What Am I So Afraid Of?

Friends I have a secret to tell you. To some of you reading this is no secret at all. I have lived the majority of my 44 years on this Earth scared. My biggest fear was what other people thought of me. Are you surprised? Some may be shocked, you see I have been known to put on a big front of being super joyous and bubbly. But deep down I would ask myself “am I being likable enough?’ “Am I trying too hard?” “Am I being funny?” “Do they like me?’ “Do I fit in?” the list could really go on, and on, and on. The reasons behind my lack of confidence and fears I will share in more detail on another blog post, I promise.

You see I have been afraid to share some pretty amazing blessings in my life for fear that others would criticize me. That I would be judged. Or even worse that they would think I was “annoying” or being “spammy” and drive them away. What I am going to share God has been putting on my heart for a very long time, but I just kept saying no or ignoring him for fear that I would lose friends and followers on my Social Media Platform. But you see God never gives up. In fact today he made sure I was listening loud and clear. My devotional today said “Do not be afraid to be different from other people. The path I have called for you to travel is exquisitely right for you. The more closely you follow My leading, the more fully I can develop your gifts. To follow Me wholeheartedly, you must relinquish your desire to please other people. However, your closeness to Me will bless others by enabling you to shine brightly in this dark world. So there you have it. God basically had to hit me over the head again to do what he wants. So now I truly have to listen.

Almost 4 years ago I started a journey that would change my life forever! And I could not be happier. I opened my Boutique. At the time it was exclusively LuLaRoe Clothing. And what a joy it was and still is. I have been able to make all kinds of wonderful friends. I have been able to bless so many charities. I have been on three cruises that I qualified for. I have traveled to so many places, that without LuLaRoe I never would have. I have gained so much confidence, and learned that I could be successful and smart. And the exciting thing is that I now have been able to add a wonderful addition to my Boutique as well with Maskcara Beauty. There is something so wonderful about also being able to share Beauty Products that will change your life.

Ok, so I know by now you are like Rya please get to your point. I will right now. God has put it on my heart so much recently that I have been selfish, and afraid. I have been keeping these blessings all to myself. I have not been sharing these amazing Business Opportunities with you all simply because I was afraid of what you all may think. But really it is not fair for me to not share. I just know there is someone out there who needs the life changing opportunity of starting their Fashion Business for only $499. (When I started it was a Five Thousand dollar investment. And I would do that again in a heartbeat.) Or maybe someone needs the life changing opportunity of starting their own Beauty Business for only $199 or $399. Heck, you could start both for less than One Thousand dollars. One college course costs more than that. My Freebird Shoe collection costs more than that. Your MacBook costs more than that.

All I can say is that I am so sorry. I apologize for being afraid to share, and keeping these blessings all to myself. I am done being afraid, and limiting the blessing this could be to you or somebody you love. One thing you should know is everything I do is with my full heart. I love and lead with a full heart I am so passionate about changing women’s lives and watching them soar! It would be such an honor to chat with any of you that might interested. Please feel free to connect with my by sending an email to styledbyrya@gmail.com . And I just want you to know, its okay to be afraid. Taking a chance can be scary. But if you do it will your full heart, passion, and lots of hustle how can you fail? Please know I am cheering for you, and want to see you be bold and shine!

Stay Beautiful, Confident and Blessed!

XO- Rya
