What Am I Doing?!

All my doubts and all my fears just boil down to that one question. That and "Why Am I Doing It?"

I usually don't have to be doing something crazy. At least, it wouldn't appear crazy to another person. Preparing for a career? Looking for a job? Going on a date? 
These things are normal. But for me, most things have me second guessing myself.
What if my best doesn't cut it? What do I have to offer? What if I am not enough?
And then, it's all downhill and I undermine myself before the race has even started.

This is how the blog started.

Out of the blue, my phone rang (trust me, that is a rare phenomenon). My friend M was on the phone and she sounded really excited. 
I have an idea, you should start a blog.
I thought she went crazy. She then proceeded to explain as to why I should. I'm sorry to say that I don't remember that part of the story because I was ready to forget after the call ended. Why should I? What would I talk about? Aren't there other people who are better to do that? Then she said something that stuck with me.
No one is you. No one can tell a story like you because they don't have your experiences, your perspectives, your anything. Your story matters.
And that's where the title came from too.

I matter and my story does too. It may not matter to a lot of people but that doesn't mean that I don't matter.  It's common sense but sometimes I lack that.

Well, let me now introduce myself. I'm a 20 something recent graduate. I love writing and hope to become an author. I love to read. I'm terribly shy but my friends don't think that at all. I'm also a believer learning how to walk with Him on a daily basis.

Basically, I am a girl trying to figure out what she is doing and sharing it with those who care to read.

I'm glad you are here and I hope that you learn something and have fun too.




  1. Ahhhhh...I become more and more proud of you each day. Your boldness inspires me and encourages me that it's ok to be myself. I love you so much and am glad that I was here for the first so when the hundredth, thousandth and millionth comes I can say I was here supporting you from the beginning.
