2 Years Ago, I Turned A Hobby Into A Passion That Saved Me
It's hard to believe that I've been on this journey for 2 years now. Hard to think that it's been two years since I was in one of the lowest points of my life, desperately searching for a way to take my mind off of all of the sadness that was consuming me.
In that very dark time, I wrote a blog post. I wasn't even sure what a blog post was. I wrote a blog post for myself. As an outlet. To find a place to get out some of the feelings I was experiencing that I did not know how to put into words. I wrote this blog post and people loved it. Thousands of people shared it and it took off in a way I didn't think was possible.
This blog post- I never thought it would become anything. I never thought people would actually read it. I definitely never thought 2 years later 17,000 + people would be following a Facebook page dedicated to my life and sharing it with all of you.
So to the point of this blog....Finding your outlet can save you. It can bring you out of a very dark place and help you find purpose again. It can get you through the hardest of times and pick you up every time those hard times hit again.
It can save your life. I know that sounds dramatic but to me, it isn't. We all need things to keep us going. We all need something that we can fall back on when everything is a mess. We all need a security blanket, something that can make the darker days brighter and help us to continue putting one foot in front of the other.
And for this I thank you. Thank you for letting this place be my outlet. Thank you for allowing me to share my life with you. Thank you for taking the time to read my posts. Thank you for letting me help you while I also help myself.
2 years later and this is just the beginning. 2 years later and this community I have started to create will continue to grow. As I continue to grow and as I continue to struggle, I look forward to sharing it all with each of you, and helping you also survive this rollercoaster of a life that we are all on.
Thank you, from the very bottom of my heart,
