Well here it is, at long last, my blog! There have been days when I’ve contemplated whether or not I should start this blog but with support from some great friends I met in Wisconsin, here it is!
Whenever I’ve started something new in my life, I have always wondered what other people will think but for the past year, something in me has changed. Something has clicked and I am living life for me, not others. This blog is a true testament to that feeling and that way of life. Who knows how many people will sit down, read my thoughts, share my story or even be inspired by what they read. It is my goal to simply make a difference in the life of those around me, to share my personal stories of the roller coaster ride I’ve called life and to inspire and motivate others to continue to live life to the fullest with no regrets. I hope to share stories from the struggles and challenges I’ve faced head-on and overcome, the successes in my life and how you can find success and happiness too, along with simple stories of friendship, traveling the open road and the relationship with life itself and how powerful and beautiful the world truly is all around us.
I’m not saying that my life is perfect because it’s far from that and I’m not saying that I have all the answers because I still have more questions but what I am saying is that we all have a story to tell. We all have a passion deep within us and we all have the drive, somewhere deep inside, to make our dreams come true. So while my grammar and writing isn’t to the caliber of The New York Times, I’m here making my dreams come true each and every day and I hope you can realize, before it’s too late, that you have the power to do the same.
So you might ask yourself, just as I have in the past few weeks/months, why in the world is Eileen starting a blog? The answer is simple. I have a story to tell and it’s a simple story – I’m a farm girl who is proud of her roots, never forgets where she came from and is enjoying life one day at a time by living it to the fullest potential. So while my writing isn’t perfect, my story is because it’s what I make of it every single day of my life.
