The day I started this blog was a scary day for me. I was so scared. Every free e-book I had exchanged my email address for had said I should have a niche. I didn’t have one. I really wanted to stop at that point. What would my blog be about? I knew I was a chatterbox in real life but I had to be more than that to catch people’s attention.
I tried to write a list of qualities I had but I couldn’t write anything. It’s like when someone asks you what you do for fun. You just stare and pray for some cool sounding answer to pop out of your mouth. Over the months, I’ve become more comfortable. I may not know my ‘niche’ yet but I know my vision.
To encourage and inspire.
I may have to find some clever way to write that eventually but this is the basis of it all. Inspiring people. I wake up every morning to see a feed flooded with clothes, makeup, skin care and exotic destinations. They get me excited and make me dream more but it also opens my eye to a neglected region.
We have a lot of people looking fine on the outside but broken on the inside. I want to help with that. I may not be able to fix all of it but I’m going to try. There are so many issues youths deal with everyday. I want to help people work through that. With my experiences, the lessons I’ve learned and the books I’ve read, I’ll offer the knowledge I have.
One area very dear to my heart is my walk with God. It’s not been the easiest walk but it has been an interesting one. I’m very shy about everything I do and all the experiences I have.Starting this blog made me realize that if inspiring people is the end goal, I may have to open up more.
Over the few months, I’ve been writing, I’ve learnt to dig deeper, read more, listen more and have more discussions. I’ve made new friends and left the old ones because I discovered we no longer have the same goals and visions. The only part I’m still working on, is not becoming a complete introvert. Because of the large volume of work I’ve had to keep up with, I’ve become very withdrawn from the rest of the world.
I’m still getting the hang of it all. For me, it is a learning process. I hope to learn to balance my life and juggle all areas effectively. The beauty of being in the eyes of the public is having to constantly check yourself. The people you teach, teach you more than you could imagine. At last my music teacher from high school was right. He always said;The best way to learn is to teach. Click To Tweet
To anyone reading this, I hope your eyes open and you see life from a new perspective. At the very least, making someone smile works just as well for me.
I may not be able change the world at large but I’ll try, one person at a time.
Inspiration is very much like motivation.
People say motivation does not last long. That’s why like bathing, we recommend it daily.
