Starting a blog or the idea of starting one was definitely a scary (and exciting!) thought. Putting myself out there was definitely something I had to be sure I wanted to do before I decided to hit the “publish” button.
I find other people fascinating which is why I’ve been following bloggers for years. I’ve always admired their willingness to share a little part of their lives with the world, regardless of what people may think of them.
1.I had to accept the fact that I am putting myself out there for people to possibly judge me for what I’m doing.
2.Not everyone is going to like me.
3.People will think I’m selfish.
4.People won’t care.
I see all of the above reasons being valid enough for someone like myself NOT to start a blog.
But I decided to go against my fears and to just go for it. Not everyone is going to like me. Not everyone is going to think that what I’m writing has anything to do with them. I’m not always going to be relate-able. Some people might even think that what I’m writing is pretty foolish.
And that’s okay.
The whole reason I started this blog was for selfish reasons. I started this blog because I wanted a creative outlet for myself. Because I felt like I was missing something in my own life. The act of creating something in my life was non-existent. By going on little adventures or sharing some fun tips, taking photos, editing them and then documenting them, I feel like I’m finally becoming fulfilled through something I’ve wanted to do for so long! How AWESOME!
My ultimate goal with my blog is to hopefully inspire at least one person to just GO FOR IT! To take that trip they’ve been dreaming of taking. To take salsa classes. To pick up an instrument! To buy that pretty dress they’ve been eyeing because it makes them feel good. To face their fear(s). My mom always said it right when she would ask me, “What’s the worst that can happen?” Whatever the case may be, I sincerely hope I can inspire anyone who takes the time to read Simply Meli.
I’ve gotten so much positive feedback and support from so many after going for my little dream. It has meant so much to me! I am still learning a ton. It’s definitely no easy task trying to fit in time to think of ideas of what to write or what content to create while still trying to work full time. I’m still learning how to take photos and how to edit them correctly. I still feel like I don’t know what to write half the time or let alone what I’m doing. And yes, I still ask myself why I’m doing this or what purpose it serves. I’m still figuring things out every single day because this is really just the beginning. I’m just doing my thing and I am working on becoming the best version of myself everyday. I can’t wait to see where Simply Meli may take me (or you!) and I look forward to continuing to share a little bit of my life with you everyday.
