I was gone for a very long time. I have stopped writing and I am not sure why. It is so easy to express oneself in Instagram. Photos, words, and then just post! You can check me out in Instagram (@khristinegiron).
But here I am. I am back. Maybe expressing oneself in words would be too much in Instagram or in any other social media. I am glad I have this site.
I have been busy at home. I am a stay-at-home, full-time mommy and wife. During my spare time, I am usually doing either of these two: Dragging myself to run on the treadmill or having a relaxing moment playing my flute. If I go back to writing this will be my third option.
I am actually playing my flute when a thought came to mind. It had something to do with a remark said to me a while ago.
It doesn’t really matter what others think or say. Others can also mean people who are close to you. Do what makes you happy. Pursue your passion. For instance, if my passion is to write or to play the flute, it should not matter if the people I know believe in me or not. What should matter is that I love what I do and it makes me happy. One should not be discouraged by others’ opinions. This is my life. I will live my life the way I want it!
Have a great day! I miss my friends here in WordPress. Hopefully I”ll be more visible.
I have always wanted to write, but could not find a time. There are so many reasons why I am hindered from doing so. First, I am hesitant since I did not get a formal training in writing. I am not sure if I can. I do not know what to write or how to begin. But inside of me, I have always felt the need to do so, and the satisfaction it brings. I do not know if my passion lies in here. So I have to find out. Since I was a child I have been fond of keeping a little diary or journal. I think writing is a part of me. It has helped me survive and appreciate my life. I just do not know where this blogging will lead me. I believe writing will help with self expression, introspection, and soul searching.
My second reason for the delay to write is that I am always busy with everyday routine. I have been a stay at home mother since November 2010, and I have focused myself on my children, the home, the family. I am actually writing now while my little one is taking a nap! I used to have a career, but after having children, I chose a different path. I say that from my personal experience, being a full time mother is more rewarding and challenging in different ways. I am not saying this is true for other people. We are all different. And I am speaking for myself. With all the changes, in the midst of the daily routine, sometimes I get the feeling that I have lost something. I am not regretting any of my choice and it is nobody’s fault. I just believe that there comes a point when you start to search for your passion. Right now I am reading a book entitled “I am that girl” by Alexis Jones. It says that “Clues to your passion are always around you….You’ll only find your passion if you search and fight to discover it.”
I hope this blogging will help me find my passion and realize something beautiful. I hope I can also inspire other people and learn from them as well. We are all here for a purpose, definitely we can learn from each others’ experiences.
