I want to try this again.
I mean, I had a blog once before but I let it fade because it served it’s purpose for me. It was a different time in my life. I was sad, seeking more, seeking a feeling, and my god was I angry. I’d love to blame that angry feeling on the relationship I was in at the time, but I can’t do that, because I chose to stay. If you’re worried that I’m going to start dispensing advice and talking about past relationships, don’t [not yet anyway]. Just giving you some context.
I said all of that to say, I want to try this again. Back then I had the intention of giving something meaningful back to the world, but I just don’t think I had it in me. I really believe it’s true that ‘you can’t give from an empty cup’, meaning that you need to love yourself first. If you don’t, then it really might not matter your intention, because your emptiness still shows.
This isn’t to say that I have a full and complete love for myself now, but I can confidently say that in comparison to then…it’s massive, and I know how to make it grow, now. So the idea is, I am going to try to give you something, each time I write…and it’s going to get better. Because as I grow (and as we all grow), the better it will be.
So with that, here we go!
The first step in starting this again, aside from trying to recall topics that I wanted to write about, was to come up with a name. There were a few choice phrases that I thought would be so fitting, but the domains weren’t available and so I took that as a sign that it wasn’t right. Then I remembered this – “Never Assume You Are Funny”. Typing it even makes me laugh and I love it for so many reasons.
For the life of me I can’t remember where I first saw it or heard it, but I know that my friend and I used it endlessly (some might say we wore it out) on a vacation years ago. It’s interesting, it’s funny, and it’s true…which is why I found it fitting. Fitting for myself in the sense that I know there are times that I find myself amusing but have grown to realize that others do not, but come on –who can’t relate to that from time to time?
Anyway, I don’t have a specific direction for the this. I don’t have an end goal. I simply plan to take topics that come to me and elaborate on them…and I hope there is something in each of them that is uplifting. Well wait, I guess I do have a goal: I hope that at least once, you read something that I write and it changes your day — if not your day, then maybe your mood — if not your mood, then at least your mindset. That is my goal and my wish.
