Well, to be honest I did not think that I would get this far. One month of blogging every single day. The time, the dedication, the commitment… I am freaking proud of myself. I thought that blogging was going to be something that I would lose interest and give up after one or two weeks of doing it. Wow was I ever wrong. In the one month that I have been blogging, I have grown tremendously as a person. I have discovered more about myself that I had over the last four years of life. So with that said, happy one month blog anniversary to my beautiful blog.
Like I said in yesterday’s post, blogging has been one of the best things that I have done for myself. There are three main reasons that I have found a love for blogging. The main reason is because blogging has been a great way for me to express my emotions and share what is going on in my life. As a person who deals with depression, anxiety, and an eating disorder, I constantly have a lot of thoughts on my mind. Sometimes, there are just too many thoughts going on for me to think clearly. I often panic and can’t relax because of the fear that takes over. With blogging, I am able to write my emotions without having to worry about being judged. I get to be me, share what is going on in my head, and reflect on my life. If people like what I write, then great. If they don’t, well then they don’t. It’s that easy.
The second reason that I like blogging is because it challenges me to think deeply. We have already covered the fact that I want to blog everyday for 365 days. That is 365 days of coming up with new topics to blog about. I don’t have 365 ideas off of the top of my head. So, I have to truly dig deep and find what matters to me the most. I have to find ideas that I want to spend time thinking about and then ultimately sharing with the world.
The third reason is because I wanted to find something and stay committed to it. I have been known as a person who flakes on plans. Why? Because I would let my anxiety and eating disorder stand in the way of me making memories with the people that matter the most. It was almost as if I forgot how to stay committed to something and more importantly, to myself. With blogging, I have regain so much confidence in myself that you know what, I can actually achieve what I put my mind to. For me, this was very much needed.
So I just want to thank everyone. If you have read one post, two posts, or just one title, thank you. Just thinking about the fact that my blog might be helping people has motivated me that much more to not give up. It has taught my to chase my dreams and stay committed to what I value in life. Everything works out for a reason, all we have to do is believe in ourselves. So again, happy one month blogversary.
