This last week has been a sudden beam of happiness! I’ve welcomed it with a warm hug, the air is crisp and I cannot wait for December because it brings abundant snuggles, hot chocolate, presents and Christmas. The next couple of months are like a big sparkling bottle of champagne and I cannot wait to pop it open and savour it before the sparkles vanish!And oh if you’ve returned to my blog to read this post, thank you, it means a lot X
So about 9 and a half months ago, that time of the year when every person resolves to either lose weight or gain, or go to the gym more, eat healthy, do yoga or just something, I decided to do one too!
I decided to approach ‘consistency‘ like never before! I like change, no, actually I love it,almost too passionately, I get bored too soon and likes turn into things of the past sooner than they should, I sometimes try to justify it by a casual remark of ‘life needs to move on, on to something new’ the truth is it’s hard for me to remain faithful to a hobby or task for a very long time, so this whole idea of ‘consistency’, it wasn’t going to be easy but had to be pursued nonetheless!
I started off with a lot of focus on running, fortunately running for me is like Newton’s 3rd law of force, the more focus I give it, the more ability to focus it gives me back! I trained consistently, weekend after weekend, clocking miles like they were going into my savings account! I successfully finished a lot of races including my first ultra marathon of 70 miles and I must admit for a person like me who does zero sport, it was a big achievement.
I reminded myself that it was now time to roll on to something else, something equally exciting; at this time my workload spun around and shot off like a rocket and for months I only ‘found myself lost‘ under piles of emails and hours of work!Consistently persevering through it all!I did find light at the end of the tunnel ( although cliche but relevant) and I’m now looking forward to a year that’s racing itself to finish.
So next, I’d like to ‘consistently’ focus on my blog! I feel that with every post I come closer in thoughts to you! I may not be as fashionable as Avocado, Rose gold or white marble, that shot to fame through every blogger’s Instagram-perfect-pictures but I do secretly congratulate myself as WordPress shows me my blogs’ rising statistics! I am thrilled each time someone says they read and enjoyed my blog because it helps me mature into someone I really want to become!
I may occasionally go from a sprint to jog but I promise to you that I will be consistently consistent with this little connection we have through this space I call my blog.
