The New Year seems like as good a time as any to start a blog.

I’ve been toying with the idea for a while – to use as a space to vent, to share my thoughts etc, but the one thing that has been holding me back is the overwhelming feeling of ‘who cares what I have to say?’ 

I think that sentiment has been a running theme for 2019, and perhaps even prior to then. For as long as I can remember I have always been concerned about what other people think and how they view me. After a pretty abrupt change to my life at the end of the year, I’ve decided to use 2020 as a fresh start (as cliche as that sounds). 2020 is my year to literally throw caution to the wind, live life for myself and truly work out what I want out of life. 

Hence why this blog has been born. It’s a space for me and if other people happen to come along for the ride, then that’s great as well. 

The meaning of the word ‘mote’ is ‘a tiny piece of a substance; a speck’ which I think aptly sums up what this blog is all about. It’s my tiny contribution to the digital world.
