I don’t know how to start this off, but I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I started my blog. March 12th, 2019, was the very first day that I introduced myself to the world. At this point, I took a leap of faith by starting a website that I created myself, investing in a Nikon camera, and making shit happen. Last year, I was in a very transitional phase of my life. A few months back, I just got divorced, I started my MBA program, and overall I was just searching for the answer, what is my purpose? I had many ups and downs, but I never gave up!
I wanted to be transparent with you and show you the real side of me and also to understand I go through the same things as you. There were times where I felt like I had no one who could understand me, so I know how it felt. So I created my blog to let you know, yes, I struggle when it comes to dating, yes I’ve had depressing times, yes I’ve battled with self-esteem, and yes I still don’t have my life figured out! That’s the beauty in life, who wants a perfect life? I needed these experiences to make me stronger and to appreciate life more.
In a year, I have been my most creative self. I started a podcast (The Transparent Diaries) and been on a few, I’ve been my own stylist and make-up artist, I’m now a playlist guru out here in these streets, and the moral of the story is live your fucking life. I literally started with nothing a website that I created here on WordPress, a gang of family and friends who are my photographers, a phone that records my podcast, and also allows me to create my bomb ass playlists. You got to do what you go to do!
Don’t start later because you don’t have pictures by the bomb-ass photographer in your city or the most gorgeous website, start today! Just my passion and drive have presented me with so many opportunities!
Thank you for rocking with the kid for a year, and please, whatever your passion is, don’t start tomorrow, start today. I love you all, and thanks for supporting me. And remember there’s always beauty in the struggle.
HAPPY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO ME!!!
