Truthfully, I didn’t know how I wanted to approach this first post. Did I want to start off with the day my world got wrecked? Or did I want to talk about how things are now? There’s so many things I want to say, so many things I need to say but it’s always easier said than done.
I actually had a different blog at first, but I really didn’t stick to it. It was great for a while but then I became engulfed with so many other things I needed to prioritize first. I eventually just didn’t have the energy or time to write. I missed it, a lot. But it did bring me a lot of comfort and relief knowing I had somewhere safe to release all my emotions and feelings, always has.
Writing has always been a passion, a sense of therapeutic relief for me, so having a blog makes perfect sense. Oddly enough though, I’m not much of a reader! Although, I do enjoy a good novel, writing has always been my number one. From jotting down personal thoughts, random ideas, dreams, and even fictional stories, heck, even research papers, I love it all.
At first I thought I wanted to keep this blog private like I did my last one, but I talked myself out of it. I want people to be able to read how my life has changed. I want my family to be able to see how much my life has changed. I feel like it’s important to tell my story, no matter how many people it may reach. Whether it be five people, five hundred people, maybe no one is even reading this, I still want people to know that things DO get better, no matter how hard they seem.
