I feel so much pressure writing this first post. I’ve wanted to start a blog for so long, and now that I actually got the nerve to do it, I just want to go curl up in my bed, shut my eyes, be dramatic, and pretend that it never happened. I have no idea what I am doing here. I just knew that beginning this process has been a goal of mine for a long time…Plus I paid for this URL, and if that’s not motivation to begin amongst confusion and chaos, I don’t know what is.
When I tell people I want to write a book or start a blog, the first question is, “What do you want to write about?” Fair question…but I have yet to give a solid answer. I just knew that one day I wanted to start a blog, and one day I want to write a book. (Here is to holding me accountable, folks.) You see, I have so much I want to talk about, but I want to be very deliberate with how I go about using my words. Maybe this isn’t the right forum for me to address all of these random topics, but I don’t know another way. So if you are at all intrigued, let’s begin this rough journey together.
My blog will contain any and all that matters to me. And I hope somewhere along the way, you find something amidst this nonsense that matters to you too.
I want to discuss light topics like interior decorating, traveling, good books, what it’s like living with a lovable-asshole dog, ideas for self-care, fitness, home ownership, spirituality, millennials, dating in your 20s (when I’m ready to start dating again, I’m sure I’ll have good stories).
But more importantly,
I plan on discussing some pretty uncomfortable topics. Creating this blog was hard for me, but the most significant challenge throughout this adventure will be unscrambling all that is me. The good, the bad, the ugly…Mental health, addiction, finances, failures, sexual assault, domestic violence, heartbreak, loss, excuses, secrets, what it’s like being 27 trying to figure out how life works…
Here’s the thing-
I’m going to relate to you on some level. And it’s going to be completely different for every person. I just hope you stick around to figure out how your life and mine are more alike than either of us thought.
