Musician, Singer, Artist, Writer, Poet, Photographer, Dancer, Dreamer, Explorer, Traveler. That is what I am.
Creative, loyal, happy, care-free, independent, goofy, thoughtful, upbeat, active, gentle, witty…with a melancholy, dark side. That is who I am.
Several years ago I had decided that I was going to lead an ‘unconventional’ life. A life where I made the rules. A life that allowed me the FREEDOM in pursuing my dreams and goals despite what the rest of society thought. I’ve chosen a path that is entirely my own.
Honestly, it has never occurred to me to do otherwise. I see no reason why I should simply go with the flow of the rest of the world, working at a job I don’t enjoy, and going down a path that discourages things I love to do, such as music, traveling, making art, and writing on this blog.
So why did I start this blog?
All my life since I was 6, I have been journaling. I’ve journaled for over 13+ years and it’s fun to look back on my life, read the thoughts I was having when I was a small child or teen and relive certain adventures I had at the time. Writing is something I’ve simply always done. It’s apart of me, and as I grew older I entertained the idea of starting a blog.
I put it off for a while for I had no idea how to start and couldn’t find or make time to do it.
But as I’ve traveled I’ve come to realize how much I’ve needed to start a blog.
I love to travel and I love to write. Why not put these hand in hand? But traveling isn’t the only thing I will blog about.
I have decided not to conform with the rest of society. Most people in life strive for happiness and want to achieve personal goals and accomplishments. They have a store of dreams and why should these be brushed aside in place of a 9-5 job that bores you?
I decided early on this wasn’t for me. I’m going to live my dreams. As I said, it’s never occurred to me to do otherwise.
And I love a great deal of many other things such as: playing guitar, art, dancing, photography and learning German. Why limit myself to one passion? I don’t love traveling more than these things.
Admittedly though, I had been a rather lazy blogger starting out, not taking it near as seriously as I had first intended but I’ve thought it over and have decided I need to get busy and take action on this blog! For it involves what I what out of life – to be inspiration to others, to help and connect with like-minded individuals and to open a whole new world to their door… or laptop.
I’m a young ambitious woman who strives to take advantage of this life I’ve been blessed to have. Life is short. That’s the reason why it should not be wasted on doing things that have no meaning to you or to the people around you.
I am happy with my life – though I am not finished with reaching my goals. I still have a ways to go! But I’m enjoying life as I follow the path I feel lead to go down on.
What can I say?
I’m a dreamer.
