A little bit of my story and why I want to write a Blog.
Who am I?
My name is Hunter Potts and I grew up in a small town called Graceville which is nestled among the rolling pastures and green fields of northwest Florida. Growing up, I spent a lot of time with my siblings and cousins playing outdoors and from an early age I found myself liking a lot science fiction, fantasy, and adventure stories which fueled my active imagination and provided a foundation for my outlook on life. In high school I became enthralled by running and the identity of being only an athlete was something that I clung to. Later in college as I began my path of self discovery I began to see all of what life had to offer and shifted my focus to living a more balanced life. With that being said, I tend to view things optimistically and feel that I have it within myself to do anything that I set my mind to.
Why write a Blog?
For a long time now I have wanted to challenge myself by producing written content for other people to enjoy with the ultimate goal of helping others to live a more meaningful life. More simply though I enjoy the process of trying to contextualize my thoughts, feelings, and experiences into words. I have a wide range of interests such as history, literature, theology, philosophy, politics, science, and, social studies that I find deeply entertaining and I wish to convey information on these topics in long form to share my perspective. Not because I believe that I have all the answers but because I believe that by writing about these subjects, and having to organize them into a legible form, I can learn from myself and become a better more informed person.
One of the biggest projects I have been working on is a memoir chronicling the most important moments of my life during my first quarter of life; or 25 years. Each person is a culmination of all of the things that they have ever thought, felt, or experienced and it has been a fun task to pinpoint all of the major moments and events in my life that made me who I am today.
Over the course of my writing I will be sure to share some stories from my life that will help you, the reader, get a better understanding of who I am. And of course, If you would like to reach me you can visit my About Me page and click on the link to my Facebook or LinkedIn homepages. Thanks so much, and I look forward to writing more in the future!
