“You inspire me. Your hard work, tenacity, and optimism in absolutely contagious.”

 

Those words were said to me by someone who should be receiving those words from ME. Someone who I go to for advice, validation, consolation. But she said them to me. Me? Inspiring? I’m a chronically single 25-year-old perfectionistic CrossFit addict who cares a little too much about what others think.  I work too much, give too much of myself to others, have a messy car and room, and am recovered from Anorexia.  What about all of that is inspiring? I suppose that’s for me to try and figure out…

 

It has been my dream to have a blog that I post to regularly.  Keyword: ON THE REGULAR. Ever since I can remember, I have loved keeping a journal.  When I was younger, I wanted to be an author.  I wrote constantly.  But, it never failed, I always abandoned my pieces of writing, journals, and blogs shortly after I started them.

Ready for the cliche? It’s almost a new year. 2013. It is my New Years Goal to consistently write on this blog.  Will I fail? Yes. Will I sometimes post more than twice a week.  Absolutely. But one thing is for sure, it will be one crazy journey. I can feel it.

So here’s to new blog beginnings, being inspiring (?), and figuring out myself.
