“I also want to live the most vividly decorated temporary life that I can. I am going to spend as much time as I can creating delightful things out of my existence.”
– Elizabeth Gilbert
This quote made me think of my life as one huge blank canvas that’s spread across of a number of years. This canvas of mine, already being filled with 23 years of colourful memories and experiences, some not the most pleasant, but that’s okay too. Although, I’d be lying if I didn’t admit this got me a little upset thinking that I’d allowed so many people over the years to have control of my brush strokes and paint those unpleasant pictures that I, again, allowed.
A bit of history
This made me think deeply. I wanted to be the artist of my life, no one else, but me. And as much as I am grateful for the good times and the bad, I feel like I could be doing a hell of a lot better if I’d just do things the way I want it to be done and create my version of what ‘perfect’ means to me.
My life is my canvas, and I want to paint the picture that I want. Sure Picasso was great and everything, but honestly, it was never my vibe having things all upside down. Besides, I’m more of a Starry Night kinda girl.
I want to paint my canvas not only with amazing memories, experiences, people and surely new inevitable failures, but I thought that the main way I want to do this is through creating. Physically bringing things to life, and no, I don’t want babies… But I mean through my goals and aspirations in life.
I know for a fact that as long as I never care about what others think, and I never limit myself in creating absolutely anything I put my mind to, I can and will get it done.
This could be something as little as writing up one article a day, or starting to learn a new instrument or even for once knowing how to cook something other than noodles and French toast. These aren’t exactly my goals in life and there are many things I wish to achieve obviously, but there is so much more that I want to do and decorate my life with. Those little day to day wins and series of accomplishments are what I feel let’s us take control of our lives and make it into our own vivid masterpiece.
An Idea Comes To Life…
In case you haven’t noticed by now, Blogging Girl Daily is a result of that exact thinking. Over the years this idea to express my thoughts online grew into curiosity of how I could achieve just that, and from curiosity, the idea of actually bringing this website into existence came about in January 2018. I took a leap of faith, forked out a lot of money towards a growing vision I had, and went for it. I started this blog is because of my passion for self-improvement.
Coincidentally enough I decided to make the tagline of Blogging Girl Daily, Make Your Life a Masterpiece when I first created the website. I’ve developed the mentality of wanting my existence to be the most creative possible so I decided that Blogging Girl Daily would be one of the first strokes that brings my explosively, colorful artwork together one day.
The Purpose Behind This Piece
In making this blog it was an escape for me at first, and a result of confidence I finally got from writing through other small platforms, and seeing how well people from across the world had received it… I knew that through painting my own journey forward, I could also pave the way for someone else’s by sharing what I’ve learnt.
Just like how I changed my life around for the better, I know many people out there are willing so desperately to do the same and I encourage you to take every step necessary to go forward and bring your dream life into existence.
My articles and projects on this website are all aimed to make you become the best version of yourself possible. In doing so, that will guarantee you the best life possible.
This passion fueled website is aimed to provide young women with the tools necessary to push them forward into achieving the dream life they want. In saying that, it all begins with your mindset and willingness to grow. A lot of the lessons you will learn here and are to improve your self-development skills, which as previously seen with many women writing back to me, has changed their lives.
I can’t even begin to express how grateful and happy I am to see this, it was never my mission to use this platform as a tool to directly help others, but if it does, I’m more than willing to let this website serve you in order to create your very own masterpiece.
