Why I started this blog

Hey guys!
Today’s post will be about why I chose to start blogging.

I had thought of blogging for quite sometime, but I wasn’t sure about what I would blog about, but I decided I’d start a blog anyway. Around February I started exploring a little more, I started travelling a little more, sometimes with a group of friends but most times on my own.

To most people that’s pretty standard, but I’ve been a pretty closed up person for a long time, the idea of stepping out of my routine of university classes and home terrified me, sent me into a panic, and for some reason made me feel incredibly guilty. But then I read a quote which I believe is by Muhammad Ali:

“A man who views the world at 50 the same way he did at 20, will have wasted 30 years of his life.”

That quote made me realize that if I continue to stick to routine I’ll be the person that will have wasted those years of my life. Routine is definitely comfortable but if there’s anything I’ve learnt this year it’s that exploring and trying new things, even the smallest of things really do bring happiness.

The goal of starting this blog was to share my experiences with others and hopefully inspire people to go out and step out of their routine.
I invite you to view the universe with me.

  1. I love your blog and your title/tagline! I think that it will definitely inspire others to try things and have new experiences. I can’t wait to try the honey/cinnamon tea. I have been on a honey/ginger tea kick lately. 🙂

  2. Your call to action, to inspire others, has been successful – I have never heard that quote from Ali, but it definitely resonates. How often have I found myself look at the “same” sunrise and not appreciated how much more beautiful it was from the day before?

    Wow!

  4. It’s always good to experience more things be they sights, sounds, or food. And there’s always the wonderful feeling of returning home once more and relaxing there for a while. Thanks for looking at my blog. Yours looks like it will be a little bit of a breath of fresh air for me.

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog. As you could tell, my early morning view of the blood moon, though disappointing was a good experience anyway. There’s nothing like some fresh air at 3 in the morning!!!
    Looking forward to reading more from you.

  6. Hey! Loved the quote a lot! I guess I’m a lot different from all of you. I actually had to start this for my 10th Grade Web Design Class. I am so glad I did. Even when school is out I will keep going! Keep up the good work.
