WHY?

- originally posted on June 14, 2011

Exactly ten days ago, while I was on Facebook I started to think that I am constantly on this website to look at other people’s pictures and to know their business. I basically have become an FB rat! Then, I began to think about my family in the Philippines whom I haven’t seen in seven years, which ironically see them all the time on FB! It has been a long time  since I last had a great conversation with my siblings and I truly miss that! I surely thought, “hmm…maybe instead of wasting my time on FB, I can utilize this tool by sending just a quick note to my sisters and brother to see how they have been – besides, I have to get to know them. It’s been a while.”

So, the a-ha moment went just like that!

In a snap, I sent my first email. The email that I sent was my current thought at that time, which I was dying to share to the people who are dear to me. Of course, I shared to my husband and he graciously answered them all. But I wanted more people to read it or hear it. So, I hit the mail button and started typing all my siblings name on the recipients line: Rachel, Yedelilah, Sammy and Honey. Then, after sending that – I had another thing to say – then, all of these inspiring stories, lessons I’ve learned, read, heard started to come back to me. The feeling I had that moment was surreal. Maybe even weird. I felt natural with the idea of writing and inspiring people.

The challenge for me was to make a 30-day commitmment of emailing them without the expectation of getting a reply back (although, there has been healthy discussions).

Ten days later – I am true to my commitmment but this time, I want to include any individuals who would like to get to know themselves and be successful! Thus, the birth of this site.

Prior to that light bulb coming on, I have always wanted to share what I have read, experienced and realized to a broader audience. I wanted to inspire and make other people think about who they are and what they can be. I wanted to truly experience what life really means despite the many pursuits that we are trying to chase. I wanted to really share my purpose in life to you – and to the world.

I want YOU all to aspire; be motivated and succeed while at the same time, doing myself a favor – of releasing these ideas towards YOU!

And, please would you tell me – if you have felt your aspirations, your motivations and your success in your face?

I will be waiting for your stories.

    I appreciate that you are living consciously and inspiring others to do the same! Thank you for visiting Radical Bliss.

  3. Indeed, WHY NOT! This is indeed a fine forum for creating community around the idea that we can all learn from and be inspired by each other–for that’s exactly what joining the Blogiverse has done for me, too. I’ll gladly get on this bandwagon!
