Why blog?

Not too long ago I saw post on social with the picture of the bread aisle stating “When you feel discouraged about your business idea because there’s so many people around you doing the same thing. Go to the grocery store and look down the bread aisle. Same idea 15+ companies selling the same thing! We all can eat boo. Don’t doubt your ability” – the original author is unknown. The picture above was a screenshot from Reddit.com

In a world where becoming a social media influencer or blogger seems over saturated, this statement resonates with me. Just because it has been done before does not mean my post won’t be significant.

Also, I was sooooo inspired by other young nurses sharing their stories whether it was on social media, blogging or youtube. A lot of my research stemmed from their ability to be open and share their knowledge online. Anytime I would try to talk myself out of this huge transition there was an entire online community of nurses spreading positivity and encouragement. So S/O to everyone who has the courage to share their stories with people they’ve never even met before.

Insert the cliché “If I could just impact one person with my work.” But seriously. My end game is not to gain popularity or followers, but to be the nurse who shares her experiences in the hopes it will encourage someone else to dream bigger and follow that dream through. Despite what you have been through and the people who doubt you, you really can do whatever you want. And you should, unapologetically.
