Because I Can…

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “All About Me.”

When I started blogging I wanted my blog to be a source of inspiration and motivation.The title I chose for my blog has been the same since I started and it has never changed. That is because I truly believe that we can all change if we desire to. That we can be an inspiration to others, even when we feel at our darkest. That by saying and believing that “Because I can…” even if it is the smallest thing can have a profound effect on others.

I have had some dark times since starting my blog and wondering if I shouldn’t stop blogging. I have wondered if having a blog titled “Because I can…” wasn’t hypocrisy at it’s worst because I have often felt that I have lost my way and that maybe I can’t do it. But, I refuse to do that. I refuse to give in because at some point I truly believe that I will find my rhythm and inspiration again to write and to find my path. Sometimes we all stray and get lost in the havoc of the world and our own self-doubt. The trick is to never give up. We may not end up in the places we envisioned or in the way we envisioned it. But, it doesn’t mean that that is not the place we were meant to be or the trying does not make a difference. It makes all the difference in the world.

I will continue to write and I will continue to take my pictures and find my path. And I hope I can continue to inspire others to keep going even when they don’t believe it. And I hope I will never stop saying and believing in  “Because I Can.”

    I like your thoughts on this. We can always be an inspiration to others even when we don’t realize it. I think simply “realizing” this fact makes us live our daily lives better. A very nice post. -OM
