Why I'm A Blogger

This past year has really got me thinking am I really a blogger?? I see so many other bloggers doing amazing things and I always struggle with keeping to a schedule. But that's it, I always compare myself to everyone else, not just in blogging but in life. Am I actually the person I want to be or am I striving to be someone's expectation??

I'm 26 and I feel that I'm am just letting my life pass by. Well I feel like I'm not up to the standard of the online images. Perfect pictures, perfect hair, body, makeup and blog. All these online influences that make you feel like your life isn't great or worth while. And the thing is I know I'm not alone. We are all influenced by the world around us, we may say that it doesn't affect us but deep down it does. Seeing friends get married or moving out, having children or getting their dream job, we all want what the other has.

But are we enough??


It's time to stop comparing ourselves to what we expect to be. We are all unique and our time on Earth is relatively short and we should stop trying so hard to be the norm. It's hard to stop comparing to others but its so easy to forget all you have accomplished. This is why I'm a Blogger, I'm not perfect and I'm just a beauty blogger, but that's what makes me happy. This is my space to talk about anything and makes tough times more bearable, by putting that energy into something I love.

When I start to feel my life is just passing by, I stop and think about all the things I've done. I have 2 degrees, I'm engaged, I've got 2 makeup artist certificates, I've battle depression and an still standing. Even the small things make me feel proud, like working with brands through my blog, getting to go to events and make so many new friends.

So this new year, I want you to try to do the same, think about all your accomplishments, your uniqueness. You are worth so much more than blending in. Be your own superstar and live your best life and own it.

Stay Gorgeous
