Be a Voice to be Heard

Yes, I’ve joined the club in starting my own blog. I’m going to jump right into the “why.”

For those who know me well enough, I am usually very quiet and don’t have much to say- at least in person. I’m not going to be one to start-up a conversation with somebody next to me or voice my opinion loudly, or at all. Now for those who knew me when I was younger, this was not the case.

During elementary/middle school conferences, the teachers would always tell my parents how great of a student I was, but I had a “voice that needed to be heard.” Basically I was the annoying little red-headed girl who would interrupt the teacher or other students to yell something that may or may not have been about the subject being talked about. (To all of my teachers who know what I’m talking about- I am so,  so sorry.)

Like I said, I am definitely NOT that way anymore, like actually complete opposite. Maybe it’s because of all of the times I got in trouble, I don’t know. I’ve realized, though, that I wish I had that voice again. I wish that I was able to have a good talk with anybody around me without making it awkward. I wish that I could be proud and have a voice for what I believe in. And I think this blog is going to help me achieve that goal.

I’ve found that I’m so much better at writing down what I want to say. This way, I’m able to think about and put the right words together, instead of just yelling or saying something that I maybe shouldn’t have said.

So to wrap all of this up, I started this blog for that little girl who had a loud, clear voice. To share whats on my heart. To maybe be an inspiration for someone.

Here is MY voice, stay tuned if you want to hear it. 🙂

  1. I love this post and I love what you stand for. I am in a very similar situation as you. I was always the most talkative kid in class, always getting in trouble for speaking too much! And I feel as though I’ve lost my voice too. I just started my blog yesterday and already I feel enlightened. 🙂
