Oh hey world. Welcome to SandrasDiary.com. At the time I am writing this, I don’t even have an audience. It’s just me, myself and I sitting in my teeny studio apartment in Brooklyn, NY taking over my little corner of the world wide web writing my first entry in my journal. Still feels a bit weird that I am here, but I am here now and quite honestly need to be – my therapist also agreed so that’s that.
Allow me to re-introduce myself. I’m Sandra – an ambitious girl who has always had dreams larger than life, but somehow along the way of trying to create the life I saw in my dreams, I lost myself. As I write this at the top of a new decade, I am determined to create and live the life I know I deserve going forward.
So how did I get here? Well it would take all day to run through it, but I will keep it short and sweet since we’re just getting to know one another. I was trying to be perfect in all ways you could imagine. The perfect career, the perfect daughter, the perfect friend, the perfect wife. In my quest for perfection and success I got lost. I mean like how the hell did I get here type lost and someone please get ya girl a GPS stat!
So SandrasDiary.com is my new space and place where I will document the process along my journey of self-REdiscovery. This is where I’ll be keeping up with myself, my commitments, my progress and hold myself accountable as I embark on creating and living the life I have always dreamed of. I know my message may resonate with other women navigating the highs and lows that come with trying to live a wholehearted, authentic and purposeful life so I felt compelled to share and bring you along with me. This is where I will share all that I am doing and learning along my journey – how I am feeding my mind, body, and soul, how I am renewing and recharging and how am I investing in myself. So in a way this is also a space for you to learn from my mistakes and to know you have an internet bestie in the trenches with you figuring this shit out together. But most importantly this is where I will be learning how to fully accept myself exactly as I am because I now understand that I am enough. Welcome to SandrasDiary.com and my story.
