I’m not really sure why I have such a hard time keeping up with blogging. I think it’s mostly because I don’t feel like there’s ever anything in my life interesting enough to actually blog about.
But I really enjoy blogs. I enjoy reading them, and although I don’t have a public blog, I’ve met people through blogging. It’s great seeing how other people live, what other people are doing, and being inspired by the things others are doing. I’m not sure that exercise would have become such a big part of my life had it not been for the motivation I found by seeing what others were accomplishing. I may have never made the commitment to do C25K had it not been for a local blogger who made big things happen with others who were trying to do the same thing I was trying to do.
And I know that I don’t live in a place that is interesting, or have a life that is particularly interesting, but the great thing is that all of these other bloggers were just living their lives in an ordinary way until they decided to document their journey. And then things started to happen for them. They met people. They were given opportunities they may have never had before. They opened themselves up and good things happened.
And that’s what I need. I need to open up and let the world in. To live and do and be more than I’m currently settling for.
It starts now.
