Last Friday I shared a ridicolous photo of myself from elementary school and I had SO many of my friends ask if that was really me! Of course it was! When I was younger I was so terrified of rejection and so self-conscious. I thought everyone was judging me and it broke my heart every time I wasn’t included. I had my feelings hurt and then hurt again in high school and somewhere along the lines I started to guard my heart. I was sad and I was lonely, but I thought it was better than having my feelings hurt. I was so wrong, but the whole experience left my heart a little bit bigger and for that I am thankful.
It’s ironic that I started a business that constantly requires me to put myself out there in order to succeed. I am so thankful that my passion overrides my fears and self doubts.I hope that everyone out their struggling with their own insecurites realizes that you can do anything you set your mind to. Don’t be the one standing in the way of your dreams.
