Someone once taught me what it was to feel unapologetically me. My sophomore year had started. With a year under my belt, my rising fashion blog was up and running and new opportunities were arising. Thinking back, it was the best year of my life! I had a fire in my eyes for something different…unknown. This was something that I had been afraid of for a long time. To be honest, I hate vulnerability but I’m embracing it now.
I know what you’re all thinking “How could you start a blog without being vulnerable?” You went from this quiet girl who barely talked in class to this writing machine! In all honesty, it is true. Sharing pieces of your world that are directly personal to you is hard. Anyone at any time can say something to tear you apart or something to give you the strength to stand out. For me, this was my statement! I had something to say to the world and I was sure as hell going to do it! All it took was for one person to believe in me. One person gave me the confidence to believe in the fact that the fire in my eyes wasn’t a bad thing…that I shouldn’t be ashamed of what makes me who I am as a person and it was nothing to be afraid of. I just had to believe in the power of my own voice. Taking every chance & dropping every fear allowed me to love & be loved by the people who supported me the most. Sharing my blog with the world was easily the best decision I’ve ever made in my life!
