Why Starting Over is Good Sometimes


In my life, I have only had to start over twice. Once when I didn’t do well in my A-Levels and had to move over to BTEC Media and then again when I fell out of love with writing.

Both times I didn’t want to start over. In 2014 when I found out my AS Level grades, I wanted to give up there and then. In my head, I had failed everything –  my grades were good, but they weren’t good enough. But starting over a new course made me realise what I love most. It put me on a path where I fell in love with designing, filming and made me feel okay about the fact that I talk during movies (haha).

By this point, I had already been writing on my previous blog for about a year and a half. I thought it was the greatest decision of my life. I loved my blog, I loved the community, and more importantly, I loved writing.

Moving forward a few years, I started to become disappointed with the content I was creating. Other people seemed to be liking it. I found a trend with the posts that people were reading most and then I made my first mistake. I started to think of my blog as the start of a career, which is most certainly wasn’t.

I don’t want to blog for a living. I don’t even want to write for a living. I enjoy writing for myself and what I like. When I started looking at the trends and what was getting the most views, I very quickly fell out of love with writing and my blog.

Which is why I started over. Making a completely new blog has helped me understand what things I enjoy writing about. It has helped me grow as a person. So if you ever need to start over, it’s okay. You’re not moving backwards, you’re just experiencing new things and growing as an individual.

Thank you,
