Hello world! My first Post…a month later
I never thought I had anything witty or insightful to say or that people would want to know about the trials and tribulations in my life. After some ego boosting back in April on Twitter, I decided that I wanted to blog. The entire process was overwhelming and I really had no idea where to start.
What would I call my blog?
What would be the tone or theme?
Which blogging site should I use?
Would this count for #11 on my list?
I mulled over the different ideas. I knew that I wanted to do the blog, I just didn’t want it to seem like my personal journal.
One day, after perusing one of my favorite blogs, Letters To Twilight, I read a Twilosophy post about Bella having to make a choice between Edward and Jacob. Blog author at LTT, asked this question:
“So the whole thing got me thinking… what if she didn’t choose either of them? What if she decided to choose HERSELF?”
It hit me. That is exactly what I did. I chose myself back in October when I called off the wedding. I decided enough was enough and I deserved so much better. I needed to put myself first. I needed to choose myself and learn to actually like myself, maybe even love. I quickly went over to wordpress.com and picked the blog name: I Choose Me.
You may notice the date of this post is from 7/17, the day I signed up for this blog. Well, no excuses other than I was convinced that I needed to upload photos from my camera and I still cannot find that wire. So we may be photoless for a while, but I’m motivated to write and THAT makes me happy.
Feel free to leave love notes. Are you happy that I’m finally writing this blog?
