I am new to WordPress.com
I just thought I would introduce myself to you and make my commitment known to you. What commitment, you ask. That I will keep it real and share what’s closest to my heart.
Why do I blog?
- Because I love writing and as an introvert, it’s the best way to share myself with you
- Because I want to share my passions and triumphs with the world, who knows, I might just save a life or at least inspire someone
I have accomplished a lot in my 30 something years of life. What I count as my greatest achievement is the fact that I can and have overcome adversity. I have experienced hunger and poverty, abuse and bullying, sexual assault and harassment, loss and sickness, name it, I have been through it! I truly am a survivor and I am here to tell the tale.
Why am I blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal? Because when someone reads your personal journal, the way my mom has done over the years, it feels like you have been stripped naked and your truth has just been published without your consent, this way I get to share what I am comfortable sharing and I get to control how much detail I divulge.
What do I want to write about? The books that I am reading, the clothes that I wear, the places I visit, the food I cook, the politics and its effect on my life, the farm life, my spiritual journey, the struggles of being a woman; of being fat; black; dark skinned; bad-skinned; thick skinned; strong yet weak at the same time. I want to share my self-care and self-development journey and to let you know that it is possible.
I would love to connect with like-minded individuals who both share in my struggles and have advanced in their individual journeys to give me inspiration and guidance. I also hope to be of assistance to those who might reach out needing it.
I am putting it out to the universe that I will blog consistently and that I would be a vessel for God to use as He sees fit.
My short term goal is to grow my readership and improve my writing. I hope you will find my content relevant!
