The Magic of Beginnings

The Magic of Beginnings

There is something about starting something new that always makes me happy.  I’m always putting way too much on my plate.  I’m consistently not finishing things – being a mixture of a procrastinator and a perfectionist with a little ADD thrown in there keeps me constantly moving on to the next big thing.  But for now, I’m going to revel in this new beginning…

The birth of this idea in my mind to actually making it happen was not a very long passage in time – like I said, I move fast.  It also didn’t hurt that I already run another blog focused solely around outdoors & adventure travel – A Southern Gypsy.  Problem is, I found myself more and more wanting to write about other things besides travel.  Travel is still one of the most important things in my life, but not the only important thing.  I want to write about life, my puppies, fitness, food, creating wonderful things, collecting hippos, my hatred for mustard and so on.  So, here I am.

I struggled with coming up with a name – I knew from experience, you want it to be perfect.  But, I’m so, let’s face it, all over the place and I needed something that described my quirky, eccentric self.

Thus, The Dauntless Dreamer.

I’m a constant dreamer – almost annoyingly so.  According to others.

And, I’m dauntless (I swear this isn’t a Divergent reference, although I do love that series).  I’m fearless, except when it comes to cockroaches, or spiders, or clowns.  Okay, I’m close to fearless.

And, I’m always ready for anything, or in omnia paratus.

I hope you’ll follow along – I promise to always try to entertain and to never stay on subject.

You can find me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

    Love this! You’ll do great with your new blog. I tend to write about whatever is on my heart or mind, as well, so I understand finding it hard to nail down a blog theme. I say, blog about anything and everything. Your readers certainly aren’t only interested in one thing!
