I can’t believe my blog is already a year old!
Last year, I launched my blog in the evening of February 28th, and I was excited and terrified at the same time! I talk about my fears here.
After a year of blogging, I can tell you that the things I experienced definitely weren’t the things I expected, but that has been the most interesting part! I discovered so many facets of my personality, good and bad, and it has led me to the most important lesson I have ever learned in my life:
To love myself.
Maybe it sounds cliché and obvious, but the last year has been quite challenging to me. Launching a blog reveals a lot about yourself, and you can’t hide behind your routine! Blogging is about sharing your thoughts, your passions and what drives you in life. So, if you don’t know exactly who you are, well, it’s challenging.
I spent some time soul searching, trying to figure out what I really want in my life and the kind of messages I want to send to others. Then, I realized that I didn’t know exactly who I was. I realized that I never allowed myself to dream. Probably because I thought I wasn’t allowed to… Probably because I wasn’t loving myself enough.
Ouch! It’s not easy to admit that to yourself! But at the same time, it was liberating! I changed my perception of myself. I decided that I deserve a very beautiful life.
And just like that, I began a big transformation. And it’s funny because when I look at the first blog posts, I get the impression that i’m a completely different woman today!
Thank you so much for following me and accompany me through this great adventure. You have given me the opportunity to share my passions and to grow through this project, and that means a lot to me.
Here’s to you, my friends!
