Life is a beautiful journey you have to go back and rediscover time and time again just to really appreciate it. I found myself at times during these past few months being so invested in the perfection of having a lifestyle that I could be proud of. When I say that, I mean that I began to think very superficially about things I felt I needed and things I feel like I should accomplish. I wanted everyone to acknowledge that I was putting in work, and with that comes the need for constant likes and compliments. I got lost in the idea that if I helped and supported others, that eventually the same due respect would be given.
But life serves you up lessons in unique ways.
I questioned a lot of things, the most consistent being whether or not I was good enough for much of the very things that I wanted to accomplish.
I’m so grateful for the reassurance that many of my greatest friends and family have surrounded me with.
I’ve had to ask myself countless times again and again how much my dreams are worth, all while reminding myself of my worth and that it means something.
This series, #BecauseLifeIs is going to be very transparent and very real.
Everything that you could think of — from parts of my life I rarely discuss to love and relationships to career journeys.
Stick around for it all, and thanks for the support, always.
