Today, I just want to speak to you guys from the heart.
On this day, GlowUp has a total of 6 subscribers, and I couldn’t be more grateful. Starting a blog is not an easy thing to do, especially for those of us who overthink every little thing in life. It takes courage to push the ‘publish’ button, subjecting yourself, and your thoughts to the scrutiny of an internet universe that can be, at best, a wee bit harsh, wouldn’t you say? If I go into my head right now, I will hear a voice reminding me of a hundred reasons why this post isn’t good enough, why I’m not good enough, and no one wants to hear what I have to say. I’d like to disassociate myself from this voice. I have decided that it’s not mine. I think this voice lives in all of us. It’s doubt, insecurity, and fear. We’ll refer to it as ‘DIF’. Today, I am breaking up with DIF. We’ve been in this toxic relationship for too long and it’s finally time to call it.
I believe in GlowUp, and if you are reading this, I want you to know that I believe in you too, and you are welcome here. 🙂
What is GLOW UP?
GlowUp is a place for people to come and feel safe and happy. To take a break from the stress of life and connect with other people who are trying to get the most out of their life journey. To be inspired by other explorers and experiencers, and to let our voices be heard. There is one voice, however, that will never be heard here on GlowUp. Can you guess who I’m talking about? Thats right. DIF. This is a DIF free zone. I will keep reminding myself of this, and I encourage you all to have a conversation with DIF and let it know that you’ve had a good run, but you’re starting a new relationship with courage, strength, and positivity. Whatever shape this blog takes– lifestyle, beauty, travel–this is the mission statement. This is the heart of GlowUp. Join me on this exciting journey. So long Diffy! Not so nice to know ya! #GlowUp
