Top 3 Reasons Why We Started A Blog
As I sit in this Starbucks, typing out what will be our first blog post, I am reminded of something. Starting anything new, no matter if it is a new relationship, job, workout routine, or a travel and lifestyle review blog is HARD! So many looming questions and fear starts to creep in your head, right? All the what if’s start playing on repeat like that one Taylor Swift song that gets stuck in our head and just won’t go away! What if they don’t like me? What will my friends and family think? What if I can’t meet my own expectations? What if I fail? I can tell you that these scary thoughts continue to cross our minds while we create our online presence and launch this blog. Think about pouring out your heart and soul into something you believe in so much, that idea that will change people’s lives and transform your own in the process, and then having that thing be met with rejection and apathy. Scary huh? So, is all the self-doubt, sleepless nights and sweat and tears worth it to have the opportunity to change your life and make a positive impact on the world? Our answer to this question was a resounding YES!!! We have our love, we have our lives and we have our opinions and this blog is a place to collaborate and share those opinions with our fellow San Diegans, as well as the global community! Here is a list of the Top 3 Reasons We Started a Blog. For more on us and to read about our story, check out our About Us page.
1. Share our Passion for Travel & Food
It was over a cold beer and singing along to our favorite songs on the juke box that Katie and I discovered our mutual love and passion for travel and food. For us, these two things really go hand in hand with one another. We live for discovering unique new destinations and taking our taste buds on a culinary journey, especially in our hometown of San Diego! Katie and I have been fortunate enough to travel together since we started dating back in 2010, and our wanderlust has only become stronger with time. We believe that these culinary delights and unique travel experiences need to be shared as a way to inspire others. As we have been changed by those couples and families who travel and blog about their adventures, we also want to educate and inspire others like us.
2. Self-Help – Mind, Body, & Soul
Everyone needs a little help from their friends, right? We have all had those days where absolutely nothing is going right. Whether it be a tough day at home or the office, family drama or just feeling like you want to scream and do whatever you can to escape the daily grind? Well you are reading the right blog post and you have met a couple of kindred spirits, because we deal with all these things on the daily! Traveling and working on our blog has become a sort of therapy for us. There are so many of us that suffer in silence with physical and emotional pain, that Katie and I wanted to create a platform to help debunk some of the myths about mental illness/emotional and mental challenges, and share resources and healthy ways to cope with whatever curve balls life throws your way. We want to make it clear that these are just our opinions and are here to educate, entertain and inspire, and are in no way meant to treat or diagnose any physical or mental disorders. If you need additional support, we recommend talking with a licensed professional.
3. Live our Best Life Now!
Let me explain what we mean by this because this can mean different things to different people. If you are happy in your work, family life, spiritual life etc.. that is amazing and we challenge you to continue to find new ways to live your true happiness. It is my guess that many people like us, whether we like to admit it to ourselves or not, continue to search for what makes us happy and what it is that will sustain happiness long term. Wherever you are in your life journey with your work, family life, health and wellness etc… we want this blog to be a safe place that provides inspiration and resources for you to live your best life now! This blog has been a passion project for Katie and I, and is a direct result of the effort we are putting in to living our best life now, and encouraging others to do the same. We look forward to connecting and learning from our community of subscribers and creating content that becomes not only a source of positive change in our own lives, but helps awaken others to a world of endless possibilities!
