Sometimes I wonder...what if I never started this blog? How different would my life be? What would I be doing today? Right now, I'm sitting outside writing this blog post in the middle of a Monday (feeling like the luckiest bitch). If I hadn't started blogging, would I have spent 8 hours today trapped in a cubicle working for people who don't appreciate me?
This weekend I met for brunch with some blogging friends: Gina, Tammy, and Emily. We spent a couple hours sipping our lattes and talking about the most random shit. Seriously. Random. The kind of stuff that I would talk to my "real life" friends about. It made me realize that my blogging friends are also my real life friends. And if I hadn't started blogging.....these friendships wouldn't exist.

When I started blogging I didn't know what to expect. I didn't know it would introduce me to so many amazing, talented women throughout the world. I didn't know it would give me the opportunity to go to Australia. I didn't know it would so positively effect my business. Blogging has helped this slightly lost mid-west-gone-west-coast-girl find her purpose. And all because I just sat down one day and....wrote. Without expectations.
I feel like in today's society, people want immediate gratification. They are so focused on quick results that it makes them miss the point. You've got to enjoy the journey or no one is going to want to enjoy the journey with you.
