This has been 10 years in the making. In a world where I’m sure hundreds of thousands of people decide to start blogs, I have finally decided to jump in and try it as well. For the past decade, fear of rejection, lack of time, and outright excuses have kept me from starting this blog; however, at 27 years old with a new career, new marriage, and new adventures ahead of me, I realized there is no better time than the present.
So, what exactly will this blog be about? The answer is simple: anything and everything. People have encouraged me to find a “niche” or a “specific focus” to increase my chances of success, but that’s just not my personality. I’m curious and intrigued by so many topics that affect a person’s everyday life that I just don’t think I can limit myself that way. This blog will feature healthy eating, wellness, relationships, entertainment, travel, and all around adventure. It will feature written blogs, videos, pictures, guest bloggers, and anything and everything I can think to incorporate.
At 27 years old, I realized I am technically a full-fledged adult (and have been for more than a few years now), but sometimes I don’t FEEL like one. I don’t always know if I’m doing this right. I look at other people’s social media and their perfect pictures with their selfies in just the right filter and their lives seemingly together, and as I still struggle with figuring out which jewelry would go with my outfit I feel totally overwhelmed and inadequate. I’m sure there are others who feel just like me, so I thought this blog would be the perfect way for us to share in this journey together.
I’ll start by telling you a little bit about myself. I’m 27 years old, I have a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (but I still don’t always feel qualified enough to tell people that), I got married and bought a house last year, and I’m struggling with finding the balance in everything. I love family, the beach, and many would say I have an unhealthy relationship with Disney (but what do they know?!). I have a past full of mistakes and embarrassments, and as I grow this blog and add topics and discussions, those will continue to become apparent. I’m still a little too scared of vulnerability to “put it all out there.” But hey, no one is perfect, right?
Thanks for letting me open myself up and taking this journey with me! I’m excited to share this with the world and I hope that people can gain support, hope, and understanding throughout this blog.
Until the next journey,
