Let's Get to Know Each Other
Hi there and welcome to the VoiceBox blog! VoiceBox is a company centered around encouraging women to strain their vocal chords and fight for equality in our society. I wanted to create a place where I can talk about anything from my list of favorite movies to why there needs to be peace and equality in our current political state.
Running an Instagram is fun and a great way to connect with people from all over the world, but to be quite honest, it's not as fulfilling as you may think. On the other hand, you might not think it's fulfilling at all and in that case you already agree with me. Let's be real, the world is a very judgmental place. The thought of creating a blog where I would share my own opinions and ideas, with the 100% chance of some people hating them and letting me know about it, made me shutter. For a long time I have lived in fear of being judged or being told I was wrong and because of that I have stifled my creativity. 2018 is the year where we all need to stand up, fight for what we believe in and stop caring what other people think! With that being said, I have clicked "save and publish" and can now call myself a blogger and social activist. Let's do this! *Throws fist in the air like John Bender at the end of the Breakfast Club*
I often find myself scrolling through my Instagram feed and thinking, "wow she looks great" or "ugh why don't I look like that!" These thoughts are just thoughts, but they can have a huge impact on me, depending on what kind of day I had. I don't want to create the illusion that I'm writing this blog post while sitting on a trendy couch with the perfect outfit on. This is a judgement free zone so I feel perfectly comfortable telling you that right now I look like a haggard sloth. I'm sitting in my sweatpants, my hair is in a deteriorating messy bun and the day is slowly dwindling down. The sun is starting to set and the faint orange rays are peaking through the huge tree in my backyard. I'm freezing (it's 50 degrees outside but I live in Los Angeles and can't handle anything below 70) and I desperately want to eat my weight in chocolate. Those two things don't have anything to do with each other, I'm just hungry. This is starting to sound like a "relatable teen" post so I'm going to stop it there, but you get the picture. I'm looking a bit like a stale cookie and I'm not afraid to say it.
When I think of my perfect Saturday afternoon it involves my best friend and I listening to music and talking about topics from A-Z. When I think about Voicebox, I think of the same thing. My hope for this blog, brand and community is for it to be one big peace circle where everyone can share their feelings and ideas. My goal for this blog and brand is for it to be a place anyone can click on and feel welcomed, inspired and informed.
Have any blog suggestions for me? Leave them in the comments down below! I would love to hear from you!
