In September of 2017, I just launched this blog. I had my whole vision figured out. I want to help others embrace who they truly are and live the lives they always wanted and not feel ashamed of it. I wanted to let others know that they are not alone and I am here for them. I felt like I truly found my purpose. As, I was getting more exposure and finding out new information on how to build my blog, I started to get lost. I kept seeing what others were doing and compared myself to them. I started to doubt my vision. I became blindsided with all of the opportunities out there to work with brands and make money. I wanted the lifestyle of financial freedom and not having to worry so much anymore. I focused so much on these things, I started to lose the reason I started my blog in the first place. Blogging wasn’t so much fun to me anymore. I didn’t get anywhere. I didn’t feel fulfilled, I just felt overwhelmed and confused.
I met with a wonderful lady and she pointed out that at the beginning of us meeting, I had it all figured out and confident and now, I was confused and doubting myself and what I wanted to do. It hit me, I became lost in what society wanted to be vs. what I am passionate about.
I realized I needed clarity. So, from the beginning of December to the New Year of 2018, I took a hiatus from everything, from social media and my blog. I just hung out with family and living in the moment to bring myself back to the reason why I started my blog in the first place. I allowed God to place my purpose on my heart. I was patient and worked on my wellbeing. God spoke to me, he brought me back to the beginning when I started my blog. To help people. Not try new things, not to be famous, not to make a lot of money, none of those things. I created my blog to be an outlet for people when they feel alone or may feel lost in their lives. I am Gods vessel to reach others in the world. I allow God to place what I should write on my heart. My blog is truly authentic. That is my purpose. I finally feel so at peace and not confused because I finally got clarity of my purpose.
A friend of mine always said if God’s purpose for you to do something, he will make a way for it to happen, there will be no confusion.
Sometimes, you just need to take a step back from everything and get the clarity you need to start working towards your own purpose. If you are living today, you have a purpose and I promise you, you will find it.

Have a blessed day, until next time xX
