Last week I’ve had a really tough time at work. Every possible aspect of my character has been put to the test. So as I sat at my desk thinking about how to get of the pit I came up with these 8 easy steps on how to live a more fulfilling life. When offering advice to people I always picture myself in their situation first. More importantly I relate to both sides of their stories to provide a solution. In this post I want to particularly address persons who are surrounded by negative people whether at work or otherwise.
When I started blogging in early November of 2016, the main reason was to fill the void of living alone. Sometimes I felt lonely, depressed, bored and a lot of other mixed emotions. In order to curb the situation I decided to adopt a new hobby that turned out to be blogging.
At first I was skeptical about putting myself out there in front of a bunch of people that I did not know. But as time went by I realized there were far more people in the world who Blog as a career. Realising that I wasn’t going to be alone on this new journey, it gave me a sense of hope.
Four months later, I began feeling overwhelmed about a lot of things, for instance:
having my blog look a particular way
selecting a niche
coming up with relevant topics that would interest readers and
There came a time when I had hit an all time low and took a break from it all. Re-prioritized my life and came up with the best tips for managing a blog part time. Every now and again I have to revisit this list to remind myself why I started blogging in the first place.
Here are some of the challenges I have faced over the past four months as a Blogger:
What’s life like without internet? Keeping reading to find out.
Friday after work I headed to the Mall to do a little retail therapy. Before leaving I made a quick stop at the supermarket to pick up some items. I arrived at home ten minutes later, put some clothes into the washer, packed the grocery items neatly into the cupboard, took a shower and made a quick dinner.
Usually I look at a movie or series on Netflix to set the mood for the weekend while enjoying bag of popcorn, my favourite snack.
So today we celebrate International Women’s Day. Recognized on March 8th of every year around the world in honour of women. This year’s theme happens to be #BeBoldForChange.
For those of you who are not sure why we mark this day I hope this post brings some clarity. As for the men who don’t think it is important, continue reading and maybe it will change your perspective.
Simply put, International Women’s Day celebrates the cultural, social, economic and political achievements of women. The day is marked around the world in the form of arts performances, talks, rallies, networking events, conferences and marches. In some countries it is officially a holiday while others treat the women as they would on Mother’s Day.
My alarm goes off between 5.45 and 6:00 a.m. and sometimes I have this really bad habit of checking notifications on my phone first thing as I open my eyes. After doing so I would say my prayer and spend some time in meditation, make my bed and brush my teeth. Then I would take a shower, comb my hair, put on makeup and dress for work.
Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, before leaving the house for work, I enjoy a glass of my favourite banana raspberry smoothie. Although not practical every day, I try my best.
I have had such an amazing weekend it was only fair that I shared that with you guys.
But before I get to that, this week has been a really tough and stressful time for me. Both professionally and personally.
Blogging had taken a toll on me. I have suddenly hit an all time lower traffic than usual and that led me to feeling a bit depressed and frustrated.
Despite efforts to remedy the situation, it still didn’t improve. So I asked some other Bloggers for advice on how they cope during down time. The best response I got was to take a break and that is exactly what I did.
