Life. It’s wonderful, but sometimes certain aspects of it get in the way of us doing things we like to do. Work, School, or Family can keep you so busy that it’s hard to have time for anything else. And unfortunately for me, when that happens, other things in my life get cut out.
I’m in my last couple months of high school and life has been absolutely crazy for me. And it’s not only blogging that suffered. I’ve really been thinking lately and I realized that so many things I used to do have fallen to the wayside. It got to the point where I spent -zero- free time doing anything like reading or blogging, or even any hobbies in general. My reading has dropped drastically, and some months, I was barely reading at all. For someone like me, that’s a big deal.
So, why did the things that I loved -like reading and blogging- fall to the wayside? Because life. Unfortunately, the things that we must do come before everything else and sadly, sometimes it pushes other things out of the way. And reflecting on this lately, it just makes me realize that I need to make more time for the things that I love.
Blogging is something that I love and want to continue doing into the future.
Lately, I’ve made a sort of personal resolve. I really need to start doing more things that I love again. I love writing posts. I love blogging in general. And I love reading. Yet, those things that made me so happy got cut out. Well, I’m putting them back in. Life is stressful sometimes, but I’m not going to let those things that bring me joy leave my life.
I just wanted to put this out there and say that this is something that I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. It’s something that I’ve noticed has happened in my life and it’s not good and I don’t like it. So, I’m going to change it. This blog isn’t just a place for me to review books, but it’s somewhere that I can express myself.
Has anyone else found that this is happening or has happened to them?
PS: I’m going to shoot for a post every Friday, until I can really take off with it again. And hopefully I can finally learn how to schedule blog posts instead of doing everything last minute. J
