once upon a time, I had this grand idea to start blogging, writing books, and going for morning jogs. It all began with a New Year’s resolution, as most great ideas do. However, much to my dismay, I couldn’t even keep up with it for a week. The concept of blogging seemed to slip away from me, vanishing into thin air.

Like many others, I was quick to blame time for my failures. But in those moments of introspection and self-reflection, I realized that time wasn’t the culprit here — I was.

Time is a constant, always there, always enough. It’s our perception, priorities, and preferences that determine how we utilize it. When we have a well-planned routine in place, time works exactly as expected.

In an attempt to better manage my time, I started exploring hobbies. I immersed myself in the joy of reading good books, documenting my daily experiences through blogging, creating comprehensive to-do lists, and striving to diligently follow them. I can proudly say that I’ve become 20% better than the person I was before. And I’m hopeful that this improvement will continue on an upward trajectory each day.

However, what truly ignited my motivation to focus more was the idea of blogging. As an SRE/DevOps Engineer, my days are filled with endless challenges. But the beauty lies in deciphering whether there’s a predefined solution to each problem. I’ve had my fair share of frustrating days spent struggling over minor setbacks. And the reason? Lack of communication. Often, the solution was already within reach, and a brief discussion with my peers could easily unravel the enigma.

Throughout my journey, I’ve realized that blogs and online channels have played a crucial role in my personal growth. They’ve helped me mature, gain knowledge, and evolve as a professional. This realization sparked a desire within me to give back to the open-source community.

And that’s where my story takes a turn. I began summarizing my daily challenges, and sitting down to write posts that could benefit others. It became my way of contributing to the open-source movement and making a positive impact.

So, that’s a glimpse into my story, and I promise to share more as I go with the flow. I know it may sound somewhat motivational, but it’s the kind of content that suits my landing page perfectly.

Let’s keep the inspiration flowing!
