Good Morning dolls!
It’s almost Friday and there is a UH football game tonight! (I’m obviously in good spirits!) I am super excited for the game and I’m still on a high from yesterday’s event!
As many of you know I just started my blog about a month ago. I was super nervous to start my blog because I didn’t know how to do it and if I was going to be successful. I got a lot of support from family and friends but I just couldn’t seem to jump. Well now that I finally have I can say that I am super glad I did and I absolutely love writing and expressing myself! I still have lots to learn about the world of blogging and I’m okay with that and totally looking forward to it. I consider myself to be successful already because of the fact that I made my initial jump and haven’t turned back since.
So yesterday I went to my first blogger fashion event. I was really nervous and when the time came to walk out the door I didn’t want to. I kept telling myself you just started, just wait some time and then go. You will definitely have the opportunity again. Why the rush? You have nothing to wear!?!? (Every girls go to) Well if it wasn’t for my amazing support system i.e. family & friends I would have never gone. Of course I was feeling nervous but I think anyone would feel nervous walking into a room of people and you don’t know a single person.
I walked into the event and first off it was absolutely beautiful! Bloggers dressed in their best from head to toe. There were drinks and sweets, a photo booth for fun, and of course the runway. I just couldn’t believe I was here (still nervous btw). I walked into the group of ladies and started watching the fashion show. I saw some amazing clothes and definitely got some outfit inspiration. As the show finished and everyone scattered to find their friends I felt lost. I knew no one and I didn’t know how to talk to them. I recognized some of them from Instagram but I just didn’t know how to approach them. (I’m not normally a shy person but I felt a little out of my element.)
Luckily someone saw me and started talking to me. (I couldn’t believe it!) We immediately hit it off! We talked about blogging, how we started, what we do, who we are, etc. All the nerves I had vanished. I couldn’t believe I was here and I had done this. I was so proud of myself for actually going and not sitting at home watching TV thinking what if. I knew that this decision was one I didn’t regret and I made some new friends out of it! 🙂
If you just started blogging or even started your own business where you have to do something that is uncomfortable for you just push yourself and believe. You started this for a reason and you can do anything that you set your mind too. Don’t let your own fear keep you from achieving something that you can and will be so successful at. Like Dory from Finding Nemo says (or sings) “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming.”
Thank you to Tidbits Houston and Neiman Marcus for hosting such a stunning and fun event! I can say I am definitely ready for my next one!
