Being Adriane is a collection of stories about growth.
Why am I writing this blog?
When I was growing up, my life was structured. Everything was planned from the time I woke up, to the time I went to bed. Everything was on a set schedule. Go to school, go to practice, come home, do homework, go to bed. Beyond a daily routine, my entire life had a plan. I was going to finish high school, graduate from college and find a job. Once I checked all of those things off of my list, I started to feel lost. I had completed my tasks and I didn’t know where to go from there. I was on my own, no plan to follow. Was I supposed to just work until I die? Do I go back to school? Do I really need to spend money on another degree? What am I supposed to be doing? Is this it?
Work wasn’t enough.
Hanging out with my friends wasn’t enough.
Falling in love wasn’t enough.
Making more money wasn’t enough.
I started to find myself searching for my purpose beyond work, school and relationships. That is where the idea for Being Adriane began to blossom, and I didn’t even realize it yet. Over the last three years, I have been on a journey that has allowed me to grow and scratch the surface of my purpose. I’m not where I want to be, but I finally have a destination in mind. This destination can only be reached through my spiritual and professional growth, while enhancing my mental and physical health. These are the topics on which I’ll base this blog.
My prayer for this blog is that other people will want to share their stories as well. My goal is to build a community of people who are looking for something more for their lives and together, we’ll be able to find fulfillment in all that we do.
