The day I decided that I wanted to start this new venture into the blogging world I saw a post from my Aunt Shelley that she had shared, it said “There are people less qualified than you, doing the things you want to do, simply because they decide to believe in themselves. Period.”
This struck a chord with me that kept buzzing in my ear… I have always loved writing, and honestly I have always wanted the entire world to know it and be able to share what I have learned in my short time on this Earth, so I said “What the hell!” and paid $48 to join WordPress for a full year. It’s a pretty cheap hobby for me, and I get to share with whoever wants to listen, maybe I will even inspire someone else to start a blog about their life, read a book, cook a new recipe, or buy that pair of shoes they have been looking at for months (always buy the shoes if you have to go back and look at them more than once!)
Now, I am by no means saying that I am qualified to write a blog, but there are so many people in this day and age that start up blogs or vlogs, or whatever that have so much success now that they don’t even know what to do with it, so why not me? Why not you?! My mom always told me that no one is going to believe in me if I can’t even believe in myself (she always believed in me) the same goes for anyone else! We all have the ability to be successful in our own ways, whether or not we use that ability is completely on us, I am choosing to use my ability and I hope that someone else does too!
I started to learn that success is built when I decided to start selling cars at a Toyota Dealership in my hometown almost two years ago! You would not believe how much doubt in myself I had, but I met so many people that kept saying “You have it in you, you just have to find it” and I did! I sold car after car, just by being myself and doing the best I could for my customer and myself. The car business allowed me to travel to places I would have never went and also allowed me to meet the man of my dreams.
I kept selling cars and settling into dealerships in Texas until Nate (my wonderful boyfriend) moved me to Arkansas and showed me off enough that the dealership that we both now work for put me into an accounting position. I felt like I started over again, I knew absolutely NOTHING. I pushed forward though because I believed in me, and so did Nate. Support was what I needed to go forward with my success now I am training to be one of the dealerships Finance Managers and will be attending a seminar in Iowa in January, I look back often and say..”I did that for me, and only me.”
My wish for this blog is to be able to be someone’s support system and someone’s friend. I only wish for good to come out of me sharing experiences, dog photos, goofy stories, a new book a read, the best wine I ever tried, or the latest pair of shoes I bought, because I vow to you now that I will share them all with you!
Thanks for lending me your ear today,
