I’m guilty. I paid a premium on setting up this blog only to abandon it after a few months. I am also guilty of being an addict–I consume Facebook and Instagram like I drink water, which is all the time. I buy things that the internet wants me to buy. Recently, they have been fountain pens, journals, cutesy backpacks, tech–everything!
When I came to this realisation, I felt, enough! I do not want to be merely reactive to the push and pull of the world, I want to be the curator of my life. I want to take back control of the things that I want.
I want to CREATE something! I can’t remember the last time I created anything or observed an idea or experience and dwelled on it. These few short months, I’ve forgotten how cool it is to learn new things and how powerful ideas are when they are internalised.
So I’m going to start again, and I’m starting now. And I will use my blog as a brain dump. I’m going to throw away my self-imposed rules about how a blog post “should” be and just go with the flow with writing and observation–who am I trying to be accountable for anyway? Who am I trying to impress?
This is the first step. 😊
