I saw this on The SITS Girls Facebook page the day and it got me thinking…
…what am I passionate about? I realized that on this blog I haven’t been just really passionate about much. I try to stay middle of the road so I don’t offend anyone with my opinions but in real life, that’s not who I am.
I am passionate about this blog. I love writing and getting to interact with every single one of you. I have met some truly amazing women through blogging both online and in real life and for that I am grateful. I love writing about everything from my everyday life to special occasions and sharing my favorite recipes, beauty products, DIY projects, and just everything in between!
I am passionate about reading. I started reading at a very young age and remember staying up late with my flashlight under the covers devouring books as fast as I could. I still remember the day my Mom bought me my first Sweet Valley Kids book. I loved it!! And that led to The Boxcar Kids, The Baby Sitters Club, and every book I could get my hands on. I believe that every child should read books for fun and be swept away to far off places and only have happy endings.
I am passionate about my family. I love them to death. I wouldn’t be where I am today if they hadn’t both supported me and pushed me to be better and to do better. There are solo many times I have wanted to give up on certain things but I can always hear my Dad’s voice in my head saying “We don’t give up. If you start something you have to see it through to the end.” My family are pretty great motivators.
I am passionate about healthcare. No, I don’t like the way it’s going right now but that’s just the politics of it. I work in a hospital and I love my job. I love seeing people get good news and I love seeing people get better. I am particularly passionate about women’s health. I was always that friend in high school and college who took her friends to the health department or the college nurse to get them free birth control. I was always the advocate for birth control and safe sex and guess what? None of the friends I helped never got pregnant before they wanted to. I am very pro-life but at the same time I am very pro-birth control.
I am passionate about being myself. I like doing my own thing even if everyone else isn’t doing it. Guess what? I don’t have to follow the crowd to feel good about myself. I think confidence in just being yourself comes with time and age. I was certainly all about jumping on bandwagons and doing exactly what everyone else was in my early twenties. But when I “grew up” and realized that being myself was a whole lot cooler my life changed. I found real friends and life was just so much easier not having to keep up with everyone else.
