I’ve been constantly struggling about writing something that I actually know and care about. My blog has been in different paths these last few months. I had no idea what I was doing. I changed my blog’s name and domain 3 times now and I was so unsure of what to write about. But yesterday, a random video came into my YouTube feed. It was related to an entrepreneur girl who graduated from college a year ago. This girl’s name is Julia Haber. She is a young entrepreneur who has already created a brand and a community of empowered young women. I found this fascinating. I’ve never been opened about my actual future desires, even though I’m always bringing the college topic.
My main goal at this age, I’m 20 btw. Is create something that can inspire girls from all around the world to pursue their dreams, to feel empowered, to have that boss girl attitude. I believe that having a focused mindset can help all of us to create amazing things. And here is the deal. I was not having my mindset focused on being that boss girl that I’m really trying to be.
My career goal is to be one of the best in what I’m studying. I’ve always been a nerd when it comes to school. I’m always passionate about the things I do and I always try to do my best. I know that in order to achieve my goals I need to work hard and I have to be consistent. I’ve always imagined myself with an amazing wardrobe, walking in London with a cup of coffee on one hand and talking on the phone with important CEOs on the other one. This is one of my biggest goals in life, and I know I’m going to do whatever it takes to reach it.
Of course, there are times when all I want to do is watch Netflix and stop going to college. But if I actually did that, that goal would never be achieved or at least not the way I want it. So, I just give myself the pep talk and focus on the things that I really want to achieve, one day in the near future. And here is where the blog comes in.
I was just not being true to myself. I was creating content in order to get followers and subscribers. The content started to suck at one point. Yesterday at my lack of motivation I started scrolling through my own posts and deleted like 3 or 4 of them. I don’t even know where those came from, cause I would never come back to this blog if I read that. I know I’m trashing my own work, but guys I have to be honest. If I hadn’t realized this soon, my blog would start to go down. And I don’t want that at all.
So, what am I going to do? Well, I’m going to start my vacation period so I’m going to be focusing on the blog a lot. I’ll start making this an actual way of inspiration, of self-love, of empowerment, in a few words I want to create a community. A girl community that is willing to learn, to work hard, to try new things and start inspiring others as well.
My blog’s name is Behind A Smart & Girly Mindset, which is actually based on my domain which is smartgirlymindset.com. This was chosen because I wanted to create something different, something that is commonly put aside. I’m going, to be honest, I wanted to use a name that included Girl Boss, but the truth is I’ve seen a lot of Girl Boss blogs and they’re amazing, but there are a lot of them. So I wanted to still focus on entrepreneurs women but using other words. Of course, every guy is welcomed if they need some inspiration or positivity in their life. I’m not trying to ditch boys, cause this is not my plan. You’re all welcome, but I would be focusing more on Girl Boss attitude and girl empowerment, just to be clear.
With everything I’ve mentioned before I want to thank Julia Haber and Margot Lee, for sharing that video, it really inspired me. And one thing that Julia said is “You have to be willing to expose yourself” and this really got me. Cause as I said in a post from a while ago, I was so terrified of sharing my work with others. But, I gotta step out of that comfort zone and start creating what I want to create.
So, I’m inviting you to join me through this process. I’m going to be sharing things related to positivity as always, cause this is something really important for mental health. Things related to college on how to have good grades, my best tips, and tricks, also some experiences I’ve had here in my current college, etc. Posts related to lifestyle will also be included because I really enjoy writing about it. Empowerment, the girl boss attitude, career tips and other things related to the smart and girly mindset. I really hope that you join this community, our community and I hope to see all your beautiful faces on the next post.
