I’m incredible passionate about a lot of things. I’m super passionate about inspiring people through story telling be it theatre, music, or right now my blog. When I’m not working passionately on something I feel out of sorts, lacking in motivation and honestly leaning towards depression. I think it’s important to be real with you all and not just say, I love fashion and you should love yourself (even though I love fashion and everyone should love themselves first and foremost haha). I know there is so much more to self love and confidence, then just saying it or reading about it online. Finding what your passionate about is a doorway to self confidence. It may seem disconnected but for me when I feel the most confident, when I feel the most focused and I feel the most myself is when I’m working on something I’m passionate about. Due to some ongoing issues with my health, I’ve been unable to pursue my greatest passion for the last year. I’ve pursued other dreams of mine, hence The B Word, in the mean time. For a long time I felt like I let what was happening to me, take over, negative thoughts becoming more and more regular. “What if I can never sing again?”, I thought. Typing that now, I still tear up. I refuse to allow this bump to derail me and for these thoughts to become my reality. In these times I force myself to go outside more. I force myself to dress in bright colors. I force myself to keep going because this too shall pass, I will be able to sing again and I will, above all, always live passionately.
Keep going, keep searching and keep living a life that’s yours. If you don’t have something that wakes you up in the morning, how can we find it? You deserve to be excited everyday! Successful people always say find what you’re passionate about and you’ll never work a day in your life ++
