Climbing the stairs.

Hi there friends. Been thinking a lot lately about what we all probably think about. Getting a head, moving up, climbing the stairs to success. You know,that stuff. But when does that obsession become more troublesome than it is worth? Easily, very easily. We are a generation of want now, instant gratification. Need now, have now. Where does work go into that? Well, it should be in the front. You want that nice car? Better work bitch. You want recognition in your field? Better Work Bitch. P.S. I found out that is an actual song. God bless YouTube.

hm pants, white blouse, justfabbagWe all want to succeed, even me. For the longest time GFD, was a place for me just to come and disappear into when I was dealing with PPD and stress. IT was my creative outlet. And when I started blogging in 2009 I had not the foggiest idea of how a blog worked or what it was. Even if I researched I did it wrong, wrong for me. But flash forward to 2013. When I really started to take it seriously. I was wanting to move up, climb that blogger staircase. And I have been, let me tell you the stairs they do not stop! But that is perfect! No ceiling. Just sky. I do accept the sponsorships that I like, and am moving up the stairs to more opportunities. And I want you all to keep climbing the stairs with me, only I will do the hard part and you all can take the escalators on this journey. Because that is what this is isn’t it?It is a journey. I love blogging and creating content for you all, it is therapeutic for me and fun! My blog is MY BRAND, and I love being able to say that now. Before I didn’t have the courage, because of the epic eyerolls. But you know what do what you love, you do you. You can do it!

Now, lets talk about this here outfit right?

Justfab bag HM shirt and pants Express sunnies and ALDO shoes JORD WATCHI went to my closet this morning found myself going hmmm. Grabbing ol faithful(this blouse) and my comfy stretch leggings. Yeah, you read that right, these are leggings. They are not leather. It is too damn hot in FL to wear leathers. And not going to see my eyes in this post, my allergies took care of that.

    I like the analogy of climbing stairs and blogging. It’s so true, those stairs dont end. But it’s so fantastic!

    • Stephanie September 20, 2016 at 11:56 AM

      Thank you Yuka!!! I got the inspiration for the post from having pep talks with friends. And it is basically the advice I gave. I just put it in a blogging sense. Glad you liked it!~!!!!!!
