Today’s post is a little bit about self-discovery and vision, and to be honest, I’m not sure if those are the exact words I want, but I’m going to roll with them. I’ve felt a bit absent this week in social media, but I think it’s because I’ve strayed from the path I want to be on. My Instagram posts aren’t as reflective of my journey as they used to be. I don’t feel authentic and my page doesn’t match my vision. I need change. I need to find myself again and remind myself of why I want to be a part of this writing community. I need to find my vision and really acknowledge my ow goals. I want to inspire. I want to share my writing journey with others so that people don’t think that they are alone in this.
I’ve felt a bit lost these past few weeks, not really sure what I was doing or where I was going. I’ve been questioning myself and my goals and that happens sometimes. We all do it. I think it’s the end of the year that sends us all in to a panic. We worry that we haven’t done enough or that we’ll never do enough, but it just isn’t true. We survived another year. We did so many amazing days. Don’t ruin your success story by looking toward the future, by thinking about what you haven’t done yet. You’ll get there. You’ll do it.
I’m not sure where I’m going with this post, but I think that’s okay. I’ve been so caught up on trying to get one of these out every Wednesday that I’ve lost the joy of it. I’ve stressed myself out trying to think of topics to the point where all inspiration ceases. So I think I need to try a different approach. I’m going to post on this blog when inspiration strikes, not just because it’s Wednesday again and I need to have content out. I feel like I say more and give more when it comes from the heart. When I write because I have something to say, not because I feel like I have to say something. You guys will find more value in these if I put them out when necessary, if I make them more genuine. Today’s post for example. It’s all over the place. It’s the random ramblings of a writer who hasn’t written yet today, even though it 2pm. It’s my thoughts spilling onto the page, because I can think better when I put the words out in the world, when I get them out of my head. It’s not perfect, but that’s why it’s so me.
I hope you guys enjoyed this and I hope you’re on board with me being a bit more spontaneous. I hope to be more true to myself in this coming year instead of conforming to the trends of others and this is one of the ways in which I want to do so. You will probably hear from me again before the end of the year, though I’m not sure when. Until then, enjoy the holidays and, as always, keep writing.
