One Year

Why did I choose the name In the Blue?
Our planet is called the blue planet and 70% of the Earth's surface is covered by water. When we look up at the sky we see a blue horizon, a blue line that seems infinite, but at night it disappears and we see stars {lots of them}. Life as we know it is lived in the blue, and I live in that blue.

Exactly a year a go today I embarked on a journey of self discovery, self love and self style. So much has happened and I've learned so much. I've learned to not compare myself to anyone, it does nothing for your self-esteem. I have learned to not care what people think, if you're happy that's all that matters. Most of all, I've learned not to be so critical and hard on myself {I am still working on being my own best friend}. Life is about change, adapting and going with the flow. Its made up of moments painted together to form a picture, a self portrait. Moments are pieces of time that make up our experiences, our understanding of not only ourself, but the world. 

When I initially started this blog, I had no idea what I wanted it to be. Over the past year I've struggled to post consistently and really showcase who I am. Looking back at my posts and pictures makes me really appreciate myself for starting this blog, its like my virtual dressing room diary.  However, I've decided to change things up a bit and add different types of content that are a reflection of me. Stay tuned. {If you read all of this then, thank you so much for reading}. Thank you to each one of you who has consistently come back to my blog, I appreciate it!
