a thank you from an internet nobody;

Happiest Thanksgiving,

If you’re reading this now, let’s start with a thank you. Thank you for taking a second to click on my site. I can’t even tell you how happy it makes me that someone other than me is reading these posts. There are so many blogs out there, and sometimes it feels pointless to be making my own. But hey, I like writing. So I’m gunna do it. Thanks for being one of the few reading it.

A little about me-

I try really hard to appear, be, and feel confident. I think confidence is so important, and I want to encourage others to find their confidence, too. Everyone deserves to feel good about who they are. But for the first time in a long time, my confidence has been wavering. I still like who I am/how I treat people/what I believe in, but I’ve started hearing the question “what will they think of this?” in my head. I’ve started worrying that people think this whole blogging is stupid. But you know what? It can be stupid to you, but it isn’t to me. This blog has been a really big leap of faith for me. Putting my thoughts out for anyone to read is a little scary. It really opens up a channel for people to judge me. I feel immature even typing that, but no matter how old you are, it sucks to feel like people think negatively of you. A good friend of mine helped me realize that I need to stay true to myself on this blog, rather than writing what I think will be successful. I’m going to really try to focus on that from now on. So, if you like me, welcome! If you don’t, you never have to waste another second reading my gibberish. No hard feelings! This leads me to an important quote I try to live my life by-

“I yam what I yam.”

-someoneĀ 

And a little about you-

Whoever you are, you’re important to me, mostly because you’re helping grow my Instagram following. Just kidding. Mostly….? šŸ™‚Ā  Really, you’re important to me because I want to connect with you. I want you to be able to relate to my embarrassing stories, my existential crises, and my attempts at self-improvement. Life can feel really tough some days, and I want us all to do it together. I’m a huge advocate for empowering one another rather than competing with each other. Thank you for following along with me. A few people have messaged me and told me how certain posts have positively affected them, and that is so great. Cheers to you guys.

Lastly-

So, I looked up the literal definition of “unhinged” with the plan to explain why I picked that word for the blog title. Well… this is the definition….Ā  “mentally unbalanced; deranged.” I guess I should’ve googled it before I launched this thing. I don’t really know what to do with that definition. I meant unhinged in a more funny/casual sense. Deranged wasn’t really what I had in mind. Sooo I’ll just leave you with another favorite quote of mine.

“It is what it is.”

-someone elseĀ 

 

Seriously you guys, thanks for being so supportive. Have an incredible, {wine-filled}Ā  Thanksgiving.

xoxo,

Erika
