Hi, all you magnificent readers out there! At least, I hope there are some readers out there somewhere in the great wide-open internet. This being my first ever blog post and website, I'm not actually sure how many people will see this. Or even if/how many would want to see this... Personally, this is pretty impressive and inspiring stuff for me. My very FIRST blog post, yay! I'm super excited to be here and be doing this, and I have high hopes for what comes next. Though I AM trying to be realistic about that hope. You know not to get them so high that I end up plummeting into despair if something doesn't go right or if it doesn't immediately take off! I feel like a great many people start things like this and just expect it to rocket into success quickly (such is the age of instant gratification...), but I know that, on my part, it's unrealistic. So, I'm going to maintain my hopes and dreams but have realistic goals and boundaries.
I know this will be a good deal of hard work and keeping to my own personal schedules. This is going to be challenging because I'm a chronic procrastinator who is continuously trying to do five different things at once. But I feel like I'm ready for it or at least as prepared as I'll be for the foreseeable future! I'm not gonna lie; it was actually preeeetty terrifying once I set things in motion to do this. Like a lot of people, I have simply let my fear run roughshod over me and dictate entirely too much of my life. So, I decided to take a leap into the unknown and really go after something that I wanted to absolutely do with all my heart, mind, and soul. Yes, it's going to still be scary, and I know that there's going to be moments when I'm wondering WHY I decided I just HAD to do this crazy thing! But in the long run, I know it will be worth it. I just have to stick with it and be true to who I am.
This blog is going to primarily be about writing, art, tarot, and divination. At least at present, it will be. It's a bit eclectic like me, but then since it's a reflection of me, that makes perfect sense. I don't want it just to be another blog that posts every excruciating detail about my life. To be honest, that's never sounded very interesting to me. I want to post about things I love and am passionate about. Though I expect, over time, it like myself, and everyone else will change and evolve. There may be some trial and error, but hopefully, you'll bear with me until everything smooths out. I really want this website to be about finding like-minded people to socialize with. It's the biggest reason why I decided I wanted a forum to begin with and not just a straight-up blog where I post about everything going on in my life. I want us to help and support everybody as much as we can. I want us to be able to commiserate with each other but also boost one another back up out of whatever pit we find ourselves in. I want us to celebrate everybody's achievements and give the best advice we're able to. Let's have real discussions, questions, and debates (so long as everyone stays civil LOL!) about the things that matter to us. I genuinely want this to be a positive, welcoming space where we can express ourselves, seek answers and guidance, and move forward together in this crazy ride we call life.
Now for a much less serious note... You guys will also all have to excuse the title on this post because I had zero clues about what to call it. I kept going around and around in my head over this, and finally, I was like you know what? This is just gonna have to do because everything else I came up with sounds weird and strangely formal. I'm looking at you, Inaugural Post (see so stiff and somewhat political sounding - yuck!). How about Commencement Post? Still no? Yeah, me too, it sounds ridiculously ceremonious and like someone's graduating... To be completely honest, Grand Opening Post looked the least weird out of everything else I was running through. So don't be too hard on me about the title, LOL!
