Well, here it is! I decided several years ago that starting a blog was something that I wanted to do. I’ve been told so many times that I need to be sharing my DIY projects, my recipes and my love for home decor with the world, but something has always been holding me back.
I could make an excuse or two and blame it on not enough time or lack of inspiration but the truth has always been that I am afraid. There are so many interesting blogs out there, shared by people who are way more creative and talented than I am. And that’s true. But that’s not the only truth.
The lesson here is that fear is something that I am imposing on myself, no one else is doing that. I’m afraid that no one will find me interesting or that I’ll run out of things to do or say that are “good enough” to share.
But I started realizing that how I really felt was that I needed somewhere, or something to truly challenge me to be more creative in my life. I needed a little push in that direction and once I discover that need inside of me to be creative, it didn’t really matter who reads what I have to say, or goes out and buys a lip gloss because I tell them it’s the best one I’ve tried. What matters is that I used my words and my voice to produce something unique because it came from me, and no one else.
So thanks for being a part of this journey with me and hopefully you will be inspired to be just a little bit more creative in your life too.
What’s something you’ve always told yourself you were going to try, even if you failed?
