The only career I have ever wanted to have was to be a writer; turns out it’s a lot harder than I imagined

I wound up in the education field, which I also love, but there is still nothing that compares to the bliss of sitting down and getting lost in my own thoughts. So this blog is my attempt at keeping myself accountable as well as sharing all the crazy beautiful madness that goes on in my head.

Whenever we fulfill a goal, value comes from two outcomes: changes (usually gains) in resources and satisfaction

Keywords: about writing , my writing , thoughts and reflections , goals , outcomes , writing

Gains in resources don’t have to be monetary — they can be in terms of knowledge and experience. Satisfaction comes from completing goals, and the feeling of that satisfaction differs by where it comes from. The deepest satisfaction comes from satisfying higher-order goals, goals that come from higher values like beauty, truth, and accomplishment.

I want confidence in what I’m doing

Keywords: writing

I’ve decided to expect the worst. I know! Isn’t that funny?! But you know it’s my tendency. The rawest form of my work will always have a special place in my heart. If that makes sense. In the end, as much as I want to be proud, I am uneducated in this field. The fact that I have been writing for years doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m skilled or correct in the minds of the readers. That’s really what I’ve been working with all this time.

I think sometimes I get too caught up about what others reading (specially those of you that know me) think of me and what you think of my posts, and I end up not really writing about what I want

Keywords: advice , anxiety , blog , blogging , depression , personal , writing

I am going to start writing whatever I want, as if no one is actually going to read this, and see if I am able to communicate better what I think is going on in my life, what my real true feelings are.

I found out I wanted to write a book about life, or there would be no book at all

Keywords: {0}

Why about life? Because everything in life is so awful and beautiful. Every little thing created on this world is so pretty, every little thing so atrocious. Because nothing seems to exist in life isolated from another thing. Can you believe it, can you personally reconcile it? I cannot, for sure. I cannot believe the webs of relationships between the most beautiful and horrid things in life, which is why I have always wanted to write about them. Can this ever happen, on a blog? I DON’T KNOW! @_@ inshallah I hope so.

My whole being is centered on sharing and being useful

Keywords: Inspiration , Personal Development , Writing , Courage , effortless , entrepreneur magazine , essentialism , Fear , Greg McKeown , Jason Feifer , Nick Wolny , templates , thinking , What if this could be easy

I want others to read what I write or interact with me in the courses I teach and feel they have gained value or insight or seen things from a different point of view. Of course, if they are also entertained, all the better! But entertainment is not the primary goal.
