Aren't we as blogger feels the same way MOST times? Not entirely satisfied with what we possess? I admit when I started blogging, I was like Night. I never really liked myself or what I have thus far. I felt like I wasn't going anywhere or that I wasn't accomplishing much. My blogging life was just plain boring and nonexistent. I almost gave up.
I wanted so much to be like Day! So full of fun and excitement and teeming with life! Just like the bloggers who are unofficially called "big". The ones who are always on the spotlight, or would it rather be politically correct to say "bloglight"? Yes, them bloggers. The ones who gets all the attention and wonderful opportunities. I wanted so much to be like them, it hurts just thinking about it. And hurts more that I didn't know how to go about being like them!
Just like Day and Night, I, too began to question and compare myself to other bloggers. What do these bloggers have that I don't have? What are they doing that I'm not doing? Why are they getting great things and I don't? The whys were endless!
Same questions that most bloggers I've encountered asked of themselves! Born out of our inadequacies and the fear of unknown. If there's one thing I realized, it is that everything must start from the beginning to get to the end. To get to a pinnacle, you have to keep climbing upwards.
Blogging is so much like that.
And just like what Day and Night discovered, at the end of the day, Night became day and Day became night... I know someday I, too can be big(ger)... You too CAN be a big blogger!
If you are at a crossroad of questioning yourself and wanting so bad to be someone else, STOP. Instead, work hard at honing who you are and your skills! Who knows, one day you may be bigger than the one you wish to be. As for me, I'll keep on blogging and let it lead me to new and greater heights! I'm getting there...slowly but surely.
So, do you still want to be someone else? Remember, If you work hard at it, one day YOU WILL BE THAT someone else! Stay Zen my friend.
