New beginnings

A blog, much like anything else has been one of the most difficult things for me to start and stay dedicated to. The sad part of this challenge is that the only thing stopping my progress is myself. I like to consider myself as one of my biggest critics when in actuality I'm probably my biggest obstacle as well. When I take a moment and look at everything in perspective, it becomes clear to me that my biggest hurdle has been the struggle to seek perfection. Yet when you think of the idea of perfection, its a complete unattainable achievement. What one needs to realize is the search/hunt of perfection is only accomplished when YOU  truly feel satisfied with your body of work. However in order to get to that point we all need a starting ground. A structure which can be built on.

I've now realized that in order to accomplish anything, fear and self doubt should be used as a motivator and not as hindrance. When I look back at my past year, I've been stuck in the same rut! BUT NO MORE TO THAT!  So with that being said, it's time for a new beginning and a new chapter to start in my life. I can honestly admit that I'm lost in this new journey but I know that with time, hardwork and dedication, this really could be a new start for me.

So after evaluating everything, I decided it would be best to have my first actual post be about something that I don't do as often as I should which is cleaning out my closet. There's a certain point in our lives that we are just prone to accumulate a lot of sh!+. Right now I have clothes in my closet that I don't remember ever wearing but for some unknown reason, over the years I continue to convince myself that I'll eventually wear them. At this point I think its time to let go of the past, let go of the excess baggage (of clothes in this sense) and make space for new clothes lol. As I've been going through this process I've found a lot of amazing hidden gems in this cluttered mess. But most importantly its making me more aware of the similarities in my clothes and also of signature pieces that I'm missing to put together a great look for my style. As of now, I'm 2 days into my project but on this very early friday morning, I felt the hunger inside pushing me to share a post about this. It's probably the building block I need to keep me accountable to continue to share and build on this dream I have. So please stay tuned to see how my wardrobe makeover goes 😄 XoXo

  2. I believe in you. Putting yourself out there is the hardest part. Once you get over that hurdle everything else just seems to slowly fall in place.
