As some of you might already know, Neutrogena recently launched its first-ever global campaign titled, See What’s Possible, inviting women to share how they overcame challenges to make their dreams a reality. I’m thrilled to be able to collaborate with them on this campaign.
When I first started my blog eight years ago, it all started as just a hobby. It wasn’t until three years after that I actually saw the potential of making this my full-time job. I was tired of working at a 9 to 5 job I absolutely hated and that didn’t fulfill me as a person at all. But to be honest, the thought of just quitting my day-job and pursuing my blog scared me. Along the way there will always be people that don’t believe in your dreams, they might even think you’re crazy. But I always used other people’s doubt as my strength to keep moving forward. Sometimes we let fear get in the way, but don’t let it.
Today, I’m so grateful to be able to wake-up each morning and work on Viva Fashion. There were many times where I could have easily given up—-but I didn’t. It’s also so important to always surround yourself with other people that believe in your dreams. My late husband was always my biggest cheerleader. He was always there supporting everything I did. When he passed away from cancer back in October, I must admit I didn’t feel like blogging anymore. My life came at a standstill. But deep down inside, I knew that’s not what he would have wanted for my life. He would want me to live—-and live boldly. Through his life, he taught me that life is too short to not be following your dreams. So today, that’s what I do, I continue to follow my dreams and I know I’m honoring him by doing so.
One thing I always ask people when I chat with them is what their passions are. If I were to ask you right now, are you fulfilling your passion? If not, why don’t you start believing that everything is possible. To give you some inspiration, check out this video from Neutrogena from their See What’s Possible campaign. It has such a great message and it’s all about women empowerment and putting your best face forward.
And speaking of putting your best face forward, I always find this also helps to get your day started on the right foot. It’s so important that we take good care of ourselves. Some of the Neutrogena products I swear by (and also help me take on the challenges of each and every day) is their Ultra-Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen. It’s perfect for when I’m outside working out. I also love their Naturals Purifying Makeup Cleansing Towelettes (when I’m too tired at night to take my make-up off).
At the end of the day, it’s your life and you only get one. Do what makes you happy and you’ll see that everything is possible #VerasQueEsPosible
