I think therefore...I am...at least I hope to.
Why are we so hard on ourselves? They say that you are your own worst critique. The first half of this blog title was inspired by a quote I once saw. My remix to it is simply expressing how much I sometimes lack faith in myself. On and off the past couple of years I have been trying to re-resurrect my blog, youtube channels, and just getting back into the groove of being creative. Though I did do smaller projects, and try to keep the creative mojo going. I would hit long dry spells of creative blocks and hit many points of depression because I wasn’t able to create as much as I would like. I even went back and looked over some of the blogs that I had written, in addition to videos that I put up on Youtube. And of course I was pretty disappointed in myself, ideas that I had fell through or I wasn’t able to complete others ideas in the timely matter that I liked, due to personal issues going on in my life.
So I decided a break was necessary, to tell myself that it’s okay you're human! Stop forcing it and let it come to you. I also know that I was holding myself back. So finally, I’ve decided that it's finally time to come back, get into the groove, and forgive myself for my own failures. I’ve mentioned a few times through various social media channels, that I have been planning and reorganizing the way I would like to present my blogs. In which I have, my blogs will definitely be changing in looks and structure this year. In addition, I may post more than once a week as the year progresses. However I wanted to start this year, with writing a more personal blog. There is no impromptu idea for the week. Instead, I would like for everyone who reads this blog to do one thing for yourself: forgive yourself for something you failed at, pick yourself up, dust off, and go back at it again with a clear mind and heart. Sometimes you gotta start with baby steps again, before you take off to fly.
