The month of February marks a year since I began building Cheerful Chic, and so far it has been an amazing journey full of learning experiences, struggles, and victories big and small! As our first birthday approaches, I have been reflecting on my experiences thus far. I wouldn't be where I am today without the support and encouragement of friends and loved ones, but also the inspiration and knowledge from some amazingly strong and passionate women. I thought I'd share with you all some of the women that I admire and I hope that you find some inspiration in their stories like I did.
A longtime friend and fellow #GirlBoss recently introduced me to a inspirational speaker/author named Lara Casey. Lara's story is a familiar one, one that many can relate to: an average woman with big dreams. Despite suffering several devastating blows throughout her personal and professional life, she finally found "her calling" and worked to make her dreams a reality. After years of hard work and many humbling experiences, her work paid off. Through her book, blog, and "powersheets" she inspires women everyday by providing guidance and helping them set goals and take action to live a life they love. I highly recommend taking the time to read her inspiring story. There is so much value to be gained from reading her experiences and I have listed my personal takeaways below:
I am so excited about what the future holds for us here at Cheerful Chic and look forward to having you along for the journey. Thank you so much to Heather for introducing me to Lara Casey!
