For the past few years, I’ve had the idea to start a blog, but I always felt like I couldn’t find a voice. I knew I had things I wanted to share. I knew that I have experiences that I felt could help others, and I knew that reaching out and feeling like I could actually make a difference was something that made me happy. What I lacked was confidence. I always worried. Will people like me? Will they accept what I have to say? And how can I compete with the millions of bloggers out there? What can I bring to the table that is so different?
But something beautiful happened this past weekend. Something that made me decide to take the plunge and to dive right in. I was browsing through one of my favorite pages on the internet Humans of New York and I saw a post that really touched my heart. See the post below:
The reason why I was touched is because I understand homelessness. I understand it because I met my husband when he was homeless himself. After reading the post, I felt compelled to tell this man that it could get better, that there was still hope. I asked my husband for permission to tell his story and although he was hesitant he allowed me to share our experience for the world to see. See my comment below:
The outpouring of love, support and messages we received was the most incredible thing I have ever experienced. I got messages from people all over the world. People who were all touched for different reasons, with entirely different backgrounds and struggles of their own. They all reached out to us to give us support, to ask us for guidance, or simply to just vent. I loved every message, every story, and every beautiful photo we received and decided that I needed to open up my heart to those who so kindly did the same with us.
This blog will be all about living a life that is Balanced, Bold and Boundless. I called this the B3Way. We will share our tips to success, and ways in which you can live a life that is meaningful and honest to your purpose and potential. To be successful, you need to take care of your mind, body, spirit and most importantly your environment. We’ll talk about all of those things because if one of those areas is lacking, you will never achieve your full potential. My goal is to make B3 a community for people who want to grow and support each other. I believe we can build a network of people who believe in kindness, giving back, and persevering regardless of the hardships that they face. If that is you, Join us. I’ll be telling you about the different ways in which you can get involved over the next couple of weeks.
