I have decided to jump on the blogging bandwagon. Why? Well there are several reasons.
1. I have recently started a weight loss journey. I am more determined than ever to become fit and healthy this time. I figured blogging my struggles, progress, victories, etc. would be a good way to hold me accountable as well as maybe help someone out there who might be struggling. I have not become brave enough to post my weight and progress pics quite yet but it is one of my short term goals. I promise!
2. I want to empower other women. We live in a society where we have become comfortable with tearing each other down. Moment of truth, I am guilty of this myself. Recently I realized why, it was out of pure jealousy of another woman's success, how beautiful she was, etc. I WILL NOT allow myself to do that anymore.
3. With that said, I started this blog because I get really worried about what other people think of me. I figured this might become a good tool to learn to let go and realize that not everyone likes/loves me and that is OK.
4. Last year I began a what I call a faith journey and decided to convert to Catholicism (I will post about my faith journey in the future). This blog is a great way for me to help spread God's love and maybe help bring people to Him. It will also help me continue to keep God a constant in my life.
I named this blog "Assignment Amanda" because it is about changing myself. I want to become the best version of myself. I want to truly love who I am inside and out and at the end of the day I want there to be no doubt in my mind that I am going to Heaven. I have a 4 year-old little girl and I want to be a positive role model for her.
I am 28 now and by the time I am 30 I want to fully love the woman I am. This is the story of becoming her.
Until next time,
