I am doing this.
Do I have any idea what I am doing? Nope.
Don’t run away, though, because I think I might actually have a lot to say! [If you asked my dad or husband, they would vouch for that fact. I've noticed that they aren’t exactly patting me on the back though when referring to my ability to say a lot. . .] Anyways, I have been a blog-stalker [aka follower] for a while now, and Pinterest has led me to MANY new blogs that inspire and entertain me daily! While time is a hot commodity around here these days [and I’m lucky to even go the the bathroom by myself, let alone have time to sit down and write], once upon a time I would have called myself an aspiring writer. [Correction: a writer. I suppose “aspiring” is not fitting since if one wants to write, one can and should write!] So, long story short, blogging seems like an ideal world for me to venture into since I enjoy writing and have plenty to say!
So what do I have to say??
I suppose we could classify this blog as a “lifestyle” blog – I will live my life, you will read about my life [and the obviously awesome thoughts that accompany me living my life.] I will do things [hopefully interesting things] and then tell you all about it. I am not sure if I can offer much expertise about any one particular activity or hobby, but I sure will enjoy trying! As you will soon learn [I hope! Assuming I interest you enough to hang around long enough..], I am interested in, well, everything. I am a dreamer at heart and I tend to bounce around from one “best idea ever!” to another. It keeps life interesting [or insane, chaotic, etc...] and keeps me happy! Some topics I will surely be posting about because they remain constant in my life [among all of the shorter lived interests]:
- My family [married to Will and we have 2 kiddos, Myles (almost 3) and Mia (almost 2 months)]
- Coaching/Dance – Going on 5 years as my local high school’s dance team coach, and I have funny stories to share and maybe even some good ideas
- Clean Living – my family is on a journey to living as “clean and green”-ly as possible. Not easy but it’s the best decision my husband and I have ever made. We feel better, look better, and, well, we ARE better in every way.
- Creativity – scrapbooking, crafting, DIYing, writing, music, dance, etc. It’s all awesome.
- Love and humanity – because I think the world could use some more of it!
So here goes! I already have ideas filling up my exhausted brain that are dying to escape! Can’t wait to start. Just remember I am new at this, so go easy on me. I am sure that with each post, I will read, re-read, erase, start over, start over again, read, ask someone else to read, doubt their opinion, erase again, etc…etc…[I might be exaggerating] But you get the idea. My hope, ultimately, is that this journey and process will help free me of some of that perfectionist-ism and just “la vie bohem” [and write about it!]
[And ok, ok mom, you were right..again... ::sigh:: ..I am very aware that you told me 2 years ago to start a blog. I guess it just had to feel like my idea. ]
One final thought to leave you all with:
“The mind is everything. What you think, you become.”
Who do you want to become? What are you going to think about to get there? Hmmm..
