I don't know if it was lack of focus, time, fear, procrastination, but blogging took a back seat while yet remaining in the back of my mind. I knew it was inevitable. I love sharing my thoughts (and boy do I have'm!) I also love listening and learning from other people. I love observing, specifically on social media. I remember joining social media after putting it off since I was under the impression it was, “a waste of time.” I was wrong.
In 2008, after 'googling' a high school classmate for information, I noticed she was on Facebook. I had to join Facebook in order to connect with her. It wasn't until watching and participating online during the Inauguration of President Barack Obama, that I made my very first Facebook Status (unknowingly and I used all caps because it was ‘the first.’) After receiving a few likes that day, finding old friends, connecting with new associates and networking more using this platform that was all new to me, I realized the power of social media and I knew I wanted to be a part of it. The rest is now history (and I have the statuses, comments, photos shared, thousands of like pages, over 4,000 pins, 45,000 tweets, followers and several other social media accounts to prove it. *laughing* yes, inevitable.)
A few weeks ago I finally began the process to start blogging. After updating my research, I felt as though I'm arriving late to the party. Along with that uncertainty came the ‘first blog publishing jitters.’ What should I write about? The answer became clear and today’s post is a result of my, ‘just doing it!’ … jitters and all.
That’s the message I really want you to see today: “just do it…jitters and all.” You are already prepared. God has already given you everything you need. Yes, you have everything that you need. Therefore, 'just do it...jitters and all!"
In the future, I hope you enjoy the posts and information I share. PLEASE feel free to comment. Enjoy your day and I really look forward to continuing our conversation later.
"Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You cannot get there by bus, only by hard work, risking and by not quite knowing what you are doing. What you will discover will be wonderful: Yourself." -Alan Alda
