A Shift Toward Ourselves

Hello Lovelies,

It’s a new day.

A fresh year.

It’s time for new beginnings. Goals. Dreams.

We all tend to live in a circular motion, like a luggage conveyor belt, waking to the same tasks, going through routine motions until bedtime, and then waking again…

Maybe this is the year to re-evaluate your life. Figure out what’s important. Think about what’s best for you physically, mentally, and/or spiritually. Set your sights on a dream or goal you’ve put on the back burner.

With the way the world is today, I believe it’s important for everyone to take a step back and turn the focus onto himself or herself. There is so much noise about what others are doing, and too many people lose their own paths—forget what they originally inspired to do.

What’s your purpose? What goals do you want to achieve in life? What are your dreams?

Share it with us in the comments below regarding what you would like to do. It doesn’t matter how big or small, drastic or realistic the goal or dream. What matters is making it a reality.

When I was young, my single mother took care of the essentials, but if I wanted something, such as a pair of Guess jeans, I had to pay for them myself. For years, I waited until I had enough money to buy something I wanted. So when I got older, my focus was on making a lot of money to avoid the wait.

Over time, my focus, like everyone else’s focus, shifted to other meaningful things.

This might be your time.

Time to return to school. Time to write a book. Time to dabble in poetry. Time for a deeper spiritual connection. Time to exercise more. Time to learn how to cook or cook more. Time to travel. Time to find a healthy way of life.

Whatever you’ve wanted to do, why not try making that ‘want’ a reality?

This year, I plan to share some of the things I started focusing on, tips about writing, traveling, cooking, expat life, along with posting some of my own works, travels, and cooking experiences. I hope my posts might encourage or help someone take that first step in the right direction.

Sometimes we want to achieve a goal or dream but don’t know how to get started. Sharing our visions brings awareness to others, and maybe someone can help you achieve your vision.

So let’s reach out and share our goals, dreams, and experiences. Let’s focus on ourselves for a change. We are worth it.

New Beginnings and Aspirations,
