For me, blogging has been an exercise in attempting (and kicking butt at) the impossible. I was so nervous to hit ‘publish’ on that first post! But after lots of hard work, trial and error, inspiration, panic, creativity, sweat, support, and triumph, I can say a whole year later that I’ve gotten more comfortable doing things that I previously thought were ‘impossible.’ I used to think that I wasn’t good enough, wasn’t creative enough, that no one would ever read this little blog of mine. But all of you reading this now have proven me wrong! With a lot of passion, and a lot of hard work, it really is possible to do the impossible.
So whether it’s working up the courage to try something new, meet new people, or start an endeavor or business that your heart has been dreaming about for years, once you put one foot forward, it becomes a whole lot easier to keep going! Taking the leap and starting this blog (and finding some success) has inspired me to try other things I thought were previously undoable in the rest of my life. I’ve worked harder at reaching out to friends, new and old, I’ve started attending barre3 classes regularly and loving it (says the girl who used to hate physical activity), and now I’m taking another step forward and launching my own Etsy shop in a couple weeks. It really is fun to defy the odds, whether those odds are a social construct, or just a barrier in your own mind. Believe in yourself and take the leap, and you, too, will find yourself achieving the impossible 🙂

Oh Erica, you’re rockin’ this journey with each and every step you take girl! SO excited for you to start this newest adventure! xo
Aww, thanks SO much! I wouldn’t be where I am without lovely friends like you to support me! 🙂
Love this post! I totally agree. I used to think I could never be creative, and didn’t think I could ever sew. Now I have my little Etsy shop and LOVE sewing and creating new designs. Congrats on starting up and Etsy shop! Can’t wait to see all your creations!
Aw, thank you SO much! It totally is a hurdle overcoming our own mental roadblocks. But once we do, it really is amazing what we can accomplish! I’ll definitely be adding your shop to my favorites! See you on Etsy 🙂
All of us or so happy you clicked “publish” on that first post! Keep kicking butt 🙂
D’aww, don’t make me blush, Cat! Thanks so much for following along on my journey – I wouldn’t be here without awesome friends and supporters like you! 🙂
I can TOTALLY RELATE. I started this blog in January (as in, four months ago) and was so freaked out the first few times I hit publish. What will people think? What if they don’t like it? What if I’m not funny? Phew. I think blogging is the best way to get over “whatever everyone else thinks” and start doing what you authentically want to be doing. Life is short. And I love your blog and the printables, btw. Cheers!!!
I totally agree – after I started posted regularly I found myself worrying less about what people think. It really is so freeing to not be held back by those fears anymore! I still get nervous from time to time, but I just remind myself that this is what I want to be doing with my life and I’m going to fight hard to make it successful. I’ve loved following along with your blog, too! Keep up the fab work! 🙂
