Allow Your Priorities To Change With Time

We change a lot over a year by changing a little every day.

If we cannot control changes in ourselves, why do we feel obligated to keep our priorities unchanged?

You are not who you were a year ago, maybe you are a better version of yourself, or maybe the world turned you cold and bitter.

Either way, you changed!

Then, why do you stay stuck in places that don't serve you anymore?

No one can pull you out of such situations except yourself.

I let my priorities change and let them change unabashedly.

In 2013, I made a Twitter account and grew it to the best of my abilities.

By the end of 2015, my interest in Twitter lifted because my life had brought some changes that changed my interests.

I started writing and journaling in mid-2015 and by the end of the year, I was posting my writings on Instagram.

Gradually, I let Instagram take over my obsession with Twitter and I almost stopped using it within a few more years.

Here's the thing, the purpose that Twitter had to serve in my life had been served.

And when the universe has fulfilled its purpose, it starts removing that thing/people/situation from your life.

For many years, Instagram help me to build my writing career, made me fall in love with writing even more, taught me a lot, gave me wonderful readers like you all, helped me get interviewed and featured in renowned magazines, motivated me to publish two books and what not!

But then, LinkedIn came into the scene.

In 2020, I started using LinkedIn when insisted on by a friend, and I began loving it.

LinkedIn has what I love the most — a storehouse of knowledge and opportunities.

Instagram did me all good except for one thing. Despite a considerable following, I was unable to properly monetise it. And it took me a really long time to learn this lesson I: if it ain't bringing you money, joy, or peace, it ain't worth your time.

I loved Instagram as long as it brought me joy, fun, and peace but with reels taking over Instagram, it became more hectic and a lot like a task than fun. My following started declining just because I did not post every day during my wedding days.

And it never improved even after posting every day for a whole year.

Result? I let my priorities change again.

I made a new LinkedIn account because I had deleted my former account and started optimising my profile. I also planned to blog regularly because I simply love blogging.

Results? My blog is doing well and I have a constant income stream because of LinkedIn.

Yes, one month on LinkedIn is enough to get you some amazing freelance clients.

I am earning money doing what I love doing, that is, writing blogs and articles. I still post on Instagram but I am not attached to the number of likes, followers, and comments anymore, though I do cherish and treasure my readers.

I let the universe guide my intuitions and actions and allow my priorities to change unabashedly.

You should do it, too. Take the next step without completely giving up on the current one. Don't quit the job you hate if it pays your bills but start building a side hustle/source of income and when it is the right time, quit that job and pursue your dreams.

My advice is simple: Do what's best for you and your mental health.
