I posted a few days ago about my conundrum about combining my blogs. I have a few ideas mulling wildly around in my head and I would like to thank everyone who replied – you all gave such thoughtful & considerate responses. I love the blogging community!
Of course, once you start thinking about things in the long term for one area of your life, it spreads to other areas of your life. On the weekend we were out for a little bit of a drive in our local area & I was trying to talk about all the variants of things that had happened in the past few weeks (online and offline) and random things that I had thought of in the past few weeks. My mind was overflowing.
There is this need we have to classify who we are. To define your lifestyle. And I think personal branding helps to both encompass and avoid that. When you are your name then you don’t need to add that dinner party descriptor on afterwards with your job title.
What I want doesn’t fit the boundaries of what you’re “allowed” or “supposed” to have/want. There, I said it. My best analogy of this is that you’re “supposed” to want the comfy house OR the travel lifestyle. Well, I’ve always wanted both. I’m not a sell-everything-go-around-the-world person, nor would I say that I hate the comforts of home. I would love a house with lots of spaces to work and play; I want a big studio-style space of my own.
I also doubt I’m the only person who feels this way, but we have no way to label ourselves to find others like us! The irony is killing me right about now. I guess when you’re considering your wants and needs (and how you’ll get there), it’s less important to have a name for it and more important to know what it looks and feels like.
Do you ever feel like you don’t fit in the “supposed to” areas?
