Hello Blog world! I’m here! I’m here!
I’m FINALLY here. I’ll admit, in the past I’ve had feelings of inadequacy and doubted my skill set… and then there was good ol’ Pinterest. We all know that Pinterest can be a God send when in need for ideas, but it is NOT the place you want to be if you’re going to compare yourself to others.
There comes a point when one has to say, enough already! Who ARE these ‘others’, anyway? Everyone starts somewhere. What if not being ‘the best’ is precisely what makes me tangible and relatable. Then I experienced my AHA! moment. Maybe… just maybe… we need someone other than a professional. What if we can go at it together? We will inspire each other. Motivate each other. Give each other suggestions. Share our before and afters… Our own little coalition!
After a year or so of contemplating and giving myself countless reasons as to why I couldn’t and shouldn’t create a blog (or any type of social media) outside of my personal life… Here.I.Am! Here we are!
We need to not be so hard on ourselves. or each other for that matter. Never doubt your talents or hold yourself back. Why do we do this?!? I say ‘we’ as if I am speaking for the masses, but in reality it just makes me feel better. You know – strength in numbers. So as long as we believe in and love ourselves, that’s truly all that matters. May we all know in our heart of hearts that we are uniquely and preciously made. I am the best ME out there and that’s what I’m going to be… Simply Rachel! ♥
