My First Blog Post….My Why

I have an obsession with notebooks. I love stationery. So, why? Why blog publicly rather than in a personal journal? Simple. I don’t want to. I don’t get satisfaction out of keeping my feelings to myself. So, if you’re reading this…thank you.

Connection. Sounds silly that I’m typing my feelings into the ass end of a website in hopes to connect with others, but I am! This space will not be the highlight reels. This space will be authentic. This space is a safe place to be vulnerable. This space speaks truth. What you read is what you get.

Self reflection. Yes, I want to look back a year from now and have a record of my accomplishments AND my struggles. Much like the Facebook memories feature, I love going back in time. I’m sure my blog will evolve over time, just like I do, and I want to be able to look back. Has life got too complicated? Do I need to go back to the basics? Let’s take a look back and see…..

Compartmentalization. I don’t view this as negative. I personally use it as a tool. A coping mechanism. It helps me be mindful and present. This space is a place I can put my thoughts and bullshit to bed at night. This girl needs her beauty sleep, okay!

Finally….why not? It’s my business. I do me.

Aaaaannnnndddddd……if you’re still here. Thank you. I love you. Well? Maybe I just like you, but either way…I hope you stay.

More of MY WHY can be found in the “About Me” section of the blog. Check it out, if you want. If not, that’s cool too.
