First all of all I’d like to say yes, I know what you’re thinking. That I’m totally slacking and have forgotten about my website, blah blah blah. But believe me when I say, no I haven’t. You know, sometimes life happens and you just run out of things to say or in my case, WRITE. Lol.
Anyway I’m back again And that’s because I can’t possibly miss my website’s first anniversary! Yayyyy! *happy dance!*
Truth is, I still can barely wrap my head over the fact that I ACTUALLY did open my own self-hosted website! A year ago, I was hesitant to start this journey and even more apprehensive to tell people about it. I honestly felt that it’s lacking in so many ways (I know it is up to this moment) and that, I’m not capable enough to put my thoughts out there for everyone to see and READ. But I guess, things turned around for me and here I am!
Writing was my first love. I started writing my thoughts down when I was in third grade. From then on, I haven’t been able to find a better way to express myself. The decision to finally realize one of my goals was quite a roller-coaster ride, to say the least. This website was costly to begin with, and it took tons and tons of courage to run it. There were sleepless nights and lots of tears! (A bit dramatic but yes that happened!)
However, seeing my name right before that ‘.com’ (lifebitsbyclaire.com) is truly elating. It just gives me the feeling of satisfaction that I may be one step closer to a certain dream. It maybe small for others but it’s huge for me! Imagine a kid holding his dream toy for the first time! Yes, that feeling! It’s trivial for some but it makes me think that I’m making strides for myself. It’s a decision I’ll always be proud of. I have finally learned to let go of my worries and bare my thoughts to people. It’s something I’ll never regret doing.
I know for sure that this page is nowhere near to perfection but, who cares? I’m just gonna wing it! HAHA! Sometimes you just have to make that leap and follow your heart no matter how small it may seem for others. Most important thing is that, you’re doing it for YOU and it makes your heart full. Go for that dream, dearies! *winks*
