Is being real with your online presence a super pain in your butt, like it is for me??
It’s so funny. I can write for pages in my physical journal, but trying to write for a blog is like,
Does this happen to any of you?
Well, here’s to getting better.
Anyway, what made me want to “journal” on here is my new morning routine. I have been reading Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod, which, if you haven’t heard of it or read it, do it now. You can buy it here on Amazon. I bought the Entrepreneurial version. It will change your entire life. I started the book March 1st and I have slowly been making my way through it, reading intently and taking it all in. I haven’t made notes yet, but I plan to re-read it and take tons of notes. For now, I’m just absorbing it all. And let me tell you, I am growing. I can already feel a difference in my everyday attitude and mindset and that, in itself, is worth the $15.79 I paid for the book.
I’ve had this notion that I need to work on myself, become my best self before I can expect my business to be successful. The book reiterated this, so I know it’s exactly the right notion!
I also want to work on finding my voice online, being more transparent and authentic. So, if you know me personally, and this journal doesn’t sound like me, be sure to let me know right away.
It’s not that I try to put up a wall online, I just don’t ever think of sharing personal things, and really, everyone’s voice online is a little different than the way they actually talk. It’s hard to be completely authentic in your voice online, right?!
That’s what I want to learn how to perfect. No more sounding like other bloggers, no more thinking the little things aren’t good enough to blog. From now on, my blog will be my online journal and if something seems silly to blog, and I do it anyway, you’ll either read it or you won’t. And I’m ok with either. I know everything I have to say won’t be super interesting, but it will be me, and that’s what I want to put out there; myself.
I hope to get to know myself more while you all do too! I also hope to get to know all of you in the process, so share something fun about yourself below in the comments!
