Hello everyone welcome back to my blog! It feels like ages since I’ve written a new post but in reality it’s only been a week or so. In full transparency, my goal is to post twice a week on here but then life happens, and I’m not ahead on writing, so yeah. Anyways, this week has been crazy because my summer ended and school started again for me. For those of you that don’t know, I’m currently pursuing my Masters Degree in Communication Studies (YAY). As I enter my second year, I am excited, nervous, scared, you name it, but I’m hanging in there and I feel like my brain is getting back to “school mode” again.
Anyways, for today’s blog post I wanted to talk about a lesson that has been recurring this whole week. I kid you not, this message has shown up in different, but similar ways more than 3 times this past week so naturally I have to share it.
For those of you that don’t know (yet) I am an avid YouTube watcher. I honestly watch it more than Netflix or anything else ha ha. So, I was watching a new YouTuber I recently discovered. Her name is Cathrin Manning and she talked about how people sometimes say that they feel they’ve done everything they can to grow on social media (whether it be on Instagram, YouTube, Blogging, Pinterest, you name it), and how she feels that thinking that way is a closed way of thinking- because there is always room for improvement.
I, myself, have fallen victim to this train of thought and when Cathrin mentioned this in her recent video (Click here to watch) it was such a good reminder and I had my Ah-Ha moment. The message showed up again on Tuesday and then again yesterday on Wednesday and it got me thinking.
To be honest, starting school again hasn’t been easy for me because it means that I have to divide my time more and I have less time to do what I love and want to pursue, which is my blogging journey so, when I read this and it showed up again and again it was like a message for me to think that there is always room to improve in all areas of my life, including school.
Now I’m actually excited to get back to school, and the classes that I’m taking are actually interesting to me this time around (I’m taking a qualitative research methods class and an Instructional Communication class). So, since this message literally popped into my life 3 times this week I feel like it is my duty to share it with all of you. If you feel stuck in any shape, way or form just think there is always something you can do to improve or to do something. After talking to my classmates after not seeing them all summer I realized that the current world situation is affecting us all and finding motivation is literally hard for all of us, regardless of what our personal situation is so, when I heard this message I thought that it was a great opportunity to always look forward and see how you can improve in any given area in your life. This could be at work, with your workouts, school or any hobby you may have. Now that I’m actually writing it down, I feel that the overall message is one of hope. There’s hope out there and we can all improve and do better.
I hope to come back with a new blog soon- hopefully Monday of next week so, definitely stay tuned for that.
