Don’t contaminate the good times!

I want to try and post something inspirational every Monday but I don’t want to sound too preachy or have a holier than thou approach to it. Hopefully you’ll find something useful in these posts.

As a student, I hardly ever have time to do all the things that I want to do because I insist on dedicating a lot of time to my books. Every now and again someone will invite me somewhere and I’d turn them down or if I go, I’d panic at the prospect of “wasting” time that I could be dedicating to my books.

Yesterday I was at a pool party in Groenkloof, Pretoria and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I let go of my negative thoughts towards “having a good time over studying” for the majority of the day and I had the best time.

What I realise is that telling myself “you really shouldn’t be doing this” as I do something that I’m enjoying, doesn’t do me any good. From now on, I vow to enjoy the moment and to relish the time. After all, the brief “time out” will make me more effective later as I won’t be frustrated due to over studying (if there is such).

So my advice to you? Don’t contaminate the good times with worry. You’re not doing yourself any favour. Enjoy every moment!

Peace, love and all that good stuff!

    Yet it’s not a good idea to get carried away and make the blog about your family or outside interests. This also depends on your own personality, your niche and the audience you are targeting. If you’re having second thoughts about writing something in your blog that might be crossing the line, it’s best to err on the side of caution and leave it out.

    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There
    are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

    • Richmond_S

      I would say test your idea on a free platform and build an audience before going for paid options. When it comes to writing, I am also still learning. My best advice would be to make use of the grammar/spell check options on your computer. Nothing is as annoying as a spelling error on a well written blog post.
