The Journey So Far

Ever since I was a little girl, writing was my fave subject and enjoyed creative writing! I would write so many poems and essays and received recognition from a lot of teachers. As you guys already know, Iโ€™m an avid learner and a creative thinker and Iโ€™m always on the run to coming out of my comfort zone, and learning new things in life as much as I can. My goal in life right now is to accomplish my dreams, leverage my skills and showcase all my talents as much as possible. For the past few years, Iโ€™ve been discovering myself and who I really am and have realized that I have so many hidden talents that I wasnโ€™t even aware of! Iโ€™ve been working on many hobbies such as nature photography, drawing, dancing, nail art, poetry and hopefully more in the future haha ๐Ÿ™‚ I really wanted to connect with everyone and create many innovative ideas/tips to portray to the world and inspire many people out there which is the reason why I started blogging.

Blogging has been such an amazing experience and to be honest, one of the best things that I have done in my life so far! I’ve met and made so many incredible and beautiful souls on here and words can’t express how much you all mean to me! Each and every day, as soon as I open up WP, there is so much amount of joy and happiness on my face thanks to each and every one of my followers and my best friends on here! Your encouragement, support, and love has really impacted me and changed my perspective on life! I’ve been blogging for 5 months now and I want to thank you all a million times for making this journey such an amazing and memorable one and I really hope that it continues this way for many years that I’m here on WP! Love you all so much โค โค

My Favorite Thing About Blogging

There are so many haha! Blogging has given me a wonderful opportunity to express my ideas and interests and allowed me to inspire many people on here! It feels nice to share my inner thoughts with you guys since I’m able to relate to some content that you guys post. My most fave thing is the people I’ve met, interacted and became friends with! It’s such a gift to call you guys my friends โค
