Motivation

Happy Sunday my friends. How is everyone doing? I usually find motivation and inspiration anywhere, just going about my daily life brings me a lot of ideas and thoughts that come to my head. It sometimes seems that everywhere I turn, every situation I’m in, every person I meet, could end up being my next idea for a blog post.

Motivation for me also comes from other people. Perhaps my biggest motivator is you all and the kind people that keep telling me to push and pursue my passion of writing and blogging. I’ve loved writing since I was a child. When I was younger it would take a while for the ideas to come to me, but now as an adult, the ideas keep flowing. I love the feeling of sitting down with a pen and putting my thoughts on paper, I also love to sit down with my laptop and type away.

Whatever makes you feel motivated, keep seeking it. Keep pushing towards your goals and your passions. You were meant to pursue the things that light your soul on fire!

Blogging Community

As with most things in life, we don’t know what to expect an outcome to be like until we actually try.  When I started my blog, my hope was to create content that people could relate to, content that would uplift, inspire, motivate, enlighten others.  I was not sure if my work would make an impact, but I was sure hoping that it would.  Never did I imagine the sense of community blogging would end up offering me.

For many years and actually still to this day, I often turn to the Internet for information, research, and understanding.  I also love to read blogs, I find the conversation style of a blog to be so personal and I love to learn from others and read what is inside the hearts and minds of other individuals.  I too wanted to help others the way that blogs have helped me all of these years.

From the beginning of my blogging journey, I have been amazed by other’s generous love, support, encouragement, motivation, and respect.  It is so nice to be a part of this amazing blogging community.  I love that we all have a place to come to that we can share our thoughts, ideas, lessons, all by having a mutual love and passion for writing and expression.  There’s no greater feeling than to write a blog post and have someone say that it spoke to them, empowered them, opened their eyes, or simply that they could relate.  I think it’s wonderful that we can all inspire and motivate each other.  I love you all and I appreciate your work.  I enjoy leaving comments on your blogs about how your posts have touched me.  You all are very talented individuals.

It is so wonderful to be a part of such a great blogging community.  Being a blogger has taught me so much about myself and the world around me.  It is pretty amazing to be a part of a family that all have a passion for the same thing.  I am so happy to have met you all and I hope that you know how much I appreciate and am thankful for every one of you.  Your support, love, and kindness mean the world to me.  Keep shining blogging community!

A Side of Me

There are different sides to us that come about as we navigate through life.  We may have a shy, serious, confident, or anxious side.  There are many sides to someone and they are uniquely ours, they make up our personality.  Some sides of us go quiet until they are awakened, or provoked, others are a daily part of who we are. 

Blogging brings out a side of me that is seen on a regular basis, but also a side that very few people get to see in my personal life.  By nature, I am a very silly and goofy person, I love to laugh and to make people laugh.  My sense of humor is rarely seen in my blogs because blogging brings out a more serious side of me.  Those who know me in real life know that serious is not typically a word to describe me, I am more of a laid back and goofy person.  I very much enjoy talking about deep topics and life experiences, but not all people like to engage in that sort of conversation and even for me it takes a special person, one that I am comfortable with, for me to bring that side out.

I thoroughly enjoy blogging, it is such a huge passion of mine.  I will actually be writing a blog post at some point dedicated to the reasons why I love to blog so much.  Blogging takes me to a different place, a different world, it is almost like when you hear people who love to read say they got lost in a book, or when you sit down to watch a movie, how it kind of takes you away from your own life and into another realm.  Through blogging, one can see my reflective, serious, deep-in-thought side, it brings out much more depth of my soul that I don’t show to many in my everyday life.  My thoughts start to flow as soon as I pick up a pen.

Blogging can be very personal as the blogger is typically writing about their innermost thoughts and life experiences.  I know many of my posts are inspired by these two things although my blogs are not extremely personal because I tend to direct my thoughts and experiences more to the general public in hopes that they will in some way inspire, enlighten, motivate, and make others feel connected.  I also tend to indirectly link my personal life into my blog posts.

I suppose that maybe this is why people like hobbies, they bring out different sides of us, they are a form of expression, they allow us to be ourselves.  Whatever you have a passion for, whatever sets your soul on fire, add that to your life and see where it takes you!
