As I said before, our choices, among other things, define us.
I want to start defining, I want to start giving a shape to this blog.
This blog is personal.
I’m not interested in building an audience — maybe in a future, in a different project I’ll want to do that, but not today and not on this blog.
My purpose for this space is to have a place to write in english. Maybe I haven’t told you, but English is not my native language. I want to challenge myself to develop a skill to not only communicate something, but to do so coherently and beautifully.
Also I want to write about snapshots of my current life for my future self.
Time will tell if I can do that. Time will tell then, but today this is what I say.
We are defined by what we do. By what we want, by what we can do, by what we believe. And so on.
We also are defined by what we don’t do. By what we don’t want, by what we can’t do, by what we don’t believe. And so on.
We are defined by what we choose and by what we don’t choose.
Also, we define ourselves on ly up to a certain point: we are also defined from outside ourselves. So long to that childish thought of being the architect of your own destiny. But I´m leaving that for another post.
That’s it. I’ve said it.
Jogging is a hobby I acquired recently. I started last year around may and today I can run 4 miles in 40 minutes.
Not a big deal for other people but I know how hard it has been for me and I’ve come to appreciate every little achievement.
Day by day. Step by step. Mile by mile.
I’m still trying to find my own voice.
I still am not sure what do I want to share on this blog. I don´t want to overexpose myself, but I’m also not very interesting, so, the more I keep for me only, the less I have to write about.
I guess that’s a dilemma everyone who starts a blog has to solve. At least I’m in good company.
I will find out. Eventually. I guess. I hope.
