Why I Started This Blog

Since I just started this blog, I thought now would be the perfect time to share my “why” with you all. I want you to know more about what I’m trying to do and why I want to blog.

First, who am I?

My name is Alyssa and I’m a twenty-something wife, daycare teacher, and writer. I haven’t done any professional writing, but I’ve been passionate about writing for all of my life.

I’ve wanted to start a blog for some time now, but I just recently decided to bite the bullet and actually go through with it. But why did I want to start a blog in the first place? That’s a good question.

Basically, I wanted to start a blog because I want to reach people. I want to share what I’m learning during this journey we call life and I want to possibly help other people who might be going along the same journey or trying to learn the same things. Honestly, I feel like God has led me to start this blog for some reason.

I will be 100% authentic and honest about myself. My struggles, my problems and solutions, my journey, and my experiences, everything will be laid out on the table. I feel like that’s the best way to really inspire and motivate others.

I want to share my thoughts and my heart with others in the hopes of helping anyone out there. But I also want to learn and grow myself. I want to create a community of strong women. I truly hope that my message resonates with some of you!

What do I want to write about?

  • Faith: I’m fairly new to being a Christian and there’s still a lot that I have to learn, so I want to share as I learn things and hopefully inspire others on their journey.
  • Intentional living: Mindfulness, balance, and living with purpose is very important to me, but it can be difficult. I hope to help others live more intentionally and create their best lives as I do the same.
  • Creativity: To me, expressing yourself is essential to having a healthy mind. I would love to share my journey as I try new creative endeavors and improve myself creatively, and connect with other creatives.

My ultimate goal with this blog is to encourage other women to grow in their faith (if they’re a Christian), live a purposeful life, and express themselves. My hope is that this can turn into something beautiful someday!
