Why I Started a Blog

Why I Started a Blog (4)IMG_7411

Hello everyone! I’m on the blog to share with you why I decided to create a blog of my own:

What is Lifestyle with Lex?

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Alexis! I’m currently a college student working towards my health and human services degree. My goal is to work with grieving children. I’ve also been interested in psychology and interior design, but ultimately found that my heart is with working within our communities and potentially creating my own grieving center someday. I am passionate about helping others grieve, as I have grieved myself and understand the need for support. ♥︎

I recently got engaged to my handsome fiancé Nick and I’m a dog mom to a sweet boy named Archer. The boys keep me busy most of the time, but I also love to spend time with family and friends, travel, read, shop, eat, exercise, create and write!

I created this blog initially just to write about anything. I have always loved expressing my thoughts through writing and when I started the blog, I was looking to do just that. I was going through a difficult transition in my life and wanted something positive to focus on to keep me feeling inspired. I was searching for happiness when I started this blog and so far it has definitely helped me find what I am truly passionate about in life. It has also allowed me to open up and interact with incredible people.

I chose to focus on ‘lifestyle’ because I want to help others obtain the life that they want to live through inspiration. I have been inspired by so many people on social media. I’ve learned how to cook meals, complete a 30 minute full body workout, and shape my eyebrows all through social media influencers (Some important things to know if you ask me!) I’ve learned many lifestyle tips + tricks along the way that I would love to share with you all. I love all things fashion, beauty, and travel – so lifestyle made sense! 

Blogging hasn’t always been easy or natural for me. My fear and anxiety have held me back several times. I have spent a lot of time worrying about what others may think of me. It has taken me several tries, but I am here! I am still learning and that is ok. Blogging makes me happy because I can express myself! I have realized that it’s important to remain focused on the positive and just do what is best for me. The connections and impact that I can make through blogging mean much more to me than the worry and doubts. This mindset is why I am here today and have more exciting things planned! 💪

I want this blog to be a positive and fun environment filled with inspiration for everyone. The more love + kindness that we can spread through the internet – the better! Creating an online destination for anyone to join and feel inspired is important to me.

  1. I love this! I have the same problem with letting fears get in the way even though I really enjoy blogging. So far I’ve found that its different than other social media platforms and most bloggers are super encouraging and nice! We are all here to express ourselves 🙂
