I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” —Philippians 4:13 (NKJV)
Holy cow, you guys! After many months, the big day is FINALLY here! Welcome to She Sweats Diamonds!
Excuse the many exclamation points, but I’ve been working so hard on my “baby” for the last six months.
In between my 9 to 5, songwriting and acting classes, traveling and a certification class (more on that later), I was hacking away on this launch.
If you’ve followed me on my old blog, I must apologize for going MIA.
I was stuck in a rut and began to feel uninspired in all areas of my life back in June. I tried to push through it through prayer, posting valuable content (I’ll repost those throughout this month) and distracting myself with other things despite how I felt, but when October hit, I couldn’t take it anymore so I left my blog.
So, I took a lengthy time period off my old blog to find my purpose, grow closer to God and to be honest, find the old, real me. It’s been a long and hard road for me mentally. I ran because I wasn’t sure if I was making a difference in anyone’s life. Now, I say that because I couldn’t see the difference in my own life.
I gave my life back to Christ and have been rebuilding our relationship.
I also had a health setback due to a car accident I was in a few days before Thanksgiving and am just NOW starting to work out again (more on this later too). I’ve learned a lot within this last year and I’m so thankful for God’s grace through it all. I couldn’t have made it without Him and my friends.
It took an event I attended in Vegas back in December for me to understand, know, and see the vision God has for me and that’s why I’m back. This time, I’m not running away. I’ve got my shoes laced up and I’m ready to run the race God has called me to run!
I’m SO excited to be sharing She Sweats Diamonds with you! Here on SSD, you’ll find topics on fashion, beauty, wellness, leadership, and sustainable living.
My number one focus is to provide value and inspire you to take action on your dreams.
I cannot think of better way to kick off 2017 than with this blog launch. Stay tuned because I have a ton to tell you! In the meantime, let me know what you think of the website! I still have a ton of work to do on it, but I know hitting ‘Publish’ with it being imperfect now is more important than waiting for everything to be perfect!
