This year has been a roller coaster for me.
I have been stuck in a weird funk since March.
I am very analytic, way to analytic I would say and other people too.
After attending a big event this year, I started analyzing every single aspect of what I have been doing, and what I wanted to do.
I thought I had figured it out, but honestly I was still feeling stuck.
Until this day, there are days where I still feel stuck in that funk.
I hate feeling stuck because when I feel like that way, I know what I need to do to get out of it, but it’s like I’m limited and I can’t move forward.
Usually when I feel this way, I begin to over analyze and over think about every single thing.
My main focus than directs to everything I have not been able to complete or accomplish, rather than the things I have completed.
I started out my blog as an outlet to regain some “Me Time”
If you know me in real life, you should know that after giving birth, my whole life refocused solely on my daughter.
I isolated from everything and everyone, and solely focused on my daughter and role as a mother.
A lot of my friends still throw this at my face.
Last year this isolation finally catched on to me, well maybe earlier but I just wouldn’t accept it.
Around this time is where my blog was born, but I was not sure what I really wanted to do with it.
Ever since I created the blog I have not been consistent.
Fast forward to this year I decided to take it more serious and put in a little more work.
During the time frame since I first started the blog, I have been approached by important people, attended important events with important brands.
Blogging is all about networking, making the right connections and most importantly the work you put in.
I often struggle with all the items mentioned above.
Not so much getting out there and networking, more on the following up portion of networking.
I would have to blame this to fear, honestly I’ve have felt fearful about reaching out after meeting with this brands or people.
I didn’t feel confident enough to reach out and pitch to them, not to mention how would I feel if I was rejected.
There are times when I have been reached out by email about a project and I freeze, I read, respond to the message but than I stop because I’m scared I won’t be able to bring to the table what they want.
I don’t know, I can’t explain why I have been scared, so I would ignore the message or project.
So needless to say I have missed on opportunities due to fear.
I am ready to let go of my fear and take my blog more serious and put in work to make it work.
Social media has become so competitive and saturated, but I am a true believer that everyone is different and has it’s own way in sharing things, everyone is UNIQUE.
Life As Sayra feels more like ME.
This is my corner where I sit and focus on me and share my story.
I wanted to re brand the blog for a while but as mentioned before I was scared, I wasn’t sure I wanted to fully put in the work.
I am ready to put in the work and bring more content to the table.
I decided to change my previous site name from QueenIshBySayra to Life As Sayra.
It’s a change that I felt was necessary for the growth of the blog not to mention my own personal evolution.
Thank you guys for all your love and support and I hope you guys enjoy me through my blog.
Don’t forget to connect via social media if ya need a friend I’m here too!
I believe in the waves wiping away worries.
