The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

When pondering what it was that I really wanted to blog about I experienced so much anxiety. What would people really be interested in reading about that was both helpful and relatable? How am I going to make my blog stand out from all the others? What about my grammer and spelling! Ha! See… (*grammar*) why is this sooo hard?!

I knew I wanted to start blogging about 4 years ago. Yes, 4! I finally decided today eff it! So what if there’s a typo! Who cares if no one reads it! I’m going to share myself with the world and if it helps even one person, great! Even if that one person is me… We are all worth it anyhow, aren’t we? Aren’t we worth doing what we set out to do — something that screams our personality and passions? Aren’t we worth setting our goals and achieving them? How many times am I going to coach a client on getting themselves out there and taking a risk, even if it takes trying time and time again? In reality, that’s how we truly live life — not just going along with it.

I want to offer an apology — an apology for keeping my experiences and thoughts and humor from the world for so long — an apology not only to the ones who will read this, but to myself as well — an apology for suppressing my soul and my creative self. No more. Now I let the journey commence. And I hope you’ll join me!

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

Well, I finally gathered the courage to let my fears subside and start sharing this journey with you all. I'm finally fulfilling my dream of helping others find their light and go for what they are passionate about. Finding peace within themselves and letting loose their fears and self sabotaging judgments. I get to introduce fun once again into life. Embracing who they truly are and we do it in such a way that we enjoy the process, no matter how uncomfortable it can get, we start to get excited about the emotions and thoughts that uncomfiness brings about. Shedding past restraints and creating a life you want.

  3. I know how much this means to you sis and how hard it is to overcome our fears to manifest our dreams. I applaud your courage and want to offer you the simplistic, but nonetheless encouraging words I heard when things became physically and mentally difficult, “Pain is weakness leaving the body.” — USMC propaganda.

    I also offer Cassius’ morbid pep-talk, “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, But in ourselves, that we are underlings.”
    — William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar (I, ii, 140-141)

    And last but not least, “Don’t worry, be happy.”

  4. Wow, i can so relate to this! I am finally coming out of my shell this year and also feel the need to apologize, not only to myself but for other younger girls who may have been inspired by seeing me expressing myself creatively! Cheers to those women who are already out there paving the way for others who are thinkin about launching out there in the world but still holding themselves back for fear of rejection! let us all support one another and help to create a world of limitless creativity and love! Thank you so much Ashley for taking that first step and starting the conversation of what holds some of us back!
