Motivation Monday: Never Give Up

Motivation Monday: Never Give Up – If there’s one thing I want to do through this blog, it’s to motivate and inspire people…..

Don’t get me wrong – I love writing my beauty product reviews and sharing my outfit posts with you all however sometimes I feel the need to write more so I’m hoping I’ll be able to keep this up every week with my ‘Motivation Monday’ posts!

Motivation Monday – Never Give Up

This is something that I wish everyone could live by – never give up!

When I started working as a makeup artist, people didn’t consider it as a real job but it’s what I wanted do!

I worked hard, got as much experience as I could to build my portfolio and slowly the work started rolling in…..I got offered work on photoshoots, theatre and even worked abroad on a TV show!

I loved it but over time I realised that the drive and love I had for the job started to fade, when that happens you need to get out before you eventually hate what you loved.

Out of the blue, I was sat at home and I thought it would be a good idea to write a blog about beauty products and reviews – I’d just bought a face cream which was slightly pricey but smelt terrible and that’s how I fell into the world of blogging! (Some things are just meant to be)

My beauty blog quickly turned into a fashion and beauty blog, thanks to all you wonderful readers requesting to see more outfits! 🙂

To sum up, what I really want to say is that you should never give up, we go through times that are difficult but if I’d listened to all those people that told me to get a ‘normal job‘ I wouldn’t have even worked in make-up, I wouldn’t have gained experience and I wouldn’t be sat here writing this right now.

Never give up on what you love, if you have drive, determination and patience, everything will work out – never let anyone tell you otherwise!

So, there’s my first Monday Motivation post – I’d love to hear some of your stories so please comment below! 🙂

    Love a good inspirational and motivation post. I was the same in the sense that I studied Film and Television and no one in my family had ever gone down that route at all so it was sort of a foreign concept. I think after a while people get used to things like that, it can just take them a little time (or a lot sometimes!) to get on board.

      Thank you so much hun!! It’s so lovely to hear other people sharing their stories too and it’s so lovely to see that you also did what you wanted and chased your dreams, just because something is different doesn’t mean it’s not right! 🙂 xxx

    So many people land their dream job or find themselves exactly where they always wanted to be in the most unconventional ways. It hardly every happens the traditional route these days. Blogging certainly offers a lot of people opportunities that they probably never would have thought possible a couple years ago and now it’s a rapidly growing industry. I’m happy you neglected the naysayers and went after your dreams!

      Thank you so much for your lovely comment, it’s true – things are much more difficult these days and it seems more people stop you from doing what you love! If this post helps one person feel better, then it makes everything worthwhile! 🙂 xxx

    That’s a nice kind of post and great words. For me the blog is the best example to “never give up”, cause it can be so hard and discouraging.
    Have a good week x

    I always live with this quote Leila…. We all need to face our fears and strive for the best! Life is not a bed of roses… we have to fight for what we want and never give up on our dreams… no matter how hard it may sound, its always worth giving it a chance!
    Starting a blog was one thing i was always afraid of! Hence why i procastinated so much! But during that time i couldnt stop thinking about it! As the say… If you can`t stop thinking about it, then work for it! And the rest is history…
    So far it has been the best decision ever! And i`m glad i took the step and had the faith to start doing what i love!
    I always look foward to reading your posts!

    This is brilliant! I am starting to lose interest in my day job and I feel incredibly lost because I don’t know what it is I’d be doing otherwise. I am using blogging as a way for me to discover what it is I want out of a career and what that career will be in the future. I am doing it MY way and not giving up finding something that makes me want to get out of bed each day. This is truly the motivation I needed to continue what I am doing, so thank you!
