Hi guys and welcome to our place!
While I was on a hiatus a great thing just happened! Our place just crossed the 300 followers!!! If this is not a huge milestone I don’t know what will be! This is literally my reaction when I understood what had happened:
To be honest I wasn’t prepared for this in a bit! My idea for the 300 followers post was to show you my place… Like in real life. But, the house is still missing some decorative part and I want to show it only when everything is finished.
This way, after some thought I decided that what I’m going to for the 300 followers is a little motivating text. I know it’s not the most creative thing ever, but I think that it’s important and you will like it… Right? I’m going to address:
The Feeling of being stuck
This is a strange theme when I just passed the 300 followers, right? However, this is not only about blogging. In fact I’m going to address life in general.
Some of us (like myself) will feel it more times while other fewer. However, I think this is something that we all experience one moment or another. The feeling of being stuck and not being moving at all in life.
Now, I’m those kind of people who are a little impatient when it comes to get things that I want. This makes that things that I want that will take a lot of time and it’s more of a long-term kind of thing ends up making me to feel that I’m not evolving and not doing enough. In reality, I feel this all the time!
When it comes to blogging, the truth is that I want to start making a live out of this! I’ve said many times why and you can just read my “Why Do I Blog?” post to get the gist of it! So, even though I’m thrilled that I just passed the 300 followers mark, I know that it isn’t enough!
When it comes to my professional life, regarding blogging at the moment, I also feel that I’m light years from what I want to get myself into! Yeah, you can say that I’m still young – 25 years old here – but I just can’t feel that I’m not where I wanted to be! I’m not getting the pay check I wanted and although I’m the only guy in marketing at my company, which means that I’m basically the one in charge of the department, it still feels that I’m not doing/having the responsibilities that I wanted. Moreover, when it comes to my career, I just want to enter the gaming industry! But, in truth, I feel that I’m getting away from that path rather than getting closer.
Well, the rest is more or less what I thought it would be! I live with my boyfriend. All the things inside of our house were bought by us and I couldn’t really ask for a better responsibility. The life of my close ones are not where I wanted it to be, but let’s face it, that is something I really can’t do a thing – it’s not my life!
So, yeah… This kind of feeling that when it comes to my profession/job not being where I want to makes me a little sad and feeling I’m not good enough from time to time! It seems that I bust my ass off all the time and I don’t get much out of it…
Now that I explained my feelings (with the hope that you can relate) I’m starting my motivational speech xD
First of all, it’s ok to take time to do things! I’m going to tell you something, the things that have the best flavour are the ones that you need to work the most to get it!
Yes, it’s true that finish line is years afar! It is also true that any kind of content creator takes a load of time for you to finally be able to live out of it and do it your as your full-time job. Also… It is also true that most of the time it seems that you are walking really slowly towards it instead of running!
But, you know what? The truth is, you are taking the steps towards it! Yes, it takes time and there are days you would want to become a little faster. However, taking that time it will build your character and make everything better when you get there! The truth is, you need perseverance in life! Especially if you feel that you want to do something different and leave something in this world that will make people remember you.
Just know something, we are all in this together! Contrary to many industries, this one is a really kind one! We are a team and we cooperate with each other instead of competing, which just make everything worth it!
My suggestion for when you get those blue days where you don’t feel that good? Think about everything you have gained with anything you are doing and want to achieve!
In blogging I remember where I started off! With thoughts that I wouldn’t even have one person interested in what I wrote, let’s not even speak about 300! All the online friends I’ve made because of this! There are many out there and you all know who you are! Friendships that made the long-running collab you all know at this moment. The smiles I got from the people who read my stuff, or the ones that I helped with my story about anxiety… There are way too many things that if I just try to remember a small of it puts a smile in my face, in a good mood and to see how much I grew in the past few months.
When it comes to my career… Well, I wasn’t even sure if I would be able to get a job in digital marketing, so everything that comes from there just makes me feel that I’m growing up.
In fact, If I think about myself 6-7 months ago I can see that I DID walk a great distance! So, if you think that you are not moving on and that you are just stuck while doing your daily routine, remember yourself 6 months ago, 1 year ago… And you will see that many things have changed 🙂
Ok… Maybe this is not the best followers’ milestone out there, but I wanted to get this out there, especially for people who are starting up, or people who have seen their stats getting stuck for some time now! We are all a team and if you need any help, we are here for you!
Again, thank you so much for being part of this journey and, who know, maybe someday I’ll be able to do this a 8 hour work thing! If not, well, the experience itself already gave me a lot (and will) and changed me as a person. Blogging is just one of those things that I will never regret starting! I love you all ❤
See you Soon! 🙂
