STARTING A BLOG – YES? NO? MAYBE?
My answer: why not?
The idea of starting a blog has been stuck in my head for quite a long time now but it took me a while till I realized that only thinking about it without working on it won’t get me anywhere. So I decided just to do it. And no, I still don’t know where this whole blog thing will take me, but honestly, we don’t know much about future things in general, do we? Who knows how the world will look like in a few weeks, months or even years? This is why I just wanted to give it a try. I thought about how often people (including me!) talk about things they want to do but actually end up never doing it because they are afraid of the possibility of failure. This happens mostly because leaving our comfort zones seems too hard and so we just continue to live our everyday life and try to avoid making changes as long as they are not absolutely necessary. But isn’t that a shame? How many great ideas die because of our fear that we might fail? Why don’t you just try it? The worst thing that could happen is that it doesn’t work out like you have imagined. So what? Then you can at least say that you gave it a try and carry on with your life. Otherwise the idea will haunt you and this will drive you crazy because you will never know what would have happened if you just gave it a go. My advise is not to think about the possibility to fail but about the possibility of success. Regardless of what will or won’t happen – make a decision instead of waiting for “the right moment”. Because if you wait, I promise that as time passes it’s getting more and more unlikely that you put your idea into action. So don’t waste your time and dare to do the things you can’t stop thinking about.
Sorry, I’m getting off track.
Long story short – why am I actually starting this blog now? Well, I’m doing this because I just feel like it. And there’s nothing that speaks against it. As easy as that :). Writing generally, putting my mind on paper and being creative are things that I have always loved doing. Therefore, I like the idea of creating a virtual place where I can share my thoughts on topics that not only concern myself but also might be interesting for you. I would love to exchange thoughts about topics like healthy living, fitness and eating food that makes us happy. So feel free to leave a comment whenever you want to share your opinion!
