Shifting from "Searching" to "Pursuing"

Hello, world. It's been a while. In case you were wondering, I'm still here.

I originally started this blog right after I got laid off to rethink my life. Writing is a way for me to organize my thoughts, and putting them into a blog format seemed a great idea to track progress and keep myself encouraged and motivated. It was purely for myself. I did nothing to promote this blog. I expected no feedback from anybody.

Even after I started to get visits from few people, it didn't impact me as to what I was doing (or what I was writing about). I didn't know who they were and I wasn't going to change what I was doing. But along the way, somehow WSJ found me and it sort of put faces on my visitors--possibly in a same situation as me; laid off and asking themselves, "what do I do now?"

So after that, I started to think (believe it or not) whether I was writing stuff that was useful to my fellow laid-off people. It wasn't a huge difference, I guess, because I was going to write about how I was trying out different things in search of what I want with my life anyway. Nonetheless, it wasn't purely for me anymore.

I'm not saying that was bad and I didn't enjoy. In fact, it made my struggle easier--I could write about it to possibly make someone in the same situation feel that he/she wasn't alone.

But now that I've moved on from the "searching" period to "pursuing" period, I'm no longer sure if anything that I write can be helpful to people who have been stopping by here. (Well, maybe not many come here anymore since I haven't been writing much, but anyway..)
And "pursuing" has more to do with "doing" as opposed to "searching" that involves a lot of "thinking" that I don't always feel that need to write to organize my thought anymore.

So that's why I haven't been writing as much as I used to lately.

I had promised to write one more post to let you know what I'll do with this blog, but I'm still not sure what to do with this blog. I've been busy "pursuing" I guess. And I will still write another post once I know. In fact, I'll probably write about my "pursuing" status just as an update before that.

I hope everyone who was visiting me here before is making a progress in finding what he/she wants in life. I really do. Please remember that.
