What’s the best way to start a blog?
As ironic as it may sound, I started my blog by saying goodbye to the old me. Not only to my old self, but also to my old feelings and all the mess that were all holding me back to start a new chapter of my life. From this day forward, everything will be different. I will live my dreams! I will follow my passion! I don’t care what other people might say (unless it’s constructive criticism).
Today, I started the day by saying goodbye to my insecurities. I have always loved writing. When I was a child, it was my ultimate dream to become a writer. To publish books, create wonderful stories, novels, and even motivate other people to bring out the best version of themselves. But, things have changed when I went to college. I met a lot of critics who would always tell me that I AM NOT GOOD ENOUGH! And guess what?! I was a fool because I believed them! Throughout my college life, I buried all my dreams. I’ve kept a very low profile. I would usually skip school, not because I don’t want to learn, but because I hate some of my classmates! I listened to other people’s opinions. I stopped believing in my dreams. I didn’t strive for a better life and just let the events control my life. I didn’t demand for love because I thought I was not worthy to be loved. I thought I was worthless.
But now??! I know better! I started to love myself so so so much that I feel like I’m overflowing with love everywhere I go. I am always smiling and happy! And along with that, I’ve discovered the positive side of the world. The beautiful, beautiful life! I started to live a life without anybody’s approval. I started setting goals and building dreams. And from this day forward, I will change my life. Today is MY CHAPTER ONE 🙂
