Personal Reflection

There Are So Many Things I Want To Do

Sometimes, I wish I could do everything, but that’s not possible. I only have 24 hours.

I used to be so stubborn about sticking to several daily habits.

Every now and then, some things have to give. I can’t do it all or do everything well. I’ve become more accepting of that fact nowadays.

I want to do many things and do them for a certain length of time or until I reach a specific goal. For example, I try to dance for one hour and read about 50 pages every day.

Nevertheless, I try not to let my current habits stop me from pursuing other opportunities.

I’m content with what I’ve done, yet I’ll continue to do more.

Life is a journey. My growth is ongoing, not a one-time event. So rather than beating myself up over a habit I didn’t do, I will appreciate all the things I did.

I journal before bed, and I’ve been tracking what I accomplish. That way, I can look back on a record of how I spend my time. Which is eye-opening to say the least.

I feel like human beings aren’t always the best at time management for a number of reasons. Tracking what I do and how long it takes me to complete a task has paid dividends. I now have a better understanding of when I should start an activity and when I can finish it.

Of course, I’m not perfect. Some days are good, others are bad. But knowing how I work allows me to plan ahead and account for worst-case scenarios.

What Should I Do With This Blog?

It’s that time of the year again where I feel a little lost with my blog. I don’t know what I want to do going forward.

Even though I ultimately write for myself, I still want to create content others enjoy reading.

I think I’m stuck in a rut, creating the same kind of content day in and day out.

I want to challenge myself, but I don’t know exactly how. I want to do better.

Sometimes I feel like I’m taking two steps backwards for every one step forward.

I’ve been thinking about trying other platforms, trying different projects. Problem is I’m stubborn, so I want to stick to what I’ve been doing.

On bad days, I think I’ll never measure up, never be good enough no matter what I do.

I know I’m not the best blogger. I’ll never be perfect. But I am good enough.

I won’t make excuses. I want to work harder and smarter. I’ll push myself, even and especially when no one else will.

The journey ahead won’t be easy. No one said it will be. Still, I’ll try to enjoy myself.

Besides, I don’t have to know exactly where I’m going all the time. When I’m lost, I’ll find my way.

I believe in creating my own chances. So I will.

I might stumble and fall, but I can get back up and try again.

Failing is a learning opportunity. It’s a time for growth. Most importantly, it’s one step closer to success.

Some Reasons Why I Love Blogging

  • I love creating. It’s my favourite. I like making stuff. It’s fun to start with nothing and turn it into something.
  • I love the community. Honestly, I never expected it to be so supportive and encouraging. Other creators inspire me.
  • I love control. I get to do what I want, when I want, how I want.
  • I love the old editor. More than the new one anyway.
  • I love seeing my progress. Sometimes I get so caught up with life that I don’t realize how far I’ve come. So it’s nice to look back and see where I was five years ago compared to where I am now.
  • I love receiving feedback. Positive or constructive. Both let me know what works and what I can work on.
  • I love growth. Blogging has helped me grow in so many ways. I’m grateful for this journey. I hope it never ends. I’ve not only grown as a blogger, but I’ve also grown as a human being.
  • I love learning. I’ve learned a little about a lot of things through trial and error. I know there’s still a lot for me to learn.
  • I love being challenged. When I started, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. Blogging is hard. If it was easy, everyone could be a blogger.
  • I love connecting. I’m terrible at interacting with people in real life, but I really appreciate every online interaction. Thank you.
