As you all know, starting something new can be so exciting, but it can also scare the hell out of you! Especially when thousands of people are already doing the exact same thing you are trying to do! Let’s be real, that can be intimidating as hell and damn near make you want to give up!
For me, everything I feared came around full circle! I didn’t land the perfect job after college, and that was eating me. I totally lost focus, lost faith, and really gave up on my dream all because I feared the unknown of starting a blog. Discouragement grew rapidly, day job became a drag, and I didn’t get my “YES!” I grew tired of feeling defeated, and I had to make a decision because sitting on my ass wasn’t cutting it.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t let something that’s non-existing control my life. That’s insane! It’s time to boss up, hold myself accountable and stick to the plan! Being uncomfortable is nothing you can prepare for, but the things you experience and encounter during the process will prepare you for where you’re headed. I’m excited, yet nervous, but I’m so ready for this! I know He didn’t bring me this far, just to bring me this far! So guess what, I’m making it happen!
So, welcome to my lifestyle blog – Forever, Yannell! I’ll be sharing all things sassy, heart-felt and exciting in my world of being twenty-fine! I don’t have the keys and I’m far from perfect, but this is my take on daily living. With the help of a good friend, my fear of failing turned into something positive!
Write this down for the times you think you will fail and your mindset will change instantly!
I have so much to share with you! And I can’t wait to see where this goes. I know it won’t be easy, but I’m dedicated and ready! Thank goodness I’m no longer afraid to try!
