Hi everyone, and welcome to my blog. I’m super thankful that you’ve decided to join me today.
Before we get into this post, I want to give you a bit of an overview of what I hope to accomplish with this blog. Ever since I was twelve years old, writing has been my saving grace. I went through a great deal of emotional abuse, and writing has helped me through those tough times.
Throughout this blog, I’m going to be sharing my story, my truth, with the hopes of helping those who may have been through what I’ve been through or are going through what I’ve been through. I hope to be a shining light for those who don’t think they can make it through.
The topics I will discuss on this blog are:
- Healing from Past Traumas
- Confidence Building
- Health (Physical and Mental)
Now that all of that is out of the way, let’s jump right into today’s post!
10 Things I Would Like for You To Know About Me!
1) I’ve been blogging for eight years.
I began my blogging journey right after I finished high school. As I mentioned before, writing had been helping me through some rough times. I nervously decided to take my writings to the internet, and I’ve enjoyed every minute of this blogging journey.
I’ve had several blogs before, but I feel that this one will have more meaning, more transparency (which is my goal).
One major thing that I’ve learned during this blogging journey is consistency is key! If you want to grow a blog, business, or whatever you’re working on growing, you have to stay consistent. Also, make sure to be as authentic as possible.
2) My favorite color is pink.
There’s something about the color pink that makes me happy!
3) I’m a wife and mother of two.
My husband and I have been married for almost four years now, and we have two beautiful, energetic children together.
4) I’m a huge Grand Theft Auto fan.
Yes, you read that correctly. I fell in love with the Grand Theft Auto series when I was in elementary school. My first experience playing GTA 3 was mind-blowing. I don’t know what it is about that series, but I’m hooked! I seriously cannot wait for GTA 6.
5) The beach is my happy place.
Sitting on the soft, beige-colored sand staring out into the ocean, listening to the sounds of seagulls, waves crashing against the seashore, laughter, and the wind blowing softly. The sea puts my mind at ease.
6) I cannot sing to save my life, but I enjoy doing it anyway.
My top 4 current favorite songs are:
- “Know You” by Koryn Hawthorne ft. Steffany Gretzinger
- “Something Changed” by Xavier Omar (Soundcloud)
- “Video” by India.Arie
- “Daises” by Katy Perry
7) I enjoy meeting and getting to know new people.
Being able to branch out and meet new people is frightening and exciting at the same time. I wasn’t always so willing to get out there and enjoy social interactions. For years, my fear of rejection resulted in me living in my comfort zone. I would avoid social gatherings like the plague.
After a while, not having a social life was becoming unbearable. It took me some time, but at this current moment, I’m more comfortable with social interactions.
8) I’m currently obsessed with the show “The Resident” on Hulu.
This is such a binge-worthy show!
9) When I’m not feeling my best emotionally, I go on mini road trips with my kids.
There’s something about getting behind the wheel, with no particular destination in mind, music blasting, that calms me down.
10) I’m slowly learning to live more minimalistic.
I HATE clutter! I have grown tired of holding onto items that aren’t useful or wearable. Recently, I decided to go through all of my belongings, pick out everything that I couldn’t wear, or didn’t want anymore and donated those items. Once I got rid of those things, I felt a lot lighter.
So, there you have it! You’ve learned ten things about me. You’ll learn more as I share more, so please subscribe and stay tuned!
Before you go, I was hoping you could share one thing you would like for me to know about you! Have a great day!
