Wow, I cannot believe that 4 years ago today I started this blog. I can honestly say am not sure what I was expecting Styles By Sally to turn into back then, but I do know I was not expecting it to start a personal journey for me.
In August of last year, I made a decision to start a journey of honesty and self-love and it lead me to a place I didn’t know that I could be.
I spent years tying my worth to my looks and weight. Don’t get me wrong, I still do. And this self isolation is not making that any easier. However, I keep remembering the promise I made to be honest and to love myself. It sounds like an easy promise to keep but social media makes it so easy to lie. A little smoothing here, a little filter there. And all of a sudden, you aren’t your authentic self. I know I am guilty of this, but I also try my hardest to be honest.
It took almost 4 and a half years for me to realize that I do this whole thing for ME. And that my self worth is not tied to anything that I choose to put on the internet. And it is still something that I struggle with everyday. I think that years from now we’ll have a name for this just like with any other mental illness or eating disorder. But for now, I just have to be authentic and try my best to share my truest life with all of you.
Happy Anniversary to me and thank you all for being a part of this journey.
I don’t have the most followers. I don’t have the best blog. But I do have a voice and I am using it in the best way that I can.
I am small, but I am mighty.
