I’m back! Well, I’ve actually always been here I just haven’t been blogging. Can you guess why? Lack of time? Life getting in the way? No material? Actually, none of those. OK, maybe a couple of those but a lot more too. Honestly, I got in my own way. Once I started this blog I got really excited about it. I was so into it I started reading about how to do it better. I found all sorts of material out there; books on how to make money blogging, lots of other bloggers and plenty of websites. Problem is I found so much out there, so many other people already doing it and in my opinion doing it better that I assumed I just couldn’t compete with that and I quit. Have you been there?
I guess I’m not big on competition. Typing this though I’m realizing that that is exactly why I started this to begin with. Not because I wanted to compete but because I wanted to offer a competition-free zone for my thoughts. It’s the same reason I named my fitness business Real Life Fitness. Real life doesn’t always look the way it’s presented to us out in the world, on social media or just in what people show you. I’ve never been into that. I am who I am and if you don’t like it so what?
That’s not always very easy though, is it? I truly believe we need all the help and support we can get just to remind each other that it’s perfectly ok just to be you. Think your thoughts, speak your mind, live your life. Be you! Because you know what? There’s probably someone else out there who loves who you are and wishes they could be just like you because it’s really just like them too.
So, I might not ever make money doing this or be the best blogger out there but I might just resonate with someone else out there who needs to hear what I have to say. And even though it scares me to put myself out there and I fear that I’ll fail by trying and not just by giving up I am doing it anyway. Sometimes you just have to do it anyway. Even though you’re scared. Even though you think no one will think like you. Even when you think no one is listening. Even if you’re afraid you might fail. Do it anyway!
