Go for it

This is my first blog post. I don’t know how many people will read it, I don’t know if any of you will notice the weird garbage in the background of the photos (now that I’ve said it, probably all of you, but seriously, I didn’t even notice it until I looked at the pictures… oops) and frankly, I’m a bit scared.

  • I’m scared that people will think that my photos are bad.
  • I’m scared that I’ll get comments saying that my outfits suck.
  • I’m scared that I won’t get any comments at all.

Maybe these are all childish fears, or maybe they’re fears that everyone has and nobody writes about, but they are real. For the longest time, I let these negative thoughts consume me, I let them stop me from doing what I really love, and this is not okay. It doesn’t matter if people won’t like my blog. It doesn’t matter if I won’t have hundreds of thousands of followers on Instagram and if I won’t appear on the next cover of Elle. What matters is that, at last, after a year of wishing and hoping that I’ll magically become a fashion blogger without actually blogging about fashion, I’m finally doing it.

I’m scared, but I don’t really care. I’m doing something I’ve dreamed of doing for years, and no fear will stop me from achieving my goals. Sure, I am afraid, but I am also so, so excited for what’s to come, and I am willing to accept and get over my fears for this.

And yes, it took me a year to realize that I won’t get anywhere if I don’t start. Yes, it took me 12 months to gather enough courage to type these words, but I’m happier than ever. I’ve proved to myself that if I want something, I can get it and it is only a matter of motivation and not waiting for things to come your way.

Think about it right now. Is there something you wish for? Is there anything you’re dreaming of? If the answer is yes, forget about the “but”s. Start working towards your goal right now, write down the steps you need to make in order to succeed and go for it! Truly and passionately go for it, and nothing will stop you!

Me? I’m doing the same thing. xx2012-10-22 19.39.55
