“Can you remember who you were, before the world told you who you should be?”
So, I started this blog over a year ago....I kept deleting posts, or archiving them, and nothing just seemed to fit what I wanted for this space. I'm a hairstylist, I love fashion, I love fitness...so being a "beauty blogger" or "fashion blogger" seemed to make sense...but it isn't ME.
That's not to say that I WON'T share that stuff...it just won't be ALL of what I share. I realized that I lacked authenticity...not that I wasn't being authentic in sharing things Ioved and believed in...but I wasn't sharing what was on my heart...mostly out of fear.
What will people think? Will they read it? Does what I say even matter? ...self talk is my biggest mountain right now....but guess what...I'm writing this because it's time to get out of my own head, to be real, authentically me.
As a mom, a wife, a WOMAN, there is an expectation of who I should be...what I should do...who I should admire...the world puts labels on everything...and frankly I am tired of trying to be something or someone because THE WORLD says I should...I am me...Karissa...and I want to be who JESUS CALLED me to be.
The past year has taught me a lot about myself...I will be raw and real about all of that as well..about what i've learned, what I have over come...and what I am STILL working through.
So here is to a fresh start...not a NEW me, but the REAL me.
