I feel like the last time I wrote a blog post was a century ago. In reality, I think it was maybe 8 months, at most. Maybe 10? The point is, as I sit here writing to you today, I am a different person. Or rather the same person, but with a little more or a little less of certain things. A little more self love, a little more confidence. A little less ego and selfishness. A little more skepticism and a lot more compassion, for others and for myself.
When I started Pretty Fn Spooky, I thought I was an expert. While time does beget experience, I was quick to learn that although I had a decade under my belt, I had a lot more to learn. I also had more people to meet and more places to see. I came into my journey as a solo female paranormal investigator thinking there were few of us. I was wrong.
Last summer, I took a step back from projecting myself as the expert and became a student once again. I traveled, I explored, I studied, I cried and I said goodbye to parts of myself that left holes I had to learn how to fill. I am still a student today. But after all that I've accomplished in the last year, I think I have some valuable things to share with all of you now. Maybe I can help you learn. Maybe I can help you not feel so alone. Or maybe I have nothing to offer you. But I am here now and open to let any of those options become reality.
I feel myself defeating the imposter syndrome I dealt with more than two years ago. So here we go. My name is Amanda and I'm a paranormal investigator in Spokane, Washington. I have some unconventional thoughts on conventional paranormal topics but that unconventionality is growing more popular by the day. We are not alone. The paranormal field is changing. It's up to you if you want to come along for this transition.
