Why Am I Doing This?

I am a fairly private person. I hate writing. I am extremely busy. I have a lot of things to worry about and work on in my life. So, why am I doing this?

If you read my first blog post the other day, you learned a little more about me and why I am looking to make some changes in my life. Why I am going back to school and staring down the barrel of a new career, when I have so much going on in my own life. And while I was hopefully able to give some insight to that, the next question becomes, why am I blogging about it and sharing it on Instagram?

There are actually 2 reasons for my madness: to inspire myself and to inspire others. For myself, I have the type of personality that gets really into something and then once I miss a day or two of it, it falls at the wayside and I forget about it. Through all my trials and tribulations I have been going through I have tried a lot of things: journaling, talking to people, meditating, working out, etc. And while I have still done well with some of it, the journaling has nearly come to a halt, and I have not been as consistent with my meditating (even though I really enjoy it). But with this, my hope is that by sharing my thoughts and feelings, as well as discussing my journey as I trek through it, I will inspire myself to keep going, while also keeping myself accountable. I may not stay consistent and could go a few weeks between posts (especially as I find something worthy to discuss), but my hope is that I can do it to keep myself focused. School starts up in August, so I want to make sure I am ready to go and ready to take on the challenge of balancing work, school and my family.

Aside from keeping myself honest and motivated, I am also hoping to inspire others along the way. Again, as I had mentioned in my first blog post the other day, one of the issue I have and why i dislike the business world (at least the sector of it that I am in), is that I am not doing anything in my day-to-day, that is helping or benefiting anyone else in an overall positive light. Sure I am helping other companies streamline their systems or helping our company as well, but to me that is not as fulfilling as doing ro saying something that can truly inspire others. So while I am hoping to transition myself into a career that directly helps or benefits others, I am hoping this blog can help people along the way. Whether its an inspirational story I share, or a hard/frustrating time I am fighting through: my hope is that it helps someone else with a similar problem. Whether its about their work, marriage, parenting, or perhaps like me, they are working a job they are unhappy with and feel stuck. Hopefully they too can realize they are not stuck and can find their way out. Find their passion or their drive and work towards that.

Have a great day!

Please feel free to subscribe to my blog or follow me on Instagram. I hope to chronicle my journey in school and connect with like minded people. People who want to learn and grow and help others along the way.
