Letter From Founder & Editor Leslie

Hello and welcome to Bravenezz!

I wanted to officially start this new phase of my blog with this first post. It is not my first time posting a blog post. Bravenezz originally began in the year 2014. I blogged for a couple of years after that life happened, got busy, and had writer’s block. I am sure many writers have gone through this at some point in their lives. When this year began, I was determined to start writing and blogging again, but I kept putting it off. I have a demanding job in human resources. Also, my anxiety and the life events that I have been through made me distance myself from what I enjoy.

Why now, when the year is almost over? I feel like I have so much to share that can help someone else who might be experiencing the same things I have experienced. I love writing as a form of therapy being someone who deals with anxiety this is very helpful for me. Writing also lets me express myself and what I enjoy. I love fashion, beauty, and home decor. Plants are seriously my thing; they are my favorite home decor items.

Another big reason is that I feel like I gave up on a dream, and that feeling has been nagging me for years since I stopped writing. I felt like a piece of me was missing. I want to show my small community of readers that it’s never too late to follow your dreams. Life will always have obstacles, but we must fight through them. I also want my babies and niece in heaven to feel proud of me for fulfilling this dream and keeping it going this time.

This time, I wanted to start from scratch—from zero! So bear with me as I fill this space with great topics that will bring you confidence, inspiration, advice, or a smile. Also, if you read any posts here and are curious to learn more, I can write follow-ups for you; just let me know in the comments. I will post every Monday and Thursday for now since I have a demanding full-time job. I hope you follow me through this journey, and I hope I can make a difference in this small community through my writing.

Thank you for reading. Have a great week ahead!

Love Leslie
