my journey w/ writing
(Read the blog under “About Me” first, and then, come back to this one!)
Dropping out of college and breaking up with my high school sweetheart of four years were two of the biggest life changes for me. I was a scared and anxious eighteen year old when I started blogging. The world around me seemed so large and scary. I felt so small leading up to it all.
When I first started blogging, I wanted a little outlet to get away from everything. I was doing my best to be vulnerable and encouraging. I encouraged myself by encouraging others. I would focus my attention on doing what I could to show kindness and make others feel like they aren’t alone.
My passion grew. I decided to write a memoir of my entire life, “Party Pooper: Growing up with Anxiety”, about a year into blogging. I wanted to put out an entire book about my life’s hardest moments. I have had so many lonely moments. So now, I make it my life goal to be the person I wish I had.
I am not perfect by any means. My life is not always unicorns and rainbows. But I can confidently say, two years later at the age of twenty, I have never been more happy and content with life than I am right now. There is always something to be thankful for. I still have a lot to learn and a lot of places to grow, but now, I have a fire in me to live my life in the best way possible.
Join me on this road of not being so much of a party pooper anymore. This is a place where EVERYONE is loved and appreciated. I am here for each of you.
Without further ado, let’s learn to live different together. (:
