This is the first of two posts today, and I wanted it to be quick. This is just a brief post to acknowledge that I can remain consistent and achieve something if I put my mind to things and stick to them.
The big 50, big 5-0. I have made 50 posts, whether sporadically, consistently, or twice a year – it has accumulated to 50. From my very first post in 2017 (now deleted), where I randomly had the urge to write about my health – the first time I felt the urge to write since I was a child, I wrote short stories. From 2018, I wrote two posts about my thoughts and feelings – to 2021, barely posting – to 2022, where I got into the flow of posting regularly until I stopped.
At the start of this year, 2023, I promised myself to remain consistent with my writing and posting, and I did pretty well the first half of the year until I fell into a funk and stopped. When I get into a funk, I lack in my writing and other aspects of my life. When I turned 28 in September, I promised myself to attempt to write every day, to be better and work on the craft I love that brings me happiness and peace. Even though I haven’t been consistently writing every day, I can say that I am about 80% of the way there, writing now more than I ever have. The more I write, the more I feel better.
This is a feat that I never thought I would have reached, and I only noticed how much I posted last week. Writing about my thoughts, feelings, experiences and reviews, whichever they may have been – I managed to put them out, and I am pleased about that.
I know nothing in life comes easy and how hard it is to keep at things. But as long as you push through – you can improve yourself daily. Writing on this blog has helped me in ways I cannot explain personally and professionally.
I just want to end this by saying thank you to those who have taken the time to read, like, and comment on my posts. If I am honest, I don’t post to seek any validation from people, as it is an open diary that I have felt I needed to put out to hold myself accountable for things and to look back and see my thoughts and feelings regarding what I have gone through – so to those who have read, I genuinely do appreciate it.
Cheers to many more posts, consistency in life and good health!!
