“I think I want to start blogging.”
That’s how it started. Well actually, no… I’m lying. It started in my head. Then I sent the text message.
Something that most people don’t know about me: I love to write. When I was in Grade 7, I wrote a short story that ended up being 16 pages typed. My teacher accepted it, then took me aside before our next story assignment to politely ask me to keep it to 4 pages typed. Whoops.
I would spend hours as a young teen in front of the computer… And I wasn’t playing video games. I was writing. I couldn’t tell you what any of those stories said… they are long gone, never to be shared with anyone.
Recently, I’ve made some HUGE changes in my world (more on those later) and I realized something; I miss writing. I miss how writing makes me feel. I miss the feeling of content and release after writing something that I’m proud of. So that brings me to today. This brilliant plan to start blogging.
So, I’m driving to work this morning and I have a brain wave. Blogging. I feel like I have a lot to say. About everything. And, like most people, I think my opinion is one that everyone should listen to, or read, or whatever. Anyway, back to my morning. I’m making the long commute to my job (10 minutes, haha) and I have this overwhelming feeling to share my brilliant blogging idea with a good friend of mine. This friend is a blogger as well and she offers mental bootcamp courses online. She has taught me how to trust my own energy and believe in myself and trust my intuition and all that cool stuff.
So I send the text. “I think I want to start blogging.”
“Cool. What are you going to write about?”
Ummm…. what? What do you mean, what am I going to write about? Do bloggers actually think about that? Turns out they do. My response to this question; everything. I’m going to blog about everything. My life is busy. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t have it any other way, but it is busy. I’m always going in ten different directions and my trials and tribulations are sometimes noteworthy. If you’ve read this much, I thank you. I also invite you to take this journey with me and see where it leads. Who knows, maybe I’m on to something 😉
One thought on “The Journey Begins”
Good for you! I have also just started blogging. It can be very therapeutic. Like you, I also feel that I have a lot to say. Maybe we both are on to something. 🙂 I will continue you reading. Can’t wait!
