Being an introvert in communications

I just wanted to address the internal tug-of-war I go through when it comes to the career I’m in. I love meeting new people and that’s the joy of being in journalism.

But the unfortunate downfall is how tiring I feel after the day is done (if it is really done). I immediately crave my alone time whenever I am finished interviewing someone. I love interviewing them, but it takes a lot of energy out of me when I do it.

I ask myself, “If it’s so tiring, why are you still doing this?” It’s rewarding, that’s why. I love the look in the interviewee’s eyes after I completed the story. I love taking a step back and admire the work I created that can touch someone else’s life.

Even though the day-to-day lifestyle of being a journalist and/or writer is tiring, the work is rewarding. As the day ends, I spend time alone and I smile commending myself on the work that was done.

This Is Only the Beginning

I’m so excited to start this blog! I created it because I felt compelled to release my thoughts and share my experiences to anyone who is willing to read them. I wanted to analyze my feelings on this platform. I go through many ups and downs mentally. It would be insane to hold all my energy without freeing it. So I told myself, ‘Why not create a blog to express my thoughts?’ The inspiration came through my sister as she was creating her own art blog. And here I am 🙂

My plan for this blog is to inspire readers to express themselves and live their lives unapologetically. It’s a daily struggle conquering my own thoughts and insecurities. But through this blog, I will highlight the meaning of the quote, “The pen is mightier than the sword.” I will grow into the person I was destined to be.  I love to write and I hope you love my words as much as I do.
