Happy 3 years! It’s my blogaversary!

My blog is 3 years old today! How did this happen? How has so much time passed? How?

Three years ago today, I started my blog as an outlet for my thoughts and feelings, just 2 short months after losing my dad. I didn’t know what I was doing or where it would go. I just knew I needed to write. I needed a place to put words and sort my thoughts. It may have seemed random and light-hearted at the time, but to me, it was therapeutic.

My whole life and world changed – and evolved – after losing my dad. So much of my life was centered around my dad, even as an adult. The day we said goodbye to him, all of our lives changed drastically. My heart was broken into a million pieces and I needed a place to express that. I would go back to that time in a heartbeat and have it end differently if I could. But, if anything good came from saying goodbye to my dad, it was my blog.

Maybe I didn’t address it specifically, but just putting words in this little space of mine was a big help. Over time, I realized that I needed to take better care of myself, and I began blogging about that, and that has lead me to this point today. Three years later, where I have lost 30+ pounds and have run 7 half marathons and in two days, will sign up for my first full marathon. I blog about working out, losing weight, running, life, and more.

Creating this little space here on the interwebs is probably one of the best things I have ever done. It has allowed me to meet people I never would have met before, it has allowed me to experience things I never would have experienced, and it has given me confidence that I never had before. I am so thankful for my blog and what it has brought me.

I don’t know where it will go or what is next. I will keep doing what I have been doing, documenting my journey and scrapbooking my life. I hope that you will continue to follow along…

Thank you for sharing this with me!
