Today Is The First Day Of The Rest Of My Life...And Of My Blog

At 25 years young, I’ve come to realize that the most important question to ask myself as new opportunities arise, new and old friends surface and exciting activities pop up is “Why not?” and not “Why?”

Case in point, I’ve always thought it would be fun to start a blog. I like to write…I like to read…I like to read other people’s blogs…why not write my own? I’ve found it easy to get caught up in the “Why’s” and “What ifs” though and make excuses why I might not want to start one. Why would anyone read what I have to say? What if people read it and don’t like it? What should my theme be and what if I can’t keep it up?

Well, I’ve decided if you don’t like it, don’t read it. And there is more to life than ONLY fashion, or ONLY baking, or ONLY fitness. My theme can be life – the ins and outs of being a typical 25 year old, which naturally will involve lots of outfits, (eating) baked goods, working off those baked goods, and everything in between…all while on a budget.

I regularly try to fit all of the aforementioned into my life and no good answers come to mind if I ask myself “Why not?” splurge on a new top once in awhile or run that extra mile at the gym or indulge in a cupcake now and then. Any reason I might come up with is just an excuse posing as a legitimate reason.

Life’s too short, though, to ask “Why?” so I’m asking myself “Why not?” start my own blog…today? I hope you enjoy!
