Bienvenue a le nouveau blog

My class ring from St. Edward's University in Austin, Texas. 

I've been going back and forth. Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth.  Back and forth between whether my writing is well worth sharing with others.  Back and forth between whether the writing I have to share now doesn't measure up with the expectations of my past writing (for those who read it).

I've always been self-conscious about my writing.  I am notorious for gabbing about how I am a terrible writer and cannot tell you why a semi-colon coulda shoulda woulda been in a sentence (really, though).  I've basically been making excuses for too long about something that I have desperately been wanting to do.  Reading blogs is something that is part of my daily ritual.  Is that sad? Nah, we'll call it a millennial thing. I wake up and among checking Twitter and my e-mail I open up my favorite blogs which include: two healthy living blogs, a mommy blog, a home DIY blog, and a quarter-life crisis blog.  All really popular blogs with their own domain and advertising, nothing amateur like this or anything.  A part of me wants my blog to become popular like that.  Why not, right?! I've got to start somewhere and with a purpose.  If I got paid for writing, sharing, and inspiring others to live their best life and did that multiple times a day on a regular basis...well wouldn't that be FABULOUS?!

A girl can dream. But, excuse me I am getting off topic.  Let me apologize in advance for my ADD in my writing.  I was on... going back and forth.  You see, the last time I posted on this blog  I was a junior in college.  I am well into post-grad life and looking back at my previous posts (which are not deleted, just hidden) I don't identify as that girl anymore.  I'd love to unhide them at some point when I am well into writing again, but for now I think I will keep them hidden. 

So here goes something.  I'd love to share with you the positivity that still gets me going every day, and inspire you through what I learn as I enjoy my process of becoming.  Thank you for giving my writing a chance.
