Hi Ribbons, I know I have been away from the blog for quite sometime, but I’m back now. It’s been a bit of a deep sea situation on my end and I suppose I never really came up for air. If you follow me on instagram, you would have been updated on my posts, as that is the platform I use to give real-time updates when I have a bit of writers block. However, if you don’t follow me there and you prefer my written content, then you’re probably wondering where I’ve been.
Well, I’ve been working on my womenswear brand as well as organising and streamlining my personal life for optimum self growth. Although I don’t have much to show yet of the brand, I can assure you that it’s coming. In my time away, life got particularly challenging and I have had to deal with the ups and downs behind the scenes. I have gotten upset, angry, excited, happy and sometimes a bit fed up in the course of this journey. Nonetheless, I’m grateful I get to experience all these ups and downs because this is how we grow as human beings. I truly believe that what does’t kill you makes you stronger and as I continue on my journey I’m learning that there are true benefits to ‘trusting the process’.
Besides all the things I’ve been getting up to behind the scenes, one main thought that keeps crossing my mind is how I want to do something different with this platform that I have created. I would like Runway Ribbons to develop into something more, something that people need, a space for creatives or just a way to give back. All that being said, I have been stuck on what exactly that THING is. It is easy for us as humans to dream, wish and believe, but executing things takes time, takes diligence and takes faith in believing that said dreams and aspirations will work.
Posting gorgeous outfit pictures coupled with interesting and sometimes thought provoking write ups, doesn’t seem to be fulfilling me as much as it once did. That does not mean that I want to quit blogging, it just tells me that I’ve got an itch to turn an already a good thing into a great thing. I’ve had thoughts of styling other people, encouraging guest posts, or interviewing influential people with a strong story to tell, but these are all just ideas. If you have any thoughts on what you would like to see Runway Ribbons grow into or what YOU want from this space, please voice it in the comments below or send me a direct message on instagram. Every thought is welcome and as always, thank you so much for your continued support.
