When I decided to start writing a blog one of the things that stopped me from beginning straight away was choosing the right name. I spent a lot of time and energy stressing about what would be cool, catchy and convey exactly what I was all about.
But then I just took action. I sat down and stared writing.
I went on wordpress one day, all of a sudden I had a name for my blog and I was away. I realised that it didnt matter, I just needed something on the table (well maybe not quite anything), and that I could always refine and imrpove from there.
I also struggled with what content I’d like to talk about. Should I post on travel? Challenges? Random thoughts and things that I notice along the way? Is it going to be a mish mash of things that whir through my mind? Probably!
However now that I have gained some momentum, sharing my thoughts is not as hard as i’d thought it was going to be, and the simple act of writing provides clarity and organisation.
Coming from a person who felt so overwhelmed that she never really had the time to sit down and think, to a girl who sets aside time everyday for conscious thought, is amazing.
That first step is the hardest and now that I have begun my journey I can see more clearly that it was simply indecision that was holding me back and making my mind feel like chicken soup.
So don’t worry about what anyone else thinks, just set time aside to sit down and write, and do it for you 🙂
