As I mentioned in my Instastories sometime last week, I hope to be more regular with my blog posts on the website. Towards the end of last year in an effort to grow my Insta account, I was soley concentering on it alone (Instagram account), while neglecting my website. It is true that one probably gets more visibility and engagement on Instagram, but as I have been growing as a blogger I have realized how valuable this platform is to me, to be able to voice my thoughts, my opinions and my impressions. And every since Insta stories have become active, many of you are in constant interaction with me which makes me feel alive and wanting to keep doing what I am doing.
The thing is, I am a people’s person. Being around people, talking to them and being a part of a something, makes me happy. So even as you read this, you have to know: interaction with you, contributing to your life whether it’s in as simple a form as a mundane read for the time you are waiting in some line - keeps me fulfilled. I am a mom, a busy mom of 2 active kids and they bring me all the purpose and joy in the world. I however have also realized that I needed something more than just being a mom to keep me going and from not being bored out of my skull. I am a hands on mom and love raising my boys, but I also needed something to keep ‘me’, the person I was before being a wife or mom, the person I was, am and always will, alive.
Hence in order to connect with my audience on a more personal level and on a regular basis, apart from outfit posts and product reviews, I have decided to do a weekly focus every week of the year. That way I am committed to posting this weekly post irrespective of my schedules, travel etc. I may have my off weeks and when I am not able to post then, I hope to catch up in the weeks after.
A lot of you have been asking me to post things about getting to know me better. So I have decided that every week I will talk something about myself during the weekly focus. I will also try and talk about my workout schedules or goals for the week.
Week 20 of 2017.
Get to know me better:
I will be picking these questions from a couple of ‘get to know me’ websites and off course the questions you guys write to me about. It is not easy to open up and write things about yourself, but I am going to try.
Q) What personality trait do I value the most in me and what do you dislike the most?
I think I value my faith and positive attitude towards life the most. Don’t get me wrong, I do have a lot of off days. But when I feel low or dejected, it’s my faith that keeps me going. Hope is a beautiful feeling to have and a great trait to hold onto. Its magical in that, it keeps a person optimistic, enthusiastic and courageous for what the future holds.
And the one personality trait I hate about myself is the fact that I allow myself to get hurt by people too fast. Over the years, with life experiences I am learning to be stronger and be less sensitive or rather less caring but it’s hard.
Ever since I am back from holiday, it’s been over 8 days, I haven’t stepped into the gym. I love the gym, it’s my happy place. Even then I haven’t been back since I have had a tonne of things to get done at home. I however plan to get back today starting with about half hour.
I hope to squeeze two workouts in before I travel again on Wednesday. On both days I will be doing a full body workout including compound exercises likes squats, deadlifts and chin ups.
I am not a writer per say, however I do enjoy ‘talking' to all of you though my blog. So do write to me and let me know what other things you would like to hear from me.
