I have been blogging for about two months now and am only just starting figure this all out. I have two blogs. “Because I can..” are stories of my life, dealing with depression, weight loss, fibromyalgia and chronic pain, anecdotes, inspirational quotes and inspirational stories. I would like people to be inspired to continue working toward their goals of self improvement, self enlightenment and hope. It is difficult sometimes to remain positive with all that I have had happen in my life and the pain I am in in my current life. I was told once that I was a person whose life was full of excuses and that I concentrated on the negative. I have consciously worked towards making my life more positive and to take responsibility for what I do. Self-determination, Self-reliance and spiritual growth are all very important not to just me, but to many people in order to find fulfillment in their lives. I hope to show people that they can do it. Because they can do it.
The other blog is about the time I spend Volunteering with DocUp an organization that helps people financially with utilities and rent. But, they are looking to expand their services in other areas as well. Such as job hunting and resume’ workshops. In the Volunteering blog I hope to inspire people to get out there and volunteer, not just with DocUp, but with any organization that helps their community and their fellow man. There are many projects people can do to help each other and their community. Time can be more valuable than money. Though money is important in funding these organizations, the time you spend helping others doesn’t just pay it towards the person you are helping, but pays it towards the growth of you as a person.
I hope you can look at my blog and let me know what you think. I look forward to reading as many of the posts as I can and give feedback. So many talented people out there with amazing talents and stories. No one person’s story is any less important or undeserving to be told than another’s and I am looking forward to reading about them.
