A year and some change ago I decided to start a blog. I decided I wanted my own platform to officially share my story to the world. I wanted to give hope. I wanted to give encouragement to not only young women but to the world. My first ever blog post was “Why having a child young isn’t the end of the world.“ and I wrote it in hopes that it would shine light on young mothers and educate those who have a negative perception of them.
For those of you who don’t know. I have a little five year old. I get told all the time “You don’t look old enough to have a five year old..” and I go speechless. I’m sure they mean it in a good way but I can never tell and I never know what to say?? “Yeah I started young” “*awkwardly laughs* yeah thanks” I mean every time someone says that I’m just lost.
There’s no doubt in my mind that my daughter was sent to me for a reason and I am so blessed to have her in my life. She has such a unique birth story. Her story is another reason why I wanted to make a blog. The story has drifted through the ears of the locals for a while and I just wanted to make sure the story was straight. There are still many people who doubt my story but i know what truly happened that night. I have my family as witnesses as well.
I say that she was sent to me because of the way she came to me. I remember having her and my whole body physically being in shock and mentally not being there. But there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to keep her and see the purpose behind this little bundle of love in my life. The journey hasn’t been an easy one but there’s no doubt that she has blessed my life in more ways than one. I couldn’t imagine life without her.
I started blogging to share my story. I have always wanted to influence and motivate people for the better. When I was younger and I saw these artists and singers with these incredible platforms but not really doing anything with it. They have millions of followers but use it to promote themselves and not draw attention to important causes and that’s something I wanted to do. I didn’t have a talent though. I didn’t and still don’t have anything to attract my followers to me. I see these “Instagram models” and they mainly just offer their looks and I’m average on a good day. I’m still trying to find my niche and hopefully one day I’ll be able to. Here I am a year later and I was able to build a twitter account with 12.4 thousand followers and my Instagram at 6 thousand. It may not be a lot compared to some but it is such a big deal to me. I want to spread positivity and promote self love to as many people as I possibly can. I want to share my positive insight to the world. I want to show people how they deserve to be treated and loved. I have so much love in my heart that it’s just bursting. I want to love the world and explore new places and spread good words every where I go. This is why I started blogging. I want to make people like you reading this feel loved and welcomed as well as share my personal stories as I drift through life.
Thank you so so much to those of you who take the time to read my posts and have followed me from the very beginning.
