R E C E N T L Y I’ve been struggling. I was super excited to launch this blog and so far I have loved the response I’ve seen and the content I’ve shared. But that nagging voice in the back of my head continues to persist and I’ve begun to question my abilities and my direction, already.
I want this blog to be not just a place for me to share memories or my latest fashion choice, but I want it to be a place for connection & inspiration–a place for support & community.
I’ve let myself hurt myself. That is not okay.
As I’ve stated at the beginning, I’ve struggled for years with self-love. I’ve let myself hurt myself. That is not okay. I need to remember how important is it to continue to love myself–all of myself. I have to remember that it’s going to be a journey–one that I hope to share with you all in some way.
Finding a voice is important, especially when one’s voice has been silenced.
Right now, I’m figuring out my voice & my direction for Just Add More. After years of listening to the negative voices, I need to learn how to speak & share with my actual voice. I need to be confident in my voice. I need to drown out the negative & focus on the positive.
Finding a voice is important, especially when one’s voice has been silenced. So while I’m currently on my blogging-voice-finding-mission, I thought it would be important to share with you all some voices that may not always be heard, but are definitely voices that should be heard.

So as I continue through the flows, waves, peaks & drops of this journey, I hope you’ll follow along. I hope you’ll bare with me through the growing pains! From what I’ve read, it’s definitely a rite of passage with blogging.
