So I am back. I haven’t written in way too long but there are a few reasons for that. One of the reasons is that I have been pretty busy this semester. The other reason, and the one that really made me stop writing, is that writing for my blog began to feel like work. It wasn’t something I really wanted to do anymore. I was just doing it because I felt like I had to. It was Monday which meant another blog post. That’s not what I wanted my blog to be. I originally started my blog to become a better me. To have a place where I put my thoughts to help me become the person I had the potential to be. My blog lost that point and recently, I have too.
This is what brings me back to “The Journey that Matters.” Not only meaning my blog but to life as well. When I was thinking of a title for my blog, it was so hard. I could not find one that I was 100% happy with but looking back on it, I know I picked the right one. I don’t believe I ever explained it and seeing how this is a rebirth of my blog (hopefully) now seems like a good time to really explain my title.
I chose “The Journey That Matters” a while ago so I cannot really going into the thinking behind it or the process of how I narrowed it down to this but I will always know the meaning of it. Throughout life, we go through so many journeys. All of these journeys are important, some more than others, because they shape us into who we are going to be. However, the journey that really matters to me is just that: figuring out who I want to be and becoming it.
Both parts to this journey can be difficult. Some people have trouble deciding who they want to become. They may get confused thinking that who others want them to be is who they want to be. They struggle seeing clearly. This was not the case for me. I had a good idea of who I wanted to be in my head and did not let anymore change that.
When I started my journey though, I had trouble actually becoming who I wanted to be, who I had the potential to be. So I began to write. I wrote about the person I wanted to be, the lessons I wanted to teach myself and I changed. I loved who I was, the person I was becoming. However, I become content. I thought I was good enough. My journey halted but it wasn’t over. That is one great thing about this journey, it never ends. Yes, it may also be a bad thing that it never ends but only if you see it that way. I see it as in I can always improve. I can always become a better person. I can always change who I am today from who I was yesterday to get to who I have the potential to be. It is time for me to get back on this path and to get my journey going again. Although I am not promising anything, this will be the first of many more post to come. As I am giving new life to my journey, I hope that you find your journey and give it life for the first time or give it new life like me.
