It is very inspiring what we can discover through hard times. We just have to be open to receive the messages within the challenges of change in our lives. Positivism, gratitude, empathy and progress should be our main focus to figuring out each of our lives.
A little over 2 years ago I started this blog. I started it on fundamentals of positivism. I told you right away how important goals are in your life and I told you how important they are in mine. The thing more important than having goals is achieving them. Once you have done all you could, once you stand within your achievements it is always important to make new achievements. For every goal you achieve make a new one. Your life is not written in stone. People change, we change, and I change. We always want that change, but in a positive direction. I have achieved some of my goals and changed others in my life time, but in the last 2 years my determination for my goals has been greater than any years of my life.
Formerly a Graphic Designer my goal was to sample what else is out there for me. This may sound like I am a crazy job hopper but so be it. I mentioned wanting to try Marketing, Event Planning, Social Media networking, and working on a cruise ship. Can you guess which one I did not do? Well believe it or not I have tried every single one! It was cool to look at my goals I wrote on my blog and realize how much I achieved in my career in just 2 years time. It was anything but easy and worth it every step of the way. I even went above and beyond my goal here. At one point I was painting grout in a new hospitals bathroom and I also started a new career as an ASD ESE Paraprofessional. It does not stop there I realize I was meant to explore more.
This blog was not only meant to share positivism but to improve my writing. Certainly it is not novel quality work yet but all you grammatically charged followers can absolutely appreciate how far I have come with my writing skills and trying new things. I also wanted to grow this blogger bigger and bigger. I do not have nearly as many followers as I had hoped but gathering those followers is an art form in itself, an art form that will take priority at the right time. For now I am proud of my 200+ posts with over 6,000 views from 85 different countries! I owe allot of my success with followers to those that have found me and those that I have found to help me get stronger.
A big goal I have kind of set aside was getting back in touch with my fine art side. I am ok with this because writing has been quite the art form and learning experience for me. I have lost the desire to own an art gallery but I have certainly gained something more exciting in its place. I can still bake a cake and decorate it like nobody’s business but this is also something I have stepped away from. I changed and my goals are evolving in that direction.
It was a goal of mine to explore spirituality once again. In the past 2 years I have attended many services of different religions. I am happy to say that I may have found my place in the spiritual world, and for now I am going to role with it. I had said to myself that I wanted my blog to be a non religious form of positivism and I will stick to that. God, Angles, and whoever you respectfully worship is one avenue we can take for a more positive and prosperous life style. In my experience most people’s positivism is religious base, I want to find more avenues of positivism outside of that. Certainly you can connect many things of what I say to your faith but I want to give you something different. I will certainly have blog post in my future that are base off faith ideas, I am sure of it, and I respect and accept everyone’s differences and I am grateful to have found so many people that respect my differences.
