I can’t believe I’m here. I’ve been blogging for two years, and this is the best decision that I’ve made. It baffles me how I let timidity keep me from doing something that I’d end up loving. Writing has always been a passion of mine, since I was a five year old with a marble notebook and a big imagination.
I thought what I feared was making things about myself, then not connecting with or holding the attention of my audience. However, I think my trepidation was caused by realizing my dreams. Blogging about my journey is really just a stepping stone, and to commit meant potentially facing failure. That isn’t something that many of us are comfortable with.
So on my second bloggiversary, I am celebrating growing a pair. I have rooted myself in a mission and not strayed from that, instead I have fortified it. Everyday is a struggle to not let perfectionism win, and when I reflect on my original mission, I see that I am winning and I’m okay. My blog isn’t about my wealth or my body or what I have that others may not. It is about embracing life’s journey, while simultaneously maintaining mental, physical, and spiritual fitness along the way.
What to Expect for the Next Year:
- A newsletter! Stay tuned-I’ll hit you guys with something weird and wonderful in your inboxes.
- Expanding my journalistic voice outside of the blogosphere
- More continents! I am always planning my next trip, and I have some exotic adventures up my sleeve
- Collaborations of course!
