My 1st Year Anniversary Post: I Believe In Magic ♥♥♥

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” 
― Paulo Coelho

~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~ ♥ ~

365 Days had gone by for this humble blog and with all honesty, it had been a tedious journey for The Fabulous Geek. I started blogging when I was in College. It was my online diary which was purely about studies, love life, friendship, movies and other what-nots which, I dare say, was very sentimental and thinking about it now, I would say it was overrated. I was taking AB Literature then, and I thought I was a good enough writer and my pride required an avenue in which I could vent out all my feelings creatively. Not. lol Seriously though, I had fully understood that I wanted to blog, but to blog about something I really am passionate about. I did not know what it was I really wanted back then, unfortunately, hence I allowed months, years, immeasurable time to go by without me really knowing what to do. Probably I did, but I was afraid to try. I have long been wanting to share my personal style through a blog, but I was timid, frightened what people would think about me. I had too many worries. I had too many questions: "what if they didn't like my style? What if I was the only one assuming that I'm fashionable?" etc etc. I let this anxiety get the better of me.

365 days ago, was a realization for me. I felt sorry that I did not even try. Nonetheless, nothing is ever too late, I kept that in mind. I have a lot of clothes and I felt good and beautiful whenever I wore them. Why should I even bother if nobody ever liked the way I dressed up? I knew I should do this otherwise, I will let another lifetime roll by and regret that I did not. So here I am now, trying to squish into the fashion blogosphere. 365 days back, I was a newbie and I knew and I got nothing, except my passion and my personal style. I know I will be walking, running, and chasing the ribbon mile highway before my blog somehow attracts readers from all parts of the globe. It was quite a long wait, but somehow I knew, it would be all worth it.

I researched, I explored, I discovered, and I realized that everyone from around the world have different tastes and styles and are very bold! Everyone dared, everyone defied what used to be the norms in the fashion world. Everyone was all for color blocking and print on prints, and heelless shoes and spiked tops. Everyone is free and happy and the world was more colorful and lively than ever. Everything was fiercer than I had known it to be. But then again, this was what I was made for. I was never a part of the mainstream society. Like these fashionistas, I had always been the different girl among the black and white crowd. I had people's questioning eyes on me. "Why is she wearing pink with mint green? Or yellow with orange? Why is she wearing prints everywhere?" They all questioned, and I didn't care. I was happy being the bold and the bright and the colorful.

I knew I did something right, and that this is where I belong: A realm of fashion where the only rule is No Holds Barred. I am here, and loving it!
