“So tell me a little about yourself?”

I hate this question. It would seem like an easy question to answer but it gets me every time whether in social settings or professional. A first blog post is suppose to tell you, the reader, all about myself right?

Where does one start when they have to tell people about themselves? When I was 18 or 19 and making new friends I would ask them out to coffee and then we would swap life stories for hours.

At age 26, I can’t remember the last time I told someone my ‘life story’ let alone in one sitting. I guess being in my mid-twenties, I’ve passed ‘the struggle years’. Dare I say I’ve even hit stability?

It helps this year I married the most amazing, kind, smart, and stable man I’ve ever met whom has helped encourage me to accomplish all my goals. He balances out my spontaneity quite well. We’re like PB & J.

As a teenager I think I forgot to make goals passed graduating college, start a career, buy a car, have my own apartment, and find the one with whom I want to spend the rest of my life. Life is not a checklist, but I found I have treated it like that for quite some time. Now I’m left with “What’s next?”

Life as list can make you lose sight of WHO you want to be and what you are passionate about. Before the 9-5 grind I had a lot of passion about a lot of things.

This blog is my creative outlet. It’s my discovery zone (shout out for any 90s kids if you remember DZ). I am hoping to use this space as a place to recover my passions and explore self-improvement as a young married professional. (Not that I’m a professional at marriage, still figuring A LOT out about that). Thus marks my first post, my first foot in front of another.

“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”

― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
