I have been in a little funk lately with my blog. Lately, I find myself getting easily overwhelmed with the maintenance of this blog and posting on social media. I am not having fun with it. Really it stemmed from not knowing what to post on social media being a personal growth blog. So I ended up choosing a new theme and redoing my homepage here. Still had nothing to do with what I should post on social media but it gave me the idea. I ended up changing my tagline from “helping you grow to get the life you want”. To something about me, that I really needed to do “figuring out who I am as an adult“.
Hopefully, this makes sense… It does to me “kinda”!
Let’s get real
I think this new tagline is really what this blog is about. I am writing all these posts every week because I think it’s what I should be doing. What ends up happening though is I make myself overwhelmed. When I get overwhelmed I don’t want to do anything. That is not productive nor motivational… something I want to be in my life. Everyday!
Because of this thought process, I decided that because I am on a personal growth journey. I no longer want to post things “you should” be doing. I want to write about my experiences. How I grew up and what I have been through. Especially sharing what I am doing to help me grow as a person. I have been spending a lot of time questioning myself and my decisions. So why not start a series about figuring out who I am.
Figuring out who I am
I have talked about this before in a different post about being unsure if I actually know who I am. It’s possible that everything in my life… is just a byproduct of someone else telling me I “should” or “shouldn’t” like it. I want to share a lot of what has happened or what is happening in my life. I need to spend my time figuring out who I am especially as an adult.
So from here on out every week, I will be talking about the things I am doing to better myself. Which I know sounds like what I am already doing. Which is true… Everything I write about is something I am doing. But I am writing it as if “YOU SHOULD” be doing it too. I don’t solve any problems or give my real-life experiences. I should have been doing that from the beginning. What I am writing on here should be matching up with what I am posting on social media.
This is my brain everyday!
This is just me trying to streamline the process. Definitely making it easier for me to stay consistent and lessen the burden of being overwhelmed. I get overwhelmed with all the things “I THINK” I should be doing as a blogger. Then I basically spend days, weeks or months beating myself up for not being better.
Here is the plan
So here is the plan. I want to start using this blog as like a diary. We are going to get real and raw by talking about my childhood, being a teenager, an adult, my experiences, my dreams and what I am doing to become a better version of myself. Because I talked about doing shadow work, but never shared what I was working through.
In the next 2 weeks, I will be thinking of ideas to talk about, film for YouTube, Might even possibly restart my podcast up again… Then 2 weeks from now the new and improved Michele/Our Redonkulous Life is coming to spill all the tea. Because all I ever wanted for this blog was to inspire others. Maybe help people who might have or are in similar situations.
This is just a quick post I wrote to explain what is happening. I have one more “fluff” piece coming out because I wrote it before I went on vacation. It was to actually be posted today, but I chose to post this instead. So mark your calendars. APRIL 30, 2021 is when the shit show goes live. But for PG’s sake, I am calling it figuring out who I am as an adult.
