Hello there! I had the most amazing weekend at Alt Summit. I was so hesitant about going, but with some prodding from my girl Elle, and a lot of help from my sister-friend Susan, it turned out to be an unforgettable weekend.
I could go on and on about all the details, or the super awesome people I met (and I’m sure I will at some point). But I thought I’d share with you what I believed to be my most important take-away: be yourself.
Looking to increase your readership? Or for new ideas and ways to collaborate? Easy! Be yourself. Aspiring to be a trend-setter, TV star or game changer? You guessed it lovers, be yourself.
Now, I really did learn a lot of great new facts about photography, video blogging, and how to look my best on camera. But the ever-echoing message in my very congested head was, “ONLY YOU CAN BE YOU.”
I think as bloggers, artists, writers, workers, mothers and lovers, it’s easy to look around at the success of others, and get lost. I know that as I try to improve, emulate and make sacrifices in order to reach my goals I need to be careful not to forget who I really am and what actually makes me happy.
So, what makes me happy? Sharing love, sharing my ideas, and looking like an dork.
I’m excited for the new sense of purpose and direction I have, and I hope that you, beloved reader, benefit from it!
p.s. a HUGE thank you to the sassy classy Natalie for naming me one of Alt’s up-and-coming bloggers! Let’s hope I can make her proud
