Starting my blogging journey helped me sort out my life and lean towards what matters. Since I published my first blog post, blogging became second nature to me. Every minute of the day was dedicated to sourcing for blog topics, writing blog posts, designing pins, blog marketing, and social media. I treated my blog like my start-up business from day one. I was motivated and driven to create something original and helpful to people in their twenties. I would say my life definitely has changed, in terms of habits, productivity, and character development. Blogging made me a better person.
There will always be stages in your life where committing to your regular daily routine feels like a chore. You find it impossible to do things at the time you set simply because you don’t feel like it. You don’t have the motivation nor the willpower to get out of your comfort zone and conquer the day. Just like any other human being, this is totally a normal feeling. But remember that the longer you’re in that anxious or undisciplined state of mind, the harder it is for you to get back on track. When you feel like you’re going to the deep end, you need to throw the rope and pull yourself together. Carefully laid-out strategies will help you form habits and stick with them until they turn into your instincts.
When you take risks, you don’t always get out of it on the right side of the coin. But what makes it so special is the possibility of experiencing something truly extraordinary that would never happen if you hide in your shell. This is why only very few people ever witness their highest potential in themselves because they’re the only ones who are willing to wade in the dirt to see it.
Playing it safe may decrease the chances of your failing but so will your chance of succeeding even higher than you had before. When you look back to your life, it’s better to remember the times when you stepped out of your comfort zone than playing it safe and boring. Sometimes, you need to take a leap of faith. Sometimes, you need to believe that life isn’t always coming to get you. Life is a juxtapose, and at the right time, you may be on the right side of things.
One of the many signs that tell when a person is demotivated or has lost passion with his work is how he acts and behaves himself toward Monday. People come to work tired and unenthusiastic because they feel unappreciated. They don’t like the work environment they’re in because their potential is limited. It could also be that their needs aren’t well taken cared of by the company. A lot of us don’t look forward to Monday for numerous reasons but mostly because of internal struggles that string from fear. Unless you’re the one in their shoes, you can’t blame them. If you dread the sound of Monday, you’re probably like almost everybody in this world. Monday blues refer to the negative emotions, mostly depressing feelings, that are tied with a Monday.
June 1st — the beginning of the rainy season in the Philippines. During this season, storms and monsoons hover over different parts of the country. Strong winds and heavy rain keep you up at night and wake you up early in the morning. Ironically, the cold weather makes you not get out of bed. It can get very tiring to start the day active and ready. You need to muster any willpower left to throw away the blankets and open the blinds inside your room.
