MY FIRST BLOGGING MILESTONE


Today, I celebrate my first blogging milestone! That is, I have finally gathered enough courage to share my blog with my friends! YAY! And! I finally made my blog a header! DOUBLE YAY!

Last year, I bit the bullet and set out on a journey into myself. I started this blog with the name 'Potpourri The Blog' and made this little online space a potpourri of any thing and every thing I tossed out of my system. So this blog is basically the outcome of me rummaging through the depths of myself, determined to not only discover my purpose and passion, but my fears and pains. I didn't tell any one, it was my secret hideout.  Hoping that maybe through this, I can one day become the ME that I dream to be: Whole, Passionate, Confident, Inspiring and Empowering. 

What an adventure it has been! Realizing my passion, building my confidence, spending hours days and months in deep thoughts, facing my fears, trying new things, dreaming, and just allowing my curious soul to lead the way. With only one rule, that is that there are no rules. and full dedication to do any thing that encourages me to reach deeper into myself to uncover every hidden matter in me, take on the challenges to grow, heal and discover what I live for. Bit by bit, I free myself to be who I want to be as I wrote it out.

Today, 10 months later, I still can't say that I am 100% my dream ME. I am still writing my way there. But today, I celebrate the distance covered. I am happier and prouder of the person I am today and that's all that matters. Even if that may be just the first step closer to where I want to be. xx

  9. I hope I'll be there one day! No one close to me knows about my blog. I like the fact that no one I know knows it. I like leaving it out there for other people to find, but most of all I use it for myself. Maybe eventually I'll let my friends and family know :) http://coffeeatmidnight13.blogspot.co.uk/
