I promised myself that my entire first week I would post something every single day.
I told myself that I would be completely honest and straightforward, even if it hurt.
I challenged myself to engage with others, not only reading blogs but responding.
Looking back over my first week, I think it has been a success. I am happy with the direction this blog is taking and was relieved to be universally accepted and welcomed in such a short time. I have tried to be upbeat and positive while taking the time to write well-thought and composed posts. During this past week, I have learned some things:
I didn't realize how difficult, yet relieving, it is to write consistently about the things I have kept hidden from the world for so long.
I learned how knowing and being able to talk with people who have gone through similar trials in their lives can be comforting and insightful.
I underestimated how thrilling and addicting it is to get comments.
Looking around the “MoHosphere,” I applaud all of you, my fellow bloggers. I never realized what a commitment blogging truly is, and Beck just hit four years! Yet, some of my fears and concerns remain the same:
I worry about the course my life may take in comparison to my nurtured beliefs by opening up and becoming more comfortable with my nature.
I fear someone I know discovers this blog and figures out who I am, yet deep down I want it to happen.
I fret being too aloof, too preachy, too depressing, too introspective, too random and too boring.
Looking forward, I hope to find a balance in all things which results in me being happy with who I am and who I have become. I hope that this blog turns into a living journal of my journey that I can look back and be proud of my progress. And I hope that each and every one of us finds our way amidst whatever life throws at us.
