Remembering My 'Why'
I started blogging in 2015 because even with all that I was doing, I felt like I needed to do more. I needed a space in which I could express my thoughts and ideas -- not for the sake of ranting, but because I felt like what I had to say had value and had the potential to inspire others.
So, I launched fifteen thirty-one, worked at it for some time, and then life got in the way. I think I got in my way too. I started to question whether what I had to say was as valuable as I'd once thought. Somewhat discouraged, I put my blog on hold to concentrate on what I knew I did best: taking care of my family.
Little did I know that this would draw me back to the reason I started my blog in the first place. My 'why.' I wanted to inspire people. I wanted to show people how putting your heart and soul into everything you do can be the difference between ordinary and extraordinary life. It has nothing to do with what you have or your status, but it has everything to do with knowing that you have a God-given purpose and walking in that purpose each and every day.
All doubts and fears aside, I committed to revive my blog, and so I'm back today for the official relaunch. Yay!
The blog has a new look and feel, but the 'why' is still the same. Every piece of content, whether it's a DIY project or a glimpse into my sometimes crazy, but always comical family life, is meant to inspire you to live intentionally, fully, and expectantly. Now...get ready to live your best life!
