Becoming: The Process of Becoming What You Dream To Be
My journey has more meaning out of the struggles here and there and what it takes for me to bring you another blog post or video or whatever media it is that I use to communicate.
The process of becoming is a very hard but rewarding process. If someone told me before a started blogging to become a blogger knowing what I know today, there would have been a legitimate argument against it. But I became and today I enjoy creating content, albeit with a level of difficulty.
My journey has more meaning out of the struggles here and there and what it takes for me to bring you another blog post or video or whatever media it is that I use to communicate. I love my job. I love my blogging and content creation and I wouldn’t give it up for the world. There is so much power in words. There is so much power in something that you create that could potentially outlive you and compound your place in the world and your view of it.
Becoming: A Tough, Tough Process
Becoming, for me, has been a tough, tough process. My goodness. It’s one of those journeys that you have no idea what it takes when you are getting into. Every day I learn something new. I argue sometimes that I have learned more in the last year than I learned in the four before it. It is so complicated and there are so many ways to do one thing.
It’s like becoming a mechanic and realizing that this car part fits so many other cars and that you can even build your own car from the ground up using parts from another car or other cars. Becoming is as such, it is fluid and non-rigid. I ask myself all the time what it takes to become a musician. I wonder what I’ll need to do and who I’ll need to be to present my art and my music in the most engaging way. Will that entail huge extravagant shows, or would a simple vlog or TikTok video connect with you enough?
There are Blessings in the Pain
I heard somewhere that “Kuna blessings kwa pain” meaning that there are blessing in the pain and Lord knows I have seen that this is true. Every single day I discover a new edge that I have. I discover a new talent, a new capability, a new strength, and a new point of view. I evolve. I learn new things and become better at what I do.
It doesn’t mean that I won’t face challenges or struggle even more to get to my destination, one that I would argue is more of a journey even. I discover myself in all the mess of molding myself to become who I want to be. I discover my passions, my weaknesses, things I should and can do better, and better ways to deliver my content to my audience that I love. You can then imagine how pissed I was seeing a meme that says “Hakuna trophy ya kuteseka” or there is no trophy for suffering.
