Hello world is the default post on a Word Press website. Typically, it’s a placeholder you remove when you post an actual blog post. However, I thought it the perfect way to start the first post of my new blog. So hopefully the WordPress folks don’t mind me using their line.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?
The mission of this blog is to find the Fabulous in each day and most importantly in ourselves. All too often us women do a great job at finding the fabulous in others. But we fall short when lifting ourselves up and celebrating our fabulousness.
And we deserve it don’t you think!
I know I’ve struggled with celebrating my fabulous tending to minimize my accomplishments. Not wanting the spotlight on me. I don’t think I’m alone in that.
It’s easier to focus our praise and positivity on others than to talk about ourselves. Women are natural caregivers and especially when we have children all our energy and praise goes to them. As I get older and wiser (supposedly) it makes me realize even more how much I need to practice self-love and self-care. I’m worth it!
For a long time, I celebrated the anniversary of my 29th birthday each year when my birthday came around. It was more of a joke rather than a fear of getting older. Though this year I realized I was missing out by not embracing all life had to offer at this stage.
Which is what inspired me to launch a new blog.
This year I turned 47 and while I’m now closer to 50 than 40 I feel more amazing than ever. It surprises me how full of life I am when let’s face it. I’m closer to death than birth at this point. Yeah, I know that sounded morbid but it’s reality. I try not to think of it much but it’s true. I want to live my life to the fullest and be my most fabulous self. We all have a limited time on this earth and we need to make the most of it.
I’ve been blogging for years. I’m also a fiction author and run an online learning community for writers. I wanted to start this new blog lifestyle blog to focus on this fabulous thing called mid-life. A term I didn’t even realize existed until recently. Most of the time I don’t even feel my age. Mentally that is.
You will find a little bit of everything on In Pursuit of Fabulous. Life isn’t one dimensional and I often have shiny object syndrome. I’ve promised myself to be filter-free on this blog which is kind of exciting for me and a little scary. I don’t want to offend anyone but I also want to be 100% real and authentic.
If you’re interested in digging a little deeper into who I am and this blog here are some links.
I hope you’ll stick around and share this journey with me. No matter what stage of life you’re in you’re always welcome.
