What do you regularly do to elevate your mind, challenge yourself, be creative, get out of this bubble you are evolving in?
I blog because it is a necessity.
Some people need to go shopping, to do sport or to party, to experiment this satisfying feeling of excitement meaning they are right here, living, breathing. Others need to dedicate themselves to their homework, others to their work.
I need to blog. I need to blog to know that I am alive and kicking, that I am not merely existing, letting life live through me, but living life fully, contributing to a project which deeply resonates with me which touches on two concepts that hold a key place in my heart: writing and travelling.
I blog to express my creativity.
I need to create, I need to coordinate, to freely conceptualise my own ideas, giving life to my own philosophy, giving space to my own individuality, understanding the depth of my identity. There are different ways I currently express my creativity but throughout blogging my poetry and my creative projects took a remarkable shape.
I blog to express my humanity.
It’s about authenticity, relatability, dialogue, honesty. I could have decided to write a book about wellness but I have chosen to blog, to express part of my story, to be vulnerable. Because of how quickly information flows, you get to relate to so many people, with like-minded individuals. You get to feel more understood an I believe the direct exchange that can come from a post can be extremely powerful.
I blog to spread positivity.
Different people chose different tools for different things at different times to stay positive, to spread positivity. Things that they know barely nothing about, things they have never done but somehow feel passionate about. At a particularly laid-back stage, in my life, I have chosen to start and blog and I am grateful for blogging has chosen me too, and considerably uplifted me.
It’s been a year, and it is hard. Often, I am being hard on myself for failing to be consistent, or writing a not so well received post. I doubt, I doubt a lot wondering if what I am doing makes sense, wondering if I should stop.
Nevertheless, in the end, I always keep on blogging for it is a process that is bringing me light and making me light allowing me to develop skills and to develop myself. I guess sometimes you need to do things not because of how popular you are but just because, because you trust.
I believe it is healthy to do regularly one thing, to elevate your mind, challenge yourself, be creative, get out of this bubble you are evolving in. What is your thing?
