I’m Destiny and yes, I’m the mastermind behind this blog.
I’m a work-in-progress, to say the least. Capable of changing with the wind most times – unpredictable and hard to keep up with, but I like it that way. Free spirit at best, but people often take my constant need to explore and adventure the wrong way. Afraid of commitment? Well, yeah! Kind of.
I’m also an impatient introvert with an extroverted alter-ego named Whitney. I enjoy creating the mysteries of life. I’m a dreamer, an overthinker and I typically love to be in control of everything.
I love hard, I’m an emotional wreck a lot of times, and yes, I’m also a drama queen.
Oh yeah, I’m a 25-year-old college educated woman, as well as a brand new mom.
Why did I create this blog?
Sometimes it’s deeper than the simplicity of having someone to talk to when all you want is for someone to listen.
Writing, for me, has always been a getaway of some sort. I’ve always felt like seeing my words on paper or in text was “healing” in a way.
It’s my favorite form of self-expression. When I can’t verbally translate my thoughts, I can always write them and that’s liberating for me.
Blogging became a true stress reliever once I realized I didn’t always physically have someone to talk to. It all started with Tumblr. Knowing random people from all over the world were reading my thoughts and going through similar, if not identical situations, felt really amazing.
So, my goal here is to have people read what I’ve written and experienced and truly feel what I’ve said. I have so much respect and appreciation for writers and creators who are one thousand percent raw and transparent when it comes to their craft(s).
Because…not everyone wants to read about [fake] sunshines and rainbows when they’re dealing with a series of scattered thunderstorms. People want to read things they can relate to – real, raw, everyday life struggles.
I want my content to forever be that real, raw, everyday life struggle type stuff.
The fear of how my life and I will be perceived has definitely held me back when it comes to blogging, but I’m rebuking ALL that!
At the end of the day, I’m just like you! It feels good to know people have been through what I’ve been through, we’re going through it together, OR that they will go through it and have my experiences to use as a map or guide of some sort.
I don’t have it all together by any means, but I’m still out here making it happen!
I’m falling in love with the process of manifesting my thoughts, perfecting and protecting my energy, learning how to properly love and enjoy myself, growing my faith, and expanding my horizons both mentally and spiritually.
We’re all finding and chasing something in life, so let’s do it together!
I hope you guys are ready for this crazy, beautiful, unpredictable rollercoaster of life I’ve titled, “Chasing My 20s.”
