Blogging (or writing without an assigned deadline) has never been easy for me. I hem and haw over the structure and topics I should cover, make excuses and procrastinate, and get lost in the editing and SEO of it all. I can be a little bit of a perfectionist, and sometimes it prevents me from starting. I’m scared to do something wrong! My impostor syndrome and the high standards I’ve set for myself can hold me back.
But, the truth is that I have something to say and information to share, and this space is perfect. I love helping people feel better, whether thats through my private cheffing, nutritional consulting, or my personal friendships and relationships. If I can help at least one person feel better through THIS platform, it will be worth it.
So, I’m re-committing to making the time to write, to publicly journal, to provide product and restaurant reviews, and get slightly nerdy with information on nutrition and health conditions, specifically those that I’m personally affected by (Celiac disease, the MTHFR mutation, fibromyalgia, hormone issues, etc).
Most of all, I’m going to get vulnerable about what its like to be someone who is chronically ill, running a business, and living in New York City. Sometimes that will mean sharing recipes, and sometimes that will be using this platform to vent about being sick. Most of all, I’m just gonna do the thing.
So, if you’ve stumbled across this post, I’d love to hear from you in the comments. What’s something scary you’ve done thats ultimately been rewarding?
