Someone innocently asked me the other day “why a blog and why now?” I replied, “why not?” Based off of their reaction it was obvious they were expecting a long, drawn-out answer; expecting me to say I woke up one day having experienced a great epiphany. Sorry, it’s not that exciting. The truth is this was something that I had always wanted to do. This wasn’t a new idea for me. It’s been rattling around in my brain for some time now. Almost a decade to be exact. I finally reached a point in my life where it was time to turn “some time” into now.
Why did it take me so long? Well, let’s see, I was always too busy, it would take to much time, what if the sky fell on my head. Ok, so that last one is a bit ridiculous but isn’t all of them to some degree? When I sat and looked at all the other things, all of the things I “had to get done” that I made time for my head started spinning. It was time to take action.
While Ades Adventures is still in its infancy years, it has my full commitment; for better or worse it is my baby. Getting here wasn’t easy. Roadblocks galore, many of which were self-induced. I cared far too much about what people would think. All silliness now that I am where I am but try going back in time and telling me that. Because of the power behind the written and spoken word, I turned to motivational quotes and books to light a fire under me. I would read one every single day.
I’m giving you ten.
If you feel something, anything, when you read any or all of these then let this be your beginning.
