Today’s post will be about why I chose to start blogging.
I had thought of blogging for quite sometime, but I wasn’t sure about what I would blog about, but I decided I’d start a blog anyway. Around February I started exploring a little more, I started travelling a little more, sometimes with a group of friends but most times on my own.
To most people that’s pretty standard, but I’ve been a pretty closed up person for a long time, the idea of stepping out of my routine of university classes and home terrified me, sent me into a panic, and for some reason made me feel incredibly guilty. But then I read a quote which I believe is by Muhammad Ali:
“A man who views the world at 50 the same way he did at 20, will have wasted 30 years of his life.”
That quote made me realize that if I continue to stick to routine I’ll be the person that will have wasted those years of my life. Routine is definitely comfortable but if there’s anything I’ve learnt this year it’s that exploring and trying new things, even the smallest of things really do bring happiness.
The goal of starting this blog was to share my experiences with others and hopefully inspire people to go out and step out of their routine.
I invite you to view the universe with me.
