For a long time, I’ve been trying to get a blog layout that represents me. I mean, one that I can always be proud of and beat my chest about. Honestly, I thought I wouldn’t get there. I’ve changed my blog’s appearance so many times, I’ve actually lost count. I’m not saying my blog is flawless now but I’m so satisfied and very happy with the way it looks. I asked my friends for their opinions and even though they didn’t seem as impressed as I was, I was content.
I’ve been going through my old blog posts and it made me realise how much I’ve grown. I’m referring to growth when it comes to what I believe in and what I stand for as a person. I see how I’ve gone from being my conservative self to this very liberal free-spirit. I don’t have any problem with people being conservative because I’ve been there. It just amazes me how different my posts are today from how they were just 6 months ago. I’ve changed and I’m happy with the change because it means I’m learning. And I can’t wait to learn some more and improve to become a better person.
Two posts that represent totally different mes are ‘A Virgin’s Letter to Her First’ and ‘Dear 19 Year Old Me’ . I was reading the former one when it hit me that I’ve come a long way. What I want to do now is to figure my religion out. I want to know what I have faith in as a person. I’m not atheist and I wouldn’t really like to be called a Christian. I normally tell people I’m not religious anymore but I don’t really know. It’s kind of confusing. I want to know what my spiritual beliefs are as a person and then I think I would have crossed another hurdle in my life.
Academically, I still have a long way to go and to start, I need motivation. I’m beginning to gain renewed interest in the study of Law and I guess that’s a good thing. I know I will still make my parents proud on Graduation Day even though I don’t know how. I can do this with God by my side for that I’m sure about. My blog is almost two years old and it has influenced me a lot. My blog has played a huge part in my change and growth and that is something I can’t deny. I’m happy I started blogging somewhere in August 2016.
This post is basically me being happy about where I’ve gotten to over this short period of time.
Let me leave a little motivation:
Never let the difficult times get to you. Never let what people do get to you. It sucks alright but that’s just how it is. No one has a cheat code to life, behind every happy face is a dark space. Keep crying and working towards a better you everyday. (And yeah, I mean crying because all life does is throw lemons at you whilst blessing you with some rays of sunshine)
