Happy New Year!
We hope you all had a joyous holiday season filled to brim with precious time and heartfelt love and laughter with friends and family! Now, it’s officially 2022 … WOW! How did that happen??
Honestly, I really love this time of year, it’s when things feel fresh, new, and exciting. I see the beginning of a new year as a reminder to stay focused on my goals and the life I want to live. It is so easy for us all to get right back into the grind and lose sight of that. I encourage you to look at it differently this time. Maybe implement some new little habits and rituals to stay on track with those goals … you can start small and grow from there. I find that when I set my goals too high, it becomes daunting and oftentimes too difficult to attain. It takes baby steps... one step at a time to move the needle forward. This is my strategy in the new year—to stay engaged and take things slow and steady. That is a challenge in and of itself for me as I always tend to rush into things and go hard and fast, which typically stifles me and leads to eventual burnout. I encourage you to take the necessary steps each day to achieve your goals. This will lead you to success and contentment through living the life you want to live, and knowing it’s possible! Just that thought is a relief!
With all of that in mind, we can’t begin to explain how excited we are to share the new look with our official rebrand for 2022: City Lifestyle Scottsdale! This rebrand was undertaken with great purpose in order to tie in our robust digital platform CityLifestyle.com, which brings you even more amazing lifestyle content each month! You may also notice a few new segments, as well. This letter, for one! You will be hearing from both myself, as well as Michelle, our Editor-in-Chief, each month! Our “City Scene” changed in look, but will still continue to bring you photos displaying all of the amazing events and things going on in the community. Another is the “Business Monthly” section, which incorporates news from numerous local businesses and nonprofits in the community.
We hope you enjoy some of the new elements, as we always strive to improve and bring you monthly content that speaks to our community in a way that is enjoyable and uplifting!
