Hello, my name is Celeste Galizia and I’m the creator and writer of Where Comes The Sun.
The idea for this blog came from a simple question: “What would I tell my two-years-ago self?”
I’m not usually a person that likes sharing much about my personal life, but this blog and whoever reads it is special to my heart. This blog is like a baby to me, and I feel proud watching it grow day after day.
I don’t want to bore the hell out of anybody telling the story of my life, but If you don’t mind I’d like to introduce myself a little bit.
“Why two-years-ago?” you might ask. Well, because that’s when I touched my lowest point in life and felt really miserable. My father had just passed from a rare form of leukemia and I realized I couldn’t keep doing what I was doing because I was simply unhappy with it.
With this blog, my goal is to inspire other people to realize that the sun, hope, healing process (call it what you want!) comes in your life whenever you decide. Happiness comes from the within. When you finally take responsibility for your reality, what other people think about it is a blur.
I needed a change, and I did it myself. I started writing, reading and accumulating tons of content in my head. I also started waking up early every day (read more about how I did here) and doing things that were on my ‘to-do before I die’ list for too long.
“Done is better than perfect” became my motto and I stopped making excuses for myself. In one year and a half I kicked off my own freelance writing business, I created this blog, I started driving again (after a panic attack I had stopped for 2 years) I got my dream puppy and I even moved to Dublin, the first city and capital I’ve ever lived in.
Even though self-care felt like torture at first (as a workaholic I couldn’t stop thinking it was a huge waste of time) I realized my mental health is a serious matter, and that it’s a work in progress. When written down, everything sounds easier than it actually was, of course. I had to cope with my downfalls, too, but that’s just life.
This blog was born from the urgency of documenting my journey and growth, in the hope of inspiring someone else to do the same.
Focusing on my personal growth changed my life forever – I cannot stress this enough – so I felt like this blog would be a nice way to give back and share with as many people as possible what I learned during the process.
Happy Living and My Personal Best Wishes for YOUR Journey To Success,
