What to write about? They say write about what you know. Well, I know cake. I know how to have it and eat it too. I’m pretty good at it.

But is that what I really want to portray and express here? Whenever I start thinking of all the topics I want to share, my mind just has this kind of auto crash. I don’t really feel overwhelmed about it. All these ideas just run through my mind. I imagine how amazing it would be for me to actually share them and have an incredible life-changing impact on someone. Then it fizzles. Just as fast as it starts, it stops.

I don’t know how many times this has happened, but it’s a lot. I always find ways to have a little spark, but haven’t quite been able to put the pedal to the metal. It’s pretty important to me so I keep trying. In between all the things I’m doing, I know I’ll find a way to express myself and tell my story.

To clarify for me, my intention is to find a way to talk about life and share my own personal insights to empower people to get stronger and realize they can in fact design their lives. I’m not talking about getting rich and being a superstar kind of designing off-the-bat stuff. I mean the real world, daily life, acceptance, enjoying the process, and learning not to sweat the small stuff.

I believe having a strong life foundation will help you succeed and realize the true richness of life.

I’m a work in progress. I’ve put in a lot of work over the years and have a ton I want to share. I know it’s gonna be a slow process here in the beginning as I try to find the words and tone to speak to those who may benefit from hearing my insights. It’s like I’ll be writing for my 20, 30, 40-year-old me. I’ve been there and done that. I want to honor my experiences and the lessons I’ve learned.

I’ve been lost, depressed, anxious, stressed, broke, unhealthy, and hit my version of rock bottom. I’ve now found my path, happy as I’ve ever been, and healthiest ever. I draw on my past hardships to become anti-fragile. If I can get through all the inner struggles in the past, I can handle whatever comes my way.

It seems pretty cheesy to even write this, but if I can change one life out there to find their way and live a fuller loving life, my soul would feel more complete. It would mean even more if I can touch the lives of my friends and family even more in this journey. Who doesn’t want a better life for their loved ones?
