Life happens! It’s something I’ve been saying a lot lately and I just felt this need to sit down and record a new video and talk about some personal issues I’ve been dealing with. Sharing videos like this is seriously terrifying, but I want to keep my channel an honest one and I’d be lying if I told you I was perfectly fine lately. Stress, anxiety, negativity and self-doubt have been the normal for me for such a long time and I realized that I needed to make some changes. I’ve been talking about these changes for a long time, but it’s like one day I finally said “This is enough” and here we are.
This video is honest, emotional and very personal. I literally sat down in front of the camera and I wasn’t even sure what I was going to say or talk about. I didn’t even really edit the video. For the perfectionist in me, this is a big deal, ha. I just wanted to talk and be honest about where I’m at in life right now. I feel like what I’ve been going through and dealing with is an important story to tell and instead of just posting pretty pictures and talking about the next big product, a goal of mine was to share my struggles and my story and that’s exactly what I’m doing in this video.
I’m opening up and sharing my issues in hopes that maybe this will inspire you to make a change in your life to better yourself! Today is the best day to start making some changes and focusing on yourself for once. If you’ve been feeling stressed, uninspired and just overwhelmed then know that you aren’t alone! I hope that you enjoy this video and if you’d like to see me do more of these types of chit-chat videos, comment below!

This really touched me today! I actually wrote a blog post today about how I’d like to do more and be more, but sometimes you need to focus on being the best version of YOU. That’s all you can control. And I’m also glad to hear you didn’t feel like an adult when you turned 30. I’m 31 and still feel that way!

I honestly thought this “miracle” would happen when I turned 30 and I’d understand everything, ha! Obviously it doesn’t work out that way! Going to go check out your piece now! Thank you for the kind words!

LOVE. YOUR. HEART.
Girl, this was such an important post. Yes, for your readers, but for YOU. Whatever else may be going on in the background, of life, know that there are people that are there for you. Don’t feel alone (come talk to me! I’d be SO happy to be a listening ear) and don’t feel as though you are aren’t enough – as you reiterated. Easier said than done in a world filled with comparisons, but it’s true. I know you’ll find that balance of dealing with life’s constant stresses and positivity. Like you said, it definitely comes in seasons! I’m glad to be in a happy season where my life seems sommmeewhaaattt together, but it’s honestly through prayer, attitude, and outlook that I’ve come to this place.
P.S. It seems really fitting that I listened to this while I did my make-up (including my wonderful Smashbox palette!) 🙂

HA!!! Thank you so much for always being so supportive! It’s never easy for me to be this open and vulnerable, but I feel like it’s important and I want to show this side of my life as well. Hopefully it allows others to know that they aren’t alone in their struggles.
We need to get together again soon!
