So I have a confession to make: getting back to blogging is a little confusing. I have about a million various things mI would like to post about, but there isn't really much cohesion. I would love to do film reviews, peer interviews, fashion write-ups, Birmingham news, technology bits, college advice, lifestyle documentation, etc etc etc, but I'm just at a loss at how to go about it all. And this confusion is the perfect way to lead into my post:
Lately I've claimed that I'm a "jack of all trades, but a master of none." Basically, I know a lot about a lot, but not enough about any in particular.
But I'd like to change that. In a sense, I would like to refine my talents. I'm the type of person that genuinely loves to do it all, or at least try to do it all. Then it comes down to the fact that I might actually do too much. I know it comes down to finding that perfect balance (which, if you've kept up with this blog, you know that has been a major issue for me this past year). Having a lot of interests keeps life exciting, but it gets pretty disheartening when I realize results become a tad bit more difficult to receive. I also think it's for this reason that I'm such an expert procrastinator. Take for example the fact that I'm blogging right now instead of writing my final papers which are due in a week...
Life is filled with so many exciting opportunities, and I want to take advantage of them all! Even down to the hobbies and special interests- everything just seems so neat to me. I want to be great at something though. I want to prove to myself I'm capable of finding that one special thing that I can be successful in. Have any of you ever felt this way before? I know it seems like this is some silly woe of an overachiever, but I really feel like it is an area of my life I should address. Maybe I've had it wrong this whole time- maybe life isn't about doing it all? It isn't that I'm doubting my interests, I'm just contemplating what they are worth to me.
Though it's kind of hard to admit, I think it's finally time to prioritize.
