Just when you least expect it magic happens!!!

Last night was the beginning of "Hi RubyDW"

2013 is officially 4 days in and while I thought I'd give myself time to add yet another project to my growing list this one was not going to let me take my time.

In life things happen for a reason, at least that's what I believe.

I went from being in a state of confusion to a path that lead me to this journey.

I've always been one to help and when it came to following my dreams I would get scared and fear failure. I worry too much what others think of me-- so the hubs has pointed out. I refuse to live in that state any longer. I've let opportunities pass me by because of fear.

Long before my presence online was noticeable,  I wanted to be a counselor. I was set up in a comfortable life and then it happened it all changed!

Everything I had planned out got flipped upside down and I was married with kids, unemployed and losing my mind but through it all one thing remained consistent that kept me sane, the blog!

GUB was my outlet it became my passion and soon enough I was able to call it my career. It was the path to my journey. I didn't know what I was doing but it kept me going.

I became focused and with the support of my husband and family I reached goals I didn't set out to accomplish. I am so happy I did though.

I felt blessed but still there was a void. I still longed to help and be of service. I didn't know how, but I wanted to inspire others. I wanted others to feel that spark of hope the way I was inspired by so many in my online community.

Then I rallied some of my great blog friends in a support group. That group helped blossom the want to give more.

In the process of wanting a place non-mom related where I could share who I was  I came up with the idea of a positive lifestyle blog. I decided to start this here blog!

Soon enough I came across a vlog that started inspiring me. It created such positive thoughts (more on that later) It actually pushed me to design my site a little faster. I suddenly had this adrenaline that made path to the journey much more clear.

Days later I was invited to participate in a twitter party #DREAMUP13
This is when my little fire burned harder than any other day and everything I mentioned hit me!

I was overwhelmed with joy and I wrote to a friend "I am having an AHA moment" she wrote back "Put it in the UNIVERSE"

I quickly  reached out to the person in charge of the twitter party to thank them and that's when the magic just happened!!!

I look forward to sharing more on this wonderful journey I have started and in the process share more about myself as an individual. I hope to inspire and motivate you to go on this journey to your dream destination whatever it may be.

In this journey I want three things to be constant positivity, happiness and success.
