On June 25, 2012 Whimsically Yours was born!!!
It came about as a way for me to express myself, instead of constantly trying to express myself to others who weren’t listening or didn’t care. So on that evening, I sat on my bed, created this blog and wrote my first post “Why I Write”. Little did I know that by writing that post I had created what I now consider to be one of my greatest accomplishments.
Now why would a blog be someone’s greatest accomplishment? Well, because I believe simply creating a space where you feel free to express yourself is one of the most powerful things a person can do. We don’t have control over everything in our lives, but we do have the right to express ourselves even if it’s hard at times. The Guardians (Green Lantern) harnessed willpower for a reason; if you aren’t succeeding at something one way, try another.
Originally the blog was called “The Whimsical Life of an Aquarius” but it was quite a mouthful and didn’t sound right to me. So I came up with the name Whimsically Yours.
Whimsically Yours is a blog for people who much like myself have felt that their words have held little or no value, who have spent their lives trying to please others, and who have tried over and over to find themselves instead of just creating themselves.
So for all of you out there who match that description, and even for those of you who do not, know that Whimsically Yours is just as much your home as it is mine.
It is time for us to stop waiting for the world to validate us and go ahead and validate ourselves.
I promise to remain, always and forever:
