I know you guys are probably saying” holy shit she wrote a blog” , but with all excuses aside I’ve seriously been juggling a lot like everyone else in the world. It has come to a point where I had to say enough is enough.
Not just with blogging, because lets face it I am not a full-time blogger. I actually don’t refer to myself as a blogger at all. I’m a girl in fashion who just happens to have a blog . Over the years the use of my blog has changed dramatically for me. So unlike typical blogs that will give you 4 post a week cramming new items down your throats, I’ve decided to make this sort of like an open diary. A little fashion, a little life, with a splash of beauty and some other shit here and there.
For those of you who follow me on IG (which should be all of you btw). You may remember a few days ago I went on to say how my photographer asked me to give him a vibe while shooting. I said to myself I feel like I just left the Fendi show ! Who’s going to tell me I didn’t ?. Of course it was humor with a bit of sarcasm but I began to get mixed responses via IG on my vibe for the day. It was in those moments that I realized how important it is not to allow people to project their negative thinking or lack of belief in themselves onto you. Lets face it everyone knows that I wasn’t at the Fendi show , but who’s to say I won’t ever be? Its bigger than having a goal of being at a fashion show…. although I wouldn’t mind ( Hi Fendi if you’re watching )
On a more serious note, manifesting the things that you want out of life is bigger than just asking the universe to make it happen for you. Manifesting contrary to what most people believe , is not a magic fairy dust or the genie that grants you three wishes. It’s ultimately having faith and working through your shit because things will happen . Aligning yourself with the things that you want and believing that they are attainable. Crippling your self sabotaging habits and putting in the leg work to meet the universe half way. If you are anything like me ( an over thinker) you know how bad possessing this trait can dismantle goals quick!
The first step to getting rid of this habit is to get out of your head. Trust me I just went through a two-week mood that was like ” come on girl”. Over thinking will destroy your mood, and all those good things that you are telling the universe you are ready for will not show up to the pity party.
Now that you’ve identified some of your traits that contribute to your excuse making, look around and say thank you. For what you ask? For everything that you do have. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sat around and put so much energy into what I didn’t have and how to get it, that I never took advantage of the things or resources that were available to me. Moral of the story is be grateful , you’ll start to find that having an attitude of gratitude will leave you in a better space.
Last but not least, be ready to put in the work. Thinking differently isn’t quite enough to get the job done. Daily action must be taken no matter how big or small. Putting yourself where you need to be to receive the information and resources that will help you get closer to whatever goal you are trying to accomplish. Even if it means being uncomfortable, because lets face it everything that we encounter isn’t going to rub our backs and give us facials. Some things are going to lay us flat on our asses but that shouldn’t be enough to derail you off of your mission . So when you see me at the Fendi show don’t mind the crutches , just remember I told you I’d be there.
