Ya’ll, I started this blog when I was in college.
I wanted a creative outlet for my thoughts, and in the 5 or so years that this has been live, I graduated college, changed jobs twice, and lived in 4 different places. Needless to say, the past few years have been in a constant state of flux, and it’s been reflected in the handful of posts that I’ve done.
With change comes a lot of uncertainty, and I struggled to find my footing in this post-college life. I tried to find myself through a lot of trial and error, especially in the realm of hobbies. I wanted so desperately to find “my thing” that I thought would be my defining role to give me some sort of guidance and direction in the real world, so I tried anything and everything I had an ounce of interest in. I ended up leaving a graveyard of projects that I started and either never finished or quit before it could really take off.
Looking into 2020, I want to revisit that graveyard and give these projects another shot. This time around, I want to focus, and that will be my intention for the rest of the year. Instead of casting my net far and wide to see what sticks, I want to 1) be intentional about what I choose to dedicate my time to, and 2) stay focused when I pick a project to work on. I want to stop abandoning projects as soon as I encounter an obstacle and stay focused enough to see it through to the end.
I know this is way easier said than done – as with most new year’s resolutions and intentions. But I plan on giving it a shot because I have nothing to lose. I can gain so much more by staying focused, like learning discipline, perseverance, and accountability. I’m looking forward to seeing the results and opportunities this brings for me, and I am excited to share more as the year goes on.
Watch out for me, 2020! I’m coming for ya!
