For those of you that don’t know me, my name is Moriah. But most of you probably know me cause I can’t imagine anyone who doesn’t know me would care much about what I have to say. At least not yet…
So…believe it or not, I’ve been wanting to start a blog for years. At first what stopped me was the fact that when you write a blog and you share personal experiences, people know more about you. And that’s kind of scary! There are things I don’t want my family or my coworkers or my friends to know about me, but at the same time, I feel the need to share. So once I got over that and realized I don’t care what people think about me, it seemed like everyone and their mother was starting a blog. I’ve always grown up not wanting to be like everyone else or seem like a follower. But by purposely NOT doing something because everyone else is, is still letting others affect your decisions. So here I am, it’s February 7, 2017 right now and I’m writing this…I’m writing this intro that will one day, hopefully in the near future, be my first blog post. We shall see.
Someone asked me what I was going to write about…and honestly I didn’t know the answer. The short answer was, well…me! But I was almost embarrassed to even say that. Like, who out there really cares about this random girl from Vermont who is (was!!) a server that lives in Ohio and has never really done anything big or exciting with her life? But to be honest…I love to help people. I love to share any kind of possible advice or thoughts I can in hopes that if nothing else, people can maybe learn from my mistakes and experiences. That doesn’t make me an expert. It doesn’t make what I’ve been through more important than anyone else’s past or present situations. None of that.
Even if no one really reads this, it’s a releasefor me. It’s a way for me to talk through things (with myself, out loud, to whomever cares to read it), and maybe help someone along the way. You can read this cause you’re nosey, you can read this cause you’re curious, or you can not read this at all (in which case I don’t really need to be addressing you, but oh well!). But either way, i’ll be here!
Just a little warning in advance: for those that do find themselves intrigued enough by this initial post and want to continue to go on this journey with me, this blog will be raw. It will not always be G rated. It will not always be happy and it might not always be something you thought would come from me. But I think that’s the beauty of this all…I am learning to be me and embrace who I am and what has shaped me and be ok with it. I will do my best not to offend anyone close to me or put anyone else’s business out there for the world. These are all my late night thoughts, all my shower epiphanies and all my random feelings about everything that’s always going on in my over thinker’s mind.
