UA-114812973-16 Well Rounded: Blog Tour

Blog Tour

I was invited to be a part of this "Blog Tour" that is going through the blog world right now. I was invited by my sister who did it for our own blog, Sisters, What! She is the main reason our blog is even successful!

So this blog tour has asked us to answer these questions about our creative process, I'll do my best.

1) What am I working on?

Can I answer this question with a list of what I wish I was working on? But seriously, the list is a mile long. I feel like I have no time to work on what I actually want to work on. Luckily I do have a few projects right now that I've been working on, even if I've been working on them for far too long. Maybe writing about them will get me working faster!

My room: There are a few reasons I'm re-doing my room right now and the first reason is because I want my room to be a safe, inspiring, happy place. A place where I can get to know myself and draw closer to my Heavenly Father, a place where I can be enlightened and learn more. I want inspiring words and pictures, that are full of color and life, all over the wall. Second reason is, my room needs to seriously be organized. It looks "tidy", but by tidy I mean there are random piles all over the room that only mean something to me. But even then when I'm trying to find something I have to look through each pile. And the third reason is, I want to get rid of all my "stuff". Things that I've always kept because I'm convinced they mean something, or that I'll wear one day, or actually need. Clearly if you haven't "needed" it in the past six months you probably won't need it in the next six months. The reason this project is taking me so long is because it is so hard for me to de-clutter, organize and be creative. Let me know if you have any great tips and/or ideas. Pictured is some of my inspiration for my room. Don't you love the clean and brightness of each picture!?

Exercise: The goal is pretty simple, exercise more. But since that isn't a realistic goal because how do you measure it, this is my real goal: running at least 2x a week, yoga 2x a week and some form of exercise every single day. It can be anything. Just as long as I'm moving and getting my heart beat up. What I want most is to do a little bit of exercise in the morning. Here are a few workouts I'm going to start doing. 

Spiritual/Intellectual: I love reading, but sometimes I find myself just reading pure brain candy because it doesn't require much thinking 
when I'm tired. So I've made the goal to read one spiritual and/or intellectual book each month. I've started doing this over the summer and when I'm reading a book that makes me think and helps me grow I find I'm much more ambitious and happy. Here are a few of the books that are on my list for the next two months: 

2) How do my creative doings differ from others from its genre?

When someone thinks of creative people my name does not come to mind, but this is something that I've always wanted to be. My family has helped me see I am creative, just not in the crafty way. I create through my words and my daily life style. I think how I differ is that I just say it how it is, which can be good and bad. If you go through my posts you'll find I'm straight forward in my thoughts, and in how I live my life. 

3) Why do I write/create what I do?

I write because I want to help the world be a better place. I honestly don't know if anyone is actually reading my blog but I share my thoughts and my life in hope that someday one of my posts will help someone through the hard time that is life. That maybe one of the hard things I'm going through can help with someone who is going through the same thing. Just maybe it will make it easier for them then it was for me.

 My blog is called "Enjoy to the End" because I want people to join me on my journey of trying to make this concept a central part of our lives. That we can enjoy the hard times, as crazy as that sounds. And that is why one of my favorite quotes was the inspiration for this blog, "Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured", said by President Gordon B. Hinckley. 

4) How does your writing/creating process work?

Since my blog is fairly new I'm still ironing out my writing/creating process, trying to be more organized. But right now my posts really consist of what is on my mind lately and what I've been doing in my life. I try to write about things that are meaningful and not just fluff. I think of this as my meaningful journal. 

Now to pass on the torch to the next blog....A blog I just recently found is Simply Clarke. I love what Marquis has done with her blog. It is full of light and it is real. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
