Here I go!

About a year ago, I decided I was going to start a blog once I graduated. Well, I have not graduated yet, but I thought I should learn how to navigate the world of blogs!

My husband, John, has asked me why I want to keep a blog and who is my audience.

My answer: I don't know.

I was never really into keeping a journal and when I decided to keep one, it was because I was going through a hard time in life and just needed to write all my emotions down. In general, I only wrote when I was sad. I also never kept those thoughts locked up. As a matter of fact, I read my whole journal to my sister one day as I cried remembering the sad moments I had gone through. She thought my life sounded like a movie - and I agreed.

Four years later, I am ready to start something different. That red, hard cover journal is now something that belongs to my past.

My goal is to capture everything that is meaningful to me in this blog - not just the sad things. I want to post about my life and the little and big things and people who make me who I am. I know that God is going to show up in my writings time and time again, for He is a big part of me.

As for an audience - well, I don't really expect anyone to take the time to read what is in my mind and heart. But I would hope that my words can somehow or someday brighten someone's day.

If no one reads any of this, than I am not losing anything - since these posts are a little like a box full of memories for me. However, if someone does read it - I hope it encourages them in one way or another.

That is it for now. We'll see how this journey develops from here on.
