I just have to write. I have to.
I remember when my dad told me that I should have a blog and I was like "lol, that's stupid".
Then I started writing and I ran up to my dad screaming "I LOVE THIS".
For a really long time I put a lot of pressure on myself to continue to produce things that I thought you needed to hear.
"Why Drinking Water Is So Important"
"The Best Glute Workout"
I mean, those things hold value and I know someone could benefit from them, but what I did is allow fitness to run how I write. That didn't vibe with me because I have so much to say that has NOTHING to do with an actual gym--but it has everything to do with soul. With connection. With being a woman. With love. With actual real shit.
So I just need to write. Everyday I need to write. I see myself as a creative person I never wanted to force myself to write. I felt like forcing myself to write would produce some piece of crap. I would tell myself "it's writers block". However, being the wise and wonderful soul my dad is, he laid some knowledge on me that he got from a podcast.
"Do plumbers get plumbers block?" Uh, well no. I guess not. The thought behind it all was that as writers we are scared to say what needs to be said. I dug myself into months of "writers block" when I actually had so many things I wanted to say. I was simply scared to offend people or go off of the normal fitness chatter.
I'm going to write here everyday but Sunday, because that's my day of full blown self love throw down.
I'm going to write from my soul.
I don't want this site to be a dumping ground for all of my stories and feelings, so don't worry--this won't be a full blown diary. It will however be a home for meaningful and real conversations about the things I think women need to hear, and experience.
Day 1. You're done. As I sit here rocking out to Gooey by Glass Animals, I feel like I'm finally speaking my truth. I mean, it's day one so there's a lot of truth about to happen, but this just feels so right.
All the light and love,
