It’s been almost half a year since I started this blog. It’s been almost half a year since a particularly memorable experience at work, followed by a long conversation with my best friend and much needed thinking by myself, gave me the push I needed: I finally admitted to myself that the only reason why I was dreaming instead of planning, was because it’s comfortable. And safe. And easy.
I said it many times on this blog and I happily say it again: Being comfortable is not the be-all and end-all. There is an entire world out there I want to experience. I want to feel happy and frustrated, warm and cold, scared and giddy with excitement. I want to feel utterly lost. I want to find myself. I want to experience everything this life has to offer.
I want to feel alive.
Back in March, I made the decision to change my life. I gave myself 12 months to figure everything out – from coming to terms with not having a reliable income or roof over my head to canceling contracts and getting rid of 99% of what I own. I also decided to start this blog as a safe space where I can write about my thoughts, my hopes, my fears–and every emotion in between.
Last month, the team at MyTrendingStories.com contacted me and offered me to become a contributing author on their site. I am so excited and thankful to be given this opportunity as it allows me to share my stories with you not only here on my own blog but also on their amazing platform.
Be sure to check out my author profile and posts at MTS as well as the entire site – it is full of amazing bloggers and vloggers!
PS: I have no idea how I’m supposed to keep up with the number of posts the other authors at MTS.com put out – my life is not that exciting!? I think I need to take a nap to calm down.
