Hitting the Road in 2022

Hitting the Road in 2022

Jan 06, 2022

There always seems to be this pressure when it comes to New Year's. The pressure to have big plans with bigger impacts. Sort of the ultimate vibe to get your sh*t together. But for the most part, it's really just another day, another passing of time.

I started The Road of A Small Town Girl a few years ago with the hopes of just keeping a blog going. A way to write out what was on my mind. But up to this point, I've had the largest obstacle.

It's not that I didn't have a story to tell. It's the fact that I didn't know I was allowed to tell it. That I hadn't lived long enough or had enough life experience. Or that if I finally got to tell my truth, that there would be consequences that would harm my safety. But in reality, I'm the safest I've ever been. I've got enough "life experiences" to last a lifetime. And it's about time I finally told my story.

Hi. If you're reading this, I'm Jess. I'm the small town girl behind the blog. And I want to thank you for being a part of this. Following me on this journey isn't going to be easy, because I decided that it's finally time to get my life together. To not be stuck anymore.

In April of 2021, I was finally diagnosed with Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and up to this point it has fully been in control of my life. But a large factor in my condition has finally been removed, and I can move forward. In truth, I'm in the rawest state I have ever been. I'm having to fully focus on rebuilding my identity outside of my trauma outside of the box of a person the trauma put me in.

It's finally time to sew up the holes in my drum. (IYKYK)

So for the year 2022, I plan to finally take the blog as a priority. As well, I now have a Youtube channel that I started to go with the blog. I'm not going to be able to handle a post weekly on those two at the moment so they will be coming out every other week (Blog on Tuesday, Youtube on Friday). But each Youtube video will be released early on here for y'all. But I do plan on posting every week to help make sure y'all are updated as well as know any money you provide would be going to good use.

I want this to be a stable part of my life. Sure the views on the content will fluctuate but me telling my story shouldn't.

I hope that you see this as worth being along for the ride. Thank you for coming. Thank you for staying. And I'll see you soon with the first post.

Jess
