I can’t believe my blog is a year old! One of my goals when I decided to start my blog was to keep it up for at least a year. There’s not much I stay committed to. Watching tv shows, or a previous blog, pursuing a career in photography, or even a fitness journey. The list goes on and on. What usually happens is I put too much pressure on myself or I get wrapped up in my head believing that I’m going to fail. So obviously that hinders my ability to move forward. But this isn’t new. I sabotage myself in almost everything I’m interested in pursuing. But you already read about that, so there’s no need to bring it up again. I wanted to take a moment and acknowledge the fact I made it a year. To me, that’s a huge accomplishment. Yeah there were times were I was posting every week and then I slowed down, but I’m still making the effort. Surprisingly, I haven’t run out of things to talk about. That was a concern since I tend to be more of a private person, but this has helped with opening up to others.
And then there’s the question of “is anyone reading this?” That was something I would ask myself everyday, but I’ve gotten so comfortable with writing (typing) that it doesn’t even matter. My two year old said “does it matter?” today (April 19, 2019). She said “ Damn it” which in turn I asked her where she learned that. And she replied “Does it matter?” It was so clear and she was so confident with her response. It really doesn’t matter, since it doesn’t change the fact that she used that word. But you see, it doesn’t matter if anyone reads my blog the important part is that I’m confident in myself to put up the content regardless if it’s entertaining or not. Confidence. I’ve learned that if you’re confident people are more willing to accept you for being you.
I still don’t know if I’m going about this blog the right way but I’m enjoying it. It keeps me on my toes, and it makes me feel important. Even if feeling important is for myself. So much has happened in a year and I’m glad that 5 years or even 10 years from now I can look back and read about where I was in life. How I felt, how I overcame the obstacles or even re-live the happy moments. I can’t wait to see where I take this blog. I still have a lot of learning to do, lots of things I want to improve on where my blog is concerned. There’s lots of milestones coming this year, so I’ll have plenty to write about. If you’ve been with me since the beginning, I thank you. For those who just started following me, welcome. And to all of you, stay tuned. My life is about to get more complicated.
HAPPY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!
