Taking Risks

my blog is a risk.  
a small one in the grand scheme of it all. 
 but a risk for me, nonetheless.

I have to admit that when I started my blog, I felt pretty silly.  I put myself out there for everyone to see, copy, criticize, and judge (good and bad).

When I started this thing back in October, I had no idea where it would go.  Who would even read it?  Why would anyone care about what I was doing or what I was making or what I had to say?  And ironically, I really hate bringing attention to myself, so why would I blog!?

But I have found blogging to be quite inspirational, liberating, and FUN!  It’s an outlet to get out all the things that swirl around in my head.

And now it’s evolved into this thing where I want to inspire others.  We all need inspiration in our lives, and if I can offer any small bit of it to someone (including myself), then this is the best risk ever!

So despite some of the downsides of blogging (like copying, the green eyed monster, and people who take the time to give my stuff bad ratings…), all the amazing women I have connected with, all of the AMAZING comments, and conversations that I have had with women I’ve met, this risk is one worth taking.  By a long shot.

For me this risk, has been one of my greatest adventures.  I feel a little more alive because of it.  I feel more inspired.  I feel happier.  I feel more confident to take more risks.

keepin’ it real today.  take a risk, don’t be afraid to put yourself out there.

  1. I agree that blogging is a risk, too. It really opens us up to lots of criticism that would be avoided if we didn’t blog. But it’s so much fun and the people we encounter of fabulous. I really like seeing how other people live, too. Have a great day!

  2. I love your blog! I work 40 hours a week and I will be honest, by the time I got home, I was not in the mood to cook (nor had I thought in advance what I should make)…
    You have truley inspired me to plan out my meals for the week, get some things ready either the night before or in the morning before work and then when I get home all I really need to do is a few things and then either throw it in the oven or in a pan.
    Thank you so much for the great ideas… Oh, and my family thanks you too!!! lol

  3. I really like your blog too! I am new to blogging too, in fact only 2 weeks in! Very scary, I did not want to tell anyone, so scared of the critics!! But I did it, I took a risk, thanks to ladies like you!
