Welcome to Maggie’s Mess
Thank you for clicking onto my blog. If you’re new here let me introduce myself. My name is Maggie and I’m a mess so I decided this would be a great chance to start a blog and just be me. So I hope this is a place where you can be just you too.
Hi there fellow human. I hope you are well and experiencing some kind of joy in your life. Whether that be a hot cup of tea to relax you, a bath to soothe you, or a pet or friend to comfort you.
I want you to know that you matter and I’m so happy you’re here.
I’ve been wracking my brain all day at work trying to figure out what my first blog post should be about, how long it should be, and most importantly, who is going to care to read it. I’ve learned that being vulnerable is having courage even if you don’t know the outcome yet. So here I am on this daunting empty screen opening myself to the opportunity to grow and create something I have wanted to do for awhile, but have been too afraid to try.
There have been many moments in my life where I look back and think, “What if I had done this differently?” and “What if I’m not good enough?” These thoughts have plagued me for years and if you’ve ever felt this way, please know you’re not alone and you’re here for a reason. Even if you don’t know what that reason is yet.
Soul searching sounds like a bad thing to me sometimes. I wonder who came up with that term? When I think of soul searching I think of jumping out of airplanes and exploring tropical islands with my lover next to me. I did not expect to be faced with all my problems.
Soul searching is about looking within yourself and finding the things that make your heart smile and want to beat and live. And remember also: this is a journey and everyone is on a different path. I know it’s hard not to compare ourselves with others in the world because we’re all so connected on social media, but are we really connected with eachother?
Are we really connected to ourselves?
I want to challenge you and I want to challenge myself to love ourselves deeply and without judgment so that maybe we can understand ourselves more and grow into the amazing beings that we are.
If you make this promise to yourself and start this journey I promise you won’t regret it a single day of your life.
