Welcome to my brain.*cough cough* I mean my blog, (But they’re pretty much the same thing)
If you know me, you know that I tend to be a pretty private person. If you don’t ask, I won’t tell (most of the time). It’s very hard for me to open up sometimes. I struggle with letting people in. I love to write. I’ve filled journals with all my crazy thoughts.
However, I don’t always want people to read what I write because I’m afraid they’ll judge me or silently correct my grammar or something. (It’s actually a really stupid fear now that I think about it…) That’s why it took me a LONG time to convince myself to start a blog. The truth is, I’ve wanted to do this for years, but, I had so many doubts… Like..
“Who would even want to read it?”
“I’m not even a very good writer….”
“Literally everyone has their own blog these days… If I were to start one that would just make me stereotypical……”
Well, guess what….. That, my friends, is a bunch of crap. I was feeding myself lies and setting myself up for failure before I even started. Yes, this whole thing could end up not working out the way I hope it will, It may not be a HUGE success at first. But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to try.
You never know what you can accomplish until you push aside all the negative thoughts that are telling you, you can’t or shouldn’t do something. I found this amazing quote the other day that really hit home.
“Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.”
So, this is it guys, welcome to my blog… Just a little dream I had that I’m working to make into a reality.
I want to use this to uplift and encourage others, be a light, express myself, and write about things that really matter.
I believe in being real. I’m not perfect, no one really is, so what’s the point in pretending like we are? My goal is to be genuine. I want to write about life, REAL life. My experiences, my failures, my victories, fears, hopes, dreams, faith, everything that has made me into the person I am today.
I want others to know that they are not alone. We’re all just doing the best we can, so let’s be unapologetically authentic. No sugar-coating.
I hope you will join me on this journey!
Until next time!
