This is the first post, the scary one, the one that should explain everything.
I better start explaining then.
Who is writing?
I’m María, a Spanish teacher passionate about my profession, which makes me feel really lucky. I consider myself quite a happy person, positive and who enjoys the pleasures in life. But not always has been like that. There were a turning point in my life that led me to be writing this post today. A one year transition between a self conscious person, frustrated with herself, and a strong one, aware of the aspects of herself that need to be solved or improved. Took me one year to realize that “not doing” wasn’t a good choice, that realization and the luck of meeting inspiring people on the way put me where I am now.
Why am I writing?
Several reasons. The main one is that I embarked on a thoughtful journey of self improvement. As I said, there are things in my personality I’m not happy enough with. I know I can be better than this and I know I have much more to offer than what I transmit. I’m determined to reach the point where if someone ask me “what would you change of yourself?” I wouldn’t have much to say.
The purpose is similar to when you start a diet or give up an addiction and you make it public in order to get the support of your environment. That’s why I will share my goals and challenges, as well the outcome. On the other hand, I always thought keeping a diary as a very positive thing, since it helps to organize the ideas and see the obstacles with perspective. Finally, the blog is a challenge in itself, first, because I’ll write in English, which is not my mother language, and second, because I am trying to reach constancy and organization.
Now it’s up to you if you want to share the journey with me!
