Today I decided to share with you something that’s not just a fashion article but one that is more personal about me.
Some years ago, there was a time when the lack of belief in myself was a big factor in my life. I was not pursuing anything that I wanted to, because I didn’t think I could. Sometimes it can be hard to believe in yourself, especially if you feel like you have something to offer but don’t know how to present it and are reluctant to do it because you’re afraid what people will tell you.
But as the time goes by I have learned that it’s completely fine to try, even if I fail, and to put myself out there and be imperfect, because everyone is worthy and capable to do something they believe in.
I try to set goals for myself and meet those goals. Once I make a goal, I work hard to achieve it. My education and previous work history were very different, but inside my dreams have always been drawing me to fashion.
Staying positive and learning from my failures made me think in the right direction. So, if you did something wrong, embrace it, because you’ll have an easier time to know what is right from wrong.
Today’s post is a challenge for me, too – before I never believed enough in myself and my figure to make a photoshoot in underwear (here in one of my favorite brands “Intimissimi”) – but as you can see I did, because I managed to overcome those concerns in a fashionway.
So, just believe in yourself and follow your dreams! ?
