To my dear (old) blog readers,
I’m back! Sorry I haven’t been blogging for the past month or so. I stopped blogging weekly about half a year ago but I have decided to continue once again! (Let’s hope I can last for awhile).
Anyhow, one of the questions I get asked most often is: “Grace, how do you stay so positive all the time despite everything you’re going through?”
Some of you may or may not know that I have an autoimmune disorder that affects me on a normal basis. Some days are extremely difficult for me because I’m in constant pain. Despite this, generally, I’m quite content with my life. Here is why:
1. I do things I enjoy.
This may seem very simple, but it makes a huge difference. When I’m feeling ok, I do things that make me happy. For instance, I love singing. I would go karaoke with my friends, sing to Youtube videos, and sometimes, I even go on discord to sing on random servers and gather audiences from all over the world. 😛
I also read books that motivate or enlighten me. I believe words are very powerful and many people underestimate what words can do. Whenever I am inspired, I actually take notes and eventually plan to write a post on it to share with my readers. I like empowering people.
2. I have goals and a purpose.
There’s a reason for everything I do. I know what I want, and I know what I need to do in order to achieve my goals. Basically, I want to improve people’s lives. I genuinely believe my blog can either motivate, broaden your views, and/or give you some tips.
If you read my translations, I believe I am sharing a good story with you guys. People read my translations because they can’t or prefer not to read Chinese. This means my actions are improving their lives because now they can enjoy the story as well. Continue reading “Three reasons why/how I stay positive”
