Nice to meet ya!

Hi! My name is Becca and I'll be posting on Sailors blog occasionally (frequency undecided... let's see how the first few go). I am 27 soon to be 28 years old and I currently live in Long Beach, CA. I have recently started a new job and have been dealing with the whirlwind that that brings. I have a partner of 5 years that I absolutely adore <3 I enjoy reading and am always ready to share a book rec (blog post to come???). I enjoy trying different arts and crafts and have recently been into collaging and jewelry making. I LOVE karaoke and will go any chance I get! My go-to song is "You & I" by Lady Gaga.

For as long as I can remember I have loved to write. But writing made me feel silly. I would think to myself, "Who cares? Why are you writing this? No one will ever read anything you write so what's the point?". I felt like writing was something I did for other people, for validation, to produce something (the topic of productivity and validation is a whole OTHER can of worms that we can crack into at another time). I secretly dreamed of writing a book but felt trapped under the thought of "Why?". As I have gotten older I have put a lot of work into prioritizing myself and the things I like. More recently I have tried very hard to be intentional with the things I choose to do. My thought process has shifted from "Why am I doing this for others?", to, "Why am I doing this for ME?". As you can see, my brain has been filled with a slew of questions lately.

All that to say, I am very excited to write. Since Sailor invited me to guest post on her blog I haven't stopped thinking of all the fun things I can write about. I see inspiration in everything I do and I find myself thinking about things more poetically and open-minded. "How is ____ making me feel? What am I taking away from ____? What is the beauty in ___?". It has been refreshing and feeds directly into my journey of intentionality.

I don't count this as my first post so... first post to come! See ya soon.
