As this year is winding down, it’s time for some reflection. Specially, about blogging. My blog isn’t where I want it to be but it’s exactly where it’s supposed to be (how’s that for a riddle?). What I mean by that is, that I have certain goals for my blog. I’m sure I’ll reach those goals but when it’s my appointed time to reach them. My blog is exactly where it’s supposed to be right now.
I’ll admit, it can be tempting to want to follow other blogs and do what other blogger are doing. But I know I have to follow my own path and listen to my heart. A couple of years ago I went to a fashion networking event. I was new to blogging and very eager to learn and network. While we were eating, I’m expecting to learn from others and that’s the opposite of what happened. For about two hours, the women gossiped. For. Two. Hours. I was so disappointed. I learned a valuable lesson that day: follow your own path. It’s good to learn from others but people should never stunt your growth or bring toxic energy. Maybe you can relate. In the sense you want to be at a certain level or reach a goal. It’ll happen. As long as you continue to work for it. The important thing to remember is to be yourself. Just listen to your heart and everything else will follow.
