So I wrote a super serious first blog post the other week to start me off.
I wanted to come out and be all: Hey, I'm a serious writer and here are my innermost serious thoughts. Then I realised...who I am kidding? This isn't going to be a serious blog and I don't want it to be! I want to be able to be serious, but really, I want this blog to be a celebration of my adventures and the exciting things I do.
So below is my serious first blog post, with the caveat that they wont all be like this. Sometimes I will get a bit stuck on the exclamation mark key and write like and so yea a lot.
But for today. Lets be a bit more grown up.
I have been writing in my head for as long as I can remember. Sometimes I can write entire soliloquies in my mind before I even realise what I'm doing. I've kept journals at times but they have never been great, so I've decided to finally start the blog I've been thinking about for years.
So here it is.
Part of the reason I am finally setting this up is that I am embarking soon on an adventure that I know will be rated amongest my top best decisions in life. A couple of the decisions that I now consider to be among the best, I didn't realise were so at the time. I know this one will be already.
Maybe the difference is that I am less of a thinker now, and more of a dreamer. I dont know if I'm the only one who sees the distinction in the way that I do. A thinker, to me, is more serious, analytical and not necessarily prepared to see the best in every situation. They see the risks, and often act accordingly. In comparsion, a dreamer knows the risks or limits but refuses to accept they are crucial, and is more willing to accept that everything will happen how it is supposed to, and not always how you expect.
I like to think I'm more the dreamer now, and I'd like to keep a record of this time where I am acting on those dreams I have been thinking about for years, as well as reflect on the ones that have been and gone.
So here goes.
You only live once, right? (Yes I did just pull out YOLO in my first blog post, and you know what? I'm not sorry!)
