Why I started a blog + getting out of my comfort zone

Hi everyone!!

So today has been super crazy for me.. Magnum and Duke (our little mutt puppy) are sick. 😦 Anyone have stomach bug remedies, for a person and dog?? Lol seriously though..

Anyways, today I wanted to talk about why I started a blog.

First, I have been wanting to for a really long time. I’ve always liked fashion, beauty and fitness, as well as writing. So, I decided to put them all together, and here I am! I just want to share, with anyone who will read, things that help me in life, and good deals on clothes, good skincare products (y’all might not know it yet unless you really know me, but I’m obsessed with skin/hair care), and the journey God is taking me on with my faith.

It was really hard for me to start writing because I was worried what people would think, and people making fun of me, or not being successful. I shared how I was feeling with Magnum, and he really encouraged me to not think about those things. I had to really get out of my comfort zone in doing this, and change my self-talk. If you didn’t know, your self-talk is basically what you tell yourself in your head. It’s how you encourage yourself, or bring yourself down. I had to keep encouraging myself in what I was saying to myself in my head, and not bringing myself down. Self-talk is everything that you are thinking in your head, and your inward/outward feelings reflect your self-talk. Also, shoutout to my Mom for always being tough on me about my self talk. ♥♥  

I had, and still have to, keep telling myself that God didn’t call me to fear, or to care what other people think. I am doing something I love and have fun with, so why should I be bothered at all if people don’t like it? A verse in 2 Timothy talks about not having a spirit of fear, but a power of love, and that is what I choose. When I think about it now, I think it is so silly that I even let the thought of what other people would think, even cross my mind, or keep me from something.

So, with all that being said, there’s 2 important things I want everyone to take from this post:

  1. If there is something you want to do, anything, and the only thing holding you back is you thinking about what other people would think, do it anyways. People who judge, are people who are unhappy, or jealous. Do what you want, and what you love and are passionate about. I don’t want this to sound cheesy or anything but I’m just being serious.. Just to it y’all. Don’t worry about what others would think.
  2. Okay.. I know and am sure that there are people who are making fun of what I do or think it’s weird, but the thing is, if that’s you, then you are still here, reading my blog post. I’m doing what I love and what I’m passionate about, and you’re still checking up on what I’m writing. So thanks for reading and giving my page more views. 🙂

Thanks for reading today guys!!
