I woke up this morning wanting to share beyond a fluff post, to share a little bit about me. Beyond what I am on paper, more like “an about me on a transparent level.” I was thinking of a caption for a post the other day when the words came to me and even though I wrote it in my notes, it has just remained there. But today, I finally got to turn it into more than 300 words.
My name is Titilola and I am super hard on myself. I find it hard to celebrate my wins or even accept compliments sometimes. I don’t like speaking in public (hence why most of my Instagram stories usually have music in the background.) Even small gatherings can be a bit of a challenge for me sometimes and my love-hate relationship with my accent doesn’t help either. To be completely honest, physically, I am also still on that journey to love every single part of my body. (I am in a better place than say 5 years ago though.)
What’s ironic is how my passion challenges every single thing I mentioned above. Dressing up, taking photos, sharing on social, hosting events, attending events, etc some of what comes with what I do, is making me more of the person I want to be.
I am thankful for a passion that forces me to deal with my issues every single day. The worse kind of feeling is knowing what you struggle with and feeling helpless. Not knowing where to start. I know this cos I was in that head space for years. While I am still a work in progress, my passion for fashion and my quest to help others and ultimately solve problems is making me more of the woman I want to become.
I am not advising you to start a blog if you relate to any of what I mentioned above LOL, all I am saying is FIND AN OUTLET THAT FUELS YOU (we all have it) and it might just amaze you what else you will uncover.
Still shy, still fearful but not letting any of that hold me back. Here is hoping that it helps maybe just one person go after something. Let me know your thoughts, leave a comment, send me an e-mail. Cheers guys!
