The Mission Begins
We have officially arrived at the Bright Colors Happy Things revival day! What What!!
What does all of that mess up there mean? Well, it means that Bright Colors Happy Things - that's me, in case you were wondering - is officially relaunching with awesome new content, once a week, at 7am on Monday's. Look for new blog posts and some Youtube videos and more! Also, my newsletter is going to be releasing at 7am on Friday's.

What Is Coming Next?
If you haven't already noticed, my website and - hopefully - all of my social media has already been branded to my new name. I know it's not a super exciting launch or even relaunch, but I figured that you would love me all the same.
Bright Colors Happy Things is now officially KayleeWrites.com. Any blog posts, social media posts, or newsletters will all be under the Kaylee Writes brand. I am really excited for this new change! It's allowing me to create a brand which reflects more of my personality and is actually streamlined.
What Type of Content Will You Be Seeing?
While I have worked my hardest to make sure that my content stays under the same few topics, I've decided to throw it out the window. I've never been the type of person who is an expert at something. I'm good at a lot of things, but I'm not one to specialize. Therefore, I will be having a few different topics floating around here.
This is going to be my online space. I am going to house my passion for writing, my obsession with event planning, and my interest in online businesses here for awhile. I am going to do my best to make sure that they relate to each other, but there will be times when there is no possible way for me to make them fit. Rather than forcing them or even stretching it super thin, I am going to let it be what it is.
Why Do You Even Care?
There are many reasons for you not to care. I'm sure you've all heard my endless promises. I have a bad habit of saying I'm going to do something and then not following through. Believe me, it's not because I haven't tried. I am horrible at being consistent though! I really haven't found out why or how to stop it. In my family, there is this unstoppable urge to 'ping' on different topics and directions. It really is a problem.
I've worked on it. In doing so, I really worked on my "why" of creating a business. I knew back in eighth grade that I wanted to have my business. I still didn't know what I wanted to do then, but I knew I wanted a business. I never stopped and asked myself why that was. I never took the time to really dive into what my reasons for having a business were. I bet you know where I'm going with this.
I took the time to really figure out why I wanted to own and run a business. I ended up finding out why and it's made me even more passionate and focused on running my own business than I was before. I am going to get to my reasoning for owning a business in a minute, but I really want to hone in on this new revelation for me. It may seem obvious to some people and to other's, may not seem like an important fact at all, but I need to say this:
Figure out why you want to own and run a business and then watch it take off faster than you ever could have imagined.
Since I've figured out why I wanted to run my own business, I have been coming up with ideas after ideas. I finally have a direction to go in. Now, I'm not talking about the usual "I want my own business to be my own boss" reasons. While these are part of a majority of why people want to go off on their own, it's not nearly strong enough to sustain you through the rough times.
As Remus Lupin says in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, "That's not strong enough, not nearly good enough." (By the way, don't quote me on that line. While I know my Harry Potter very well and will continuously make references, I'm not sure if that's the exact line and to be honest, my books are still packed, since we just finished our big move.)
Are We done yet?
I have realized that I've been rambling on quite a bit during this post and need to wrap it up. That being said, I did promise to let you in on what my why was for owning and running my own business. I will be publishing a post describing my method and process for figuring this whole thing out and will be sharing some awesome resources. In the meantime, here's my mission statement or my "why" behind my business:
To be transparent, relatable, and consistent, in an effort to inspire, educate, and encourage others; to create a space that encourages compassion, love, and a high value of kindness.
