Is it weird that after I publish a blog, I never go back and read it? Once I click the publish button, I feel as if I released bottled up emotions or feelings. To go back and read it would be me taking the emotions back in. At least that’s how I feel.
Mental Stimulation has really served as a great outlet for me. Looking back, I was very apprehensive in actually starting a blog. I was afraid of what people would think about me or what they’d say. However, I knew that in order for me to progress in life, I have to not let the opinions of others dictate my life.
I mention this quote a lot on my blog:
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”- Steve Jobs
This is a quote that changed my life. This is the quote that inspired Mental Stimulation. Since the start of Mental Stimulation, I began expressing how I felt without caring about others thoughts and opinions. I’ve never had this much confidence until I started blogging. Seeing how people like, comment, and subscribe to my blog only pushes me further into expressing myself.
Blogging helped me realize that everyone has a story and that we all go through things in life, whether it’s good or bad. However, not everyone is brave enough to tell their story. One day I’ll be able to use Drake’s line from Crew Love: “I told my story and made his-tory.”- Drake
Thank you to everyone who have supported me thus far. It’s great to know that someone is inspired by me. Because of you all, I found my inner voice.
