Here Goes Nothing

I’ve always wanted to start a blog. But I have also always found some reason to procrastinate or chicken out. I'm good at doing that believe it or not. This is kind of scary, to be honest. It's personal. But there's something to be said about people who take a leap of faith and jump off the cliff despite an idea of knowing how, when, or where they would land. I want to be one of those people.

10, 20, 30 years from now... I want to have at least attempted ALL of my hearts desires, not just the ones society deemed acceptable or appropriate for me.

I’m not even really sure how I came up with the title Breathe, it came from God I'm certain. For months and months, I struggled to find the perfect name for this new venture. And honestly, some of the things I thought of were ridiculous. But one night it finally just clicked and I was overwhelmed with contentment and peace.

The word "breathe" resonates with different people for many different reasons, yet it's still the same word. For me, it represents vulnerability and risk-taking, yet it also comforts me. We all secretly remind ourselves to breathe during life's most difficult and exciting moments.

I’m challenging each and every person who's reading this right now to take the first steps towards accomplishing a goal they've always had. Let’s do this together! Make your ideas, your reality. We’ve been taught to be afraid of failure and should instead welcome it. Forget the judgment and self-doubt that have held you back. 10, 20, 30 years from now... you'll be glad you did.
