This week kind of started on a bad note for me. I experienced my first major blogging failure. This is what happened:
I had the perfect post all planned out for the blog. All I needed to do was take some pictures this weekend and for several reasons, it fell through.
Even though I have always had some difficulty with pictures, I didn’t expect it to happen now. Why? I planned ahead and did everything right.
I was very disappointed because that would mean I’d have to move all my posts and my social media (especially instagram) around. This is because I tend to schedule and plan everything ahead.
I felt so depressed I said I wasn’t going to post anything this week. I thought after all how many people are reading my blog anyway, nobody will know.
Then I thought “YOU WILL KNOW”
It’s true I would know and I would feel it even if no one else did. Several bloggers write about their struggles and the various ways they have encountered failure.
I thought ‘well I will handle it when my turn comes’, but the thing is it’s hard, thats why it’s called a struggle. I felt crushed and just very ‘bleech’, I don’t even think that’s a word.
As I am typing this, I feel better, not great because, I mean I would still love for things to have gone smoothly.
I smiling a bit because I am blogging and it makes me happy.
I am smiling a bit because I know I am thinking up ideas to make that post happen.
I am smiling a lot because I know that I am going to have a post up today.
I am smiling because in small victories like this, I reaffirm my dedication and will to achieve something extraordinary.
So guys my advice to you – even though this is not my forte- is PUSH THROUGH.
Bad and unexpected things are going to happen but if you just keep moving, it gets better.
