It’s been a solid 4 years.
That feeling of being stuck and figuring out who you truly are after the initial stages of “growing up” is something I know many can relate to. The pressure social media puts on one is unmeasurable. It makes you feel as if your creative mind and your skills can’t be put out to the world unless it’s “aesthetically pleasing”. I blamed college for steering away from blogging and my passion. Then, two years went by… No blog posts and I can’t help, but feel stagnant.
My blog was where I felt fulfilled. I had this mindset that I couldn’t come back to blogging because my website wasn’t fancy enough or no one reads blogs anymore. I have so much to share with the world and what I learned is that I am my worst critic. I am the go-to person for beauty related advice for my friends & family. I find myself giving advice to strangers while randomly shopping for beauty products and I don’t even work at the store! I work at a beauty store for a few days during the month to still have the connection to the beauty world and share my knowledge with others. This is my passion.
I could rant about life after college and the experience of drifting from my passion, but I want to keep it short. Take as much time as you need to think of what your calling is and how you can break free from your own self. It’s not an easy process, but I am slowly getting there and feel a jolt of energy just thinking about it.
I am older now and much more knowledgeable. My blog will not only be beauty-related, but I will occasionally speak on random topics that resonate with me. I don’t want to give away too much, so I will end it by saying thank you for supporting me and reading Curly Curls.
