Things that I want to change in my life

I’ve been reflecting on my previous post and I’ve came up with some ideas that I want to work on for myself. I’ve realized that I am definitely reliant on my partner for a part of my happiness and I want to be able to make myself happy too. I know that life is more than just relying on one person. It’s not that I don’t love him, I just want to be able to make myself just as happy as he makes me. Here is my list of changes I’m planning on making:

1. I’m going to manage my dinner every night. I know that this might sound simple, but I’ve been partly reliant on my partner for dinner and I cannot do that anymore. I want to have all of my food ready for me and I want to eat the best food possible. I also don’t want to worry about not having anything. I’m a grown woman and I need to start being completely responsible for this.

2. I’m going to start taking more financial responsibilities. I hate the idea of being reliant on other people because I want to become completely self-sufficient. Unfortunately, in order to do this, I will have to just start doing it. I will learn how to do this and eventually, it will become easier and easier to do.

3. I’m going to live my life regardless of the limitations I have. I have been isolating myself in my room because of the fear of other people judging me. I’m going to simply stop caring. I cannot let myself be pulled back by other people. There are so many things I’ve wanted to do, but I don’t because of other people. My life is still going and I don’t want to waste my time over other people.

4. I’m going to start saving money. I’ve realized over the years that money speaks more than words can. Someone can say mean things about me, but it wouldn’t matter if I had money and I was self-sufficient. I need to start making a savings account that I can fall back on. I want to be able to have money to take care of myself. And it will definitely help when people try to talk down to me because I know that their words won’t matter. I am someone and I will be fine just by myself.

5. I’m going to work harder on school. My education will change everything for me and I need to remember that this is my priority. I have a whole lifetime to be with my partner and I will have dinner with him every night in the future. Our future will be great. I have to remember that.

Of course, these goals are highly influenced by my own life, but I hope it can give everyone some perspective on their own lives. I’m still learning and I am going to continue on improving myself every day.

An Update on my Life

Hi everyone 👋 I’m back from a short break. I’ve been sick from the flu and I’m actually still recovering from the flu. I haven’t been doing much of anything besides watching movies and resting. I’m trying to get back on the working train and start working again, but I’ve been afraid. I’m afraid to overextend myself and to work too hard when I know my body needs to heal; that is mainly why I’ve been cooped up in my house for a couple of days. I also know how my body reacts to stress and being overworked. I’m not the type of person that can work when I’m sick.

I have been working on my blog though. It’s easier to do because it’s on my phone and it’s one of the only work related things I’ve done in the past couple of days besides going to teach one lesson. It’s been nice to work on my blog and give it the attention it needs. I’ve been obsessed with mommy blogs because I want to be a mommy blogger in the future. Motivational blogs are also my favorite.

I’m probably not going to write too much. I’m going to return back to my resting after writing this. I’ve been watching movies on Netflix. Olympus has fallen has been my absolute favorite movie so far. I also watched the other two movies In the series. I even watched Anger Management with Adam Sandler. I really hope I feel better tomorrow because I have my lsat class tomorrow. And I have a couple of lessons to go to. I’m also meeting my friend to hang out tomorrow. I’ll talk to you guys later!

How much time should you take to work on your blog?

The answer is up to you. You have to know how much time you can invest. Not many people have time to blog. And that’s okay. I know that I don’t always spend a lot of time on my blog. Instead of working on my blog for a couple hours per day, I’ll work on it every day for a couple minutes at a time. I’m not perfect. You don’t have to be. You will not always be able to work on your blogs for hours and hours at a time.

I will say that blogging is a total investment rather than a daily investment. You can write a blog post today and post it on the same day; that blog post will stay there forever. And you can reap the rewards from it long after you post it. When you reach about 200 blog posts, your blog should have enough content to entertain your audience for a long time. Also when you update your content and add more blog posts, you’ll have more posts that can attract views. I think that this is the smartest use of time. I know many YouTubers that utilize this same strategy.

The main takeaway is to continue working on your blog when you can. When you reach 200 blog posts, your blog will be in a good place to continue gaining views. Good luck on your blogging journey and keep blogging 👍

Just woke up

I’m going back to sleep again after I write this post, but you guys are the best. Thank you for showing so much support for my blogs. I’m so thankful to have my blogs and the WordPress community! 👏

Daily Life

I find my life so interesting because I’m constantly working and studying. Life is always busy for me. I find that I don’t always get to make it to events or that I usually have to arrive late. And that’s ok for now because I know the reward of achieving my goals will be worth it. I didn’t even drink any coffee today and I still made it through the day. I know I will be even more busy later when I’m back in school. And that’s ok with me too. I have accepted that life will be challenging for the next couple of years. I understand that I am only one person and I can’t handle everything, but why can’t I? I know I am more than capable. I actually can’t wait to be more busy. I want to be achieving and doing things that are productive. My entire life is one big cycle of working really hard every single day. It is satisfying for me.

My phone is always full of text messages and my list of things to do is never ending. I also have my calendar that is full of activities/tasks for me to do. I’m grateful for being able to reach for my dreams. And I’m lucky to know what I want from my life.

