I’m going to jump right in–I CAN’T WAIT TO SHARE YOUR STORIES! I thought of this blog idea while I was finishing up my last few assignments in my college career. I was sitting on my bed pondering what I should do with my bachelor’s degree that I was going to earn, the degree I paid thousands of dollars for, didn’t get any sleep for, and produced the most stress for me. As I sat there, trying to remember how to calculate marketing expenses for a business, I became very unsure about my future. I had my brain telling me all sorts of things, things that were rational, unrealistic, not exciting, and more. I could use my business degree and find a desk job around my city somewhere. I could work with my dad at his business. I could try to find an in at a company where a family member works. I could simply continue working my college job and babysitting, giving me the flexibility to travel. I could do absolutely nothing. I could move to another state and find a job that I somewhat care about. I could find a boyfriend. I could be more outgoing. I could not let fear control my life. I could buy better clothes. I could be more confident. I could, I could, I could. At that moment, I realized that I was living my life with a whole lot of “what if’s” that I let control my life and how I choose to live it. Where is my sense of optimism? Where is my sense of adventure? Where is my sense of confidence? Where is my sense of passion? How can I live life in a way that is inclusive to optimism, adventure, confidence, and passion while also combating the fear of failure, fear of being alone and so much more that is controlling my life?
The answer was right in front of me the entire time–literally at the tip of my fingers as I write my final college paper. Use my curiosity in writing, social media, business, music, sports and more to unite people in the simplest yet most effective ways–start a blog.
So, in the midst of all this uncertainty in my life, this idea popped into my brain. This one idea was the only thing that I knew was for certain and knew that I would enjoy. Though I still have to face the realities of figuring out what to do with my life and where my path shall go, I know that this blog will be my happy place. A place where my passion can encourage others to share their passion.
