Over the past few years, I have begun to comprehend what I want in life and what makes me happy. One of the greatest skills I have acquired over the past 19 years has been the ability to express myself through words. Writing provides me with a sense of freedom, relaxation, and self-awareness unlike anything else. It has become apart of my daily routine. I have wrestled with the idea of creating a blog since I graduated high school. As I woke up after a night out on New Year’s Day, the thought came to me again. Why haven’t you started a blog? Why was I hesitating and putting it off? If I am being completely transparent it could be due to insecurities, the fear of not producing rich content, and no one being interested in reading my posts. Moments after these thoughts ran through my mind, I couldn’t help but laugh at myself. What was I doing? Who cares if people don’t want to read my posts.
This is the year. Most people create resolutions and stick with them for a few weeks or months before losing the motivation. This year I am choosing to challenge myself to create and upkeep this blog. I have doubts, but I have completed the first step of creating the blog. Now I have the incredible challenge of expressing my thoughts on a regular basis in the form of a blog post. This blog will contain documentation of my adventures, experiences, triumphs, downfalls, and whatever else comes to mind. I am doing this with the hope that it will enrich just one individuals life and push me to go beyond this year. I couldn’t be more excited to see what this year has to hold and have the opportunity to continually see God’s hand in my life.
Cheers to 2018.
