We all look for inspiration, motivation, fiber, a drive to get us started for the day right? I can tell you right now, you may not find that here… But you may find something else.
Hello Fresh World is welcoming you to my world. My drive consists of getting the most out of life while working a cubicle job and achieving short term goals. So I guess this is where I begin to introduce myself? Well, I been contemplating my next few sentences for the past couple days now, stressed. I am currently sitting in a tub full of hot water and the inspiration hit me. I am completely blessed. The last time I was sitting in this tub I was about 18 years old. My parents, brother, sister and grandparents were living in this house then, was a quiet house. Now I hear crying babies and teenagers yelling. I’m in the same tub that I was in seven years ago, but now I’m living with my aunt and her six children! I can’t help but to feel blessed, blessed to be sheltered, blessed to have a huge family, blessed for my health and a hot tub to soak in. In between those seven years, I was in and out of homes, in and out of emotions with parents divorcing, instability with the economy and in and out with the incapability of knowing how to love, ultimately in and out of knowing how to live. Being in between those worlds, I often forgot how to be thankful. I let a lot of friendships and love past me by. I let amounts of opportunities past me by because I was “too busy” dwelling on dreams I wanted but didn’t ultimately pursue. I was putting myself in pressure with education, career goals and the hope of the American dream that my parents wanted for me. I forgot how to be thankful, I forgot how to live for myself.
I’m 25 now, and I stopped looking for inspiration and stopped dwelling on ideas. Within the last year I’ve created inspiration. I’ve been creating my life so it could wake me up and motivate me. I decided to make this blog with the goal to create, and remind myself and the years after me that a simple act of doing, thankfully, you can achieve it all. Possibilities are endless. I want to inspire. I want to give without looking back. And within this new-found world I hope I can make a difference to at least the generations after me.
Hello fresh world, I’ve been sitting in this now cold tub for the last hour, welcoming you.
