In 2010 I began blogging as an outlet, as a hobby and as a way to simply share and interact with others. What began as Facebook Notes and lengthy statuses easily transformed into what were not blog posts. I didn’t enter the blogosphere with an end goal in mind, yet I felt most like myself when doing it. The more I blogged, the more opportunities began to be presented to me. Opportunities that had my words, thoughts, ideas and experiences being put in front of more and more people. People from places in the world I never thought I’d had reach in. Then life happened. Adulting happened. Working a full-time job, a part time job, a part time student, a daughter, sister, friend, and all of these other responsibilities that began to take over my life.
I began paying more attention to the jobs that paid me instead of the thing that fulfilled me. I stopped giving time to the things that drive me, the fuels me and pushes me. Feeling empty, I began to pray and each time I prayed and asked God to reveal my purpose a blog related opportunity would present it self. In fact, while in waiting I’ve said “no,” to many things. Some that may have put me in a better position to be further along in my career as a blogger and some that just would have just been nice to do. So here I am now, approximately seven years later, trying it again.
I have found my purpose, and this time, I plan to pursue it, relentlessly.
