I'm currently reading You Are A Badass by (you guessed it) Jen Sincero. In chapter 18 she lists tips to help stop procrastination-- something I'm all too adept at. Number 1 reads, Remember That Done Is Better Than Perfect, and the paragraph below finishes with "... so get off your ass and get started. NOW!"
I surprised myself with how quickly I started making excuses to avoid posting today. I'd read that one should start a blog with about five posts waiting in the wings to be published on a pre-determined schedule, my mystical soul wanted to wait until the next full or new moon, etc. Thankfully, I soon recognized these thoughts as a type of hindering perfectionism-- so here I am, sleepily making my first blog post with no clue what I'm doing and only a vague idea of where I want this to go.
I believe this is a good time to start this blog because I can tell many things are about to change for me. This next year is going to be eventful and evolutionary, and I feel this blog will be a great outlet to reflect on and process these changes while connecting with people online. I'm working on mindfulness and assertiveness-- so instead of hoping for growth, I've decided I will make it happen.
I see myself possibly using this space to address lgbtq+, mental health, and body-positive issues, plus-size fashion, creative writing, and witchy/spiritual topics such as psychic readings, tarot, and astrology. If any of these things interest you, I'd deeply appreciate you joining me for the ride. As implied earlier, I don't have a second post tucked away in my back pocket, so a comment letting me know what you'd like to see would really help me out.
Thank you so much for reading.
Stay curious, loves.
