Arianna's Random Thoughts

Hi everyone! I'm Arianna, Founder of http://ariannasrandomthoughts.com.

Years ago when I was unclear about my path, a good friend of mine gave a heartfelt piece of advice: By sharing your personal journey and thoughts, you will be giving others permission to do the same. Hence why the name of my blog is Arianna's Random Thoughts. (Please let me know about the name of the blog - if it makes sense to you) 

I created this platform a couple years ago (around the same time I got the advice) during my Master's degree  as a personal outlet to share "random" thoughts and personal experiences about broad topics I was learning about in my Master's degree in Psychology.

I believe :: stories are universal. They are a way for lessons to be passed along to others. From my travels around the world, I have learned many life lessons through meeting new people and hearing their stories.

People confide in me and tell me their stories and seek guidance. Throughout my travels and conversations, I have discovered that many others also struggle in their understanding of, and more importantly, appreciation of self-worth. One of the ways I could encourage them on their journey was to let them know they weren’t alone.

For years I hid my talent, slouched my tall body, and softened my voice, because I didn’t want to stand out and be judged. I was too afraid to share my random thoughts with the world – however, on vacation in Hawaii I finally decided to risk, stood tall, and started my blog.  It was initially called Everybody Beautiful and the posts were generally about body-image and self-esteem. However, after I started posting more, it was clear from my writing that my voice was aching to speak.  Hence, the switch to Arianna's "Random" Thoughts.

The background of my blog is a picture of a beach to serve as reminder to keep the light inside my heart and spread it around. That day I faced my fears, embraced vulnerability and share my random thoughts with the world – I became my best.

I believe :: creativity takes courage. I know this from experience as starting a blog and sharing my personal story was new to me. Also, entrepreneurship runs in my family. I come from a long line of individuals that took risks in their businesses and lives and manifested their dreams. I know trying something new isn't easy but it's so important to persevere. Through my personal, academic, professional, and athletic experiences I have learned that no matter what life throws at you, one must keep the joy in their heart and press on. I keep developing my inner strength by writing down my experience one random thought or experience at a time :) 

Incorporating this understanding into my life has made a world of difference. My goal is to pass this knowledge along to you and help you discover it for yourself! You will find your way by developing the courage to stand tall and speak from the heart.

Excited to connect with you all and learn more about building my brand! This is where I am currently.  I'm trying to figure out how my target audience and how to share my story on a bigger scale.  Would love your input.
