Change is fun, but I recognize I’m not the best at it. For me, with change comes a lot of reflection during big transition moments. Currently, I am about to end my first semester as a senior in college. I’m finishing up my term as chapter president of my sorority and signing up for capstone courses – but it feels like just yesterday I was a freshman!! In my reflection over the past couple months, I have been thinking a lot about how many things I’ve accomplished, but also how many things I still want to do – one of those things being to start a blog!
I can’t count on my own two hands the number of times I have told my family I wanted to start a blog or Youtube channel (I feel inspired during every school break I’ve had for the last 3 years). My family is always more than supportive, but my own personal contemplation always turns against the idea, convincing myself that “people will make fun of me” or “no one will read it.” (Yes… I’ll admit I tell myself I can’t a lot more than I should.) So recently I told myself it’s time to scratch “can’t” out of my vocabulary because nothing CAN happen if we keep telling ourselves it can’t – right?!
With that, I’m excited to explore this new interest of mine. Although I recognize I don’t have exceptional grammar skills and could probably use some lessons in photography, I realized you don’t need to be perfect to start something. What you need is passion and a willingness to learn. I can do that! 🙂
Now here I am, 21 years old with my whole life ahead of me!!! NotablyNicole will be a place for me to continue to reflect on my experiences in life, while also sharing with you some things that I have learned and loved along the way! My hope is to inspire – even if it’s just one person! Because everyone is on this crazy ride called Life and sometimes we just need a reminder of how to turn our own dreams into reality!
So what do you say – let’s be friends in our pursuit of discovery together!
See you next time!
