Since 2014, I wanted to create a blog. I created one but failed in keeping it alive.
No matter how much I tried to keep my old blog alive and turn it into something I loved, it never worked out. I never made time for it and I was never satisfied with it. After much thinking, I realized it was never the right time for one. I wasn’t at a place in my life where I could make room for it, and I didn’t have much of a self-esteem to back me up in the process. I honestly didn’t know what I was doing. Eventually, I left it on the backend, but it was something that always lingered in the back of my mind. I always wanted to make this blog work. I wanted a place to express myself, share my love for clothes and share the things I cared about while being creative and inspiring others in the process.
Fast-forward to present time and I feel like Brisa is in a better place now (yes, I sometimes speak in the third person). Sometimes you sit down with yourself and think about where you are physically and mentally; take things in. Self-reflection is important and a necessity. I’m in a much better place where I believe I can do things. Hence, the start of this blog. I feel like I’m finally ready to create something of my own. I’m ready to do this for myself. I’m ready to give this blog a life.
So I welcome you and hope you stay for the ride. I’m not sure what will become of it, but I hope it’ll never have to turn into a pending project in my mind again.
