I have always been an introvert. I was a quiet girl growing up and even as a grown woman I’m still a little apprehensive when I meet new people. Even more so when I’m in a new place, whether it’s work or school. I clam up and the more nervous I am, the worse I feel. Even to the point of slight panic, from the many stares or meanderings of whispering I hear, or just even an introduction, causes my words to jumble and thoughts to rush out of my head. I am, however, able to overcome this debilitation, when I gather enough courage to dismiss the feelings of nervousness. My humor has helped, because although I have social anxiety, I am quite an interesting & funny character and can work a crowded room if forced too.
But that’s the thing. I wanted to stop forcing myself to be comfortable and be comfortable in my own skin. I decided awhile ago that I would not let my fear of new things and introvert attitude to stifle my life.
That’s why I have decided to make my life based around fearlessly pursuing my passions and living life to the fullest. My new life motto.
I am branching out and branding myself with a new outlook. I am fun and spunky and I have so many talents, aspirations, and goals that I can not continue to hide it.
So I’m stepping out to become a new woman. A self professed super nerd who hoards magazines all about fashion. A beauty fanatic and newbie photographer who would love to shoot for fashion magazines.
My new found path to realize all of my dreams through my passions is going to be an incredible journey and even if I fail…. I’m succeeding by trying.
