Joy and Peace Over Stress and Drain

I have yet to decide how I want to “journal” my 2017 year.

My top ideas are to have a one sentence journal of pen and paper. At least one sentence because sometimes I really can’t find time or I am a bit lazy to sit and write out a whole “entry.”

I also want to connect my personal journal to my blog. I initially had the idea of writing for at least 10 minutes a day to write out some blog posts but I’m not sure if I’d really keep up with that even though it does seem like such a small bit of time.

I need to think of something, a habit I CAN create without much strain in doing so to start with that will give me peace of mind. Rather than feeling guilty or stressed over a certain chunk of time I feel having it start small helps keep to it and just starting is usually the hard part. I’m sure some days I will only write one sentence while others I’ll be so inspired once I start I’ll have a whole blog post written out!

I want my blog to bring me joy not stress. I also want to document moments, emotions, thoughts, ideas, and so on. This I feel can be done by writing at least one sentence a day, that I can always turn back to when I’m in a different frame of mind or have more time to expand on. Sometimes I feel like when I write I’m someone else, because when I read back my words I can hardly comprehend that I wrote them.

Writing is interesting, it can be fun, and sometimes it really does bring peace to my mind and heart to just write it out! I decided to hop on Deb Runs Wednesday Word link-up today but I got carried away with goals as I’m sure a whole lot of us are with the current year nearing its end.

Today’s word is PEACE. I like this word at this time because as a new year comes I’ve often filled myself with anxiety and stress over what I’ve done, what I’ll do, and how much I should do still before the new year! I have to clean, sort, organize, etc. etc. etc. but this sucks out the fun of closing a year and welcoming a new one. I feel defeated faster than I can finish the countdown! So for the remaining days of 2016 I will have PEACE. I have plenty of time to work out my imperfections and make progress towards all my goals, and it is not set by any time, date, or person but ME.

Is there such a thing as too much blogging???

I know everyone has their own preferences, personalities, and so on. This is why I really don’t believe there is a single answer that is right or wrong. I thought I would still write out this post as I’ve decided to share my thoughts aloud here on my blog more often than not. I feel like writing things out has always helped me find some clarity in my thoughts and emotions. Even more fun if my posts I share can create dialogue with my readers, so please feel free to chime in!

What is a Blog Hop?

When I first had the thought of starting a blog I spent quite some time debating about actually doing it. I told myself more of all the reasons I shouldn’t start a blog rather than all the possibilities that it might present. I was anxious writing my About Me page, and even more hesitant when I finally signed up on WordPress.com. Continue reading

About Me

Hello! And welcome to my blog! My name is Caroline, a 22-year-old recent university graduate, passionate about animals, fitness, travel, DIY, smoothies, and pretending to know what I’m doing in the kitchen! I’d like to first thank you for sparing a moment of your time to give my blog a thought. ♥

I created this blog to not only sharpen my writing and develop some blogging skills (a said to be useful skill as a marketer) but mostly to share the things I’ve learned over my 22 years with all of you. My hope is that my words may help someone else make smarter decisions, get a good laugh, provide an interesting read, or just give you someone to relate to and not feel alone. Whether someone is younger, older, or the same age as you I feel as though there is always something we can learn and take from the differences we all have and live.

Feel free to engage with me in my future posts with comments, likes, or shares. I only ask that you do so with respect and understand that not everyone will feel and think the same. I have come to respect this truth in life and accept these differences even when I don’t agree, and I hope you will be able to do the same.

So enjoy and stay with me as I write out my years of past, present, and future. I apologize in advance for any of chaos in my writing or styling. After all I’m a learning blogger!

-Caroline
