New? Start Here!
Sometimes I want to know more about how my favorite bloggers got to where they are. A “starting here” section lists everything in the order it happened. We all gotta start from somewhere, but sometimes we get stuck thinking things have happened over night. Here’s my story:
It was the beginning of 2016 and I was fresh into my first job out of college in the corporate world and I felt my dreams dying a little more each and every day.
My first post, basically created in a red spiral 70-page notebook of how all my dreams of what adulting would be like were crushed in this post. I knew VERY early on that working in an office was NOT for me. After about a month of venting in a notebook about how I couldn’t possibly “work for the man” for the rest of my life I decided to start a blog.
- The name started out as “Fresh Paint”, my friend came up with the name because of how fresh paint made everything seem so new. I was out of college starting a new beginning so it seemed fitting.
The post that started everything. This was when I realized who I was and exactly what I wanted of life. As a twenty something, life can be weird and for the most part we don’t actually know anything. Good news is the fun part really is figuring it out-looking back at least 😉
Ahhh, this one was about loving and losing. I went through such a weird time where I didn’t know if I wanted to be with my high school sweetheart. We took a break and about four months after I started talking to a guy who wound up being absolutely bonkers. Whew, that was a close one.
- It’s all about inner strength and how everything you really need is inside of you. I was in such a bad spot when I wrote this. It was at a time after the break-up of a century. I wound up fleeing town for a promotion out of Dallas, Texas and was in a bad spot until I wrote this and “like, realized” as Kylie likes to say.
Here’s where I learned that life is about the journey, not the destination and to love life at every moment-even if it’s not perfect. Scratch that, especially if it’s not perfect.
The post that went “viral”…. okay or viral for me at that point. It was the most shares I ever received on Facebook and views based on Google Analytics.
More misconceptions about a college degree can be found here…. sorry not sorry 😛
Ever thought you were capable of achieving more? That you were existing rather than living? This one is for you! This was also my first guess post !! To say I was over the moon about someone actually wanting to post MY writing?? Me??? So over the moon, I celebrated with vegan ice cream 😉
I’m all about personal development and tracking my progress toward my goals. I love setting goals but I love scratching them off even more 😉 Cheers to ending 2016 and bringing in a new year!
Wrapping up 23 and bringing in 24-this is what I’ve learned so far as a twenty something.
A post dedicated to the good, the bad, and the ugly! & being thankful for everything in-between. My life really started to change when I adopted a grateful heart.
We’re moving forward and things are really starting to look up – the most shares I’ever received were on this post about moving past the hurdles in life and going after what you really want.
I’ve always loved a good boss babe, extra cheers to women doing their thang <3
Here’s where I fell even more in love with Organic Beauty + Nutrition and became a Vegan Health Coach.
You’re in control of every aspect of your life.
Exactly one year away from home so of course I had to write about it 😉 Here’s what I learned and loved.
I got into affiliate marketing and tried to teach all my frandz how they can make an income doing the same.
Yay, my first sales in affiliate marketing for all my hard work! It IS possible!
I couldn’t imagine what life would be like my little happy place that I call a blog, I am so thankful for t
