What Inspired My Blog?

Helene in Between
Today I'm linking up with Sarah and Helene to chit chat about what inspires my blog posts.

Obviously I'm super new to this world, and honestly I'm still learning what inspires me. What I can say with a 100% certainty is that writing gives me a sense of fulfillment like nothing else ever has. 

In the short time I've been blogging I have somehow morphed into a happier person. It's not because I feel like I have anything particularly mind-blowing to say, or that I'm seeking validation(although who am I kidding, it's always nice), but because I've found a great outlet to do what I love. Even if nobody ever read my posts, it gives me a sense of accomplishment, a purpose where I didn't have much of one before.
When I was younger, I filled journals and floppy disks with my thoughts and stories. I always wanted to be an author when I grew up. Am I grown up? Hell no. At the ripe-old age of 26 I'm nowhere near where I thought I would be.

I graduated college and ended up with a receptionist job. I battled depression and felt like a total failure, until I decided I need to make a change. One of the commitments I made to myself was to start writing again. So last month, I did.

I'm learning that I'm still young and I have a lot of growing and learning to do. It's totally fine to be in your 20-s and still trying to figure yourself out. It's really pretty perfect actually, cause what better to write about? It's the stuff of life!
Writing is my therapy. Starting this blog has shown me how invaluable expressing myself is to my personal growth and happiness. It would be wonderful if one day I have 5000 followers, and make some really great friends along the way. But even if nobody ever read my posts, I feel like I'm a better person for writing them.

Much love to ya,

Also- I just claimed my blog on Bloglovin :)


  1. Well this is just plain great. If blogging can make you happier (and I think happiness is the ultimate goal) then this is just wonderful!

  2. If we are supposed to have it all figured out at 26 then I am SCREWED!!! :) Life is a journey, 26 is still in the beginning stages... what is so cool about blogging is that it can help you find out exactly who you are and maybe even who you want to become!
