Concluding and Introducing

So today I want to have a nice little conclusion and recap of sorts of January. The theme was Change, as I stated in pretty much every post. I don’t know how effective my posts were as a whole but I hope it wasn’t too repetitive. Hopefully, the next month will have more options as to what the month revolves around so I can come up with fresh ideas basically every day. It’s hard having a monthly theme, especially when it’s a personal blog that you’re running by yourself. But I think it worked out smoothly because I love the organization that it brings and how I can brainstorm for ideas and not get too all over the place. The ideas work together and revolve around simply one main idea which I find extremely organized and I like to think it works.

With all that being out in the open, I’d like to introduce February. The month’s theme will be love. I’ll go into it in more detail in the official post to kick off the month. I wanted to bring it up because the month will be packed with ideas. It’s a broad word and leaves much room for interpretation. I’d love to hear your own personal meaning of love or anything you have for me that I might find useful. Although I have a lot of the month planned out, I’d love to do some additional posts if you have anything to add. Who says I have to post only once a day? I’d love posting more than that so be sure to contact me! I wrote this a day early just in case you’d like to send some ideas in now and I can add them in tomorrow’s post when I talk about the month’s plans. Maybe I’m getting a little too desperate for contributors so I’ll stop here but be sure to contact me if you have ANY ideas at all! They don’t even have to related to the theme, I’d just love to hear them.

This concludes the month of January! I hope you enjoyed this month and I hope you like reading my blog! Thank you for checking it out and listening to my rambles.

5 Reasons Not to Change Who You Are

1. There’s only one you

No one else in the world has your exact looks (well unless your a twin) or your personality. Your thoughts and beliefs aren’t exactly like everyone else’s, you have a combination of different beliefs that make you unique.

2. Changing for someone else isn’t worth it

How many times have you heard someone say something¬†along the lines of, “Never change who you are just because someone else has a problem with it,” that quote is still a relevant one. We can still learn a lesson or two from it.

3. Accept yourself

Accepting yourself is really the key to everything. You’re the one who’s stuck with yourself all the time so you have to do what you know makes you happy and a better person.

4. Your beliefs are your own

Only change them because you’re growing as a person, not due to the pressure of another person.

5. Don’t do it just because you want to fit in

Fitting in isn’t worth it, do what makes you happy. I can’t stress that enough.

I’ve spent a lot of time this month focusing on accepting yourself and not pleasing other people. The reason why I stress that so frequently is because it’s something I’ve personally dealt with many times, as I’ve kind of talked about in several other posts. I’ve learned that changing myself doesn’t make me any better, it just makes me feel worse about myself. So choose your actions wisely.
