Decisions to be made…

April 30, 2017

Apparently I’ve come to a fork in the road after reading ‘The Best Yes’ by Lysa TerKeurst. There’s quite a few things that I’ve learnt (sometimes the hard way) lately. But I know that this will lead to better things.

One thing I’ve learnt and can look back on, is that decisions are powerful – whatever decision you decide to make. All I know at this point in time is that my focus has changed. And my values have grown – up to a point where I need to detach myself in some areas to carry on growing and functioning.

And here’s where I pause; because the direction I want to go in – would require me to leave the safety of the corporate world – though for me to carry on functioning (and growing), I would NEED to leave the corporate world. There are some values that I’ve taken on that wouldn’t be supported by the corporate world.

But I’d have to do research to see how viable this direction is – and if there’s anything additional that I’m going to have to do to support myself. And if I do – that’s going to involve getting creative – which I most certainly don’t mind doing, but we all know that ideas and creativity take time to implement and bring to fruition. So the question remains – am I going to dive into this book blogging business?

Until next time,

Carmen.

Faith: Hope of better things to come?

October 15, 2016

I had an awesome start to the day. When I went on Twitter this morning, I was greeted by some great stats:

I haven’t ever had stats like this before. And this made me think: What if I was on Twitter consistently every day? Social media is a world of opportunities, and this was pointed out to me this morning.

It makes me really excited to start this book blogging journey that I’m on, though with my day job, I know I won’t be able to hold stats like this. One thing about me is that I don’t just like tweeting about anything, or retweeting for that matter. So planning tweets in advance is a little bit pointless at this stage.

Thankfully I am off this weekend from work, so it has given me the opportunity to really throw myself into blogging and social media in general. I just wish everyday could be like this, but while I have my day job, and even when I become self-employed, I know that I’m not going to feel this great about my blogging journey everyday.

But it’s still an encouraging start; and I hope that I steadily keep on going up like this, or at least keeping things as consistent as possible.

Until next time,
