One of the reasons I started blogging was because I was tired of hounding my friends with essays and essays of my untamed thoughts at unfair hours of the morning. I needed an outlet, one that would neither sleep nor slumber, documenting all the ways I expose and confront my truth.
I wanted my blog to be a quiet place that I’d entrust with the most intricate parts of me for safe keeping. So as I do with most things in my life, I didn’t give this decision too much thought … I woke up one day, and before I knew it, I was confirming a new account I’d set up on WordPress.
A few days later, my first blog post was published…
It’s been quite an incredible journey of self-discovery. This blog has become a portfolio and my most favoritest thing about myself. Sometimes I come online and just stare at it with the greatest pride. Blogging has given me so much and I’m grateful for my random unplanned start because it’s birthed and rewarded me with more than just a career but what I truly believe to be my life purpose.
