It’s been a long time since I’ve written a blog post. I used to write regularly throughout school and beginning of work, started on Xanga in grade 10, stopped for a while, restarted on Tumblr in 3rd year pharmacy then stopped approximately 1.5 year ago. It’s time to restart.
Over time, I’ve really lost my ability to write. I write notes at work and assignments for school, but the content is much more important than good writing. It’s time to work on that again. I’m going to keep to writing English this time, because my OCD kicks in to write symmetrical looking things once I write in Chinese. It then becomes a let’s write something that looks pretty and right, rather than expressing my thoughts the way it is.
I think lots, especially when I’m driving, which happens to be all the time also. I also think a lot after reading blogs, watching TED talks and movies, but all this is going nowhere. It’s time to write down the thoughts and hold on to it, and perhaps put it into actionable items or think about part 2 rather than rethinking part 1 over and over again.
Writing down these things that happened and random inspirations can help me to document what I have achieved and stay motivated. I remember when I first started working, I wrote about my goals and lessons from the day of work as well as these minute drug therapy problems I resolved to play my part in the world. We’re still achieving, but it becomes just another part of our day when we really should celebrate what we’ve done. Remembering it all is the only way these little differences can aggregate to a bigger difference.
Staying positive. Between a busy life schedule, the day to day grind at work, or the negative energy in pharmacy field, it’s time to remind myself and whoever happens to read this to stay positive. I am positive for the most part, but it doesn’t hurt to be more positive. I may not be able to conquer the world and fix all its problems, but more positive energy will translate my motivation into action and start an upward spiral.
