Why decide to start a blog now? Glad you asked! Here are a couple of reasons:
Honestly, I need it.
While I want to think of this blog as a place where people can learn from me, I’m still learning about myself. I think this is great platform to self-reflect, analyze and think. I don’t have all the answers and that’s okay. However, I find that I work best when I feel like I’m helping others, even if I’m actually helping myself.
What is discipline?
Something Alena has yet to master. I’ve been thinking about creating this blog for a while and I’m more than ready to hold myself accountable. I need to be in the studio cultivating my art. Whether it comes to my marketing job, personal fitness or my mental and emotional awareness, it is important to put myself on the spot and rise to the occasion.
Writing soothes my soul.
At the heart of it all, no matter how much I try to fight it, I love writing. It’s so therapeutic to get everything I’m thinking off of my chest. I love connecting with people through simplistic, conversational writing. I’m not trying to impress you with big words, I’m trying to reach your soul. I want ART Undone to be a place that you feel at peace, while also being able to think. Release all expectations and simply enjoy.
It is time!
I have a lot to say in many different ways so now is the time to speak up!
Because why the heck not?
I refuse to be anything but myself. I want to start a blog so that is exactly what I’m going to do. I’m going to do it to the best of my ability because it makes ME feel good. At the end of the day, so much is going on in the world, you should do what makes you happy. ART Undone makes me happy. I feel alive, so why would I ever take it away? If that ever changes, we shall talk about it later :-).
So, here we go!
