So I decided that I'll use my phone to take voice memos which I'll transcribe later! This way when inspiration hits and I'm feeling inspired I can capture my thoughts to share with the world when I'm safely seated at my desk; not driving. Maybe the world won't care and the only person reading this blog will be me, but that's OK. Part of what held me back from starting again was the pressure I put on myself to know what I wanted to say with my blog.
Do I want to talk about Weight Watchers? If I talk about Weight Watchers will it be from a leader or member perspective? Am I allowed to share my struggle with the world? Wonder if one of the blogs I write is one of those woe-is-me I'm struggling type blogs? Am I allowed to struggle if I'm a leader or will I lose members? Will I disappoint people if they know I'm human?
Do I want to blog about my rescuing animals? I love my pets SO much but I only have a dog and a cat. I'm not a foster parent and I'm not really involved in rescue. I hope someday to adopt another furbaby but I don't think I have enough to say about rescuing animals to dedicate an entire blog about it. Maybe one or 2 posts but I want to write more than that.
Should I write about fitness? What if I get burnt out and need a break? I go through periods where I LOVE the gym and then I hate it. What am I supposed to do if I hate it? And I'm not a trainer or some kind of expert so am I supposed to be like "the gym is awesome!" everyday? I get bored just considering that.
Should I write about massage therapy? How much can I really say about massage? I mean there's a LOT to be said about it and I love it but I love practicing massage, not writing about it!! But what if I want to write about massage once in a while!? Can I do that if my blog is about rescue pets or Weight Watchers?
I overthink things way too much and I allow myself to think that I don't matter and that what I want doesn't matter. But driving down the street the other day I realized I do matter and what I want does matter and I want to write a blog about all the things that I love! Weight Watchers (successes and struggles), furbabies, massage, fitness and just my life in general.
My hope is that being true to myself and honoring the quirky, weird and eclectic person I am might inspire someone to be true to themselves. I'm a square peg and I'm not going to fit in a round hole! So that's what my blog will be. Quirky, weird, eclectic and square. A little Weight Watcher mixed with some massage, fitness, furbabies and who knows what else.
