So, I like to write. I write a lot, and people have been trying to get me to start a blog for some time. At first the idea intrigued me, but what would I write? What is it I want to share with the world? Andrew said what I post on my FB page is entertaining enough, but I already do that on FB. What would be the purpose of this new thing?
Tonight a new friend mentioned I should start a blog. Then when I got home I had a message from someone else, same idea. The universe keeps telling me. I’m thinking I should listen.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and writing about change, about trusting people, and about comfort. There aren’t many people I share with or trust. Frankly, people scare me. I want to get out of my comfort zone though and step into a new one. However, that means doing what I’m scared of. If doing what I’ve always done gets me what I’ve always had and I don’t want that, I must do something else. But the things I don’t do I avoid because they’re scary. So, to get to the comfort, I need to make myself uncomfortable. Share even though it’s scary and means I might get hurt. Keep sharing when I do. Go places I don’t normally go. Talk to people. Eat new foods. Wear new colors. Say yes to things that make me nervous and no to things that make me mad. The ultimate exposure assignment. And share the experience. Gosh, it’s scary but exciting.
So, the purpose of this new thing is to share what I normally don’t, to take a chance, and to write along the journey towards happiness.
- I got out of my house.
- Shared very personal writing with someone new, even though it made me really nervous.
- Met a friend from FB.
- Danced with someone I don’t know and really enjoyed it.
- Ordered something new.
- Let myself feel happy.
- Started a blog.
Thank you to Sacha and Traci and Andrew. Let the blogging begin. :)
