"Live boldly. Push yourself. Don't settle."
Does anyone else find quotes help to motivate you? I know I do.
I found this one a while ago, [on Pinterest of course] and it's still sticks with me today, because it makes me strive for more. Finding something which motivates you is key to your individual success. And success doesn't have to mean becoming a millionaire by the time you reach your 25th birthday. Success can be anything. Success is achieving a goal you set, and reach. Like creating your first Instragram account. Writing a journal. Baking that cake you thought was impossible.
This photo of me was taken back in December 2016 and it's special to me because it marks a special moment; this is when I decided to push myself.
I knew I had to do something more besides working in a mediocre job. (I'm working on that part :)) And although I certainly don't have tonnes of spare time, I can always find an hour in the day to spend how I want to spend it. Whether that be scrolling through Instragram whilst watching TV or baking up a storm in the kitchen! You can make time, sort-of-speak.
Anyway, I decided to channel my passion for food into blogging and Instagramming.
With no clue of where to begin, I started playing around on Wix:
- I Signed up
- Bought my domain name
- Chose a template
- Started blogging
No frills, no bows, that was it.
Now, I am simply loving learning. Learning about how to use Google Analytics, learning how to use hashtags properly, learning how to connect my blog to my Instagram!...You can tell, I am no expert what-so-ever, hey. But I think that's what makes it so rewarding. Don't you?
So, if you are thinking of starting your own blog, give it a go. Just make sure you're doing it for you! And don't give up. Remember, these things take time.
