Most recent discovery/ aha! moment: the equation of elements combined to create an ideal blogging lifestyle is not a part of my natural order. I have yet to figure out how to corral the thoughts running off of my mind in an organized fashion. My mind goes over whatever the speed limit is at all times. I know I have some good ideas, but when it comes to executing them…that’s a different story. In conclusion, I can dream up a wondrous, sometimes way too involved plan, but making it come together for show is another story.
This current blog post shows a more realistic view of my life. I didn’t plan to document this. I simply acted on an idea within ten minutes of pondering it. No organization, no thought-out wordage to accompany my pictures. This is off the cusp of my brain without any filters.
Since starting ‘a blogging lifestyle’ in late 2016, I’ve learned a lot; learned that starting something is always the hardest part. My life has changed drastically in ways too good to describe. Raise your hand if you’ve sifted through your daily activities trying to make some sort of sense, or organization, out of them. Add to that ambitions too large for one day’s worth of work. (Good things take time, sometimes, a lot of time!)
Once upon a time, there was a day in which I finally got my hour. My ‘hour’ was my time to do whatever I wanted. It was a long time coming-as far back as figuring out my teenage self as a high school junior. Between college and jobs and moving and life, I hadn’t had my ‘hour.’ I’d come up with a plan to start a blog. So, I did it. And it is a far cry from what I imagined. Because I’m a complex individual and can’t make things easy for myself, I’ve struggled to hone in on what it is my blog is really accomplishing. Or, rather, what I’d envisioned for it; has it come to fruition?
In lieu of posts that’ve paved the way of my blog since the beginning, here’s a new kind! A new one to start blogging as a lifestyle. Unhinged, unrestrained and honestly unorganized to the naked eye.
Here we go: On a whim, a hope and a prayer! Nah, just kidding. On a whim is pretty accurate though. I’m working on Project Life. Check it out here if you’re not familiar. I waited until the right time to do with it what I thought would be the best way to represent my life. Well, that never happened. One important thing I’ve learned is to just stop waiting. Stop talking about doing things and just do them. Really, there’s not enough time in the day, or a lifetime, to wait for the right moment for everything.
I’ve taken what I’ve discovered about myself throughout my life, my skills, my likes, my favorites and began the journey of showcasing my gathered bits and pieces.
I’m the type of person that needs tools laid out in front of me or I’ll forget they’re there. The same thing goes for jewelry, except my rings. Ironically, my wedding ring hasn’t fit since I was pregnant during the summertime (last year). I have yet to get it resized.
College was a tease because the work spaces I was blessed with were amazing. Trying to recreate a semi-similar version of those in real life is laughable. Maybe unless you picked the right place at the right time and got lucky. I got lucky, but not in the sense of studio space. That’s still a work in progress.
