“Everybody has to start somewhere. You have your whole future ahead of you. Perfection doesn’t happen right away.” -Haruki Murakami
I think what’s been holding me back from “officially” starting a blog for so long was fear. There are already so many influential bloggers out there. I wanted to wait until I knew I was perfect enough and I was afraid of starting until I became just that. But the problem is this: I’ll never be. The definition of perfect is this:
per • fect
- having all the required or desirable elements, qualities, or characteristics; as good as it is possible to be.
- absolute; complete (used for emphasis).
- make (something) completely free from faults or defects, or as close to such a condition as possible.
It’s impossible to be perfect. No matter how close we come, because we’re human, we’ll always be a mess. But I’m learning to let go of my perfectionism and embrace the beautiful mess I am. And I finally started this blog to do just that. To inspire you to embrace yourself for who you are – for who God created you to be – and to join me on this journey to becoming a better person who will make a positive impact in the world.

My blog won’t be perfect. I am a flawed human being. But it’s all really about conquering my fears and doubts, with God’s help, and doing something that I’m really passionate about. Will you join me?

And I promise most of the posts on this blog won’t be this serious. 😉
