Quote of the Week

“Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.”
-Heraclitus

A fun quote to start off the week. Simple yet so true. I often find my favorite quotes to be the simplest in words. Have a great week and thanks for reading!

How to Write a Blog

This is a question I don’t have the answer to. I’m new to blogging and am very much testing the waters, but I’m sure you already know that if you’ve read the “about me” page. But I think, like with many things in life, starting a blog is a leap of faith. You don’t know quite what you’re going to get out of it. Some do it for fame, others for fun, but at the end of the day it’s all one big roller coaster ride. Like a roller coaster, it’s an exhilarating experience. An escape from the everyday, a way to voice your thoughts free of restriction, free of judgment. So maybe I do have a little to say, so here’s a few tips that got me started (I’ve been blogging for a few years now, but my other blog was relatively simple).

1. Don’t be afraid to start:

If you have something you want to say, just write.

2. The nice thing about a blog is people choose to follow you:

You attract the audience, no need to worry about finding the right topics to talk about, just speak what’s on your mind, what interests you.

3. A blog is ever growing, it does not live in a vacuum:

Your first post may be lame, may get no likes, but that’s not a sign to give up, that’s a sign to keep trying.

4. Keep it positive:

I know I said write whatever, but try to put a positive spin on it, nobody wants to read about how depressing the world is. Optimists go far in this world.

5. Have fun:

If you’re not having fun while writing your blog, then what’s the point? It has no benefit for you and most likely will not have any benefit for those reading.

So there you have it, five tips for writing a blog. Have a great Tuesday and thanks for reading!

Quote of the week

“A man has to learn that he cannot command things, but that he can command himself; that he cannot coerce the wills of others, but that he can mold and master his own will: and things serve him who serves Truth; people seek guidance of him who is master of himself.”
– James Allen

This is such a truthful quote. The only certainty in life is ourselves. When we try to control the world around us we lose control and find ourselves plunged into the chaos we set about escaping from. Just be yourself and don’t fear others judgement of you. If you let others dictate how you act, then you truly will have never lived. Hope this quote was inspirational and I hope your weeks go well!

Quote of the Week

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.” – Confucius

I really love this quote as it is such a wise quote. When we reflect, we are not just looking at ourselves, we are also considering the world around us. We learn through imitation, we imitate those from our environment and those we want to be. Experience really is the bitterest of all, because through experience we learn what is wrong and our views of the world are shaped most through this. Happy Monday and have a great week!
