Where should I begin? I have brainstormed for months about blog names, themes, and designs. Now, here I am…and I’m not quite sure where to start.
I have always loved art and design, and I was given an art scholarship to Ole Miss where I ended up receiving the equivalent of a minor in Art. Throughout my art classes, I struggled with deadlines, not because I couldn’t finish a project on time, but because I had trouble getting started. The “Type A” person that I am, I always feared my ideas were not good or creative enough. Those first brush strokes on the canvas or marks on the paper were the most difficult.
As I am beginning to write “Mize Life,” I am realizing that I still struggle with this fear of not being good enough or choosing the perfect words. I am reminding myself that once I finally started on a piece of artwork, the ideas began to flow. Once I began my project, I was able to relax a little and enjoy the process.
I ended up deciding that I wanted art to be a hobby or interest of mine rather than a career, so I changed my major and graduated with a degree in Dietetics and Nutrition (which I wanted to do from the beginning but was afraid of all of the chemistry). I could not be happier with my decision to become a Registered Dietitian.
So…back to the blog…I am proud to say that it’s only January, and I am already beginning my New Year’s resolution to finally start the blog that has been in the back of my mind for so long! A huge part of my life is based around food and nutrition, so get ready for posts about cooking, baking, eating, and everything in between. You can also expect to read about my family (puppies definitely included), friends, faith, fitness…in a nutshell: life in general!
2012 was a busy and exciting year (more on this later…), and I am looking forward to discovering what excitement the upcoming years will hold. In 2013, I can’t wait to learn how to blog! I am also excited about sharing my attempt to “live healthfully ever after” with you…
