“Once you become fearless, life becomes limitless.” Today, I’m a fearless 29 year old. I have wanted to start my blog for a long time because I have a lot to say but something has always stopped me. Over the years, lots of people have come to me for advice, whether it’s about crossfit training or pregnancy or my postpartum journey and I have always had answers. Not because I’m an expert on everything but because I have experienced a lot in my 28 years of life. More than 7 years of Crossfit to include owning my own crossfit gym, 5 regionals competitions, 2 of those with a new baby, lots of traveling with and without children, etc. I have learned so much from my experiences and have a lot of knowledge, both good and bad, to share. So what’s been stopping me?
Fear. Fear is what has stopped me from putting my writing out there. Fear of failure, fear of my life being judged, fear of my past being judged, fear of people judging the way I do things or how I raise my children. People are mean and on the interwebs, they’re even meaner because apparently it’s ok to be a jackass from behind a computer screen. Internet warriors and trolls are just waiting for the next person to pounce on because they have nothing better to do with their lives. It’s a good thing my years of being a military brat have given me tough exterior even though I’m a softy at heart and truly believe that love trumps hate. Crap. I just quoted The Big Bang Theory….anyways.
I only have the best intentions and if I can help inspire or be a resource for even one person, than that’s good enough for me. So welcome to my fearless 29. Here’s to making my 29th year the best one yet.
We all have to start somewhere.
