If you’re ever seen anything from the personal development world, “finding your why” is something you’re most likely already familiar with.
If you’re not, allow me to explain. Your “why” is your motivation, your inspiration, your passion – why you get up every morning, the thing that drives the passion in your soul.
It’s taken me a long time to find my why. I’ve shared a lot about my personal life in my previous blog My Soul Told Me To. To summarize, it’s taken me a long time to get back to my roots and find myself, to remember my dreams from when I was a kid and acknowledge that my 7-year-old self was smart enough to know my “why”, and it just got lost along the way.
I have always wanted to help people. Ever since I was young, helping people was the main drive behind any career ambition – writer, lawyer, nurse, and now we’re back to writer. I love the feeling of helping someone, but a little extrinsic motivation with good intentions never hurt anyone!
I also love to write (clearly). I have half a dozen ideas for books, and getting back into blogging is something that’s been keeping me up at night.
So my why: I want to help people through words, through my writing. I want to write books that help people heal. I want to be a resource for wellness and mental health. I want to eventually serve as a virtual therapist. I want to be the light for someone who feels surrounded by darkness.
This is my intention with this blog. As I’ve said, anything I post here won’t be necessarily revolving around what’s #trending, because there’s enough of that already. And it won’t be every week, because I want my posts and my writing to be authentic and not curated just to meet a weekly deadline. But I hope to help heal, help educate, and help in any way I can.
