What to Expect in 2022
If you read any of my reviews of 2021, we can all come to a consensus that I was a chaotic mess.
It’s okay, you can say it, I’ve been like that my whole life; fluctuating on the line graph of insanity. I’m thankful, though, to have ended [at least] the last few days of 2021 on a note of hope. I feel as though when I have my mind straight, everything else seems to fall into a clearer and more vivid perspective. I don’t know where I’d be without psychology, possibly washing away the constant noise that is my mind with booze. Since psychology, I merely have a cup of coffee and water next to me, excited and ready for 2022 in the best way!
What to Expect in 2022 (From Me and My Blog)
- Since my obvious downward spiral, it showed in every aspect of my life, that including my blog. Maybe it wasn’t as obvious to you as it now is to me, but I truly plan to clean my blog up a bit to have it more organized with a clear message. For so long, I’d just write, which is fine, but with a blog that I wish to create something extensive with, I realized I didn’t have a clear message of what I stood for. If you go to my profile, you will see a cassette tape I randomly drew the other day with my name on it, before I had a butterfly; neither of which tell you much about what you will be getting into if you engage with my posts. I had to be honest with myself… “Vanessa, no one gives a damn what your name means in Greek or that you think cassette tapes are cute.” I’ve been trying to create something more authentic to my blog topics over the past couple days, but I’ll be honest, it may take some time.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
2022, I am beyond ready for all that you have in store for me, let’s do this!
