Word of the Week – Beginning

Each Friday, I would like to share a word of the week with you. Something that summarises what I’ve been up to, how I’ve felt and how life is generally going. I’d love if you’d share one in the comments. It can be so therapeutic to reflect on what’s been happening, good or bad!

Word of the Week – Beginning

This week I’ve chosen the word beginning.

Perhaps my choice is a little bit predictable, but oh so relevant! This blog, Sunshine and Rain, is brand new and I am at the very beginning of what I hope to be a long and exciting journey. I’ve wanted to write for such a long time and have dabbled in the odd attempt but this time I’m taking it seriously. I have self hosted, I have a domain name and quite frankly I feel like a proper grown up just knowing what both of those things are!

I still have so much to learn but I’m enjoying it so much so far. There’s just something about sitting down with a blank page and a keyboard that feels good for the soul. I just hope I can do a good job!

Not one to do things by halves, I’ve started a second blog at the very same time! My Debt Diary is a personal finance blog focusing on a more niche subject, specifically my journey to becoming debt free. This is something that I have wanted to open up about for a while, but those of you who have debt (or have dealt with it in the past) will know, it’s a tough subject.

What I do recognise however is that the healthiest thing you can do is talk about it. I have been a silent follower of the #thedebtfreecommunity on Instagram for a while now. The support shared amongst everyone is incredible. I hope that my sharing my own journey can help someone else to take on their own and give them encouragement in knowing that they’re not along.


So there it is, my word of the week and a summary of the past seven days.

Do share your own in the comments!

  2. Being self-hosted and having your own domain is definitely a good start on the blogging front – it was quite a while before I managed either of those things! Good luck with your journey with both your blogs and I shall look forward to reading more of your posts. #WotW
