Thank you so much for all of the new followers 🙏 I am almost at 600 followers

Truly, with all of my heart, I am so thankful for this blogging community. I know that I have been inconsistent with posting on here, but I have never left this platform since I created this blog. Pocketfuloflearning means so much to me and I would never leave this blog. Even when I don’t post for weeks, I am still checking the notifications and updates for this blog. I have the WordPress app on the home screen of my phone. This matters to me and I am eternally grateful for all of the support that I have received.

Starting this blog from its first inception was a scary decision. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was about to make a decision that would change my life forever. I have met fellow bloggers that are so good at their craft and are the nicest people ever. I’m not even exaggerating. When I wrote my post about being estranged from my family, I was afraid of being judged for my decision. I realized that I had nothing to be afraid of because everyone ultimately supported me. It was the most difficult situation of my life and it broke me down seeing how everyone still continued to support me. I think it’s difficult to share my life so openly on here, but this community is different. There is so much support and love here that I don’t see on other platforms.

Life continues to surprise me. Year after year, I find that I’m still learning about myself. And I hope that you will continue to write on your own blog. Sharing my life and writing has been one of the best experiences that I’ve had. I hope to inspire others who may want to start a blog to begin writing.

Thank you again for all of the support. I know that I am constantly thanking my followers, but I would be nothing without you all. Thank you so much.

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!

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.

Work Never Ends

Hi everyone 👋 It’s been awhile since my last blog post on here. I have been more active on my medium page, but I have never forgotten about this blog. Medium is great, however, this blog is the reason why I love writing. I will continue to write on here for the rest of my life. I enjoy every moment of writing on Pocketfuloflearning. And I hope that you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy writing.

Teaching has been a whirlwind of emotions. I feel like each week passes by very quickly. I’m always playing catch up and trying my best to keep up with everything. I’m grateful for all of the continued business though. Since the pandemic started, it has been tough for me to acquire new students. Now, I have a huge waitlist for new students. And I feel lucky every day for this blessing.

I know that I have mentioned that I cried when the pandemic began. I didn’t know how my lessons were going to survive the pandemic, but I learned that everything will work itself out. I grew triple the size since for my studio and life has been happily busy for me.

A lot of my work has been ongoing for my piano studio. I created a yelp page for my business and I also started posting on YouTube. The link to my YouTube channel is here. If you subscribe, watch, or like my videos, I would appreciate it so much. I’m a small creator on the internet. The numbers don’t matter to me as much because I enjoy playing the piano. And I want to share the joy of music with the world. It would mean the world to me for your support.

Thank you to everyone for continuing to support me on my blog. I hope that you’re having a wonderful day. I’ll see you in the next blog post!
