A blog is something I have wanted to start for a long time, I have always loved to write and I have been entertaining the idea for many years, but I was scared. Not scared to share my story that is something I have never had any problem doing, I was scared of the blog not being perfect.
For as long as I can remember I have had a fear of doing something wrong, whether it be at home, at school or else where I always felt as though making a mistake was never an option. This trait can be particularly hard on someone who is the biggest klutz in the world and doesn't really over excel at anything.
This fear comes from a combination of pressure put on me by other people and pressure I put on myself, so naturally when this idea popped into my head about five years ago and pretty much everyday since then I talked myself out because I didn't think I could make it perfect.
Fast forward to now, I am proud to say I am a completely different person than I was five years ago, heck I'm a completely different person than I was six months ago. That is the journey I am going to be sharing with you through my posts, my journey to embracing my imperfections and the idea that once you accept those things about yourself they can be used to empower you. I wanted my first post to share where I stand today, but I realized that it changes daily and who I am today doesn't make sense without the backstory of where I came from.
This is what I will say, I definitely march to the beat of my own drum, I am an introvert in a lot of situations, but give me a pen and some paper, show me that you are really listening to me or turn on some good country music and I am as extroverted as they come. I am a bit nerdy I love reading and just being outside, I love to travel, I am as loyal as the come to anyone or anything that I care about, I am not athletically inclined but I will always try and I firmly believe in doing things that set my soul on fire, even if they don't make sense to anyone else. The biggest thing about the person that I am right now is that I am more confident and my heart is more open than its ever been to the experiences that lie ahead. It took me a long time to get to this place and it is still very new but, I'm the person I want and need to be at this point in time and there is no better feeling.
The reason I wanted to start this blog five years ago is still the reason I'm starting it now I want to share my story in hopes that it will help someone else.
I hope you'll continue reading as I keep turning the pages of my story and walking the path of the journey that lies ahead.
