On not being good enough…


Dress: Urban Outfitters (on major sale!)
It has been a while since I posted. I took an unplanned break from this space. There are a couple of reasons for this. I started a new job that demands most of my day. I went to Spain for 3 weeks and didn’t take my laptop (travelled with a carry on only!). I was also feeling rather uninspired.
I started blogging many many years ago and I used to love to write. My little space brought me so much joy and I’m pretty sure the only people reading were myself and my mom. It didn’t matter however that no one else read it, because it was a place for me to be creative.Then the blogging scene became more of a business, and I have nothing against that, but I was feeling so much pressure all the time to create content just to keep up.I started to feel like I wasn’t good enough and was just playing catch up all the time. This lead to a spiral of negative thoughts in other aspects of my life as well, which left me feeling unsure and insecure.
Feeling that pressure and anxiety really does not work well with trying to be creative and to produce content or for anything else in life really!
I have taken some time to think about everything. I have been reflecting on all that I have managed to achieve in the past few months in my career (that involves making a difference in peoples’ health), which has been a great deal. This has helped immensely with feeling better and more confident. But I have also finally understood that my career does not define who I am. I have also been thinking about what is important to me and what truly makes me happy, without thinking about what others will think about me if I choose to pursue these.
I am still dealing with it all in my head but I really do want to get back writing and sharing on here. Thanks for sticking with me while I get everything figured out but I’m back and planning more regular content for you guys.
I have been posting lots on instagram (@naghmehlesani) so you can see lots of photos there of my trip to Spain!
I am planning on doing a post about that trip.It was the first time I travelled with only a carry on and it was for 18 days so I think that will be something fun to share here.

Love,
Naghmeh

    Girl – I totally get how you’re feeling. While I love blogging for “meeting” new people, it’s so easy to get caught up in comparing yourself to others and can definitely be a downer. Try and focus on doing you!
