| MY FIRST BLOG POST |

And so it begins, I am finally starting my very own blog! After LITERALLY many years of contemplating whether I should do this, wondering what it would be like, and imagining the kind of blog posts I’d put out, it is finally happening. It is no longer just a fantasy or a day dream, I am actually officially doing this, and I’m really looking forward to this new chapter in my life.

Let me begin by explaining what compelled me to finally take a chance and start blogging.

A few months back, I was starting my very first job as a Registered Nurse, and was reading Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, during my commute on the train to work. After finishing that book, I was completely inspired by it. I felt powerful, full of life, and excited about my future. I had never felt so alive after reading a book before!

So, I became obsessed with Elizabeth Gilbert, and decided to look for anything else that she had written. I ended up finding her latest book, Big Magic, along with a podcast she was doing called Magic Lessons.

To say the least, both the book and the podcast lit a fire in me that could not be put out. I was motivated and inspired like never before, to finally make my dreams a reality and nourish my creative self.

 

I think the most important thing that came out of it all, is that it made me realize, that my creative self is important. That although I have priorities to focus on, it does not mean I should ignore my creative nature. It does not mean my happiness is not a priority too, and it does not mean that I should overlook what my soul naturally craves. This realization has made me love myself even more, it’s truly made me want to honor the person that I am, and embrace life in a whole new, more authentic and beautiful way.

As of now, I am in school, while also starting my career as a nurse, and I am constantly busy and stressed. Its been really tough. Throughout the struggles, I’ve really missed writing and creating, something my soul is naturally inclined to do. I thought I was doing the “right” and “responsible” thing by focusing on more “important” tasks, but I was wrong. Life is simply too grand and wonderful, to not allow yourself to experience your true bliss.

So, I am doing this.

I will write and create, and do what gives my spirit joy.

Though I’ll be honest, I don’t know where this is going to go. I am feeling lost as to how to proceed, and about the kind of content I want to create. Despite all of this, I know that I need to do this, and I am embracing the challenges that come ahead wholeheartedly. My soul needs this, and I am not doing this for any other reason, other than to make myself happy.

With that said, I am beyond excited to start writing! I hope whoever is reading this, follows me on this new journey I’m embarking on, and enjoys reading my posts!

My vision for this blog is to create a meaningful space that is honest, humble, authentic and expressive of who I am, and grows with me as time goes on. I will be writing about different topics, sharing my style, opinions and reviews on beauty products, my experiences as a nurse, and anything else that sparks my interest, or is relevant in my life. Feel free to visit my ABOUT page to get to know me a little better!

An immense thank you, to everyone who has been a part of all the support I’ve received, and a HUGE shoutout to Elizabeth Gilbert for writing Big Magic and doing the Magic Lessons podcast. They have truly changed my life, and I will be writing more about them soon! The podcast is free through the podcast app, here’s the link if you want to check it out!
