First Post, First Step

This is it. Today is the day. It is finally time for me to stop being afraid of the outcome of this blog. It’s time for me to stop worrying that I’ll be judged for starting something like this. It’s time for me to realize that I need to finally start the blog that I’ve been dreaming about.

The “about me” section lays out my vision and inspiration for starting a blog. So in this post I won’t get too much into that. In a nut shell, as a university student I find that I have more responsibilities in life. At times these responsibilities stress me out, and they end up consuming me from being able to see the smaller things in life. These small things that make me stop and realize that life is worth living.

For weeks I have been making excuses about starting a blog. Excuses like: “I’m too busy,” “exams are coming up,” or “I’ll just wait and start in the summer.” It didn’t take until today to realize that I was just afraid to put myself out there and try something new.

Lesson #1: In order to make a difference in the world, and to make yourself happy, you need to put yourself out there. Do not be afraid of the rejection, be excited for the outcome.

Today I told myself to put on my big girl pants and take the first step of starting a blog that I have wanted to for a year now. Moments pass, day by day, and I always think to myself “wow, that would have been a great topic to discuss on my blog today.” I want to eliminate that thought from happening again, because as of today my blog is officially open for business.

If you keep up with me you’ll start to see posts about my everyday encounters with life. I plan to break down the situations and speak about them in a perspective that will make my readers think and inspire them to go out and do. I want the simple things in life to stop going by unnoticed.

For me, this blog is about looking my life’s daily encounters, and bringing fourth joy and inspiration to an audience of people who are willing to listen. 

My name’s Olivia, but my friends call me Liv. This is me about to take the first step of my blogger journey in order to live my life to the fullest.
