Live a Little ~ Live a Lot

Have you ever experience a gap of wanting to do something and actually getting yourself to do it?

It has been a while since I’ve decided to write a blog and it took another 3 months for me to finally got around writing a new blog.  I was trying to figure out what my blog should be about, and it wasn’t until this past week that I got into lifestyle vlogs and blogs that I’ve decided on writing a lifestyle blog.  There are two more reasons to explain why I’ve always decided against writing a blog.

  1. I didn’t think that I am a good writer. Since English is my second language, I’ve always been extremely self-conscious when it comes to writing.  My concern was not being able to convey my thoughts properly and grammatical errors.
  2. I can never take nice pictures.  I am a believer of sharing the authentic experience, thus I didn’t want to feel inadequate if I can’t capture the things I want to share through pictures.

But you know, like learning a new instrument or play a sport, everything requires time and effort. One can’t expect to write better if they don’t write period and the same for taking pictures. Therefore, if I put more effort into blogging as a craft, I think I will be able to share meaningful contents that reflects who I am.  So if you are in a situation like me, and wanting to get started on something new, I would say that it takes time to become good at what you want to do.

Since I had a long day, I’ve decided to treat myself to some sweets at a bakery.  The pastries here are to die for, and they put me in a good mood to write the first blog.  I even tried my hands at taking pictures so I can share it with you.

  1. I was also hesitant to start blogging as I thought nobody would be interested in what I had to say. But it’s a year and a half later and I really enjoy it! Everyone is friendly and supports each other. Don’t put yourself down, go for it girl!x

  2. I love this post. Even as an English major, I am sometimes conscious about writing. It’s okay to feel that way and you are very bold for facing the insecurity head on!!! who knows how you might inspire someone who feels the same way you do! 💌 I loved this post and your pictures 🙂
