Words, Why Do They Matter Anyways?

You might notice that My Mellow Chaos has a new look. What do they always say? When a girl changes her hair, she's about to change her life?

Well, when a girl changes her blog layout, she's about to change the game. 

I feel like you must have whiplash from the number of times I've said "I'm back" then I go radio silent for a few months.

I'm not going to lie, it takes a lot of effort to maintain this. Emotionally and physically. No, I'm not complaining. I have recently been curious as to why I have fallen off the MMC bandwagon, yet again.

Time. Is that not an excuse for everything?

More often than I had expected, I've had individuals reach out. Some I know quite well, others simply friends of friends, and even a handful of people that have merely discovered My Mellow Chaos through a shared post or an Internet search. They tell me how much they appreciate my writing. Ask me when I plan to start again. Question how my book is going.

With my title: "Words, Why Do They Matter Anyways?" They matter infinitely. For someone to take time out of their day to ask when I'm going to write again, it was as if they threw lighter fluid into my dulling fire.

It was today that I went to check my blog's email account (mymellowchaos@gmail.com -- if you haven't yet heard) for the first time since I created it months ago. I was in shock. It wasn't empty like I had expected. I had emails from companies and individuals complimenting my writing, my style, my lifestyle. Asking for collaboration sessions. Requesting that I work as an ambassador for their company brand. This was the match that was dropped into my fire.

Once again, words matter. No matter how small. You can change someone's path. You can remind them of who they are and where they want to go. You might even shock someone's dreams back into reality.

For that, I thank you all. Passions may dull but they will never go away. You may forget why you started but never keep starting. If you don't keep starting, you may never find the end. 

It took a few months but I've never been more ready and more excited. I'm taking major strides towards tackling my FIRST novel head on. I have quite a few people in my corner--those who have agreed to proofread and even organizations who have agreed to answer questions for my knowledge. I'm really looking forward to informing myself on such an important topic and writing a kickass novel for all to enjoy.

If anything, My Mellow Chaos will always serve as a reminder. A reminder that I was able to put myself out there, having enough confidence to map off my little corner of the Internet. A reminder that I had so many opportunities in life to travel far, travel wide, and travel often. If anything, it will serve as a reminder of the happiest times in my life.

I'm looking forward to what's next and I sure hope that you're looking forward to it, too.
