It might be hard to believe, but a lot of the time, I find myself lost for words when I sit down to write. I have to daydream, brainstorm, do a little dance, google extravagant words and exhale. Sometimes, it takes me hours to write about something...other times I knock it out in one sitting. When I'm stuck, I have to quote to my own self, read my own mind and pick my own brain. That's when I remember why I blog.

I blog because it's why I'm here I'm here to be a writer To uplift To inspire I blog because I know that what I say is what I mean & it hasn't always been like that I used to stumble over my words...afraid to speak up and be heard I used to be unaware of who I was and what I wanted to say I know, I'm young...but for so long, it felt like I would never know who I was What I was here for

I've always been creative Artistic of sorts But My brain was overloaded Unsure of where to put everything & that's when the lightbulb went off! I can blog...I can write...I can create...I can share and I can just be! All in one place.

I blog because I didn't always have a voice I was afraid I was in toxic settings, boring jobs and meaningless relationships...holding me back from being who I needed to be for me I blog because now I can set that all free

I blog because people stopped giving me chances and so... I started giving chances to myself

I blog because I want to be my own boss and I will be. Then you'll see me walking on air flipping my hair just in bliss...like sis:

I'm still uncovering the rest of the reasons

That's all for now...
