Ever since I was a child, I was always expected to follow a designated path that was chosen for me. One with no room for growth, exploration, self discovery or questions and because I was afraid of the unknown, this was the way of life I too had chosen for myself. A life of pleasing everyone else around me while ignoring my own physical, emotional and psychological needs which left me feeling drained, unhappy and incomplete.
I decided to start Brunch With Linda as a creative outlet to share my passion for style, beauty, mind-body wellness and motherhood. I also wanted to have a space where I can talk about my journey to finding the spark inside of me that was buried by toxic behavior, patterns, habits and words.
For the longest time, I was so frustrated with my life and I blamed everyone else around me about how I felt and how I viewed myself. After some painfully honest moments in the past couple of years, I realized that only I can change how I feel about who I am and create the life of my dreams. So, I’m slowly learning to take my life back, own it and live as authentically as I can. Along the way, I hope to encourage other millennial women to embrace their scars and seek the beauty that is inside of them.
This blog is dedicated to the girl I was and the woman I am becoming. I hope you enjoy the stories I have to share and learn from them.
PS: One thing that keeps me going is the daily reminder and affirmations that I always read and meditate upon. So if you’d love to share in this morning ritual with me, sign up below and I will share it with you too.
