I started this blog (over a year ago) simply to have a place where I could write. I wrote about 4 entries early on but ended up not doing much more with this space. Numerous people had encouraged me to, “just write, Amarachi!” but I was left feeling crippled due to a number of things.
- I felt like there were already too many blogs and didn’t want mine to be lost in the shuffle.
- I didn’t know if I had anything to say that would actually be worth reading.
- I didn’t feel knowledgeable enough about any one particular subject.
- I felt like the worlds okayest mama and thought that people probably wouldn’t even want to take advice from me!
You know what though? All those excuses were so incredibly prideful and selfish! Now I’m realizing that if what I write is able to encourage just one person, making them feel less alone, less confused, more joyful, and like they have someone who understands them, then I have accomplished what I set out to do!
Welcome to Simply Amarachi. I hope this space makes you feel known, encouraged, brave and ready to take on this incredible journey called ‘Life’. I will try my best to be completely transparent with you – not holding anything back and showing my life exactly the way it is. I’m so excited for you to follow along!
