Both spring & summer have been seasons of color for me in the wardrobe department. Even I still can’t believe I used to be so anti anything bright…& I had the nerve to call myself @tobebright. UHM HELLO – Where have I been until now?
I’ll tell you: I was in a place where I was trying too hard to fit in when I should’ve been following my journey to stand out. Cliché, I know. But I definitely feel like I’ve found myself in a better (more colorful) place, both mentally and physically, when I started taking off the shades and smiling for the camera.
Blogging has always been a platform of personal growth for me. Putting myself out there (& here) and allowing vulnerability to come in has been a major contributor to my self-development over the last 5 years. When I compare myself now to a year ago, I can visually see the changes I’ve mentally made in the last 365 days. These are the moments where I’m so thankful to have this timeline to reflect and respect my journey to being the best version of myself that I can present.
Ok, sappiness over! 😀
