What to Expect in 2022

  1. As my profile, my topics were truly all over the place. I’d write about psychology for a few days, throw in something personal the next, randomly talk about skincare another, then I’d come back to psychology. For some time, this bothered me because I felt as if I didn’t stand for something, thus the birth of my idea for a new header, the cassette tape. I don’t know why that made sense to me, just…let’s move on. It took some time to truly dig deep and understand what I admired with my writing, but soon, when I have a polished header that isn’t arbitrary and cheesy, I will be able to share with you what I stand for and what wish to share with the world in my writing.
  2. The topics I will be sticking to (for now) will be psychology, self-help/growth, personal, a menial amount of skincare/food, and poetry. Sometime down the road (very soon), I will be incorporating travel extensively as well.
  3. As for myself, I’ve come to realize that I will not ever obtain a so called “clear mind.” The characteristics I possess will not allow it, which I will get into fairly soon. I merely wish to give attention to better thoughts. For too long, I’ve narrowed in my focus on fairly trivial, subpar, and self-destructive thoughts, and it showed. I know for a fact that I can be a better Vanessa in all ways, I have all the tools. I know it takes time and that there will be days of temptation to fall back into what is easy, but this year, I will not let them take me again. A few posts ago, I stated that I highly doubted anything life changing would happen before the new year, and that this was me hopefully foreshowing that something would show up at my doorstep and change my life in the best way. I’ve come to make this wish true as I realized that I am the change and I have the power to as well.
