The First Hello

I’ve been having some serious trouble starting this blog, especially since a post starting with “Hi, I’m Val, and it’s lovely to meet you all!” doesn’t seem to quite suffice in this situation. But, unfortunately, it’s the only way I really know how to start, so let’s just run with it, shall we?

Hi, I’m Val, and it’s lovely to “e-meet” you all. First and foremost, welcome to my blog! It’s still a work in progress, but I hope you’ll stick around, give it a chance, and watch it blossom into something awesome.

Now, who am I? Well, I’m a lifelong student, a beloved daughter, an annoying little sister, a loyal fraternity brother, a supportive sorority sister, a hungry traveler, a lover of sleep, a dance party animal, a car-jamming fool, an avid reader, a wannabe hiker, a social media addict, an Italian food enthusiast, and a transformational leader. But in addition to all that I am, there are also three aims that I wake up promising to stand by and go to sleep hoping that I’ve accomplished during my day: to be enthusiastic in all that I do, to be proactive despite any obstacles that may appear, and to always be inspired to inspire.

So, what will my blog be about? Definitely not how to turn your room into Zen central with minimalistic décor or what the latest trends are because the universe knows I’m no fashionista. What you will find on my blog are posts about life, love, and everything in between, about travels and new discoveries, and about personal happenings with my thoughts and opinions attached to them. My goal is to share my experience, to do a little inspiring, and to take my readers on a seemingly ordinary journey that ends up being pretty extraordinary at moments.

As Buddha once said, “There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.” So I’m taking the first step by starting, and I’ll take the next by promising you all as my readers to keep going – to keep writing. So what do you say? Care to join me on this adventure society calls life?
