Rat Race Running Top 10 Blogs of 2021

Rat Race Running Top 10 Blogs of 2021

Last Updated on May 9, 2022 by Rat Race Running

Though 2021 felt like an extension of 2020, there are still so many lessons to learn this year that I tried to capture in what I write.

There are times when I felt like I wrote something awesome, only to flop with few readerships, save some from our consistent readers.

There are also times when I wrote something hastily to maintain my writing streak, which I thought would not be well received, which to my surprise, performed well.

Indeed, it is impossible to know which post will spark readers’ influence.

So, like what I previously wrote last year, here is a recap of the most-read articles from the Rat Race Running Blog.

I wrote this post because I grew tired of older people asking me when will I get married or why I am still single. I intended to send the link to this post whenever someone asks me about my love life.

Ironically, in just two months, I found the love of my life. It’s funny how a year can change our lives for the better.

After reading Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport, I unfollowed many Facebook friends. I realized that so many people on our friends’ list could trigger our FOMO and make us feel that we are falling behind our peers.

By avoiding seeing other people’s highlight reels, we can relax and focus on the things that truly matter to us.

Stepping into our 30s is a significant milestone for many. It can even put you under immense pressure for some.

However, turning thirty is not as bad as it sounds. Though there are still so many things that I want to do, I give it one day at a time and trust God’s plans. Eventually, I know that things will get better, just like how it happened in the past.
