Hello Beautiful People,
I created this blog as an outlet. A place where I could share whatever I want. And that’s exactly what it has become. But over the past month I’ve been MIA from my blog, which disappoints and saddens me, because blogging for me is not only a creative outlet, but also a time I use to relax and reflect.
When I went onto my blog today, I was in shock that the last blog post I wrote was over a month ago. This month has gone by so fast between classes, essays, tests, celebrating birthdays, going out with friends, watching way too much television and not doing nearly enough reflection. I try to think of the last time I was sitting at my desk or in my bed, blogging, reading a book or another blog, or just thinking in complete silence, and besides doing homework, I can’t even think of the last time I did one of those things. To some people, being so busy and not having a chance to stop is great, it keeps things interesting and you always have something to do. But personally, I believe every single person needs a little bit of time to themselves to reflect and just sit and do something like read a book, listen to some music, write in a journal, whatever it may be.
When I’m feeling a little bit lost, time to reflect is exactly what I need. But when I don’t even have a chance to stop and reflect, and i’m feeling lost, I get easily flustered and stressed out, which causes me to just push any problems I’m facing or things I need to get done aside. You need to give yourself time to just sit down and think sometimes. Maybe it’s once a day, a week or a month, but whenever it may be, you need this time more than you think.
Stress isn’t going to make you work harder, sleep better, have a better day or be in a better mood. Stress is physically and mentally draining on your body and is not something anyone should feel no matter what they’re going through. I admit, i’ve been feeling stressed lately, and when I feel stressed I push things aside or leaving things until the last minute. However, I take the time now to sit down and reflect and say to myself, I have the time and the energy to do all my work, I have all the time in the world, I just need to use it wisely.
I understand this blog post was full of scattered ideas, with some ideas repeated, but every once in a while its nice to just sit down and write whatever I want, and whether or not people read it, I still got a chance to express myself and do a little reflecting, especially on this past month that I’ve been gone.
I hope you all have a wonderful week and take some time to de-stress and reflect. I have a lot of blog posts planned and so hopefully my next one will be up a lot sooner than a month.
