Reintroducing Myself To The Blogging World
“Guess who’s back, back again. Shady’s back, tell a friend.”
Did I just made you sing an Eminem song? :D
I apologize for goofing off as early as now but aside from the fact that it’s one of my favorite rap songs, I also think the song fits this post ;)
My name is Krizzia Scollon, 26 years of age. I am originally from the Philippines and migrated to Canada in 2015. This may be the first time I’m going to write on this site but I am not new in the blogging world. I am the person behind Think Happy Thoughts-- a lifestyle blog which I started just months before I migrated. On that blog, I was able to share my love for fashion, travel and the feelings I felt when I was about to migrate. And for three years, I was also able to work with some brands, expand my network and even earn money. Until one day I just knew, it's time to say goodbye.
I don’t know exactly went wrong. I just felt there was something missing and it just didn’t inspire me anymore.
But now, I am glad to say that I am so back in the blogging world.
There’s something about fall that makes me feel really down and I was thinking of a new hobby that could somehow help me cope. It reminded me of my old blog. Only then I started to miss it. I missed connecting with people who have the same passion as me. I missed writing stories that are close to my heart. I wanted to go back to writing blogs but this time I want to know what I missed before. Why did I, a girl who always have an opinion on anything, suddenly lost her voice? I looked at my old blog one last time and after reading a couple more entries, I finally got my answer.
That’s what has been missing all along. I was a total mess during the last few months of running my old blog and I wanted to hide that from everyone. In hopes of inspiring people, I intentionally hid the ugly parts. Besides, it would be ironic to open up my struggles as the blog itself tells me to “think happy thoughts”.
I realized my life isn’t perfect but it does not mean it’s not worth sharing. I shouldn’t be ashamed of sharing my struggles because it’s normal to struggle-- it’s okay not to be okay.
So here I am, back to the blogging world, with a new goal: to work with you in becoming the best version of yourself by sharing my victories and struggles in life. I want to be there for you whenever you need a boost or whenever you feel unmotivated.
I can't promise you this blog will be perfect. What I can promise is that this blog will be more authentic. It will be a blog that everyone can relate to. It will show my passion and it will show my vulnerability.
I can’t wait to be back in the blogging world and share with you the things I’ve learned in fashion and in life. I swear this will be fun!
Can we take this journey together, yes?
