I can’t believe that it has been a year since I have started Being Yourself. It has been a journey full of emotions, doubts, fear, joy, happiness, excitement, discouragement and you name it. Writing has always been part of my life. I remember keeping journals and have my friends sign inside of one of them. I would take note of whatever I read and see around me. Well writing on paper will never get old.
It was a Winter afternoon when my best friend ( tired of me sending notes of whatever I see and read, lol) told me to start a blog and share my thoughts with everyone and of course he will be the first to read my posts. Being Yourself was the perfect name I thought of. I didn’t have any other option, I just said Being Yourself will be the perfect name.
It was so exciting to have a platform where I share my thoughts and meet new people, four months later the excitement faded and I wanted to quite. It took so much of my time, I didn’t know where I wanted to go with this blog, it was taking so much of my energy. I started to look up for other bloggers who are in the same niche as mine: how do they cope and balance their lives. I was posting when I felt like or when I remember I had a blog.
In March I decided to take a break from Being Yourself: I really felt like I gave up on myself. I dedicated the all month to research and proper planning, trying to make a choice if I wanted to cry on with my blog or not. I had a really good support system and I discover really great bloggers during my break. The following month, I found the right equilibrium among my blog, my private life, my studies and all other aspects of my life.
I schedule my pots every Sunday at 5 PM South African Time and I always plan for the month in advance. It has made my life a lot easier and I have more time to read, have fun with my family and friends and prepare for the upcoming posts. I never read a post once I have scheduled it, I like the surprising feeling of discovering what people who follow my blog see and read. Anyone else doing that?
The blog has also gave me the idea of having a micro blog on Instagram @selflovies_society . Make sure you follow the page and keep on Being You always and everywhere.
Starting Being Yourself was my greatness achievement last year and now it feels like it has always been part of my life. Thank you to all who have been part of the journey. People always ask what inspire me to write, the answer to that is You inspire me.
Are you being Yourself?
Till next Sunday
