I’m in my mid-twenties and I’m always described as “an old soul”.
I’ve been through my share of things in life. And writing has always been there to help.
I realized there are so many things we go through and we all have our own way of coping. I write. Sometimes, you hope to come across someone who’s been through what you’re going through and that they shared words of encouragement. That’s also why I started my blog.
Discussing your problems with people doesn’t always guarantee you will hear what you want/need to hear – especially from someone you love or family. The words of a stranger often ring home because it’s like someone out there has been through what I’m going through and they understand. I’m not alone. I’m not going crazy. Hearing the same thing from a loved one isn’t fresh or caring anymore it becomes annoying after a while.
I’m trying to make the most out of my life. I’ve had enough lessons on knowing how short it can be.
Everything in moderation.
Love and be loved.
Build each other up – especially woman to woman. Learn from each other.
I’ve been feeling really intimidated when it comes to how I want to further my fashion blog because of what I see other established bloggers/youtubers go through with negativity. I find I’m giving myself pep talks everyday that I can do it and I can get as far as I want to go and I am the only person that can stop my progress.
Isn’t that the same thing with life? We can only get as far as we want ourselves to go. If we feed into the negativity, listen to what others tell us we can’t do, then we don’t get anywhere.
I want to go somewhere. I want to build something on my own. I love that my husband encourages me and is proud of me. That counts more than you know and he knows how much it means to me.
So here is my encouragement to you:
Nothing happens overnight (it could but let’s be realistic). Work hard for what you want and know you get what you put in. You may hear “no” a lot but keep saying yes in your head and your heart if you know it is for you.
Writing these words hold me to do the same thing for myself. To never give up and also to try to be an inspiration for someone else. I love knowing that I’ve helped someone one way or another, directly or indirectly.
I hope this helps.
