Today is day twenty-one of Blogust! To see all of the Blogust posts click here.
This topic is near to my heart due to the fact I reinvented myself this past year. I believe that this is “Back to School” related because we all want to leave a memorable first impression! In August of 2012 I decided that my life needed a change. I wasn’t happy. I started to take interest in fashion and makeup and my life slowly started to reconstruct. I became more confident with how I looked. I started to do things outside of my comfort zone (talk to people I usually wouldn’t, wear “bold” outfits to school, etc). While simultaneously typing this and reflecting on this past year I am so proud of how far I came. I wouldn’t change a thing. Now you’re probably wondering how you can reinvent yourself…
Find Your “Sparkle”
You need to sit down, without distractions, and discover yourself. Rethink everything about your life. Physically make a list of all the things you like. Think hard about your passions and dreams. How can you achieve them? Will it benefit you? Once you target your sparkle (I like to say “sparkle” instead of passion) you can now begin the process of transforming yourself.
Jump in, Head first!
This may seem scary, but you need to completely immerse yourself into the lifestyle you desire! There is no “half-assing” it! If you want it bad enough you will do anything to achieve it. Surround yourself with people who support your aspirations and have similar goals.
You WILL get there. It doesn’t happen overnight. I can assure you 100% that it is worth it. The feeling of “Damn, I feel great” is something people lust over! Don’t you want to be proud of yourself and be ultimately happy? Who wouldn’t? Take the road less traveled.
I challenge YOU to take this journey! Tweet me (@Prep_CGWC) your “Sparkle” and how you will achieve it! On September 1st I will pick three of my favorites and give each person a shout-out and advice! I would love to go on this journey and support y’all every step of the way. Good Luck!
