I’ve been really inspired lately. Inspired by some of the amazing women out there who write blogs. I mostly read “healthy living” or “fitness blogs” but I like to think of anything I read as more about the person than any recipe or workout they can lend me. I choose blogs like I might choose a friend. Did I connect with that post? Do I find myself nodding my head in agreement? Did this post make me think? If the answer to any or all of the above questions is yes, then I make a point to continue reading.
I’ve enjoyed so many posts over the past few weeks that it made me miss my own experience with blogging. It makes me wonder how and why I stopped. I’d like to say life, relationships, and grad school got in the way, but I honestly don’t feel that any of those things are the complete truth. I think I had (and still have) a lot of growing up to do. When I started blogging I was a girl at the beginning of a road to recovery from a severe eating disorder. I was still vulnerable, but I was strong enough to share my stories, my experiences and ultimately where my life was headed as I got healthy again.
Here I sit, almost 6 years after first discovering the world of blogging and connecting with people on the internet and I desire to be part of this again. If only for the fact that I am a happier person when I write a little bit every day. But I also feel like we all have something to contribute and share, and I want to be a part of that too.
So…I’ve got less than 2 months left of my 24th year and I’m coming back, can’t wait to see where this goes.
