I can’t wait to dive in to blogging about all the fun projects I’ve completed on my home! But first, I thought I would dedicate my starter post to a little more about who I am and why I’ve started a blog.
I know that blogging has become extremely popular in today’s time. Who wouldn’t want to sit on the couch and make money, right? Although I do hope to make income off of this eventually, I started this because of passion. Passion is a word that I have always used loosely and not fully understood. As I’ve grown and matured the last several years, I’ve learned what the word truly means.
I always liked to think of myself having passion, but until I met my husband, I didn’t realize what I was missing. Yes, I am passion about Jesus and His church… beyond that, I’ve always loved socializing, baking, and doing crafts. But were those things passion? When I started getting to know my husband in the beginning of our relationship, he would light up as he talked about his career, his future, and his ideas. He has so many dreams and goals for his life; some may think of him as over-ambitious. To me, however, it was admirable. I wanted to get excited about something in life! What did I want to do with my life? What did I want to do to further God’s Kingdom? I truly had no idea.
By all means, I’m not saying I’ve figured out the key to life or anything, but I felt that I was letting life live me instead of me living life! I like my career (I’m a sign language interpreter), but I realized I had lost my passion and excitement over it as I took in the monotony of everyday life. I wanted to wake up ready to take on the world!! This is where the blog comes in. It’s always something I’ve been interested in but was too afraid to commit. Even if no one ever reads the words on these pages, it will be enough to try out a passion.
I’m definitely not done with my soul-searching. I hope that I’m always learning about myself and what I love! For now, though, I think I’ve found my niche and I hope that others are inspired to do the same, whatever it may be.
