First

 

Life is all about firsts. And they all have one thing in common– they’re scary!

Am I terrified that people will read this? Yes, I am actually. But will that stop me from doing this? No.

I’ve been debating this blog for over a year. Struggling with the back and forth of “no I can’t that’s dumb and lame I can’t” and “HELL YEAH I’M DOING IT BECAUSE I’M AWESOME WHO CARES”

Just recently I sat down and asked myself, “what do I want?”

“what is it really that I want to be doing right now?”

“what do I love and want to do?”

“what makes me happy?”

I made a list. Came up with about 7 reasonable things:

  • TV reporter
  • travel
  • write
  • read
  • yoga
  • concerts
  • animals

So far I’ve already been to my first concert of the year, The Lumineers! And of course I’m planning others, so, check. Last summer I started to do yoga and completely fell in love with it. Thanks to work, school, and my internship I have had no time to do it but finally decided to commit to it. I try to do it at least 3 times a week. Check. I recently (about 5 months ago) became a vegetarian because I love animals that much. Check. And finally, I am currently planning all the trips I will be taking this year. Check.

Here is where I want to give a quick shout out to my friends for always being down to go on whatever adventure I propose. My friends are THE best.

So I’ve checked off a couple of things on my list to make me a happier and better person. Now, what could I do to read and write more? (Well, yanno, besides read books and stuff) Yep, you guessed it, MAKE A BLOG. (I will explain the TV reporter thing later on..)

The whole making-a-blog-thing was probably the hardest thing to check off my list. Personally, I feel like it takes a lot of courage to share your writing with other people. ESPECIALLY the Internet. It’s a harsh world out there but I am finally at that point in my life where I don’t care nor need people’s approval. I know it takes a lot to get to this point but I am glad I’m finally here.

I am done doubting myself. I know it won’t be easy but I’m determined to just DO instead of always WISHING .

I’d like to end my very first post with a little advice.. DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO. DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY. FIND SOMETHING THAT YOU LOVE AND SOMEHOW INCORPORATE IT IN YOUR EVERY DAY LIFE. This is so so so–oh–so important. Specially if you’re feeling lost or don’t know what to do with your life. Sit down, write it down, and act on it. I promise it will instantly impact your life. No matter who approves or doesn’t approve, do it. Life’s too short.

Sorry that was all super cheesy but it’s the truth. If it worked for me I feel like it could work for someone else. And I am all for helping others.

Okay, if you have read this whole thing, THANK YOU! Any support means so much to me. I’d like to personally thank my parents, sister, best friends, and any other people who have helped me or pushed me to follow my dreams. –Special thanks to Dwayne Johnson for designing my logo.

Here’s to many firsts!

love,

claudia
