So Why Am I Here?

“When you cease to strive to understand, then you will know without understanding.”
Chinese Proverb on Knowledge

I’m not sure what the blogging etiquette is when it comes to writing posts so I’m kind of winging it. I don’t have a plan for this blog. Not a proper plan anyway.

So why am I here..? To share. Simple.

I know I’ve said it a million times already – and its only my forth post; including my About page, but I feel like I have to keep saying it. Why? To remain focused and not lose sight of why I created this space.

The Lyd Blog was created for me to share. For us to share. There are some questions that my friends, family, and even church members can not answer. Not really. Questions where you’d need to have experienced it to understand it. Not to know the answers but to simply understand it. Some of it if not all.

“Understanding is much deeper than knowledge.
There are many people that know you, but there are very few that understand you”
Unknown Author

And as much as I’d like to say I’m a social butterfly, the blogosphere has more people than my friends, family and church folks combined. So why not try it out.

Perhaps if I turn my thoughts into words I could answer my own questions and provide information to someone else along the way. Good or bad, information is information. That’s what The Lyd Blog is about. Information. Information on life struggles, life choices, life blessings and life goals. The what, when, where, and hows of life.

Maybe when I look back at my words I’ll understand my story and why I am where I am.

I hope you’ll join me.

Am I Ready?

“If we wait until we’re ready, we’ll be waiting for the rest of our lives”
Lemony Snicket

It’s taken me almost a year to get The Lyd Blog started. I had a domain name, a hosting service a design – I was set. But I just couldn’t get started. I was so focused on naming my blog and what to put on the About page I got discouraged and abandoned it.

Then a lot of things started happening in my life. Things I felt someone out there is also going through. Things we have to deal with in our twenties. Decisions that need to be made. I thought perhaps I could help.

Within a year I graduated, got a new job, started a serious relationship, learned to drive, got a car and a whole bunch of other ‘grown up’ things that to us.

So I decided to blog about it all. Document these moments as they come. The good, the bad and the somewhat confusing bits of life.But I don’t want to just blog about my life. I want to talk about life. I guess I feel I have something to say. Whether it’s unique? I don’t know. Will it be comforting? I hope so.

What I do know is that I want to offer my experiences, thoughts and opinions about this life. To learn from others. Have you gone through the same issues? Do you share my world views? If not, why not?

I’m full of questions just like you. My hope is to help each other figure it all out. Or at least try to.

So I encourage you to get involved. Feel free to share with me as I share with you.

I’m ready. Are you?

Where do I start?

“The start is what stops most people.”
Don Shula

Writing my first post was harder than I thought – it took me 4 weeks to be exact. Almost as long as it took me to write my first online dating profile.

What do you say, how do you say it? Is it too much? Is it too little?

I want to share my life experiences and random musings but where do I start? At 24 years old I’m at that point where I feel like I’ve achieved so much yet I know I still have so far to go.

Yes I’m 24 years young – I told you you would learn more about me as you read my posts.

I’m currently in my first professional job since finishing my degree. The last year of university was hard. Very hard. But I can definitely say with confidence that God showed how much he loves me. With support from my friends and family and constant prayer I made it through. It’s in those moments you know who is truly there for you.

Now I’m focusing on building experience, growing my skills and preparing for the life I want to live. Husband, kids, picket fence and a cat or a dog – my boyfriend and I are still debating about that. I feel I need to start preparing for these things but I’m not entirely sure how.

That’s where The Lyd Blog comes in. That’s where you come in. Though I created this blog, The Lyd Blog is not just for me. Your stories and wisdom are just as meaningful and useful.

So join me as I share my world through my eyes. And i hope you will share yours.
