Self-Care Days Are The Best Days

This won’t be a long post, but I want to remind everyone to take some time off of work for yourself. Today, I watched an entire movie by myself. And I’ve never felt better. I can’t recommend self-care days highly enough.

Also, thank you for all of the support on this blog. I truly appreciate it. I’ll see you in the next blog post. Happy Tuesday!

Working On My New YouTube Channel

Hi everyone! I have been working on building my YouTube channel. I post videos of myself playing the piano and piano covers of new songs. I never thought that I would make a YouTube channel, but I’m so glad that I did. It has been a great addition to my blog. If you have ever been hesitant about starting a YouTube channel, don’t worry! It has been one of the best decisions that I’ve made. Like creating a blog, it’s better to create it now rather than waiting. The link to my YouTube channel is here. It’s called Lia’s Piano Studio. I would appreciate your support greatly and thank you so much for continuing to support my blog.

I care too much about what others think

Good morning! Today is Friday and I already know that it’s going to be a great day.

I’ve been thinking a lot about what others think of me. And honestly, I think that it has a lot to do with my insecurities. I constantly think about what others think of me. I can’t help it. There is a friend that I have that has never looked at me as even a equal. I have moved out of my parent’s house more than four years ago, lived on my own, pay my own bills, own my own car, created a big piano studio full of 40-46 students, gotten married, and taken care of my family. Even though I am light years ahead of him in life, he still can’t compare me as a equal. He thinks that I dance around my city all day. Haha and I can’t figure out why he thinks this way of me.

I’m only 27. I’ve been in my career for eight years at this point. Why can I never gain the respect from others that I am a successful person? I don’t get it.

If you want to read more of my content, I am also writing on medium.com. It’s a great way to establish yourself as a writer and it brings tons of traffic back to your blog. I’ve written a lot of blog posts about medium, but I will continue to talk about because it’s such a great blogging platform for writers.

I got everything that I wanted

Hi everyone! I love using WordPress because it’s easy to write blog posts on here. I’ve been feeling so grateful for all of the good things that have been happening in my life. I recently went through some things with my family and I realized that I’m better without them in my life. I still care for them, but I don’t keep them as close as I used to.

My life went through a huge downhill spiral when they were heavily involved in my life. I had days where I thought I would go crazy. I didn’t know if I was too sensitive or if I just needed space, but I had so many bad days where I couldn’t even understand anything that was going on. There were many days like that. When you are upset constantly, it changes your view of yourself. And I am so glad that I have began the journey back to appreciating myself again.

I hated myself greatly. I lost my self-esteem and my will to do anything. My family would call me “dramatic,” but they only valued their own emotions. They didn’t value mine. And that is why I keep my distance with them.

I have learned so much about myself these past couple of months. I thought I was too weak to stand up for myself and to walk on my own. It turns out that I am so much stronger than I thought I was. Not only can I stand up for myself, but I can take care of myself perfectly fine.

My life has gone through a dramatic change. I’ve seen and experienced many blessings since I’ve made the change. I wish that I had done this sooner, but it’s better to do so late than never.

I got the recital venue that I wanted today. Not only am I going to have a vacation house, but I am going to have a recital venue also. I can’t wait. And I attribute this blessing to all of the positive changes that I have made. I feel like for the first time that I can finally breathe. I don’t have anymore negative thoughts about myself. I used to constantly look down on myself because I was hearing the comments from my family members. They told me that I am not liked, appreciated, respected, or capable. These are a plethora of items that they continued to tell me that I don’t have. I ended up hating myself. My health disintegrated into nothing and I was in ruin.

Today, I feel like I have finally achieved everything that I have always wanted. I have the career, the beautiful family that I’ve created on my own, the financial stability, friends, and everything else that I’ve always wanted. I am grateful for my beautiful husband. I am so lucky to have him in my life.

I now know that I am not a stupid girl. I know that my words and emotions do matter. If I want to have a wedding, I deserve to have the special day for myself. And I deserve to be able to choose what I want to do with my life.

Thank you to those who have been with me and have read my words. I read all of your messages. They make me feel better on the days where I desperately need to hear them. And they matter a lot to me every day.

Not only is blogging a viable tool for creating a business and making money, but I will not be diminished anymore by my family who believes that it is not important.

I hope that you have a great weekend. And thank you so much for reading this. I greatly appreciate it.

Another day estranged from my family

This post won’t be too long. It is mainly for me to help put my thoughts into words. I really want to remember these moments. I know that I’ll look back at my moments of weakness and I’ll be stronger because of it.

I have been estranged from my family for almost five months. It feels like it has been a long time. I don’t know if I miss them or if I’m waiting for them to change. I hope that I can one day move past all of these feelings.

I know that I am so much stronger than I was five months ago. My life has changed drastically and for the better. I can’t wait to continue with my healing. I hope that my mind and my heart can finally find peace.

As always, thank you so much for reading. This blog and the community on WordPress means everything to me. I hope that you’ll have an amazing weekend. Thank you with all my heart.
