“Why I started blogging..” – Guest Post by Nichole

Today, I am really excited to share with you a fabulous guest post written by Nichole. Here, Nichole is giving us an insight into her life, and explaining the reasons she started blogging. I hope you enjoy reading this post as much as I did, and remember to head over to Nichole’s blog here!


Hi all! My name is Nichole and I blog over at Upbeat Uplifts. I am so very excited to have this opportunity to guest blog for Jenny!

I started blogging back in February and it has quickly become a part of who I am. I love to look for the best that there is in each and every day. Life is crazy, that is no secret, and it becomes easy to feel down and be unmotivated. A lot of what happens to cause this is actually out of our control, but the thing is there is something that is in our control which can completely change life around…what is that? Well, that would be our outlook! We have complete control on how we look at the things that happen to us. I recently graduated from college (can I get a whoop whoop!) and also just completed my rookie season as a member of the dance for the NBA team in my area, The Pistons. Now that you know a little bit more about me and my background I want to share with you all why I started blogging.

When I look around me, it appears that everyone is in a relationship or getting married.  Except me.  Don’t get me wrong.  I’m not ‘woe is me’ or ‘desperately seeking someone’.  But I do get discouraged sometimes.

I’m 38 years old, soon to be 39.  Which means, 40 is knocking on my door.  And I live with my two adult brothers.  Yeah, I know.  I’ve had mtamekay share of relationships, even a few proposals (had to wisely decline them).  But never married.  I think about it more now because I’m getting older.  Will I ever get married?  If so, when?  If not, will the cats come to make me a cat lady?  Only God knows.
