SOC: Embracing Changes and Moving On

newhead2011 SOC: Embracing Changes and Moving On


Last year I designed this header for the blog.  I added the mantra ” Living life to the fullest. Parenting and photographing”. This year I’ve redesigned the header yet again and changed the theme used. I have kept some of the elements but discarded those which I felt not that relevant. There are many facades to living life to the fullest and to only focus on parenting and photography didn’t give a clear picture of my passions which also included cooking and baking among others.

Looking back at the evolution of headers on the blog  it wasn’t too long ago when my header only showed this.

I feel that the headers show how I have have evolved as a person. I’m more tech savvy now and more clear about what I would like from my blog and life. As my status changed from a parent of one child to a parent of three children my focus and priorities have evolved over the years.

I’m now setting more long term goals for myself and the kids with short term markers along the way.  I’ve learned to let go of things and people who are not beneficial to myself and family and embrace the new people who come into our life.

GOD has been kind in helping me evolve as a person and my trust is fully in him.

How have you evolved as a person?

  1. I like the new header and credit your techie abilities. I agree about letting go of things and peeps not beneficial to you and your family. And trusting in HIM!!!

  2. I just turned 30, an my view in life now changed. There are things that I continually rant and complaint during my twenties but looking back I realized that God has other plans for me.

    Now, I am more appreciative with simple little things and just go with the flow on what God want me to do with my life and my purpose to others

  5. I have recently decided to change my blog header too just a couple of weeks ago, after a year of so in blogging. I feel the need to change it, just like you I have evolved (although I am still not as tech-savvy as you :) ) You have nice blog headers.

  6. I also changed my header two times this week and so my blog’s template design and theme. I just had a problem with adding page that I cannot retract and my saved html won’t work. SO I decided to do a make over as well, you can find it here:

    The two banners are nice and it is so expressive. Hope you can visit mine too.

  7. So true. Yung change sa banner, it really reflects who we are at the moment. Mine is very simple, coz I want a less cluttered life.

  8. I love the look of your website! Every time I seen blogs or websites I like, I get an urge to change my blog theme or header. But since I’m not really good at it, it’s hard work for me. I don’t have the energy to do it right now.

    1. @Nica,
      It’s not too difficult to DIY a header..just need to be certain of what elements you would like to have for one. Can walk you through if needed.

    1. @Samantha,
      I used photobie to create it as can’t afford to purchase photoshop at the moment.

  9. i like all the headers. I don’t know how to create or make one but I hope I will learn in the future..:) As a person, I think I have evolve to become a better one:)

  10. Evolution is a generative process so everyone goes through that. I, myself, is happy that I was able to make it here… to wherever I am right now. There are many challenges in life and we have to continuously deal with them.

  11. Change sometimes involves doubt, anxiety, excitement and drive . These are just few as one ventures to the unknown. Mindset plays a big role on what to expect . If you are exited, eager and confident then the experience turned to be a positive one. On the contrary, if one’s expectations already focused on what would happen, then the adventure already had failed.

    We have the ability to make every adventure to be a positive one.

  12. You have great designs for headers! Artistic! Mine’s a bit old too and now I’m thinking of changing it too. I wish I could design as good as you :)
    All the best!

  13. Your blog headers are cute. And, you know, whatever makes you happy with your blog and everything in your life, go for it. Keep the positive harmony!

  14. Change is inevitable; some change for the better, sadly, some for the worse. Luckily for you, it’s for the better. And you’re right, changes should be embraced. :)

    Btw, I’m visiting late for BC Bloggers. I hope you could drop by my page some time. :)
