Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying” will try again tomorrow”
Mary Anne Radmacher.
It’s been a while since I sat down to pen my thoughts not because I stopped loving my blog but because I let other irrelevant things become a priority in my life. For that; my apologies.
I remember how I felt in December 2017, I was going to take the blogging world by surprise and become the next big thing. January came with a blast, and it made me realize it wasn’t time yet.
I am grateful for my loyal (awesome) readers but for a while I lost my path. Things that seemed to excite me stopped exciting me and that is fine.
For one I miss writing.
This year I had a collaboration which fell through and my plans were not going as I thought. And yes a part of me was prepared for failure. Trust me when I say, the devil is a bad ass dude who always has a way of making you put pressure on yourself unnecessarily.
I took time off to ask myself “why did I start this blog”
Because in trying to keep up with the social media world, I forgot the reason I started and focused on other things. I thought out my blog post for weeks before putting it out because I wanted to be perfect but life is not perfect; Even this post has been in my draft box for weeks and I am just being scared again but I refuse to let fear be the ruling factor in my life.
I realized that just because something made you start something doesn’t necessarily mean that will keep fueling the adventure it has to be about you doing your thing.
I am still trying to figure out what God has put in my heart to do. For one, understanding why it’s necessary for me to fail and being fine with that. Being truly happy despite what cards life has dealt me.
Hence forth I would really like to upload a post at least twice a month. But I thought I show one of the encouragements I got from my reader.
I decided to be open about these past 8 months and Stop procrastinating.
I upgraded my blog from word press to .com that I am excited about.
Anyways to re-launch my blog again I decided to do a giveaway.
