Many people blog for many different reasons, and I’ll tell you why I do…..
It’s to externalize what I would normally internalize. It’s my corner of the world where I can share how I feel about any situation without a filter.
Too often we worry about being so perfect or better or right or fitting in that we forget to share how we truly feel. My blog started 7 years ago as a way to share my training for the 2009 CrossFit Games (yes it existed back then lol), and it turned into so much more.
It became a place that I could tell my story. Share success. Wallow in heart ache. And truly free myself. I was scared and nervous when I started blogging because ‘what will others think?’ and over time I cared less and less.
It’s truly been a freeing outlet. Because I’ve realized I’m broken, I’m imperfect, I sometimes even cry. and at the end of the day….THAT’S OK!
So I blog for no other reason than to free myself of judgement and to show others that being flawed and be comfortable admitting it is ok! Embrace being human!
