Like most people my age or younger, I have been one to dabble in blogging over the years. It’s never stuck and it was more a hobby / something to satisfy my curiosity. Usually I’d burn out after a few weeks of trying to maintain a schedule, trying to find interesting things to write about for the two friends who were kind enough to read my horrible writing and I’d end up dropping it. I never really knew why I wanted to blog but I guess I just wanted to put thoughts into words and share a bit of me and my interests with the rest of the world.
Well, what’s new this time? I guess before I was writing about food (like everybody else) and travel (like everybody else). Don’t get me wrong. The people I follow and read I admire for their effort and dedication. Their blogs are beautiful, and I always found inspiration in it, but it just wasn’t what I wanted to write which was probably why I burnt out so quickly. I love food and travel, but I am no expert on food, and I am not someone who wants to compete with the travellers out there.
I realized that over the last few years the blogs, the reading material and the YouTube videos I was drawn to were focusing mainly on three things:
- Self love
- Getting your shit together
I have always been someone who struggles with productivity. I am overly organized (I have a touch of OCD according to my therapist), but have the most chaotic brain and a constant mess / clutter in my room. I so badly want to be organized, clean, and on track with all my work and projects, but sadly I am not. I have always wanted to be someone who is so on top of her life that she can meal prep, gym 6 times a week and still maintain a perfect social life, drink like a College Freshman, be a good daughter, and still treat my body like a temple and wake up at 6 am fresh as a daisy to meditate. Realstic, right?
Well, I’m giving it one more try. Whether the world sees it or not, this is me keeping track of my goals, my attempts at getting my life together and sharing my thoughts on getting shit done, and hopefully it helps someone else do it too.
