I have been tossing and turning this idea around in my head for a long time, wondering who would even read this? Why would I put out my thoughts, my ideas and opinions?
Why do I even want to start writing a blog?
Being the perfectionist that I am and not the best writer per se either, I worried about what people would think and what they would say. But then I thought to myself, “that is also part of why I wanted to do this in the first place, no?”
Like anything else, I always want to do it completely, wholeheartedly with perfection. But we are all human, we are all not perfect and as much as I want to do something to the standard that would be in my “perfect little world,” it will never end up being achievable because I didn’t just do it solely for the love of it. This is a common occurrence with most things I have ventured into throughout my whole life. I end up putting things on hold because I don’t get to do it to the standard that I believe it should be done. Do I even make any sense? Anyone else think or feel this way sometimes, or is it just me?
I thought blogging was not something for me, it was such a new concept for me which I wasn’t that all interested in. Times have now changed and I am at a point in my life where I want to share my experiences, my passions and my stories with those who may be going through the same in their lives on their journey of finding themselves… I am still on my own journey but I am here to share it with the world as it progresses. And so, this is what has brought me to start my own blog. Let me explain further a little bit about why…
My main interest has always been something creative. I loved to draw when I was younger, I was semi good at it as well. My father was and still is an Interior Designer and he draws everything from scratch. My brother is an excellent artist and this has now formed into his profession, he is a Graphic Designer and a damn good one too. Here is a link to his work on Facebook – HK Design Aesthetics.

I guess it was in my genes to be creative, I loved to make things, keep my hands busy and recreate. I liked origami, I liked writing letters, I liked to draw, I liked to be creative and throughout everything, I learnt different things that I liked to do in a creative form. As time went on, I lost touch of some of the creative things, life just became busy. However I did stumble upon a new found love and all over again the creative juices started to flow, after getting married and seeing my professional photos done.
Photography sparked a new interest, a new venture and a creative outlet. I started to see things more with an even evident, creative eye.
So this has lead me now to delve into the world of blogging, I hope you enjoy and follow my journey.
Thanks for dropping by, lots of love…
