Why I Started Blogging

I hope everyone has been having a good start to their year! J I actually did not know what blogging was until I stumbled upon a video on YouTube. From there I looked more into it and realized it was something I would be interested in. I started my blog with Blogger on March 11th, 2014. I am still fairly new to the blogging world but I really do enjoy it. In 9th grade I wrote a poem called A Dream. My teacher told me that I should write more and I did. She would have us to do different writing prompts and she always told me how interesting my prompts were. My poem was published through Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans. Unfortunately I was not able to purchase the book it was inL. Once I find it I will gladly upload it. I decided to start a blog because I love to write and I have a lot to say. I feel like I may teach someone something, or someone could be going through something I’m going through. I just want to be heard. There is a lot on my mind and in my heart that I don’t mind expressing with others. Writing has been a little getaway for me. I am a soft spoken person and writing makes me feel like I’m bigger than what I think I am. Writing makes me feel like David in the Bible. All he had was faith, a sling, and a rock and he made a believer out of everyone.  My blog makes me feel powerful, like my voice matters in the world. And plus, I like to talk surprisingly, so I think it makes sense that I like to write. Right? ;-) Hope you enjoyed my little rant.

Change Is Coming

Happy New Year everyone!! It has been a long time since I written a post. Let's get to it..

My fiancé has introduced me to this amazing book by Amy Sharp called How to Change The Way You Think. I love this book and have read it twice now. I have been struggling with depression, and self hate for a long time. I overthink, sometimes I act without thinking and it makes the people I love and care about think that I don't care. As far as depression, I have talked to therapists, been on medication, kept a journal, you name it I tried it. It's almost as if I spent most of my life sad and feeling sorry for myself. I can't stress enough how real depression is and how hard it is for me even now to deal with. But anyway...... This book was kind of a reality check for me. Basically what I got from this book is if you want to be happy, be happy. But sometimes it isn't that easy, but it really is! I have a beautiful three year old daughter and a wonderful fiancé, so why not be happy? Change is scarey for me, I'm not gonna lie. Me and my little family recently moved into an apartment. After 24 years of living with my grandmother, I wanted to move but I was nervous. I was worried that my daughter would have a hard time adjusting to our new place but she was beter than I was!

I know that as a person I have a lot to work on. I have so many plans and so much I want me and my family to do but my mind has to be in the right spot. Even though I'm 24, sometimes I just do not feel like a woman. But then again, I know who I am and what I stand for. I know what I want out of life and the things I want to accomplish. I look at each day as a learning opportunity. Everyday I try to be better than who I was the day before. I have a little one looking up to me. I simply want to be great and with the love and support from my little family I will be able to acheive my personal goals and just flourish.

Again, Happy New Year and be safe.
