Well it has been almost two years since my first attempt at this blog. I had all good intentions of being a consistent blogger, but clearly that was not the case. At that point, I’m not sure I was ready for a steady relationship, even if it was just with a blog. I had many priorities in life and writing down my thoughts and feelings was not one of them. Like any relationship, a blog take work. It takes effort and dedication to make it even slightly worthwhile. I think am at a place now where I truly want to blog. I want to look back and know what I was thinking; I want to know what was going on in this brain of mine. I always use the excuse of not knowing what to write about. This time, although I still used that as an excuse, it didn’t seem like a very good reason to opt out again. I just need to blog about anything and everything that I am interested in and passionate about. I was talking to a dear friend Abby tonight and she gave me the advice to blog about whatever I can put passion behind. If that is school, so be it. If it is my hatred of early morning shift at work, that’s what it will be.
I really just want something that I will be able to go back to and learn from. I want to make correlations between where I ended up and a decision I made months or years prior. I want to take you on a journey that has no endpoint in sight. I don’t promise that it will be an easy ride, that it will make much sense, or that you will always enjoy yourself. What I can promise is that you will get 100% me. I’m sick of being who I think people want to see. I want to be myself. I want to be genuine. I want to be Elisabeth Michal Steckle.
Are you ready? I am.
