Hello Wild Ones💖💖💖💖 (I wrote my heart was filled so much love for you guys❣❣)
I hope you are well and that great things are happening for you. My prayer is that you know how awesome you are. I am currently really proud of how awesome I am and the dope things I continue to do.
Today’s Commercial Break
Recently I have really been struggling with blogging. I have written a couple of posts about it but the feeling of discomfort and imposter syndrome didn’t seem to want to go away. I also felt very inadequate as a writer. My biggest fear is to mislead anyone or take away someone’s light. People kept saying just ignore the bad feedback but to be honest I really couldn’t. I couldn’t go on without being sure that I wasn’t being a negative influence. At first, it was just thinking about it a lot then I got to obsessing over every post. It has been a struggle getting the zeal to write posts because it just felt like a time for me to be anxious all over again. Affirmations and trust in myself kept me here and will continue to keep me doing what I love. Sometimes you fall and it’s a struggle to stand but the important thing to stand up anyway.
When I started this blog, I was going through a really tough time. Now that I look back, I see that I was trying to escape and understand my pain. I was in a really toxic relationship and I remember the first post I did was ‘What is love?’. I was at a point in my life where I was suffering so much emotionally because of love and I really just didn’t understand why love could hurt so much. This blog served as therapy for me, I wanted to be like Jane from the Bold Type, she uses her life experiences to create great stories and impact others; hence the tagline: Telling Authentic Stories for Social Change.
Has this desire to change lives using authentic stories changed? No!! It has just expanded. My definition of this desire was mostly on relationships and mental health but as my relationship finally ended and I went to therapy, I have shed my identity as a girlfriend and broken. This has changed my view a little bit. This blog will bring you content on
- Relationships; self, romantic, filial, friendships, and professional
- Career growth; mentorship, entrepreneurship, job search, and internships
- Social issues; feminism, mental health, etc
My Goal is to inspire and challenge you to be the best version of yourself. I hope you give the opportunity to do that💖💖.
The Road Map
What I hope to achieve is big. I will read and research deeply to bring you the best content there is. My authenticity and story will always be the spice for every post. I want to change lives using stories. This is why I have my comment section open for people to comment, kubool for people to send in messages anonymously, and email for those who would like to contact me. I also created an accountability group on WhatsApp with some of my followers that allows like-minded people to engage with each other and so far I feel like I have a small family💖💖💖. I can’t wait to see where these people go in the next year that I am engaging with them. I look forward to seeing the great things that are going to come from this blog💖💖💖. Here’s to a brighter future.
I did a video guys…. It is not the best but I had to start somewhere. I look forward to hearing your feedback on what I can improve and what apps I can use for editing💖💖💖💖.
My love language is words of affirmation; Give me your feedback on the comment section.🌞🌞
With Loooooove and Sunshine 💖🌞💖🌞, Jackie
