First post. New beginnings.

Ok, so it’s been nearly a month since I joined. I made a promise to myself that I would blog at least three times a week…not off to a great start am I? This got me thinking about how easy it is to make promises to ourselves to grow, be a better person, try new things.

How many times have we done this and how many times do we actually follow through?

So here I am, my first blog post ever. Not a very interesting post but it’s about beginning something new, stepping outside the comfort zone and all that. Well actually, the written word is one of my passions so that shouldn’t be so difficult. It’s more putting it out there for the whole world to see that is the scary (yet oh-so-exciting) thing for me. So here goes…time to upload…

Hold on, before I’m done I just had a thought.

While I’m on the topic of trying new things, I thought it might be a good idea to put out there my other failed promises to myself. The theory being that once they’re out, it might motivate me to actually get started.

1. Read more books – the old saying goes, you can’t be a great writer unless you read and read a lot. (I’ll take book recommendations too guys)

2. Learn photography – nothing fancy, just a beginners stuff to start with like how to set up shots, basic framing etc.

3. Bake a beautiful cake – well the baking thing I’m not so bad at, I’m thinking more about the beautiful side of it. So maybe it should be learn how to decorate a beautiful cake.

Actually, now that I think about it, what I really want to do is create. Create beautiful things for myself and my loved ones to enjoy. And you know what? I’m going to do it and I’m going post my progress on here as I go.

Yep, this is it. This my new promise to myself.

Now tell me, what’s yours?
