This blog, though it doesn’t yet exist, means a lot to me. It must do, for I’ve lost count of what number attempt this is at writing an appropriate introduction to this blog and the topics it will discuss.
I’ve always felt that my purpose was to inspire, but for too long I’ve felt that I was unqualified to share my opinion and views with the world. (Unqualified and afraid of the consequences of having an opinion.) However, I’ve come to realise that I’ve actually been through a lot already in my life, more than most my age, so perhaps I’m more qualified than I thought.
I also figured that raising awareness of good causes and topics close to my heart in a positive and healthy way is surely a good thing. I want to drive the conversation and be part of something positive. It’s a cliché, but it is true: if I can help just one person, then my worries of being criticised or ridiculed will be worthwhile.
And so this blog comes to be. It is somewhere that I will largely share thoughts on mental health, self-development, wellbeing, business and being true to ourselves, as well as nourishing and looking after both our bodies and the Earth.
I don’t mean to preach or offend, so I would also like to take this opportunity to say that all opinions are my own, and I mean no offence if your views do not align with mine. I wish for this blog to be a place for people to constructively engage in conversations so we can open our minds to others’ points of view, be inspired to make positive changes, and be reassured that we are not alone in the situations we face.
