I think the blogging world, pointing out fashion and beauty bloggers, has become something so big and grew together with some top bloggers so much faster anyone could ever imagine. I sometimes question someone's ambition. We've always been very supporting and more than nice to each other in the blogging community and that can sometimes lead to forgetting about our flaws which we need to face before we can grow from anything. I guess we want to be happy, but what makes us happy in the first place? Is it truly the 10 pair of shoes you bought last month? Or is it sitting on the couch watching a movie with your boyfriend?
We want to make money, because we need to pay our rent and bills have to be paid. But we also want some extra money to go shopping. We buy certain designer items because.. why? Because you've saved for it and have the right to buy something for yourself? Because you need it? I believe our decisions can lead to opportunities or events that'll happen in the future. Whether that's a decision on buying shoes or visiting the family. I'd like to be honest and clear about everything. I have never really had a good relationship with my parents, but does that mean I should forget about them now that I'm living on my own? I'd like to spend more time and more energy in my relationship with my parents and even though we had ups and downs, I'm so very blessed to have them in my life.
It's eventually choosing not only what's best for ourselves, because that would be completely selfish. I think we would want someone else to care about us, so I choose to care about you first. I've always been a deep thinker, but I think I've lost that somewhere on the way. I would never want to be 'just another blogger' and think fashion is great just because it says fashion. Enjoy your Monday!
