I began this blog for a number of reasons. One of them was to share with you the things I love and make me happy: my hobbies, my favourite things, my writing, anything that motivates me and inspires me. That’s my blog’s main intention and aim. But I began this blog for another reason and that is to be my reminder that I’m in control of everything I do.
I choose what I will publish in my blog. Some ideas I have I start off planning to post it up, and then the next minute I would think: Hm, it doesn’t really suit my goal. I maintain my blog, design it the way I want, and the process of doing so was meant to also tell me that I am in control – especially my thoughts.
I get afraid and I fear a lot of things (I’m not just talking about creepy crawlies). I have the habit of thinking too much until it consumes me to my very bone, until I find myself drowning in something negative, something nobody should find themselves in. In other words, I’m being ruled by my fears. It’s easy to tell someone to swat away the fears and the negative thoughts. I don’t know about you, but for me it’s not that easy. Nowadays I’m better at it, but there was a time where I couldn’t control it.
I think that’s why I’m being pushy with the concept of ‘happiness’ and ‘positivity’. It’s one thing to be afraid and feel down, but it’s another to have negativity rule your life. I love writing because it gives me an escape, I love the sky because it’s so vast and open that it comforts me to know I can get out of my own little world if I just give it a try. I know that I’m not the only person out there who’s felt this way, which is why I’m using this blog for the following reason:
A Reminder – to me and possibly to you too (for yourself or for a friend) that if I can control my blog, I can control my thoughts. This blog is about the Little Novice and Happiness. This is my journey as a Little Novice who is still learning to keep learning and get better.
The little things that make me smile, like my favourite objects and my poems and my clouds, I want to share them with you in the hope that I could remind you too that as many sad days we’ve experienced in the past, we can also experience a lot of happy days. Life isn’t always about happiness and sunshine, but filled with negativity and frown days. But I see those days as a challenge. Whether you fail or pass your expectation, there’s always another day to try again.
I make it sound so easy, but I wish I could tell you changing your perspective is as easy as blinking. It takes some effort, but every little step is worth it. If you are feeling down, it’s okay if all you did was breathe today, but try something else tomorrow. Something you haven’t done that’ll help your situation get better if you are caught in a web.
