For years I’ve wanted to start a blog. I told myself over and over it would happen one day. Then I realized that nothing happens on it’s own. If there’s something that I want to do, I’ve learned that its only going to happen if I make it happen.
Over the past few years, I’ve made a lot of changes in my life. Some came easy- others not so much. But the best changes are ones that are done deliberately and with care. They aren’t the ones that happen overnight, and they aren’t always easy. A little over a year ago, I decided that I would start doing more of the things I loved the most. In order to have more time for those things, it makes sense that I would have to stop doing the other things that filled my time and used my money.
I stopped breaking my budget. I took care of most of my debt. I stopped overfilling my schedule. And now I can say that I’m planning my days based on the things I’m most passionate about. I’ve started planning trips and fun days with my kids, and I’ve made more time for my hobbies. I’ve turned my life inside out, and now I never want it to go back to the way it was before.
I realized recently that if I don’t start blogging now, I never will. For years I thought that I didn’t have anything to say, but what’s better than writing about the unfiltered, grittiness of life?
