Why Am I Doing This?

Blogging, Life


(You can find the real reason here.)

I started thinking to myself, why am I doing this?

“Pushing content.”

Cause that’s all that it is. That’s all that this has resulted to. When you say it that way, it sounds as if I’m trying to sell something and to some degree I guess I am.


Blog Thought #5: “You Don’t Have Time to Dwell on That!”

Blogging, Inspiration

Since I’ve started my new venture I’ve come to realize the importance of having positive thoughts. Well, actually I’ve known this was important for quite some time now, but never actually considered it when it came to accomplishing goals and dreams.

Starting anything new is challenging. But what’s even more challenging is dealing with your thoughts during the process.

A Peek Into My Journal…(Where ‘Bestie Talk’ is Headed)


I thank you all for following along with me and being a part of this journey. It really is appreciated more than you realize. But as some of you may know, I have bigger goals and bigger dreams for this blog and my channel. I sat down to journal the other day (I had ‘Bestie Talk’ in mind) and this is what I wrote:

I realize that there is a part of myself that I’ve been wanting to share–one that’s been hidden for so long. The part that opens up in vulnerability, letting others into the thoughts that lie within me. What most people would hide due to embarrassment or shame or just for the sake of appearing one way before others, I want to share. 
We all have many goals that we’d like to reach and obtain in life, but sometimes the difficulty of accomplishing those goals seem impossible. 
Most people “share” when they’ve arrived but never let others in on what accomplishing their goals look like during the process. That’s the part that I want to share. 
Bestie talk is about accomplishing one’s goals and doing everything that one set out to do. But it’s also about sharing those “not so glamorous” moments with others. 


To add to that, I want ‘Bestie Talk’ to be a learning experience for both myself and others. I have in mind to do some “conversational” pieces with friends and family that I will include on my channel and blog along with some interviews of those who are accomplishing their goals and insights on their process and what it took for them to get to that place. I’m also thinking of doing a 2-3 minute “life” vlog series which will entail the personal struggles that I encounter (or have in the past) along with the things that I am doing to overcome them.

If you think any of this will be interesting, I would love to hear your feedback. Let me know your thoughts, questions, and concerns (if there are any)…
Also, if you care to share, what are some goals that you have for your blog? What are you doing to achieve those goals?
