Positive quotes to end 2017.
" Do not wait; the time will never be 'just right.' Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.”
2017 has been the year of a completely new beginning. I probably mentioned this before in a previous blog post or Instagram, but this first year of blogging has been such an amazing experience! I can’t get over it. It was my first year to get my foot in the door as a blogger, stylist, brand ambassador, model, and writer/journalist. It's been a learning experience that I'm so excited and committed to keep doing what I've found so much passion for!
I remember when I first started my fashion/lifestyle blog, someone told me that getting started in the fashion spectrum is one of the hardest things to get into and grow. And yes it is, I’m still learning and I’m still growing. However, what they thought would discourage me, actually motivated me to work really hard and to keep pushing through.
I share that experience to encourage you to ignore the words of discouragement
and remind yourself that it is possible!
Yes people will criticize you, doubt you, and discourage you, but keep pushing through and remember why you even started the journey! You will have more supporters that you probably didn’t think you’d have by just believing in yourself and showing your drive to follow your dreams.
I am so far from reaching my goals and dreams, but it’s such an amazing feeling to know I am so much closer than I’ve ever been to achieve them. I hope this post has encouraged you to start doing what you love and to make the first step to chase after your dreams.
I’m excited to continue learning, to apply the things I've learned, and to make some changes on the blog! It’s so easy to feel discouraged especially when you feel like you’ve failed, but let that be a reason for you to get back up and keep fighting. Fight for your dreams. I want to end my last post of 2017 with positive and empowering quotes:
"There will be obstacles. There will be doubters. There will be mistakes. But with hard work, there are no limits.” —Michael Phelps
“When you reach an obstacle, turn it into an opportunity. You have the choice. You can overcome and be a winner, or you can allow it to overcome you and be a loser. The choice is yours and yours alone. Refuse to throw in the towel. Go that extra mile that failures refuse to travel. It is far better to be exhausted from success than to be rested from failure.” – Mary Kay Ash.
“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
