Sometimes I feel completely overwhelmed and heavily burdened when it comes to blogging. I don’t feel this way all the time, but there are days where I feel like I could just give it all up. Today was one of those days. This week started off rough and I had to make some tough decisions concerning the blog. I never knew how much work blogging could be. At times it is very rewarding, while other times, you feel as if no one notices your hard work. I had told my hubby that I need a “blogging vacay” to recharge and let my heart take a short break since it is my entire heart that I put into A Courageous Beauty. Confiding in my hubby and a blogger friend about how overwhelmed and discouraged I had become, I didn’t realize what was waiting for me when I came home this afternoon. My blogger best, Kait from Make Mine Maroon surprised me by showing up to my house with a slice of cake for a pick me up. Kait is easily one of the most generous and selfless people I have the privilege of knowing. I can confidently say that this blog wouldn’t be half of what it is without her friendship, help, and support. (I mean that for all my #stylecollective bloggers!) I felt so incredibly loved when Kait took the time to come and lift my spirits.
After Kait went home, I logged into my Facebook and Instagram account and found another sweet surprise. LC Lauren Conrad had featured my look on her page! Lauren Conrad has continued to be so supportive of her fans as I had mention on previous blog post here, were she took the time to like one of my posts. What a privilege and blessing it is to be featured on the LC Lauren Conrad FB and IG account and my heart couldn’t be more full! Thank you so much for this opportunity!
It’s these moments that encourage me, not only to continue doing all the work, but to dream big about what could be.
