I think a big part of it for me is that sometimes I feel like I am writing all these things down for nobody to really read. It's like a really sad diary entry (hahaha) and I often come to my blog to see that no one has commented on a post that I thought was just perfect for my blog.
I suppose the good thing is that every time this happens I end up with the same end result. That being, I enjoy blogging. Even if nobody was reading this blog, I like documenting the exciting things that happen in my life. I never seem to be able to keep up with a journal or anything and to me, a blog is a way to keep track of all of my adventures.
Some days I look back at past posts and see how I've changed over the years, and also how proud I am of all I've accomplished. I feel beyond happy with my life. I've travelled so much, I've been with my amazing boyfriend for almost 6 years (omg) and I couldn't be happier with our relationship, I have an extremely fulfilling job that I love going to every day, I have incredible and close relationships with my family, and I live my life exactly how I want to, in a positive way.
I do think it's hard not to get caught up in this whole blogging world and compare yourselves to other bloggers who you read about, and try to be as "successful" or popular as them. I've also come to realize (hence the photo above) that people's lives aren't always as perfect as they make them seem. Anyone can create an account on instagram that gives people the idea that they live the most perfect life. I am proud to say that I truly think that my blog, instagram and all social media outlets really reflect exactly how I am IRL.
I am excited to blog some really awesome things, and really appreciate anyone who chooses to read what I write about! I want to continue to grow as a blogger, writer and woman and hope to inspire people along the way.
Let's not forget why we blog and what it actually means to us. For me it helps to express myself, share ideas, spread happiness and positivity, and inspires me to DO MORE! Go on more adventures, plan more trips, see more things and document the best and most exciting things in life.
I feel so lucky!
Life is good, and you can bet your sweet ass that I am going to blog about it.
