Pink My Ride is a blog about a journey. PINK, aside from it being one of my favorite colors, could also mean the following: 1) In the best condition (i.e., “the pink of health”); 2) When it comes to women’s skin, PINK is the presence of color and the opposite of PALE.
In other words, PINK is never dull. Pink is at a prime and is never ordinary. RIDE is another term for a journey, a voyage, an adventure. Life is a journey, and this blog is all about making the journey colorful through DISCOVERY (of oneself, through new experiences), LOVE, ENJOYMENT, and LEARNING.
Why I’m Blogging Again
I’ve experienced several bumps and detours on my own journey, and some of them weren’t pretty. There came a time when I thought I had my sights set on a particular destination, but my windshield became blurred by fogs, rains and storms. Metaphors aside, I got lost — I started to question who I am, my work’s meaning, my life’s purpose, and the goals I previously set for myself. I suddenly didn’t know what I wanted! Quarter life crisis? Maybe. Whatever that was, I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone! But then, with the help of people close to me, I mustered up the courage to just keep on driving and figure out new destinations.
So I did keep on driving, with hopes that I re-discover myself and my destination. Along the way I came across interesting places and things to do and I stopped over to explore them. All those places and things led me back here — to blogging, something I’ve always enjoyed and been passionate about. I’d like to use this blog to connect with (and hopefully, inspire) other women who are on a journey like me, and to let them know that they are not alone on the trip.
I’ve had several blogs in the past which are still plastered all over the web, but I never really got to maintain them. Maybe it’s because I didn’t have a clear purpose for blogging back then. Thanks to my blog mentor Martine De Luna, I learned all about BLOGGING WITH A PURPOSE.
Below is a mood board I created as an assignment during one of Martine’s workshops. This was done during the initial phases of brainstorming for this blog.
