How did I come up with the title? When I first got the idea to start blogging I wanted to come up with a title that would be specific yet all-encompassing of what I wanted to write about. I’m so thankful this one popped into my head because “Experiencing life now” I feel is accurately descriptive of the many accumulations of experiences I’m having as a result of creating a new life, i.e., my baby. It’s also about how I’m maintaining and changing my life as I go. And wow, things have changed in so many ways! The “upward journey” part refers to my general take on life.
Why did I decide to blog? I enjoyed writing way back in high school and wanted to reconnect with that part of myself. I plan to use this space to creatively showcase my observations, cognitions, hypotheses, various other inspired ideas and interesting happenings. The best medium I could think of that has the flexibility to express all those aspects is through a blog. Also, I’m hoping that this will help to extend the dendrites in my brain! I like adding dendrites.
What will I be blogging about? Some topics will include: a series on time-saving tips; unusual mommy moments I have as well as my take on the typical mommy moments; do-it-yourself projects I experiment with; adopting healthy lifestyle habits; new hobbies I take up; a series on learning to let go of various things; a series on being efficient; etc….the list goes on!
Where’s my photo? I will insert an actual photo once I get back from vacation in October. I’m not intending to be mysterious but I don’t really have a good picture that’s recent so until then, I’m using a pattern I created in Paint as a placeholder. (I enjoy making shapes and filling them in with colors!)
