I've been coming to this blog nearly every day for almost a year now. And I could count on two hands how many people I've personally talked to in my everyday life about this space of mine. That doesn't mean that they haven't found it through my
I've always been a people pleaser. I like to make other's happy, and in turn, I'm constantly worrying about what others think. I try to keep up with all the latest fashions so I don't stick out too much. I want to fit in, and I strive to be liked by others. I think part of that comes from being the new kid. When I was 15 I moved from Upstate New York to Oregon. Being the new kid, all I wanted was to make friends and fit in, and I think that sort of stuck. But if I'm constantly trying fitting in, am I ever really truly being myself? This blog brings me so much happiness and is such an awesome outlet for me.
My husband says he can just tell when I truly love something because he can see it in my smile when I talk about it, and that's how I am with this blog. And I want more than anything to turn this blog into something more. I'm a dreamer and hope to continue to grow and share my life. I love the people I've met and the stories I've heard. I want to be proud of this space and be able to share it with other's. But I'm scared. Scared of what people will think, scared of what people will say, afraid that it will change some of my friendships, and nervous about opening myself up to criticism.
But is that what am I really worried about? What could possibly happen if I woke up tomorrow and decided I wanted to not worry about people finding out and I wanted to use all my social media accounts to their full potential? What is it I'm really scared of?
So how long after you started your blog did you share it with your friends and family? How did you get passed being scared of what other people think?
