We are reaching the end of this godforsaken year, and I couldn’t be more thankful for it. 2020 for me, just like many others, has been a year of intense emotion and epiphanies.
I could go on and on about what I have felt since January, but these are the Big Ones.
I’ve also realized that I haven’t been using my talent nor my platform to the extent that I could.
I was The Fit Writer. I wrote about health, fitness, nutrition, and occasionally mental health.
I was The Fit Writer, but now I’m just Kayla Balserak, or Rak as many people call me.
I wrote about health and I still might write about health. I’m a Certified Personal Trainer and don’t plan on leaving my career in fitness anytime soon because I love it. I’m passionate about it.
I’m also passionate about writing, and writing about more than just fitness. In fact, writing about fitness started to feel more like a chore and less like something I truly wanted to write about. I started saying things like, “I HAVE to write a blog post about this fitness topic.” Put emphasis on the “I HAVE to,” as if it was something I dread.
I don’t want to dread writing, especially writing something for my blog.
These are the reasons why I’m starting over. As of right now, consider this as an educational lifestyle blog.
The words I write in the future might not be comfortable like they were in the past.
Gone are the days of bland, unoriginal blog posts. I want to tell stories, educate about anything and everything, and make others feel empowered with my words. I made a promise with myself to only write what I am inspired about, what I want to share with others. Not just mindlessly crank out a post because my “blog plan” told me said post needs to be published on Monday.
This is no longer “just another fitness blog.”
It is going to be bigger than that. We are focusing not just on health, but also on life, love, and learning.
I hope you will come here with an open mind and join me.
