The TAKEOVER: If You’re a Blogger..(or just breathing) you NEED to read this!!

So it’s that time…time for bloggers (like myself) to really, really get inspired!

Inspired to use the next month as a motivator for juicing your blogs up.  Like really, really give it all you got!

So as I sat thinking about what the first blog of the month would be about I realized that I had no clue. I am completely lost about the direction of my blog creation this month and you know what…I’m okay with that.

Here’s why…

As Bloggers, we are counting on our creative thinking and spontaneous ideas to give us the best material and I have come to realize that I really don’t want to “plan ahead” for this month…I have my goals for how often I want to write yes, and I have a few topics that are possibly brewing in my mind, but nothing really concrete.

I  decided that I just want to be inspired by my daily interactions in love and life, inspired by what seems like endless scrolling through social media and then instantaneously have my moment , or just inspired by my love for creativity and count on that to be my compass during this month that has in short been “hashtagged” as #NABLOPOMO.

What I do know is that as Bloggers we have an open forum to write about whatever moves us, whatever we are passionate about, or even whatever we absolutely hate…and then I began to realize that this is exactly what life should be about..doing whatever the hell you want!

Now take that as you will but of course I don’t mean going out being careless in life and doing the most incredibly DUMB things you can think of..but by this I mean living your life colorfully and not being afraid to “color” outside of those lines…but not just as Bloggers as living, breathing people.

Here’s one thing that we do know…life can be short right?

Life can change so unexpectedly and for me personally I would hate for something drastic to happen and I somehow realize in my afterlife that I didn’t live my life here on Earth to the fullest.

There’s too many of us that are too worried about what other people think, or what other people will say..or hell just by what other people are doing with themselves and by doing that we are potentially self sabotaging what could be our own beautiful and amazing experience here on this planet.

We all have the same 24 hours in a day to make the most of what it is we are actually doing with ourselves and if acknowledging the fact that there are just as many people out there that ARE actually truly living and doing what they love vs. those of us that are not then I don’t know what else will. I mean, what is the difference between them and those that are afraid to “be free”?

The difference is the passion and the level of motivation.

Think about it, there are Travel Bloggers, Lifestyle Bloggers, Entrepreneurs or as I like to specifically reference “womenpreneurs” and SO many other types of people out here living freely as they so choose and  passionately with no cares about what may try to come stand in their way.

People are even taking risks that they never dreamed of doing…all in the name of love and THIS is what I feel like life should be all about.  Stepping out of our comfort zones, and just going with the flow of things.

Maybe it’s going out on that date with that person you may not have considered “your type” and then be completely swept off your feet…or maybe it’s taking that loan out to fund your dream business and eventually creating generational wealth for your children and theirs.  I mean I can go on and on about all the different opportunities and why we should pursue them, but I think you get the point.

Which is to do exactly what I decided to do this month for #NaBloPoMo…just go with the flow. Be FREE to do as you’ve always dreamed..or on the contrary maybe what you never even thought of before.

Whatever “being free” may look like and allow you to do I hope you do it with a full heart of passion, because life is all about the experience right, but what good would that be if we really didn’t go out of our way to truly experience it?

Oh….and there you have it people….my official blog post #1…BOO-YOW!


Until Next Time

Peace & Blessings
