Hello guys, how have you all been? Welcome back to my blog! I know I’ve been distant from this blog, but trust me, I didn’t mean to. I’ve just had so much going on with me. I missed you guys so much.
I wouldn’t have written this blog post if not for a challenge going on. I was thinking I wouldn’t write here for a very long time, but here I am guys. This challenge is going to last 15 days straight and I’m going to be posting here everyday. So guys, I need you on this!!
For today’s blog post I thought I would do a kind of ‘update’ post. For the past couple of months, I haven’t really been posting on my blog as regularly as I would have liked to, despite my best intentions at the beginning of the year to blog consistently. I haven’t been myself lately, with several thoughts running through my mind.
Let’s face it, motivation is a drive for one’s better self, it is ingrained in us. It sometimes deals with inner self motivation and some people get motivation doing difficult tasks, not because they enjoy doing it, but there’s going to be a reward on completion of that task. Many of us only put in real work or effort when we feel motivated enough to do so because it’s easier to focus and get things done, some days we wake up and barely want to roll out of bed while others days we get up and feel like someone injected us with a cup of coffee with an espresso shot on the side. Motivation is nothing more than our willingness to attempt/try a thing, it’s like that dish at a fancy restaurant that you really want to try but you THINK it might not taste good so you pass up on it and miss out on what might have been the best meal you have ever eaten.
Every day is different, everyday feels different, it’s important to have the mindset, the tools and know how, in order to deal with and get through the things that life throws at us.
In this blog post, I want to discuss my relationship with my blogging alongside some self-reflection outside of the blogging world.
I absolutely love blogging and it’s honestly one of my favourite things to do. There are many ways that blogging allows me to be creative and also write down what I feel. Even though I haven’t been posting as consistently on my blog, my love for blogging is still there, but there’s just one thing missing.
In all honesty, I’ve been lacking in motivation, as you can probably gather from the title of my blog post, because I have school work up in my sleeves. Motivation is definitely a big thing when it comes to writing and keeping your blog up to date, but it’s something I’ve been struggling with. I think that schooling whilst blogging on the side makes it more challenging. It’s difficult to find the motivation to write a blog post because of the mental stress I go through in school.
Another reason why I feel like I haven’t posted consistently on my blog is that I’ve been putting a lot of pressure on myself, dealing with insecurities, and social anxiety, but realistically this isn’t going to work on a regular basis. I drafted different contents in my head, but I don’t want to make the quality of my blog posts suffer just to pump out more content. I’m sure you guys would agree with me on that one.
Moving forward with my blog, I’m not promising to keep posting on a monthly basis, but I’ll try my possible best to do that. You know life can be hectic and things can get in the way, but I want to make a pact with myself to post on my blog at least monthly as I said when I started this blog. It may not be 3 times a month, but I sure will post one or two times.
This post was a bit of a ramble in a way, but I still wanted to post it nonetheless. I feel like that’s how my mind is at the moment, but I want to make an effort to take control of the things around me in my life. One of those things is blogging! So, let’s do this.
