Linda, Listen - It's just getting good.

Hey y'all! Welcome back to my blog. It's gotten a face lift since the last time I've posted. I originally started One Brave Girl as a creative outlet to share my life. At the time, I had just moved to Knoxville, lived in my own apartment by myself for the first time ever, and was experiencing life in a pandemic. Truth be told - I was bored out of my mind and needed a way to express myself.

Since then, I started an online clothing boutique in 2020, thinking that would be the thing that would entertain me. At least I would be learning something new, as my job at the time wasn't very exciting. And for awhile, I really loved it. It was my passion project and something I was excited to work on every day.

At the beginning of 2022, I accepted a new job in private equity, and decided to close down my boutique. My job was much more demanding and I was moving into a smaller place that didn't allow me to manage my inventory very well. I was sad to close it, but knew it was the right thing for the time being.

Since accepting this role, I've learned a lot and have been extremely challenged, but I am missing some fulfillment that I just can't seem to get from my day job. So here I am - reviving One Brave Girl and giving her a face lift with some new inspiration: Linda, Listen.

The phrase "Listen Linda" has turned into a saying people use when they want to emphasize that you are listening to what they are saying, regardless of whether the person they are talking to is named Linda or not. This comes from a viral video a few years ago of a little boy telling his mom, Linda, to listen to him in an argument to ensure she is hearing what he is saying.

I cannot tell you how many times I've introduced myself to someone new in the past few years and the first thing they say is "Listen Linda".

As I was thinking about writing again, this little tease about my name inspired me to rebrand my blog and start writing about and sharing the things in life that I truly love, my experiences, and the things that make me, me. So here we are - Linda, Listen is a personal blog about my true passions in life: books, travel experiences, health and fitness, faith, and whatever else might inspire me to write.

Read if you want, listen if you will - regardless, I will be sharing my passions here if you're interested in coming along for the ride.

Linda, Listen – It's just getting good.
