Ok. Ok. OK! Is it too late now to say SOOOORRYYYYY? I’ve been working really hard this last month and a half.
I have to start this blog post by humbling apologising. For those who were following my journalling series back in January. I started something that I knew I couldn’t finish.
But, being the ambitious girl that I am. *cue* the Wale track *cue* It was an unrealistic goal I set for myself. Knowing I could not commit to writing a new blog post EVERY SINGLE DAY. I went ahead and told myself I could do it.
Here we are almost 2 months later and SO MUCH has happened since January 31st. Like seriously! I won’t bore you with too many details but I do think it would be nice for you to know what’s been up with me. As well as where I plan to go for the rest of 2017.
I have, to be honest with you. Blogging is HARD WORK! I am a lover of written words. Poetry is my go-to style of writing. Letters would be my second choice. Coming in third would be long-form blog posts and magazine articles.
English was not my favourite subject in school. It was actually Math because I KILLED IT! I did well in English. That is because I have a natural talent for written words.
In 2016, I was browsing Twitter, as I do from time to time when I have free time at work. I came across this tweet:
At the time, I was still on the clock. So I liked the tweet and went back to work. During my lunch break, I read through the blog post and said, “YES, this is what I need to do on my blog”.
There are so many reasons why I wanted to do this type of blog post. The main one is the mental health benefits of self-reflection and self-study. Circa 2015, I was averse to looking within to find the answers I seek. But present day 2017. I am all for meditations, quiet times, journaling and anything else that helps me get to know me!
Without further ado, I am going to take stock of January 2017. Sharing my highs and my lows with you. If you would like to something similar for yourself click here to download a free printable!
