How to be seen?

Weekly Thoughts 74: How to be seen?

So I failed a goal this week. It did last longer than I thought it would. I missed a couple days of posting. The 20th day of the month is when I missed a day of posting. Then 2 more times after that. I got lazy, then I couldn’t think of what to post. The Mental Health Matters poem was so spur of the moment. It wasn’t even that good to me. I try to post more to stay consistent, but the writers blocks be killing me.

My focus should really be on getting more traffic. I need to figure out more ways to bring more family here. I love to blog and want it to be my life, but I have to profit at some point. Being talented won’t bring you income without a strong work ethic. I know I can make great content, but it’s just not being seen.

Being seen. I remember being in high school. I was 6’2 in the 9th grade. I was weighing around 320 pounds. Football was a sport I knew people of my size be playing. I only liked to write. But I was forced to play by what seemed to be everyone. There wasn’t a hall, street, room, or store that I wouldn’t be seen in and as a future big deal because of my size. I heard every line about how I was destined for the promise land. But I only wanted to write. I think I said all that because it feels like the same old struggles. Fighting to be seen for who I truly am. A writer.

That’s everything I have on my mind this week. The end of the month is almost here. Photoshoot wise. I don’t see it happening by my birthday. Maybe after it, but not before. I’m sad, but you don’t have to be too. Check out my take on Mental Health with a new Poem called Mental Health Matters. Then view this week’s Writing Prompt #87. Finish with another poem. This one is from my 2018 spoken word project titled Poetic Gift. Check out Free now. See you next week.

  1. Sometimes it is important just for us to be ourselves, and I relate to the blogging problem. It is often hard to remain committed to blogging, especially if managing things like family, work, education etc.
