E is for Expectations

If this is your first time here, welcome! Since I’m new to this blogging business, I wanted to lay out a few things so you can know what to expect if you keep coming back.

Here’s what I’ll commit to:

  • I’ll do my best to keep posts short, sweet and succinct. (Warning: The short and succinct part can sometimes challenge me, but I’ll do my best!)
  • I’ll cover things that make my heart beat or mind race. My mind picks up on random life lessons in everyday situations I experience or see, so that’s what I’ll share.
  • I’ll post at a frequency that feels right. I want to share things that matter and not force content out of me and onto you. The goal though – is that at least monthly, there is something new for you to feast your reading eyes on.

Here’s what I’d love for you to commit to:

  • Read through to the end of each post and let your mind wander. Let it connect dots that it wants to and stay curious about how things might apply to your life!
  • Let me know how my stories resonate with you down in the comments. Interaction is fun and gives me an idea of what else you might want to hear about.
  • If you have a resource you think would benefit me or others – share that in the comments too. For example, if I share a story about setting expectations in relationships and you’ve read an awesome book or listened to a killer podcast about it, let us know!

That seems to sum it up…except that I’m doubting myself as I type this. Allow me to share the internal dialogue happening in my mind…

Is it weird to share these expectations with people? These seem like Blogging 101 type things; unspoken rules of the game. Why share them in a post like this?

All good questions. If you’re okay with it though, let me go ahead and answer myself…

No, it’s not weird, Dena. You are new to this, and you get to pick what you post. Yes, these might seem basic, but they lay out clear expectations. Sharing them is what you feel is the right thing to do. Are others doing it? Maybe not, but you can’t compare your choices to other people’s. You have to do you, friend! So, do it. And if that means typing back and forth to yourself, then so be it. Love you.

And I love you too. (Yeah, you, reader friend.) If that seems too weird, let me change that to “I care for you”… a lot! I don’t know you (or maybe I do, Hi, Mom and Dad!), but I believe you have amazing things in store for your life.

I’m honored that you are here checking things out. Stay at it and let’s keep growing!
