You read the title right. Yes, I’m back and this time for good!
First off, let me apologize to all my readers that I’ve abandoned over these past two years. I truly apologize & thank y’all for sticking around!
And a warm welcome to all those that are new! Hey love, I’m so glad you decided to join us.
So what happened?!?
Honestly, life happened. The pressure of my senior year played a major part in my decision to take a break. I wanted to focus on getting my degree and prep for post-grad life.
So…Dec. 2017 comes around and I’ve made it to the promised land of graduation! Back to blogging right? No. I did have this big plan that I would start back...but then life happened. Again.
Y’all, post-grad life is no joke. More about that soon.
On top of that, fear and the death trap of comparison creeped into my mind every time I thought about blogging. I would have thoughts like: “You’re going to fail and screw up like you did the first time” or “You’re not good enough”. Awful thoughts kept me back from my plan of relaunching. With the combination of life happening and fear, I just decided to give up. Instead, I invested my time, talents, and all that good stuff into other opportunities or those around me to help them reach their goals & passions. Which left me forgetting about my own. Which is the the total opposite of why I started this blog in the first place.
How did I end up back here?!?
God. He has a crazy way of taking us through seasons in our life that lead us towards what it is that he wants us to do or things he wants us to realize.
Currently, I’m in a season where the “plans” I had set for myself have just been failing from left to right or they’re not going as I envisioned. Through this rough patch God reminded me of the vision and dream He placed in my heart so long ago. He reminded me of the reasons I started Mane Style in the first place.
It was time to stop allowing fear hold me hostage and my unhealthy habit of putting others over myself keep me from my passions. Enough was enough and it was time to stop running. So one night, I decided to stop playing myself and got to work. It was time for Asia to believe in herself.
With all that being said…I’m just grateful to be back. Thank you to everyone who has supported and encouraged me over time from the beginning until now.
I have so much planned and I can’t wait to share it with y’all. Lets see where this journey takes me on the second time around. I’m ready for the ride…are you?
