Where To Begin?

Three years ago I created a blog, and was eager to begin documenting the journey my husband and I were about to embark on. We had just closed on our first home, a short sale fixer- upper with lots of potential, but lots of work. Fast forward to today, and that same blog has sat empty, no post, no life, no excitement for three years. To be honest, I hadn't even visited the page until yesterday. Three years? Why had I waited so long? I thought about the empty page often, as I read other inspiring stories from countless talented bloggers. I thought about how badly I wanted to to be creative, inspiring, and honest. So why wait until today to start? Good question.

Getting started is the hardest part. Taking that first step. putting yourself out there to be vulnerable for others to see. What if I'm not as creative, inspiring, and honest as the others. What if no one reads? So, I let the question of where to begin, and self doubt hold me back for so long. But today that changes. We all have a story to tell, and we all have something to give. So here it goes, today I start to give what I have to offer. I have come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter if there are no followers, because that is not the reason I write. I will write for my own enjoyment, and just maybe, someone will gain something out of it as well.

What will i write about? I will write about life. What drives us, what we are struggling with, and of course the things that make me happy. So, welcome to Life Happens Here. Life is happening all around us as we speak. Are you soaking it in? You should be. Take advantage of every opportunity there is. And if you have been waiting to tap into your passion, don't. Start today!
