Reflections: Here's to New Beginnings!

Why I decided to blog

Hey there and welcome to my personal blog, "The Unboxxed". I really enjoy writing, but it took a lot for me to make the decision to start an official blog. I know! It seems like something that shouldn't be difficult to do right?

Sadly, I have not felt the desire to really do anything for more than a year. Long story short, I've been in a rut. I have not been happy with myself or the kind of life I've been living. It just seems as though I've been stuck in one place for an insane amount of time. Just watching as life moves along without me.

I don't know for sure, but maybe this is something that everyone goes through at some point in their lives. For all I know, this could be an odd twist on a midlife crisis or just one of those mind-altering moments that constantly has you question what the heck you’ve been doing with your life up to this point.

Does that even make sense?  Yes? No? Maybe…?

Don’t get me wrong though, I’m not one of those dark, depressing, ‘why does the world hate me?’, types. Lately, I’ve just been reflecting on everything that I’ve been through and everything that I am currently doing within my life. It’s like I have suddenly realized that I’m 28 years old and I don’t really know who I am yet. How does that even happen? Have I been asleep all this time? I feel as though I’ve lost myself and my voice and I don’t like it.

Can you even imagine looking around and feeling as though everyone else around you has their shit together and you can’t even figure out whether you want tea or coffee in the morning? This thing called life is truthfully more complicated than it should be.

I can rant, complain and whine about it for ages but I won’t. Instead I’m actively making the decision to change and give myself a new start. No more standing still and watching life pass me by, no more worrying about what other people will think about what I’m doing. I hope to find myself by writing and opening up about my life, my thoughts and my personal opinions.

This is me giving myself an actual chance and I hope you enjoy reading and following me on my new journey.

Take it or leave it.
