I have been successfully running this blog for 2 years now, and it feels like I just started. For a moment of transparency, I created this blog to bring motivation, encouragement and hope…for myself. Yes, I was the in need of inspiration and hope, because I had lost mine. Essentially, I turned my journal into a blog, because I was tired of locking my feelings up in a NOTEbook! It was my way of crying out, and hoping maybe, that someone would take notice and save me. I didn’t realize how many people needed saving themselves, until I created this platform to allow my voice to be heard, and your pain to be soothed. I don’t always feel like writing, but I continue, because I just know someone is being impacted by my words and experiences, as they attempt to overcome their own. Admittedly, I obsessed over numbers, because I felt I didn’t have enough ‘followers’, but what I had more than anything, was an outlet and safe space to be my true, authentic self. I knew I was opening myself up to exposure, criticism and potentially negative comments, but I didn’t care. I was just happy to no longer be behind closed doors. I’ve never considered myself an open book, and I still don’t think I am (entirely, at least). However, I THANK YOU for reading my story, and maybe one day, you’ll be able to share your own!
Until next time my NOTE takers!
