Thank you for stopping by and reading this latest Limitless Believing article, one which I thought long & hard about before deciding to write it.
I know that I haven’t published anything in a while, and for this I apologise. I haven’t received any complaints about my irregular posting schedule, but if there’s anyone out there who was eagerly anticipating my next article, then I hope this will do as a way of compensating.
You see, over the past few months, I haven’t been posting as often as I used to. When I first created Limitless Believing, I was excited – I thought that a chance to start over from Unlock The Door and re initiate my blogging desires was just what I needed. And to begin with, I was right.
After creating a writing & marketing strategy, and finalising all of the design elements, I felt like I was ready to go. I knew that I was capable of writing strong pieces of writing, and coming up with relevant and interesting topics, so I was sure of my ability to produce the goods and develop Limitless Believing into one of the top personal development websites out there.
Unfortunately, it since hasn’t worked out that way. Up until around the start of September, I was still passionate about this website and its content. I was writing twice a week and keeping a good flow. But two things happened in September that have since lowered my time & desire to write meaningful and detailed articles:
- I started a new full time job. This has reduced my spare time, particularly in the mornings. I prefer to write in the mornings and edit in the afternoon/evening, but since my morning time has decreased, my writing time has suffered as a result. And as my job provides a decent salary, I have to prioritise it over my ‘non-paying’ writing. Don’t get me wrong – I’d rather I was paid for the writing, but I don’t have that luxury right now.
- I have decided to move into the field of Psychology. This means that in January, I’ll be starting a new distance-learning Psychology course for a year. It’s like a taster course, where if I pass, I’ll be able to do a full conversion course to convert my Drama degree into a Psychology course. This will then open up a field of possibilities for me, because a Psychology graduate has potential to work in a variety of areas.
You may ask why I’m pursuing a Psychology career. To tell you the truth, I have always loved helping people – it’s why I started Unlock The Door back in 2010. I’m a caring guy by nature, and to help others when they’re down and lift them back up again gives me immense satisfaction, as well as a feeling that my life is worthwhile.
I suppose we all feel like we want to help others in some way, yet we all choose to express it differently. Some prefer physically nursing the afflicted, others choose to teach the next generations, and others still prefer to dive into emergency situations and save lives. I believe that it’s my ‘calling’ to help others mentally and emotionally, through good and bad times.
And I have identified psychology (literally ‘study of the mind’) as one of the best ways to achieve my calling.
The human mind has always fascinated me – how we think & feel, what causes us to act, why we like & dislike certain things, & so on. I would love to move into this intriguing branch of work & learn more about the human condition. Indeed, I believe gaining qualifications and studying is the next step for my career, and I’m genuinely excited about the possibilities.
But what does this mean for Limitless Believing?
Limitless Believing 2013
To be honest, I don’t know. I would like Limitless Believing to go on until April, when it’ll be a year old, but it currently feels like it’s limping rather than marching towards that milestone.
If I find inspiration and/or time, then I will continue writing. Perhaps this Psychology taster course will help restart my creative writing juices, who knows? But I don’t intend on ending it yet – I think that Limitless Believing still has some life left inside it.
I may have closed down the newsletter, but I don’t want to close the website down too. Maybe there’s more to come from me, and that I’m currently going through a break from writing here. I wish I had more answers for you, but I currently don’t.
Thank you for sticking around to this point – it’s been a pleasure to write for you & and read some of your lovely & kind comments. I hope to see you again when I return.
Until next time, be safe, & have a Happy New Year!
