If I’m being honest, my friend Tati helped me take these photos and I was racking my brain on what to write as a post to go with these pictures! But today I’m taking Lydia’s approach to blogging, and I’m going to talk about a topic that is completely unrelated to the photos because why the hell not.
I’ve been feeling so uninspired lately and I don’t know if it’s the January blues, my brain being crap or just needing a break. I’m kind of shaking my head as I’m typing this up because I don’t really agree with any of those reasons. I feel like they’re excuses and I don’t know about you guys, but I never feel content with my content (see what I did there? lol). I always want to do better, to work harder and to be prouder. It’s a good and a bad thing, obviously, because it means I’m kind of a workaholic, but also I’m always pushing myself to try harder. Are any of you guys like this? I’ve also started realizing and learning that maybe you (I) can’t work any harder than you (I) are sometimes and you (I) need to be proud of everything you’ve (I’ve) achieved so far. It’s a bit of a double edged sword, the world is constantly pushing you to be better, and social media makes us compare ourselves all the time, but the only person I try to compare myself to is me. I don’t know if there’s anyway to put a healthy amount of pressure on yourself, do any of you know how to do that?
Anyway, this is kind of a promise to you and to myself, I’m gonna work hard, I’m always gonna push myself and never stop trying outdo myself. But I’m also going to try to appreciate my work and ease up on the pressure. Do you guys think you work too hard? Do you think there is such a thing? Got any goals for the month of February? Tweet me and we’ll keep each other updated on our progress as the month goes on! One of my goals for the month of February is to try and put more time into my writing, to work on it and make it better and more interesting for you. I’ve realized that what I usually do on here is throw information at you guys without adding any kind of background, no story, and it all stays quite impersonal. I want to change that. I was reading Lydia’s post this morning on “getting your blogging mojo” back. I always admire her writing and how good she is at making me feel like I’m sitting right next to her. Other than that, I really just want to keep being consistent, I’ve been loving posting on my youtube, it’s been a kick to my confidence but also my creativity, I love coming up with video ideas of things I want to watch.
I hope this inspired you, or maybe you feel the same way as me! If that is the case, we’ll keep working hard together. don’t worry, we got this (I say as I chug my fourth cup of coffee of the day).
