Hi bb’s – I hope that 2017 is off to a great start for ya! It’s crazy to me how time just keeps flying by, I can barely keep up haha! I promised myself that this year, I’m going to continue to push boundaries in all areas of my life especially the blog. I have this rule that I placed on myself that doesn’t allow me to do the same thing that I did last year unless it’s done on a bigger scale. That being said, this year will be no exception, I really want to do dope shit and challenge myself to continuously grow creatively. I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve that I’m excited and nervous to share with you guys within the upcoming months, so be patient with me.
Also, I wanna just say a huge thank you to you all for continuing to stick by me! Nowadays EVERYONE is an influencer or blogger or whatever you wanna call me, and I hope that you guys know that I appreciate each and every one of you – let’s live out our dreams this year!

It’s been a while since I’ve shared something really personal on my blog, so bare with me on this post. For the last little while, I’ve been struggling with the direction my life has been going in. I’ve had some pretty rough days that only a few of my close friends have witnessed. It’s like every time I take 1 step forward, I’m pushed 5 steps backwards. I’m a gemini so I know that I feel things a lot deeper than most people, I always say that my high’s are the highest and my low’s are the lowest – no lie! I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching, trying to figure out where these negative feelings stem from and how to correct them. I’m convinced that the universe is trying to send me a message that for some reason isn’t clear to me or that I subconsciously don’t want to hear. Either way, my patience is definitely being tested… which is also something I’m trying to work on.
The reason why I’ve decided to share a little bit about what I’ve been going through is solely because I feel like someone else might be going through something similar! I know how difficult it can be to go through things and if I can help someone feel less alone by sharing my personal journey, I’m more than happy to. I feel like every one is put on this earth with a purpose at hand. I’ve always felt that my purpose in some way was to experience things and share it with the world. There’s actually even a quote that I heard when I was a kid that stuck with me “Knowing everything won’t do you any good, unless you use it to put beauty into this world”. Although I’m currently in the middle of figuring out my own situation, I do have a few things that I’d suggest to anyone feeling down to try out.
1. As difficult as it may be you have to try and stay positive. Positivity attracts positivity, so even if it’s small things in your life that are going well, use those to lift yourself out of your funk. 2. Take as much time to yourself as you need. It’s important to acknowledge what you’re feeling and to figure out why it is that you feel that way. 3. Remember, this too shall pass! It’s so important to remember that nothing last forever and in time, everything gets better! It’s probably not the first time you’ve felt this way and probably won’t be the last. It’s merely growing pains and this life lesson will make the next chapter of your life feel that much better!
