Blogging Changes Lives
Faitth Brooks and I chatted about how blogging changes lives as I charged my phone at the airport. Since I’m still writing Because of Blogging, I asked if I could interview her. She agreed.
Faitth Brooks Program Director at Legacy Collective
“My name is Faitth, and yes I spell my name with two t’s, so it’s not a typo. I am relishing in the glory days of my early twenties and loving every moment.”
Faitth Brooks embraces life.
Her lively eyes and bright smile caught my attention. She explains why she embraces life on her blog.
” If you are feeling stuck in life, remember to create your own adventure! I made every day pleasures fun because I was convinced that I wanted to live a life of whimsy and wonder. … Choose to enjoy life for yourself! “
I would say that this sums up her philosophy of life.
Being positive is one thing, but someone who is always positive ruins their credibility because life does not always deal positive experiences. Faitth embraces life and shares realistically about how she deals with bad times.
“The past two years were some of the hardest years for me but I blossomed so much because of the hardship I faced. If you need help, ask for it. If you need a therapist, get one. If you need solid community, find it. There’s no reason for you to endure a hard season alone. You need people, get your tribe to rally around you.”
Faitth’s Advice to New Bloggers
Like so many of us, blogging impacts her life in a positive way. She told me that blogging gives her courage to say things she might not say otherwise.
“It’s freeing. It’s sharing your truth out there in the world and having it resonate with others.”
Her advice to new bloggers is to write “even if you feel that no one is reading it because each person is unique and has something to share.”
I hope you enjoyed meeting Faitth. She blogs at Lyrics&Letters. Check out her uplifting blog there.
If this was helpful, feel free to share it. It’s the best compliment you can give a blogger.
