Why is this number two you ask? Well the thing is I already wrote the first introduction consisting of all the things I wanted this website to be. I wanted this to be a place where I could share all of my favorite things. Everything from my favorite TV shows to my favorite books, but as I was sitting here at my desk writing a letter to an old friend, I realized this needed to be so much more. I needed to share my stories. My heart. The things I have overcome, the things I have dealt with. You may be thinking…well she hasn’t really had a hard life…to that I say…you are 100% correct. I haven’t had a hard life. However, everyone has their fair share of obstacles and trials in life.
I have had to deal with many things in my life. I have had to overcome a family members cancer diagnosis, the loss of friends throughout the years, and the biggest hardship of all, the loss of loved ones. With all the difficult times, I have also been blessed with many things. I have been able to go to college, have an amazing family, and have had some amazing friends.
I guess the point is although I have been through some troubling times, I am still alive. I still have the capability of sharing my stories and changing the things I want to change with my life. So with all this being said, I have chosen to make this opportunity more personal than I originally intended. I will still continue my original idea, but maybe by making the decision to open up about some of the more important things in life, I can help others who have found themselves in a dark place.
Due to a personal trial, I have made the decision to take this leap of faith. Even if I end up doing journey all on my own, maybe it will still help me find the answers I need to become a better person. However, I do sincerely hope to see everyone in the next chapter of this journey.
