LET GO & LIVE
I wholeheartedly believe EVERY thing happens for a reason but it’s up to us to find the meaning and purpose of each challenging situation. In those moments, we have to take time to enjoy the process instead of worrying about reaching the destination.
When I first started blogging last January, my drive to make everything perfect was comical. I wanted my posts lengthy, full of advice with glossy HQ pictures and exactly like the high-profile fashion bloggers I follow. Let’s be real, not every post I’ll write will be over 700 words. I don’t have a DSLR camera so frankly, my phone may not capture the sharpest images all the time. A couple of posts may not rack up 300 views in a week. But guess what? IT’S ABSOLUTELY OK 🙂 I can only be ME and that is good enough.
The immediacy to get things done is frustrating. Spend more time enjoying your journey than finishing first.
It’s totally fine to not have everything in order ALL the time. Getting off track is helpful because those unpredictable moments strengthen your core by discovering new abilities. Learning more about yourself makes you well-rounded and confident. I decided to take more interest in a having a peaceful blogging journey instead of stressing out over how many followers/likes I have or what popular posts to write.
Just do what you can today and finish the rest tomorrow.
I realized, I just don’t care anymore…well not as much as I did before. I noticed the things I care way less about, prosper tremendously. As far as my blog and social media, I’m not investing so much of me into it where it’s not fun anymore. I’ll never do that again.
I won’t let the numbers game rob my happiness with blogging. I care enough to post valuable, quality, entertaining and informative content but not so much my life circulates around it.
I see the big picture and it’s not be the top person at what I do, it’s being HAPPY with the work I do.
So many things to do in the world besides worry about work, numbers, blogging or anything that consumes your joy. From now on, I’m just gonna have fun whether it’s eating lunch by myself or going shopping with my sister, my main priority will be to enjoy the moment.
How have you’ve grown in the past year?
