If you ask me what’s my weakness/fear, I would say writing/speaking English. My family and siblings often make jokes about me saying “Sumasakit ulo ko sa English mo” or asking me all the time why I’m not good at speaking. I used to answer them, “Bakit? Kasalanan ba yon!?” 😂
It's been 2 years now that my blog, a
@helloislandmama, started to work with various brands, and I always feel thankful to God for giving this blogging opportunity to me. This allows me to keep using the skills God gave me, even after pausing my career as an artist to be a stay-at-home mom for my children. I’ve been blogging ever since I was in school, but it was usually only photos since I was afraid to write in English and be criticized by others. But when I became a mom, I realized I don't want this fear to control me and stop me for sharing some creative ideas and experiences as a mother. So instead, I found a way to start blogging by asking my husband Brent to help me out with my English #supportivehusband. Eventually, I was able to get additional help from others in editing my blog.. Now I’ve had the opportunity to work with great companies that I never imagined I would be able to work with. My blog still isn’t that big, but I feel content with the opportunities God has given me and the people He has put in my life to help me.
I don’t mean for this caption to be so long, but if you are like I was and are afraid of people judging your speaking and writing, I encourage you to face your fear and try to do it! Ask for help from others, pray, and if nothing else, just laugh about it 😊
How about you? What’s a weakness or fear that you overcame to achieve something in life?
