HEY GUYS! I am beyond excited to announce that my blog is 1 month today! YAHOO! I did it! I took a simple vision in my brain, a thriving passion in my heart and a powerful determination within to make the “impossible” possible! The past 8 months I have made many sacrifices and put my heart and soul into this very space I now like to refer to as my home. I feel so fortunate everyday that I am able to express my feelings, my visions, and my healthy creations with you all and at the end of each day my heart continues to feel so full of happiness and gratitude. So today I am sending the biggest “thank you” to those of you who have stood by and supported my endeavours. In times when I sadly was criticized, judged, and questioned about this new path of mine I naturally started to feel weak and doubted myself. Funny how thoughts can either make or break you. My advice to anyone feeling like a dream or goal of theres is far beyond reach, I have three words for you. GO FOR IT! Reach high, higher then ever before and realize that those negative comments that arise along the way were put there for a reason, to make you stronger both in your mind and in your heart.
It’s crazy how this brand new journey of mine is only just beginning! Within only a month I have already witnessed my blog evolve so much and I feel more confident than ever before. Words cannot explain how lucky I am to be a part of such an inspiring, awesome community of bloggers all around the world! Not only have I met some crazy talented, beautiful, real people who show nothing but pure passion in what they do and who they are but I also follow along in there everyday journeys of living a healthy, happy lifestyle. Most importantly I get to be the only person I know who to be, … ME! A young woman who discovered a passion within herself and took a chance, hoping to one day instill into my followers the amount of inspiration others have driven inside of me. If I can inspire one single person to start living a balanced, healthy, simple lifestyle then I have done something positive, amazing, and life changing, that is my ultimate goal.
So with all of that said I would like to dedicate this 1 Month Celebratory Blog Launch Birthday to a very special lady that truly inspires the heck outta me and has been my guiding light from the very beginning of “The Naturally Natalie”. Miss STEVIE ANN CLARK! 🙂 I don’t even know where to begin with you Stevie! Seriously this girl is insane… from her expertise and care behind every drawing she creates to the personal way she goes about every single project she takes on. Her emphasis and attention to detail are what stands out the most as she works with you to create exactly what you envision and most importantly she thrives on making your brand reflect YOU… and you only. Making every project unique, new, fresh and of course setting that WOW factor in to give every website what it needs and deserves. Her passion and hard-work is so inspiring to me and I feel so grateful to have her by my side as I learn and grow day by day within my blog. She has not only become my graphic designer but also she is a dear friend that will bend over backwards for me when I need her most. It’s the most wonderful thing in the world… To have someone like beautiful Stevie make your vision come to life and your dreams become a reality! I couldn’t have done it without you Stevie, from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much. Make sure to follow her (if you don’t already) —> on Instagram @ www.instagram.com/stevieannclark
