Gotta start somewhere....

Hello reader,
I first had the idea to start a blog at the beginning of the year but never really put much effort into actually making it happen. For me this wasn't some type of cliche New Years resolution thing. It's more so a simple tool for me to use to better myself in every aspect that one can improve on. Could I have kept a private diary of some sort? Sure. But there's something about putting it all out there for an  audience that really gives me that extra nudge to keep going and to do whatever it is that I say I am going to do. I'm a firm believer of speaking things into existence. I wasn't always this way though. I used to keep every single piece of my life extremely private and in all honesty, for the most part I still do. You would think that there was nothing wrong with living your life in such a way but over the years I have come to realize that keeping every detail to myself be it good or bad has actually stifled my emotions and communication skills. It's something I've struggled with for as long as I can remember and it's something that I am eager to conquer. So here I am, yet another individual who has decided to start a blog. LOL. What sets me apart from the rest is at this very moment is probably the fact that I don't necessarily have a theme for this blog. I could write about motherhood, beauty, love, hardships, and so much more. I'm just going to go with the flow and see what happens. This post in particular is all over the place in my opinion. I'm quite multifaceted and it's one of my most favorite traits. I would really love to be able to share my different layers with you all. My hope is that by me sharing my dreams, fears, stories from my past, present, and anything else in between with you is that you'll be empowered and motivated to do what it takes to just press forward in positivity. It will be interesting to look back on this very post a year from now and see how much I've blossomed. I'm in a very good place right now overall and I don't have much to complain about. I'm assuming that some of the first people that read this and follow me will be friends so feel free to critique me or send any ideas my way. I'll end with this, I am a little shy to share this on FB because it's not exactly perfect but I'm also excited to just get started. So here we go! Thanks for reading and I hope you come back for the next post :)