Blogging has always been a part of my goals for the future; that’s why I continue to keep blogging. I’ve been blogging for a year and a half now. And I’m so proud of myself for sticking with it. These blogs are a part of my life. I love blogging.

My life is hectic, but with this new year coming, I hope to be happy. I want my life to be drama free. I want to spend the rest of my life with my husband creating our little family together. I ultimately want to spend the rest of my life with him by my side. I hope to see us walking side by side together and I can’t wait to see him achieve his goals too. Thank you for an amazing platform to share my thoughts freely. I don’t think I’ve ever been in a group that has been so accepting of me. I like how no one judges you condescendingly here. And I am thankful to have my blogs. I hope everyone has a great New Years and a happy holidays! See you in the new year!

Side note: I haven’t written this much in a long time. I’ve never had so much to say on a topic, but I’m inspired today!

You’ll Be Okay

I’m in a couple blogging groups on Facebook and I’ve noticed the trend that many people are extremely worried about their blog. I see that they have many goals they would like to achieve and they are at a loss at how to achieve them.

I don’t consider myself a pro at blogging, but I know that all the things you can do for your blog don’t happen in one day. There are many options for increasing traffic to your blog. And there are options to monetize your blog. I thought I would share my advice with everyone and with anyone that may be worried about their blog. It’s okay to make mistakes. If you worry too much about creating the perfect blog post, you’ll never post anything. You just have to start diving in the deep waters and start swimming. My number one advice is to take things slow… one day at a time. You can’t accomplish everything in one day. Know that creating blog posts should be your prime concern. And if you write about what you care about the most, your passion will resonate in your blog.

Don’t worry about views or traffic. Just enjoy blogging and everything will fall into place 🙂

Diversifying Your Income

What I’m about to introduce to you is something that you probably haven’t considered before: diversifying your income. When you are thinking about becoming financially stable, you have to consider the idea that you have to have multiple streams of income. For example, many youtubers have income coming from brand deals, regular video views, their blog, affiliate links, and etc. When one platform shuts down, such as youtube, they are not out of a job.

Now, consider how many streams of income you have… Most people only have one and that’s from their full time job. If you don’t show up for your job, they’re going to fire you and your main stream of income disappears. Then the panic comes in. However, if you plan ahead and make sure that you have a life boat in case of emergency, you will be better off than most. And think about it. When you are making two streams of income, your lifestyle will also change.

Wow, you must be thinking that this sounds great, but how do you even start? Of course, setting up a second stream of income takes time and work. And if you are already working a full time job, there’s almost no way that you can take on another one. I’ll give you a picture of how people make time for this: they have a job that is VERY flexible. They are able to work hours whenever they want and they can basically call in sick whenever. There’s no boss to tell them what to do, so they have ultimate freedom in their day. THAT is when you can add multiple streams of income. It’s when you work at a job that gives you extra time to live or work on other things.

I’m not trying to push you down, I’m trying to do the opposite. I want you to be inspired! I want you to reevaluate what you’re doing and to know that you are capable of working your own hours. And your lifeboat is in reach. You just have to grab onto it.

Developing Higher Traffic on Your Blog

I was recently talking to my friends and I realized that there are so many blogs on the internet. If we wanted to stand out, there has to be an increase in our traffic. But, what Lia… how do we increase our traffic? Many bloggers will say to create more content and advertise. I say that you should stick to a schedule in posting. Post every week. You won’t believe how much of that makes a difference. It takes social media and your handiwork to create traffic to your blog.

But once you have your blog advertised, the trouble is creating consistent traffic to your blog. This is the thing that I am working on for myself. As you might know, I am a full time piano teacher and I don’t have a lot of time in my schedule. I spend most of my time running errands and teaching. There’s not a lot of time that I take for myself. If I want consistent traffic, I have to find my viewers. Target a specific niche and stick to it. If you want to talk about your life, then make your blog a lifestyle blog. Your blog is a canvas and you can paint any picture you want on it. Enjoy this time 🙂 I think blogging is amazing.

Celebration for my new followers!

I am so excited that the launch of my blog has been such a success. I knew that I would like blogging, but I wasn’t sure how successful it would be. In celebration of this great success, I’m going to share the best 10 tips that I have to be a great piano player 🙂

1. Start with a piano teacher that will help you reach your goals

2. Get inspired because it will help you develop a passion for playing the piano

3. Invest in a keyboard first, and a piano will be good after the second year

4. Practice a measure at a time and it will make a world of difference in your playing

5. Playing slowly is one of the best ways to learn a new piece

6. Try not to get frustrated if you don’t get it right away. It usually takes several tries to get it

7. Read the lesson book because it provides tons of information that you’ll need to learn and remember

8. Understand that you are learning for yourself and you’re playing will develop over time

9. Ask lots of questions to your teacher. Don’t be afraid to ask

10. Enjoy this learning process as much as you can! It goes by so fast, and I wish I could go back to learning
