Remember the Her world Plus Social Media Awards that I blogged about last month here, here and here? Voting period was over and the result was out. Believe it or not, I WON. Thank you so much for your votes and your kind support from the bottom of my heart. Thank you Forever21 for choosing me as your favorite choice. Six years ago, I was still dreaming of one day I could afford to buy some beautiful dresses from your store. Today, I achieved that dream in a way that I've never expected.
Winning an award is pretty surreal whether it's big or small. It tells me that I'm doing something right and motivates me to be a better version of myself. You might not know this, but I did feel like giving up blogging many times. I felt like I was hitting against the wall and I was wasting my time. The blog wasn't moving to where I wanted it to be. It was frustrating. But when everything feels like the uphill struggle, thinking of the view from the top does help to push me forward. The panoramic view from the top is the biggest reward for those who can endure the climb.
I wasn't climbing in this wide-leg pants, bare-back top and heels obviously. While I was shooting this outfit for Revolve Clothing two weeks ago, the view from where I was standing made me appreciate what I have in life and reminded me why I should work hard and never give up. I just wanted to share this positive vibe with you. I hope your dream will come true very soon.
Thank you so much for reading!
