Here We Go...

So I officially have a blog!

Me, a blog!

Didn't think in a million years I would become a "blogger", or that I would be as excited as I am now in writing my very first post. Then again, my interests and views on life have changed in the past year that starting a blog only seemed fitting.

This leads me to explaining the name of my blog. Metanoia Living.

What exactly does Metanoia mean?

Metanoia is the opposite of paranoia. Instead of being stuck in the state of mind that is filled with fear and anxiety, you're open to growth, transformation and the changing of your thoughts.

This is the journey I'm on now.

Over the past year, I've experienced more growth and awakening than in all of my years combined. For the first time in my life, I am completely happy. Don't get me wrong, I live an incredible life filled with family and friends that genuinely love and support me, but to fully be happy with yourself, is another story.

Making positive changes in my life has truly been a blessing. Self discovery and personal growth was not something I was seeking, but it's true what they say, "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change".

And that's exactly what 2013 was for me. A year of change.

A friend of mine once told me, "It's never too late to improve yourself." And he is right. Every day is a new opportunity to look better. To feel better. To live better.

The main reason I wanted to start this blog was to share with you the changes I've made (and continue to make) in my life to become the best version of myself- sprinkled in with some of my passions and interests.

Hopefully this blog will inspire you to go out and conquer whatever it is you want to achieve or improve on. I'm all about spreading positivity and promoting self-empowerment.

You're the creator of your own life, why not make it a good one!
