned for the BIG reveal. But FYI, you may start to see changes over the coming weeks as my designer and I begin the migration from the end of one era to the beginning of another. New social media url’s. New design. A new name for you and I to remember. I ask for patience as we work out the proverbial “bugs,” redirects and changes. I will definitely be here with any questions or frustrations you have navigating through these changes.
But I promise to NOT change in the sense of my content. Family-friendly. True to my voice. Containing all of the love and excitement that I had here at Saving Said Simply for over 3+ years.
And while I hate change, I love surprises. So stay tuned as I surprise you with my new site very very very soon.
