Hey everyone! How are we all this week? I’m writing this on a Monday night, unsure when/if I’m going to actually post this blog, but I can already feel like this week is going to be a good one.
I’ve been really excited to write this post, and announce a few changes that will be coming to The Big F Word. Eekkkk!!
I’ll explain from the start…
So last year, without going into too much detail, I went through quite a lengthy phase of experiencing huge self-doubt. There was a lot more to it than that, but one thing I doubted was The Big F Word.
I told myself, ‘It’s crap, why are you even wasting your time with this? Just stop putting your time and energy into it. No one will even notice.’
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m fully aware that this ain’t Vogue or Cosmo, but when I started it back in November 2017, I couldn’t of been prouder. So where did I lose this pride along the way?
There was a bit more to it, but at the time I thought I was the only person on this planet that felt like that. I now know, that that’s not the case. I’m 100% certain that whoever is reading this has experienced something similar too.
As a young 20-something-year-old woman, who is trying to get her shit together and find her path in life, there is a lot of pressure to be this perfect, successful version of yourself. And comparing yourself to people who you don’t even bloody know on Instagram, doesn’t do you any favours.
So after a while of feeling this sense of ‘unworthyness’, I realised that there was no way I was going to let this continue. Because after all, what defines success? And what defines happiness? What you might be over the moon about, might not even get me excited – so who are we to compare ourselves?
Fast forward a few months, and a lot of brainstorming and mind-mapping later, I knew there was more to The Big F Word. While I absolutely LOVE fashion, accessories and all things beauty, I know there’s more to life than all these pretty, beautiful things. Now don’t get more wrong, nothing perks me up like a shopping spree, but I also know that there is so much more to life. And I KNOW there are plenty of females out there who are feeling the same.
So as of May, 2019, The Big F Word is now a community of fashionably focused females.
A place where we can come together, discuss fashion and beauty, but also real-life shit like our goals, our careers, our problems and encourage each other every day.
The Big F Word is a community where females can empower each other to reach their full potential, whatever that might be, while looking fabulous! We are focused on our goals and no one is going to get in our way.
In a world that’s filled with bitches and bullys – let’s unite and be ambitious, powerful and fashionable together.
I’d love to hear what you think of all this. What do you want to see from this online community?
The first thing you have to do, if you want to be a part of it all, is join the closed Facebook Group.
You’ll be the first to know of new content, any updates and everything in between. I cannot wait to show you all what’s on the way.
I’ve wanted to create this community for so long, but kept putting it off, and I completely regret that. I have such an exciting feeling in my stomach as I write this post, because I know we are about to create something amazing together.
Now, in the words our our good friend Shania –
Let’s Go Girls!
