An Update on my Goals

The end of another month. I can’t believe tomorrow we are starting March of 2018. I am officially six months into this adventure in writing my blog. It has been another good month to be sure, and I am excited as always for the next best thing on The Bipolar Writer blog.

I never do things in the right way. What I mean by that is sometimes I don’t take things slow. An example of this is The Bipolar Writer blog. I thought when the year turned into 2018 that I had to write every blog post every day. I have done that, but it has been at the expense of my mental health. I am getting better at not being such a perfectionist, but my life has always been all or nothing. I mention this because I am learning.

One of my small goals, although it is far from small, is to learn the beautiful Korean language. It’s been a struggle because I want to learn everything there is to the language in a single day. So far I have learned some things but with my busy schedule I haven’t dedicated the time that I want. I have lacked real balance in my life in February between what I need to do and working on my mental health. I know moving forward I need to find time for the little things. The things that make life worth living, like hobbies that could mean happiness in my life.

So my goal of March 2018 is to start living. I want to get into photography. Not to make living, I want to do it just for me. I still need a camera but thats just the details. I want a good camera and I think I am leaning towards a really good one. I never do anything that makes me happy. I know learning Korean and taking up photography is something that will make me happy. I can leave my house for time and go out in nature. Somthing I never get to do.

I have been so focused on my blog, my memoir, my many projects, and my goals that it seems again that life is passing me by. I can’t let that happen. I have gone too far in this journey to let life pass me by. I am nearing the end of one journey which means the world to me. I have my last two semesters of my bachelor’s degree left and it feels so good to be moving forward.

With that said, I am going to take a few days off from blogging. Today I worked on my freelance project and I my social anxiety was high. I got through the anxiety, and I am taking some time off. I will get on as a reader only over the next few days as I look to better my mental health. That is so important in this life.

So here is to the next best thing.

Upgrading The Bipolar Writer Blog to Business

I am looking to expand The Bipolar Writer blog to new territories that include having the blog sell books for other artists (if I can make everything work). I am also looking to sell my own book here on my blog. I hate asking for donations but I have to do what I can.

      1. They are good, very thorough. I know your book will be a hit, I absolutely will be purchasing… even if you need to borrow cash, GO FOR IT! ~Kim (but not from me, I’m still broke! HAHA)

  1. It’s good, that you’re, setting all these goals for yourself, and it sounds like, you’re experiencing the higher parts of your bipolar disorder (the manic portion???), and, you want to, keep in this state of mind and being for a long time, but, there’s, just no way, because what goes up, must come back down, but, keeping the focus on blogging might just do the trick, as a sort of a “breaking your fall” from the highs you’d experienced so far, that, is from my own experiences of my own bipoloar II disorder…

    1. It could be that I am manic right now. It’s a real possibility. If it is I need to be ready for the inevitable crash. I am have never been great at recognizing my manic side.

  2. Good for you that you’re making more time for yourself! Self care is such an important thing, and taking up hobbies is too! Especially if you’ve lost interest in them previously.. Something I’m currently working on too! Best of luck with your goals! As for photography, I have a Canon camera, Canon rebel mini I believe it is, and I love it! It would be a good brand for you to look into I think! 🙂

  3. Happy to hear you’re picking up hobbies just for you that will bring you joy. You deserve happiness 🙂 Great job recognizing imbalance and taking the steps to balance it!
