A mini throwback.
Time to keep it real. I was so afraid back then. I had all of my shirts in March but didn’t release any until September. I kept waiting for the perfect time and other days I just straight up procrastinated. I had a vision with no motivation and I learned quickly that I wouldn’t get far with that type of combination. I was able to pull myself together and plan this shoot with the help of somebody I was dating at the time because my funds were low. The mini-lookbook came out amazing because @alrdysuccessful did his thing with the camera, @niaraindigo helped me with styling and of course @naesantana_ gave face! Shirts sold and feedback was great but I found myself unmotivated and stuck AGAIN. I struggled with consistency most days and I knew I had to change. I felt like I was in a hole and I couldn’t get out.
Fast forward to TWO YEARS LATER and I have the new black color way releasing in March along with the other cool things I’ve been up to. I am in a different space now mentally and I’m so happy for the “new” me. I really never thought I would be able to climb out the "hole" and be the me that I knew I could be. I shot the new photos for the #TomboyChicThursday series two days ago and I almost cried in the Uber on my way back home. I have been KILLIN’ it since January! That may not seem like a long time to some but the old me couldn’t stay motivated for longer than two weeks!
If you’re feeling stuck right now, IT’S OKAY! You won’t be in that hole for long! Just keep pushing and find the things that make you happy!
