My name is Kiley and I am a 17 year old who has been trying to chase the biggest dream of her life in the past two years!! I am 110% a caffeine addict, I LOVE my coffee hot and I love it cold. I am a beginner photographer, which is actually how my first blog came to be about. I LOVE Jesus with all of my heart and love chasing after his love and his word. Its not often you’ll see me with my hard copy bible open and journaling, but I can be caught a lot with my phone in may face with the Bible open and my brain is just a spinning in question, answers, love, and facing my fears. I am a small town girl but have ambitions to travel like crazy!! If I was able to travel 24/7, 365 days a year with out spending my entire life savings, there is no doubt in my mind that’s what I would be doing!! Let me just jump into why I even started a second blog and my whole purpose and reasoning behind it! First off I started out two years ago on Blogger with a photography blog, I loved it and loved sharing my work with the internet. The thing is I was in 9th grade and even though there are those girls who are no more than 5 years old and have about half a million followers, I was and still am not one of those girls. I was not a very good writer and still am not today, writing is by far my worst part of English class and probably will always be. I just ramble on way to much to be a great writer and I am sure you can tell just by reading this far. Haha. Then finally I learned the ways of blogging a bit more, I started researching the different styles to blogging and I would even read some blogs here and there. I self taught myself basically and I created my own style to blogging and LOVED IT ALL!! I am not going to lie I did think I could get some income from having my blog but I just could not get enough views and didn’t have the resources at the time for potential income. However I have always dreamt of getting to that point one day, it is my life long goal to not have the normal 9-5 job in an office that’s looked upon as the “typical” job. I have a hard time thinking that if I have a 9-5 job that’s two-three hours less I get to spend with my one day kids and that’s daycare I am going to have to pay. I don’t want that for my kids, my mom was able to stay home with my brother and I up until I was 8 years old and by then we had moved out of state so my mom got a job at a daycare and we were living with family so I never had to go to daycare and neither did my brother. My mom only worked for maybe 3-4 years tops and is now a stay at home mom and she keeps three little kids through out the week. My dad was always self employed for about 98% of my childhood and even still is to this day, he is a builder by trade and can make a beautiful master piece with two hands like I have never seen before. I don’t know where my inspiration of having a non typical job came from, probably from seeing my parents loving what they do for a living. My dad will even tell you “I have done it for 25+ years and yes I constantly am in pain in my joints and from my back, but there isn’t a day where I regret becoming a self employed builder.” I stinking admire that like no ones business!! There for I found my hidden talent for photography and I want/ed to inspire others through my work! I wanted people to see that everyone has a hidden talent of some kind, something and you can inspire others with your talent! My passion still to this day is photography but I think my overall passion is helping, serving, and inspiring others through something so simple for me to do! I have thought about YouTube for so long now but my parents just are uneasy about me being a teenage girl putting my life out on the internet for the world to see, and I completely feel the same way. So right now YouTube is not an option for me but who knows maybe I will be able to start a channel and branch off from my blogs. What I am basically trying to say is that I have created this blog site for my thoughts, my dreams to be lived in, and for me to inspire you and to lift you up when your down!! That’s all this site will be for and I am not saying that those three topics are all you will see because in no way shape or form will it be. I am a strong believer in God and in faith, and I will be incorporating that in just about every post some how! I think its extremely important to have faith if your trying to inspire others on a platform like this and I know not everyone is going to like it, not everyone will be supportive, and not everyone will understand it. My response to that is I don’t care what others think because it is what I live my life through and by, it is how I wake up every morning and how I know no matter the sin I commit God still loves me and will still be there and he will forgive me as long as I ask for it!! I am not doing this for followers, likes and what ever else, I am doing it for ME and for me to fulfill my passion and to hopefully inspire ONE person! So with that being said I hope that you will want to stick around and will support me and that you will want to read my posts.
Thank you to every single one of you who have stuck around from the very beginning and still to this day have stuck around! You guys are stinking awesome and I love you!!
