¡Hola! I’m so glad you’re here!
My name’s Cristina.
I’m a 19-year old accounting major who is an avid enthusiast of the arts (if that isn’t a polarizing feat, I don’t know what is).
I know what you’re thinking, why does this teen have the audacity to teach me about self-care and intentional living? Well, it’s because I know what it feels to let your mental wellness take a backseat and go into an unhealthy productivity overdrive. It’s not something that I’d wish for other people to experience that’s why I started this blog.
Cloud Cristina was created to serve as a platform that aims to empower people like you to live intentionally and be the best version of yourself with the help of strategies, tips and tools on productivity, self-care and personal growth.
If you’d like to get a more detailed narrative of the story behind the blog, just keep reading!
Why was this blog created?
Journals stacked high with ink blots on my fingers, mountains of crumpled papers, and thoughts all over the place—that was me before (or at least the journals and papers part). Now that everything’s digital, I’ve thrust all my ideas and sketches into the virtual world; however, fragments of ideas and musings don’t really make sense when they’re scattered and suspended mid-air.
With this blog, I’m able to create an amalgamation of all my thoughts neatly tied with a nice little bow on top. Cloud Cristina is a passion project-slash-work in progress that’s carefully curated and designed by yours truly; Cristina, a sophomore from UP Diliman taking up BS Business Administration and Accountancy, who’s slowly returning to her roots in writing.
The seven years I’ve devoted to the sciences made me lose myself, and drained away all my creative passions (cheesy, I know). I’d like to think that this blog holds me accountable to my mission of rekindling my ardor for writing all while sharing my process of self (re)-discovery with you.
In the meantime, I hope you pick up a thing or two from my little cloud!
Why is Cloud Cristina focused on self-care and personal growth?
Spreading myself out too thin and selling myself short were just some of the things I was gravely guilty of in the past. It took me six years’ worth of breakdowns before I realized that self-care isn’t just a luxury, but a necessity. I’ve repeatedly placed my work ethic on a pedestal and continued working on projects without giving a second thought about my well-being.
Even though I sometimes relapse into my old workaholic ways, I’ve recognized the magic of self-care. To save my sanity, I’ve made it a point to take better care of myself. Ever since I’ve prioritized my mental health, I’ve felt more empowered and in control of my life.
As an advocate of intentional living, I’ve made it my mission to help those who want to live their lives on their own terms, especially those who struggle in the self-care department. Whether or not you’re a believer of its magic, this blog has something for you. To start your path towards intentional living, there’s only one decision to be made—choose yourself.
