The idea for this blog was created in my mind several years ago. I grew tired of “internal blogging” and decided to return to the days where I expressed my thoughts, concerns, and opinions on an actual platform. My first blog was launched in the 2008-era and most posts consisted of grainy pictures taken with an iPhone3 with the majority of subjects included my dog (back when I only had one), nieces and nephews (back when I only had three) and a few different beaus (back when I had more than I care to mention).
Fast forward to 2015 when I have two dogs, one husband. a mortgage, a growing private practice, and two (soon to be three) blogs. Yes, there will still be numerous pictures of my dogs on this one but I have more to contribute, I promise. My other blog is for work and while I try to stay authentic in my writing, it isn’t that easy to do. I am a therapist and most of my posts are geared to mental health and wellness—-which is great but not an appropriate platform to talk about how exhausting work can feel, amiright?
The name Aimless Ambitions is the result of trying to find my niche’, focus or purpose for this blog. Truthfully, I don’t want to limit my focus because it would be nearly impossible. I am interested in an assortment of topics, none of which I am an expert on, and my mind changes by the hour. If you could see my browser history you would find fashion bloggers, interior designers, vacation packages and pictures of boxer dogs—usually boxer puppies.
I am constantly rearranging my house and updating the decor while attempting to recreate adorable outfits I see online. I daydream about moving then five minutes later I am creating spreadsheets for any given reason. One could say that I ambitiously pursue my aimless thoughts. Right now we are ambitiously pursuing parenthood through infertility treatment (*that feels aimless at times).
