How many time are you willing to pick yourself up? We all fall face first into the ground once in a while, but what matters is the way you get up and try again.
If you follow me on Instagram, or know me personally, you might notice this is the billionth rendition of my website. Whether I changed my theme, got a new domain, or deleted all of my blog posts. This isn’t my first first entry.
While I tend to wear my heart on my sleeves, there are many things I don’t talk about. I don’t talk about my personal finances, my living situations, and what seems to be constant vagabonding. If you’re a creative, you understand the struggle between trying to achieve your goals, and the expectations put forth by society.
We all need a passion.
Music production was one of my first and biggest passions. I would consider myself a music producer first, and every other creative outlet I have, second.
Over the last few years, I’ve been on a mission to change a lot of things in my life. It’s the sole reason for starting a blog, learning web design, and figuring out online marketing.
I’ve also had this growing passion for writing. I want to blog a lot, I want to write a book, I want to write essays, and so on. All part of a larger theme to change me, my thoughts, and my relationship with the world.
What’s not being measured can’t be improved.
Time management is crucial though, and lately, I’ve been a mess. I have many excuses. Like the fact that I’ve moved a lot, made foolish decisions, had too many projects at once, and don’t have space and time to focus. But like I said, they’re all excuses.
The last few days/weeks have been really introspective. I’ve spent a lot of time digging deep, facing my flaws, and feeling bummed about the projects I’ve abandoned.
So the reason why I choose to blog more often and honestly is to measure what I want to improve. Also, I hope that through my insights I can help someone, even if it’s just one person.
Keep your battlefield minimal.
For now, my posts will be simple, straightforward. I will not spend much time looking for the right header picture or any of that. I will avoid lists and clickbaity titles. These will be either short entries or long pieces.
I want as little resistance as possible between me and the front page of my website. We get so overwhelmed by projects. By “we” I mean me. I always think they have to be perfect right from the start. I give no room for experimentation.
Who knows, maybe you’ll find a reason to stick around?
