So I have obviously neglected this blog for quite some time now. I’m trying to modify my life. At 24, I have no assets and luckily no liabilities too. I just have a job and still lost. But I won’t settle for that. Instead of spending my time over-thinking which is not helpful for my mental health, I have though of committing to my blog.
I was thinking lately, what would be positive diversions aside from counting the days ’til I can go on a vacation again? Here’s a list:
- Running – it has helped me a lot health-wise. I have come closer to my weight goal but I have still a long way to go. I have to improve on my endurance. My goal is to reach 6.5km in my next run. Luckily, I am surrounded by fit friends who encourage me.
- Writing – it’s a shame I have put this blogging thing aside because of my insecurities. Now, I am just writing for the sake of writing. Not the best writer out there but this is my outlet and I shall write what I want to write.
- Searching for places I want to visit – it’s rejuvenating. It’s the fuel that wants you to keep going. Working 9.5 hours a day and doing the same things, we have to make it a point we know the purpose why we’re doing what we’re doing. I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to a routine-based life, but at this point I have no choice. Sacrifices pay off in the end – you have to believe it.
- Making it a point to be grateful for the little things everyday – it’s the small things that really matter. We sometimes take things for granted. I want to make an effort to be grateful for the little things that make me smile. It doesn’t take much really.
The list could go on and on and that’s the main point of this post. I’m committing to posting every Tuesday and Sunday every week about anything under the sun.
I have been inspired by reading other articles of writers and bloggers about the adulting life. I don’t want to put pressure on myself. I have been stuck in the “I will live a simple life in an island” way of thinking. But I won’t be owning a beach hut with just words and dreams. So yes, I’m embracing the life I chose and the life I’m in now. And I’m putting my faith on myself that I’ll make it. That no matter how things didn’t go as planned, it doesn’t necessarily mean that things won’t work out in th end. There’s no point in whining and complaining and being stuck to what ifs. It’s about time I found what is. Basha???
An overview of my post for Tuesday: Getting a life insurance. I’m going to cook it well. If you have anything to advice me, feel free to do so!
