We often tend to see proud accomplishments and life highlights on social media. And I just want you to remember that people with amazing successes, accomplishments & dreams also had lows and personal struggles. And if they didn’t latley, I can guarantee, they did the years leading to it.
Don’t get me wrong, I am all for celebrating life accomplishments, reminding ourselves of all that we are capable of, and setting up goals & strategizing on how to get them!
But remember, without lows we don’t appreciate the highs. And to get to succeed, we need to fail, learn & grow. Thats why I love sharing the struggles & difficult times here too. Because that’s how life works!
As we enter a new decade I want to quickly remind you where I was 10 years ago & an important message.
In 2010 I had just moved to LA from Barcelona on my own, I didn’t know anyone in the city, I had just graduated my BA degree in PR and Advertising, I had no professional experience in my field of study, I had no clue where I wanted to go, and I was broke. I didn’t know what being healthy was, I didn’t know what self care was, I really didn’t know how to be happy and fulfilled.
Figuring out my personal & professional path (and who I was along the way) took years. Los Angeles definitely doesn’t make it easy. I wasn’t happy, healthy, positive or successful. I failed way too many times. I took the wrong turns. Trusted the wrong people. And it took me forever to start saving money, to create a real home, to feel good inside & out. But you know what? It all made me strong and learn what i know. Without it I wouldn’t be where I am today.
Everything you see now is real, pure and honest. But it didn’t come easy. I wasn’t born with it. And with this, what I want to tell you is that, maybe you are now at a point of your life where you are lost, struggling, failing, or it simply wasn’t your best year. And that’s okay too! Because only the best have been through the worst. And 2020 is a fresh new start, to keep growing and learning, and figuring it all out!
Cheers to failures that lead us to success!
