My last post was called “The Great Escape” and I was dreaming of a vacation with my husband. Today, it’s not about dreams, it’s real life. It has been a little while since my last post, and I have a little story for you. It’s called “The Greatest Comeback,” and I’m here to stay.
First of all, my exciting news: I started a fabulous new job on Monday! It’s like HGTV in real life plus writing and a great team. One word: bazinga. I wore this outfit for my second day. I need a second just to say what a difference a positive work environment makes!
Sadly, this life change also meant a revelation of some unfortunate truths in other aspects of my #getitgirl ambitions. I realized some people I had previously admired were not the type of #getitgirls I had originally hoped. I even half-considered stopping blogging because the thought of someone pawning my ideas as their own left me disillusioned — but only for a minute. Some of the real #getitgirls in my life advised me to do otherwise, but I realized the greatest comeback would not be in stooping to a lower level but in moving forward. The strongest move in the face of opposition is to keep at it. I’m ambitious, after all, and I’m sticking around. (That is, until Anna claims me.)
Shoutout to all the real people in the world: all my love. Shoutout to my haters: sorry that you couldn’t faze me.
Can’t wait to see what’s in store for this #getitgirl and company, in every sense of the word. Greatness is what we on the brink of.
