#MondayMotivation: Create Your Own Sunshine


  A little backstory about me and My Legendary Style… 
   My Legendary Style originally started out as a clothing line. I then wanted a blog to go with the line to show what it was like behind the scenes and following me along on my journey to becoming an established fashion designer. Then I decided to add in beauty and other types of fashion. After a while I started writing for other online publications about lifestyle and relationships. I loved writing about it so much I started incorporating all of that into this site too. I know… it was a lot! Oh, and did I mention I changed the name of the clothing line? Yeah, it became Lady Minor. Along with it came the Lady Minor blog so there was no longer a need to document my journey here. Lastly, I started a YouTube channel that I was absolutely smitten with. What can I say, I love makeup and talking to my viewers about beauty. 

   I’ve been feeling like yet again I need to change something. Or maybe I feel a need to evolve.

   Slowly but surely, I want this site to evolve into more of a community. It can no longer be about just what I want to talk about. I want more feedback and to know what you want to know about. How can I help you… the reader? I can be found all over the place on line and now it’s time to make it all mesh together and create a seamless (hopefully seamless) transition to the next stage to reflect more of what I believe in and that’s women empowerment. 

   I know some people are bothered by the fact that some entrepreneurs like to say, “I’m my own brand”. They find it pretentious I guess but it is true… I am my own brand and I am glad I have finally realized that. Over the last year I have delved deeper than I ever have in learning about branding and rebranding. I’ve taken classes and challenges (maybe I’ll talk more about it another time) that made me really think about myself, my career path, my goals and face my fears. I lost a lot of sleep but came out a better entrepreneur because of it. I went to bed late and woke up early because I was full of so much excitement! Excited because… A change is coming. 

   So, for this Monday Motivation I want you to look within yourself and ask… Am I happy? What do I want to change? Then go do it. Do whatever is going to make you happy. Change whatever you need to change to evolve into who you want to be and do what you want to do. People may look at you funny or whisper behind your back, but you don’t need to worry about what other people think. You may change your mind 20 times before you decide what you really want to do. It’s going to be challenging and some days will be a little gloomy but keep pushing a remember…
Some days you just have to create your own sunshine. – Sam Sundquist
