The First Blog Post on Sunspot

Hello people!

This post has been a long time coming. For the last couple of years I have debated back and forth with myself and a couple of close friends about whether or not I should start a blog. Almost every time I have brought it up they would say something along the lines of " just go for it!!!!!!" but I was locked in self doubt. The thoughts I had told me no one would read or care and that I have absolutely nothing to write about and it would all spiral into me thinking I only wanted to create a blog because I liked to read them and that made me feel unoriginal. I let these thoughts occupy my brain whenever I would go to my laptop to write something or create something and these thoughts held me back from not only this beautiful blog but other projects as well like creating a YouTube channel, singing in public and so many other things. How was I going to do something I really wanted to try if I talked myself out of it every time? "just go for it!!!!!!" that's how.

Over the past couple of months I have been making more and more changes for my well-being. I have made the decision to not go back to school for my second last year of University, I am moving back to Calgary and I am taking time off from working and things of that nature to focus on myself and my own healing (more details on that will follow this post). One of the things I have been working on is how I talk to myself. This is not easy by any means but it has taken me here, to this page and this blog that I created. The same blog I have been talking about making for years. My days have freed up a little more so I got on my laptop and got down to business. At first I was just playing around with templates and stuff but now I'm into it. So this first post is to say hello, welcome to my thoughts and I hope we get to know each other. This is a safe space where I am going to share with you my experience and perhaps some tips on mental illness, health and wellness and some fun stuff in the middle.

I appreciate all your love and support.

Love and Light,

Sahara
