Last Night I Gave Up (LNIGU)

Whenever I decided to launch this site, I think a lot of people thought it would've been a style blog. Perhaps it seemed natural for me to offer style advice and to share the latest trends. But, as you'll come to see my vision is a bit different. One of my biggest goals with this site is to use my life experiences to help other people who may face similar mountains. 

This space is about surrender, love, hope, self-worth, growth, insecurity and life. A few months ago my friend, Kenneth, and I read a book called "Return to Love" by Marianne Williamson, where she discusses the only two true emotions in life are love and fear. I realized that for such a long time I was paralyzed by fear and it kept me from walking into some pretty amazing opportunities. 

The words of this blog are inspired by a night at work where I was working late and I was frustrated because I felt "stuck." I felt unappreciated, underpaid, and most important: unhappy. I broke down in the middle of the office and started crying. I walked into the bathroom, went into a stall, and just uttered the only words I could find on my heart. I said "God, I give up. What is that you want me to do? I can't do this anymore." 

In this space, I'll share my journey to finding happiness and giving up everything else that kept (keeps) me from getting there. They say in order to "get" you have to "let." Well, I'm prepared to let a few things go to save my soul.

Thanks for being a part of my journey.
