The leap...

As many may surmise...
This is my first blog post. Let me go ahead and clear this up right now... I seriously don't know what I'm doing. Hahaha, for real... I am so computer challenged it's ridiculous. I don't know how to make my page pretty, add links or badges and the like... So, although this may seem like a boring blog to follow for a while. My hope is to get all snazzy with it, like so many of the ones I have begun to admire, visit and or follow. At this time I would also like to disclose that my grammar will be poor, and my spelling even poorer, and run-on sentences are my specialty... so if you are a stickler for that kind of thing, well... thanks for stopping by ;)

I think my timing for beginning this adventure is weird sorta, being the New Year and all. I'm not a resolution making kinda of girl, so it has nothing to do with that. This is something I've been contemplating for some time. What's been holding me back was knowing I would totally have to mutter through the process, and risk looking like a dork. I have no "in life" person that can offer me much help with this sort of venue. (meaning none of my family or personal friends have ever had a blog)
I slooowly started thinking... so what! It dawned on me that until I started plunking around on the damn thing it would never happen. Was I willing to risk not ever doing it ... just so I could look cool doing it? NOPE.

"Everyone starts somewhere"... We've all had this banged into our heads and have repeated it to ourselves through out our lives... yes? And so many times though, we let our fear hold us back from starting... anything! It's sooo easy to let fear of looking like a "dork" stop you. Especially in the face of many who you admire and who have mastered what you are trying to achieve (in your own right) or hope to become a part of.

I believe that doing it wrong until you get it right is a very brave and admirable thing to do. So... in summary, take your leap! You simply cannot fail... due to the fact that you WILL learn something on the way down or up ♥ xo~ajae
