Noticed some changes around here?
It started a few months ago, I just really wanted a fresh & lighter feel to my site– so I did a little bit of tweaking. I’m still definitely in the process; hunting through inspiration on Pinterest & starting to see patterns in what I want to do with CosmicOutlaw. I’ve narrowed down on a color scheme-clearly revolving around grey & purple (I tend to gravitate towards those 2 colors in all of my life)-but I’m going to be playing with some color here too (hello oranges, pinks & blues!). I’ve made quite a few behind the scenes tweaks as well.
I finally bit the bullet & published a Facebook page (about time, you say!) I would LOVE for you to come hang out with me there! Also notice my snazzy new Flower of Life icons on the left of the page. (I got them here, if you like them!)
I’m so excited to be working on my site! I feel such a renewed zest & vigor in all areas of my life lately, & CosmicOutlaw is definitely my main focus. It doesn’t stop there though!
In my own life, I haven’t had a cigarette in over 4 months! The effects have been profound, & not just physically. I’ve learned a lot about myself & the nature of willpower & have been so inspired I’m cooking up a whole series about my experiments in self discipline.
I recently started using a Vitamix & it’s fucking changed my life; smoothies everyday (so far strawberry/ mint has been the best!), carrot juice, asparagus soup, & that’s just the beginning. I’m ridiculously eager to try making my own nut butters & iced coffee drinks this summer.
I’ve been exercising (ALMOST) daily & it feels amazing. I’ve been cleaning. I’ve been writing daily. I pulled my bike out of storage (just in time for the scorching summer…) & feeling a vast improvement from how I’ve felt just a few months ago. If you remember in my New Years post I talked about choosing a power word & I’ve really been focusing mine (warrior). It’s filled me with intent & purpose & I’ve found that, even though I’ve definitely hit some turbulence this year, I haven’t fallen off track. High fives all around.
+ I’ve been working on some ultra exciting posts for you Outlaws– & have been experimenting with using an editorial calendar. I look forward to sharing with you on a more consistent schedule, so right now I’m just playing around with seeing what works.
+ I’ve also been working on the (sometimes tedious!) process of organizing my photos & making art with them. I’ve been exploring all sorts of photo editing apps & software– which is so much fun! I have some secret plans for my art as well… Something else to look forward to!
+ I’m reworking my to do list/ life goals/ warrior power plans. I’ve learned so much about myself, how I think/ work/ live, since I’ve last made any sort of long term goals– so I’m definitely eager to do a life audit. I know this is what I need to be doing because as soon as I made the decision to do so, Alex published this piece on what is required for happiness, & David posted this article on how to actually do everything on your to do list. Ta-da!
+I’m in the process of going back to school in the fall! I know right!?
