Forever and ever? Back to the starting point

지금 하는 일에 회의를 느끼게 됩니다. 과연 이런 일을 하려고 여태 내가 이렇게 노력해 왔단 말야, 라던가 생각 외로 좋은 결과가 나오지 않는 지금에 화를 내게 됩니다. 하던 일을 접어두고, 한 번 지금까지 자신이 걸어왔던 길을 되돌아보세요. 보람있었던 결과도 완전히 헛수고였던 결과도 있었을 것입니다. 어떤 결과가 나왔었든 그것은 당신의 성장에 도움이 되었을 것입니다. 그리고 그 일을 해왔던 과정을 되돌아보고 초심으로 돌아가 다시 기운내 일을 시작합시다.

This was actually taken from a horoscope reading (lol) but totally describes how I feel at the moment.

For the benefit of people who may not be able to comprehend the entire chunk, here’s a quick translation.

You are having doubts about the things you are doing now. Either you are thinking “Did I really work that hard to be doing this kind of thing now?” or you are feeling angry that you can’t see good results coming out from your efforts. You should stop what you have been doing so far and then reflect about the whole journey you have taken till now. Some of the stuff you did had good and fruitful results, while others was a waste of effort. No matter what kind of results you get, all these experiences will helped you in your personal growth. And think about the whole process and journey of the things you did, remember how you felt when you first started and then start working hard again.

초심으로 돌아가다

I think that’s true. It’s really important not to lose sight of your initial goals/feelings etc. Sometimes frustrations set in and I end up forgetting how much I loved something or how I felt about it at the start.


Reposted from my instagram. Something that I have to keep remind myself too.

Never be afraid to take the first step.

Happy October ^^

    Thank you for this! I really needed to see this today. Yesterday I was talking with my mum and I am so stressed. It seems like when I trying to do something good for myself, I mess myself up even more. Here’s to greater things happening in October! ^^~
