Hi there! This is the short "who the heck is this gal talking about life" post, if you want the long one, it's here. www.bemarvelousyou.com/about.html:D
I was secretly miserable. Don’t get me wrong, I had happy moments and was generally fine. I had a home, a steady job, my health and I was loved. But I was living my life without direction, without intent and without passion or purpose.
I felt aimless.
My husband and I had gone through the struggle of not being able to find work after graduating and struggling to pay our bills.
I gained 35lbs, was miserable at work, lost the sense of who I was, who I wanted to be and even what made me happy.
Enough was enough.
I started making decisions based on what made me happy, if it brought me joy, I pursued it. I started choosing my path and doing so based on what I wanted, not on what I thought I should or was supposed to do.
I lost 45lbs (gained 10 back, so part of this blog is dealing with weight, body image/positivity, healthy changes and my progress on losing that 10!:)).
I started acting again, you can check out my stories on that here if you'd like.
I started pursuing business and decided to become an entrepreneur.
I have a powerful desire to share this journey I’ve been on with other women to see if maybe something I’ve learned along the way can help their journey be a little less painful.
I am on my way, choosing my path and building my goals into fruition. I have a long way to go, but dreams, here I come.
I share my story with you in hopes to inspire anyone who feels like they want to make a change. If you want to pursue more from your life, please comment or share and let me know what your goals are!
Ps. Social media is like keeping a photo album or documentary of your life, which I absolutely love, I also love how it is a true, social community to share stories, inspire and encourage. I particularly enjoy Instagram because it is like looking at life through rose-colored glasses. And yes, we need to acknowledge and face the harder realities of life as well, but we also need to flood our mind with positivity, hope, grace, joy, peace and share all the good vibes with each other! <3
