Passion

Spring

Sabra Gilbert2 Comments
      So Spring is a time of decluttering. Of getting rid of the things that aren't needed or that we don't really want. It's a time when new things come into exsistance. For fresh starts. For babies of all kinds.

      It's a time to reevaluate how you think your life is going at the time. Look at the resolutions that you set just a few months ago, and reset your course for them. Like this blog. I want to make this blog a focus and a priority in my life because I love to write.

       I can't promise that everything I write is going to be gold.

       I will promise that I'm going to be trying to post at least twice a week, if not more.

       I can't promise that my branding is going to be perfect.

       I will promise that I'm going to be actually trying to create a brand.

       I can't promise that I'll pay for a professional design.

       I will promise that I'll make sure this place isn't an eye-sore.


      And I'm going to be honest. I don't know if I'm even making these promises for you, the reader. I think I am making these promises to myself. I don't have to be perfect in what I'm doing, I just have to be focused and trim what isn't neccessary. And what isn't necessary is constantly worrying about the readers and what you want. You aren't going to get anything of true value or use to you unless I'm actually passionate or care for the things that I talk about and share with you.

       I think for a while, when I was doing anything for this blog, I was trying to do it to boost numbers and to try to turn this blog into a way to gain a little extra income while in college, but the way I was trying to do things just isn't working for me in the ways of I'm loosing interest, nothing is actually growing, and nothing of what I want is actually being accomplished.

       So here is to regaining passion, regaining purpose, and for trying to make all of the peices fall together.


Life Shouldn't Be A Checklist

Sabra GilbertComment




Junior year has been crazy.
Like wanna just curl up in bed, sleep for the next 3 semesters, crazy.

When your life starts to boil down to an overflowing checklist that grows faster than anything can get done on it, thats extremely bad.

And what are the things that get left on the checklist WAAAYYY longer than they should.

Cleaning.
Devotional Time.
Dates with Simeon.
Blogging.
Wedding Planning.
Basically, anything I actually enjoy doing with my time.

Luckily, next semester I'm only going to be taking 16 credits instead of 17, which doesn't sound like a whole lot, but I don't plan on taking as many high caliber classes.
Two of my classes, I expect to be quite fun!

With debate season starting next weekend, I also hope that I can spend a little bit more time being able to blog as Simeon will be gone most weekends for the next 3 to 4 months.
Did you know that I missed my own Blog-iversary on Thursday?
Yep, as of October 31st, I have been blogging on this little space for a year.
Now one thing I have been working on for 2ish months, is this whole new redesign completely done by muah!
I"m getting my new editorial calender all set up with some big goals for this space and Becoming A Gilbert.

I want to jump back into being passionate about something.
I want my room to be spotless
I want my homework done, so I can spend a night a week just being with Simeon and doing something crazy and fun.
