So I started a blog….
I’ve been sitting here for days staring at a blank page on this screen and thinking. How would I start this journey? I’ve gone back and forth on the idea of starting a blog for years, but I’ve always been terrified. How would I pick a theme for topics that I could stay with for a long period? How would I keep myself motivated to keep writing every week? What if my first post was horrible and I looked back years later and couldn’t believe that was the first thing I’d ever posted on my blog.
Then it dawned on me- it doesn’t matter what the first thing I post is.
This blog doesn’t need any theme other than my life and my struggles and story. This is simply a way for me to get my ideas and frustrations and experiences out there in hopes that someone can learn from my mistakes or relate to me when they thought they were completely alone. I don’t have to write on any one topic, because life isn’t filled with one sole topic. And if this post makes me cringe looking back at it in 10 years, that’s alright. I can see how much I’ve grown as a person and a writer from today forward.
I’ve also realized that this blog is for me. Yes, it’s public and for the world to see, but it honestly is a way to get every struggle I’ve had in life out of my system and rid my life of this toxicity. I’m done being afraid to put myself out there and this is my way of doing that.
I hope you all enjoy joining me on this journey and can learn something from where I’ve come from and where I’m going.
Enjoy the ride and live life with no regrets.
