Thank You For Voting -- InfluenceHer of the Year

I’m so excited by this news...

and I was even more excited to say THANK YOU to everyone who voted and supported me. 
I couldn’t be more grateful to have the support and love from each and every one of you.

Read my Q&A feature here.

I never want to come across as someone who is hungry for recognition because that isn’t me. 
It makes me excited to see people enjoying my content and feeling inspired by it. 
That’s what this means to me. 

Those who chase success in the form of follower counts, likes, compliments, awards will never truly be satisfied. I know that because when I was first starting, I fell under the pressure. I needed to be at the top, and if it meant sacrificing my health, my happiness, then so be it. I was willing to take that risk because I felt that was the only way. I was giving up on finding other options.

I used to believe the only way to be successful in this industry was to have more. 
More designer bags. More clothes. More luxurious goods. More followers. More likes. 
More this, more that. But the more you are surrounded by it, you’ll realize that MORE will never be enough. 

Something I used to fear about blogging was what it could possibly do to me. Putting myself in situations where I could potentially travel for free, attend luxurious events, receive free items... all of it felt exciting for sure (it still does), but I was worried it would change me. That I would fall for the pleasures of this world and lose myself completely because of it. I've learned to turn to God and trust Him that he will give me the strength to get through it. That even through all the temptations and distractions, I won’t lose sight of who I am and my purpose.

I'm a firm believer that true success cannot be measured in numbers. Nor will numbers ever determine your worth. Please remember that. There will be many hardships you’ll face where you’ll be tested with whether you want to take the easy route or the route that requires determination, strength, and stressful days where you'll just want to quit. 

Except the only difference is that yes, you may not see results right away... but it will be so worth it.

Don’t ever let success define who you are.

Thank you again for choosing me as your InfluenceHer of the Year.
