Welcome to my first post on my new blog! For some of you this may be our first introduction, but blogging is not new to me. I used to ramble on and on about my love of health and fitness on my old blog fitcurvyfierce.wordpress.com. (I am leaving it active for the time being so feel free to check out some of my old posts. The knowledge and workouts you will find there are definitely still relevant.)
Well, after a prolonged hiatus, I have decided to return back to the blogging world.
Why did I stop blogging?
Well the easy answer is, I got busy.
Starting residency and getting comfortable with my new found responsibility as a doctor took much of my focus away from the things that I loved to do. I wanted to make sure that I was training to be a great doctor who provided the best care to her patients.
The difficult answer is, that I was too focused on being a perfectionist and “getting it right” that I allowed the fear of failure to fester.
I let that drive for perfectionism, spill over into the little things, like blogging, that brought me peace and joy. I became super critical of the thoughts, ideas and experiences I wanted to share with you all and this just led me to abandon blogging altogether.
Why am I back?
I got over myself.
For lack of better words lol. Residency is wrapping up and now that I see the light at the end of the tunnel, I realized all the experiences I have kept to myself. The good and the bad. Maybe they would have been better to share in the heat of the moment, but regardless I know my stories are destined to benefit others, the ones already written and those waiting to leave the pen.
What’s up next?
Any and everything! 🙂
A lot has changed in my life in a short period of time. I am in my last year of residency. I have traveled around the world. I “big chopped” three times. I survived adult braces (whew!). I am a new wife, starting my own family and leaning on God more than ever before. As a recovering perfectionist, I hope my new blog will become a useful resource to you as I share my stories/tips/reviews.
