In April it’ll be two years that I started blogging. But recently, I quit. I quit ohmpretty.com. I quit “blogging,” I quit going to events, I quit reviewing products, I quit doing beauty or health and wellness stuff. I quit. And the reason that I did was because I found myself not being authentic. I found myself doing what a lot of other people were doing. Everywhere I turned I saw someone talking about beauty products, or talking about the healthy thing that they are trying, or the new diet, or how they are now eating more of this and less of that. And it made me question myself and my purpose. What was my intention? Did I want to do what everyone else was doing? That isn’t why I wanted to blog. I started my blog to explore the idea of living a life you love. Living a life of passion. Not taking or believing anyone’s BS, including your own. To let go of limiting beliefs and the lies that you tell yourself for not being able to do that thing that you have always wanted to do. Lies like I’m too old, I’m too fat, I don’t have time, I have no one to help me… So I’m getting back to that. To spreading love, good vibes, and some life hacks that may help make someone’s life a little easier. I don’t want to focus on just the exterior anymore. I want to focus on being happy and fulfilled with your life, having meaningful relationships, and loving (my)yourself.
I just had a conversation with my cousin, who I love dearly and is like a sister to me, and she said, “You have a glow and inner happiness that shines through…” That right there is a celebration in itself. I didn’t always look like that, and I don’t always look like that. That image that she sees I fought tooth and nail for. I earned that happy glow through many tears. I came to learn that gratitude is a free anti-depressant (not there is anything wrong with anti-depressants if you are on them and need them, no judgment) But if I learned that, why can’t I help someone else who may be struggling with feeling that way, even if they can feel like that just a little bit more. I was having a hard time with myself, know that I was posting about a new product, and that’s it.
So I want to spread positivity as much as I can on this new site, anamfeliciano.com. (I will be making a few more updates in the coming weeks) I want to be as authentic as I can be, that’s why I let go of a blog name and used my own. I want to learn and grow from all the women that have paid for their happiness with tears, and continue to be inspired by those who invest in their happiness with gratitude.
