So tonight I decided to revist my blog. And it made me realise quite a few things. Mainly that I write a lot of garbage (this post included).
I’d like it not to be though. So I’m going to try and get to the point without too much rambling.
I’d like to give this blogging thing another shot. Why do I want to blog? I want a place to document all the random projects and experiments I play with and the lessons I learn.
This year (2017) I’ve been trying to focus on one general theme each month.
January was finances. Which I freaking nailed if I do say so myself.
February was health and fitness… which I sucked at, but I’m still trying to push along and get better anyway.
For March I’m thinking relationships is something I’d like to focus on. Nurturing my relationship with my husband primarily. And building relationships with other people as well. Even now I can feel myself being drawn towards all the other little projects I want to work on, but I really want to make this a priority as my friends and family are the most important thing in my life, and I want to be able to appreciate them more, instead of always being caught up in my own little world.
If I’m being honest, I don’t feel confident about my ability to focus on putting relationships first for the next month. I’m really feeling a pull towards wanting to put some time into a bunch of side projects at the moment, which usually means I go down a rabbit hole and neglect everything else in my life.
But this is important and I want to commit to being focussed on it for a month, to help me remember what is really important, and who I want to be. Focussing on one thing a month has been getting me much more progress then when I try to do everything all the time.
And right now the most important thing is Anthony. All my little ideas and projects mean nothing if I don’t have him to share them with.
We’ve always had a great relationship, but it feels like that if I focussed a bit more and gave it more attention, that we could make it something really amazing, and I think it would help me become a better, less self-centred person as well.
Bring on March. And putting other people first.
