Chh Chh Changes

Where To Begin? 

Starting a blog can be a daunting prospect for someone who isn't used to the idea of putting herself out there for the world to see. A person can have a variety of reasons as to why she should start a blog. (For the purpose of this blog, I will reference the gender 'she'. It is much easier than 'he/she' or using 'they'.) These reasons can vary from promoting herself, both personally and professionally; reviewing books, products, movies, song and so on. The list is endless. However, every once in a while, a person decides to blog about some personal choices and changes that she wants to make in her life. These changes can also vary from personal beliefs to dieting to the way she views the world or whatever she wants it to be. 

So, I have decided to blog. Why? Because I want to. Because I want to make some changes. Because I have reached a point in my life where I feel I am spinning the wheels going nowhere. Because I want to hold myself accountable by documenting it.  It is quite scary for me to put this out there. Whether it is read by someone coming across accidentally or not, it doesn't matter. I need to get it out there for myself. Actually, it might be kind of boring and whoever sees it may not read it all the way. The person may also feel my blog is quite pretentious and self serving. Is it though?

Maybe not pretentious but self serving, yes. If someone I know, personally, read this she may think "Damn, why is she complaining? She's got stuff going on in her life." While that may be true, creating and writing in this blog has nothing to do with what I have going on. I will be the first to say that I have a great and wonderful family. I have a husband who works for the family and takes care of us and three amazing boys who brighten my world every single day. 

But this blog is not to complain (though there may be times when I will have to vent). This blog is for me to take a look at myself and what I want to do. I do need to be selfish because in order for me to help others, I need to be selfish and take care of me. If you've ever been on a plane before, right before take off, the flight attendant goes through safety procedures. One of the things she says is when the oxygen masks are released put yours on FIRST then help others around you. I always remember this because quite frankly if you don't help yourself first how are you expected to help others? That is not being selfish. You still need to maintain humility and know that what you do, you do for others. Others can be your immediate family members, really close friends, distant friends, acquaintances or any stranger out there. So, in that selfishness, I need to make some changes in my life. Nothing big, just little things. I still need to remain true to myself thus the name of my blog Same DiNamics. I quite like it.

If you decide to read this (no one probably never will and that's okay). I thank you for joining me on this journey to self discovery (cliche, I know) and enjoy the ride.
