100 Days of Daily Blogging
Who would have thought. 100 days ago I decided to challenge myself and have some fun. I decided that I was going to start a blog and upload on a daily basis for one full year. But it wasn’t going to be just any ordinary blog. I was going to focus solely on helping people grow in life. I wanted to focus on motivation, inspiration, and positivity. Well, I still have 265 more days to go until I fulfill my goal, but I can honestly say that it has been one of the best experiences of my life. It is a milestone that I am grateful for, and it is a milestone that I am proud to have accomplished. Here is what I have learned from 100 days of daily blogging.
How It Happened
You know, it really just kind of happened. After growing tired of spending my life in a negative state of mind, I wanted to challenge myself. I wanted to seek positivity, change my thinking, and help others in the process. Life isn’t meant to be lived around fear or anger. Life is meant to be enjoyed and lived for the beauty. This is what I was seeking. I wanted to release my emotions, challenge myself, and reflect on what I have learned in life.
Aside from the selfish reasonings, I decided to start blogging as a way to give back. Somehow, I was blessed enough to be given the strength to overcome depression, anxiety, and an eating disorder. Since I was blessed enough, I feel that it is my responsibility to give back. One of my main motivators for blogging is to inspire others and help others to find motivation, inspiration, and positivity in their own lives. If I can be happy with my life and help change the life of even just one other person, then I will see myself as successful.
What I Have Learned
- The biggest thing that I have learned from 100 days of daily blogging, is that I can truly accomplish anything that I set my mind to. I never thought that in a million years that I would be blogging on a daily basis. In fact, I just woke up one day, said I was going to do it, and here we are some three months later.
What I am trying to get at with this, is that if you are wanting to do something in life, just do it. Life is too short to sit around and wonder what would have happened if you would have done something differently in life. Whatever it is that you are wanting to do, just do it. If you don’t like it, move on to the next thing. But at least you can say that you tried.
- The second thing that I have learned from 100 days of daily blogging, is how to be independent. I am following my own dreams in life, and I am staying true to my personal beliefs. The days of needing to be accepted by others are over. If others like me for who I am, that is awesome. If others don’t like me, that is awesome as well. But I am not going to let the thoughts of others control my life.
Everyday that I blog, I am following my own dreams. I am trying to spread a message of encouragement to anyone that is facing hardships in life. It is something that is dear to me, and it is something that I am not going to stop pursuing. As long as I am doing right by myself and following my own dreams, I will be succeeding.
- The third thing that I have learned from 100 days of daily blogging, is how to be happy again. Throughout the course of bettering my life, I have realized to slow down, embrace all of the beauty that life has to offer, and to count my blessings. I have a God that loves me, a family that will always be right beside me, and friends that care about me. All of this makes me the luckiest person in the world.
The truth is, I have never been happier. I love the person that I am and the person that I am becoming. With that, I am beyond grateful for all of the blessings around me. When we learn to love ourselves and accept the world around us for all of the beauty that it holds, then we truly see how blessed and privileged we are for each day that we are alive. It makes life much more meaningful.
- The final thing that I have learned from 100 days of daily blogging, is how to believe in myself again. After years of battling negativity, depression, and the feeling of amounting to nothing, I can finally say that I am happy with my life. Not only am I happy, but I have finally established self-confidence, self-belief, and self-worth.
In the course of my life, I have never been more motivated to follow my dreams and create a legacy for myself. It is not going to be easy, but nothing worth having in life ever comes easy. With everything that I do, I have the belief in myself that I can achieve each and every one of my dreams. Seriously, I believe that I am going to turn each and every one of my dreams in life into a reality. If you don’t believe me, two things. One, thanks for the extra motivation. And two, just wait and see.
I have said it before and I will say it many times again, but blogging has changed my life. Especially 100 days of daily blogging. I think it is fair to say that it has officially become a habit. But not just any habit, a habit that is only improving my life. Each and every single day that I blog, I am becoming a happier person. I am following my dreams by wanting to inspire others, and I am creating a better life for myself. All because I woke up one day with an idea and just went with it.
So forget what people think about you, forget all of the negativity in life, and forget any sense of doubt. Whatever you are wanting to do in life, embrace the challenges and go after your dreams. Don’t spend a life wondering what could have been, just start doing. Once you start manifesting your dreams, you will never look back.
