I wasn’t sure what starting at the beginning would look like, but
I figured the beginning looked something like this. Hello, my name is Cat and this is my blog. I started it in 2015 when I needed an outlet to express my inner feelings about my past. Since then it has become not just a journal, but also a place I share my photography with the world. I only post things I am sincerely proud of and because of that I’ve barely posted anything the past year.
I don’t want to just put anything out into the world because whatever you publish on the internet is out there forever.
When I first thought of beginning over again I was really scared. What did I really want to say to the world?
But now I have come to terms with how much I’ve changed in the past year.
My writing voice has changed, I have a more realistic expectation for life and overall my mind has settled down to show me what I truly want.
I don’t want to give you the easy shit. The “Everything is going to be alright!” posts, or the “10 Ways I Strive to be Happy” because those are bullshit posts.
But what I am hoping to give you is wholesome, REAL content that will make you appreciate life a little bit better. Hopefully, you learn a thing or two, and maybe cross over to the “realistic” side of life.
Because one thing that has completely changed the outlook on my life is that the world does not owe you shit.
If you want it, you have to go get it.
We know this, you’d be lying if you said you truly believed it. We want hope, we want feel good lies, we want explanations and reasonable excuses… but that is just not how the world works.
The world doesn’t owe you those explanations.
And I have finally come to terms about that.
So here is the new beginning. My new journal.
