The Glam Comeback + What to Do with OpportunitiesMonday, January 23, 2017
I'm not sure how I'll start this post but one thing I'm certain of is that I'm happy to be back here. To be honest, I didn't have a smooth start this year because I need to get things done and everything's going faster than I anticipated. I could almost see a ball of mess coming at me.
I absolutely had no idea what I was getting myself into. Okay, I do have a little idea but... I wasn't ready to leave some things behind, yet. I really hate choosing one thing over something because I fear that I would make the wrong decision. I thought, maybe it's way better if you have no choice at all rather than having too many options. But I took all the opportunities both in my hands in the hopes that I could manage them over time. And just like before, I was wrong.
Since day one of 2017, I knew that I'm quite lost. I'm uninspired. Unmotivated. Bored. Unfocused. And that, I need help, hence my blog absence. You see, I was and still am distracted by what I think others are thinking. But then I realized, I won't get anything out of it so why bother?
It's hard to leave the place you've been comfortable for almost a year for something that is completely new, challenging and terrifying. But the thing about it is that, you know it's worth risking for because that is what you want in the first place and when you start feeling that itch of doing your own thing, it’s hard to shake it.
The truth about opportunities is that it'll make you crazy inside. It will mess up your mind and create a whole lot of what-ifs.
You don't need to take every opportunity that comes along your way.Sure it feels great to have all of them laid in front of you but most of them aren't good for you in the long run. The key to be successful is to focus on what you want, stick to it and work hard for it.
Now, I'm here. Shocked and still terrified but bolder, stronger and braver than ever. The "work" scares me for I think it's too early for me to be here. And I question myself everyday if I can really do this. But this has always been me—doing something I was a little not ready to do.
Maybe this is how I grow.
And to cap off this post, I just want to express how happy I am to collaborate with Sheinside again. I'd have to say that this dress has everything I want. The style is very feminine and the color is just what I'm always looking for! Seriously, I'm madly in-love with pastel pink. Imagine how excited I was to wear this masterpiece. Perfect for a glam comeback! I think they have an on going sale on their site now! Better to check it out. :)
