Embrace the Contradictions (TToT #18)

I am a woman of contradictions.

Black AND white. ūüėČ (Yeah. I had to work that in there. LOL. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t!)

Timid, yet bold.

I like to socialize, but I really am an introverted homebody.

I am enjoying math & being a student, but I really like having an outlet through my writing.

Calculated AND creative. . . (but, lately, I feel more like I’m calculating with not enough creating).

I am a woman of extremes — one extreme or the other. It’s frustrating sometimes. . . But, it’s usually only frustrating when I can’t figure out how to balance all these different parts of me.

With that said, I am in a place in life where I am so, so blessed to be able to figure all of that out. (Thankful #1)

Wishes vs Intentions (On Purpose: Revisited)

I’ve been in somewhat of a foul mood lately. . . I wanted a post that would allow me to vent some of my frustrations in a semi-positive (although, perhaps, unorthodox?) way. SO, I present to you “WISHES,” my small “wish list” of sorts, fashioned from some of my frustrations of lately. Then, towards the end, is “INTENTIONS,” taking a¬†moment to reflect back on the On Purpose series I temporarily abandoned during my recent month-long unscheduled hiatus from Calculated Chaos. . .

On Purpose: Getting Passionate

When I read today’s prompt for the Blog-tember Challenge, I couldn’t help but think how extremely broad it seemed (in my opinion). . .

“I am passionate about ______________. “

I am passionate about¬†so many things! I asked myself, “How can I even¬†start to narrow this down?!” Then a thought struck me. . .

Several weeks ago, I started a series of posts, scheduled for every Friday. (Coincidence that today also happens to be a Friday? I think not!) This series is called “On Purpose.” (To get a better understanding of what it is all about, please read the introductory post here.)

On Purpose

These posts have helped me tremendously in becoming more purposeful & — perhaps even more importantly for me — being able to measure my productivity in staying purposeful & living intentionally, rather than letting life happen to me. This is something I have become quite passionate about (among many¬†other things, of course)! It is imperative that I make sure I stay productive & do not stagnate — or even¬†feel like I am stuck. It’s quite a big deal in my world & a huge¬†factor in whether I feel happy.¬† Continue reading “On Purpose: Getting Passionate”
