I guess you could say this whole “blogging” journey has been one of…realizing stuff….
Seriously, though. I picked three things out of the many things I’ve learned, and I really, really believe in them. These are lessons that have been changing my life & I hope they affect someone positively!
1. Embrace your weirdness
That’s right. We’re all different. Growing up, it can be hard to be yourself. It’s human nature to want to try to all be the same, but God made us each with unique qualities, and guess what guys- every quality you have has a good side.
Blogging really helped me understand this better. There are so many bloggers out there and it made me think about who I am and what makes me different. Instead of trying to be how everyone is, I’m trying to embrace who God made me.
Find out what your superpower (or weirdness) is, and use it to your advantage. Embrace it.
2. It’s okay to be afraid, but fear doesn’t have to hold you back
I couldn’t count how many times I am afraid to put myself out there. Every day it’s a battle. Everyday I am surrounded with the temptation of giving in to fear. But, I choose to put my trust in someone greater than fear. I choose to put my trust in God. I know that He can use my blog and my other passions for His glory. I know that following Christ is rewarding. I also know that giving into fear prevents me from being who He wants me to be. This is why I write my blog. I am fearful sometimes of putting myself out there, but I am confident it will be worth it. Fear does not have power over me.
3. There are so many awesome people out there
I honestly can’t stress this point enough. I have met so so many awesome people through blogging. I love meeting other bloggers and reading about their lives. Meeting new people can be horribly awkward sometimes, but meeting all these bloggers has been one of the best experiences!
