[…] the best way to spell love is T-I-M-E.— Rick Warren.
Offering dydyxoxo.com to the internets was long overdue. What was I waiting for? All of my 20s have been dedicated to please society. I checked every box I could, while waiting for hapiness to take place. But it didn’t. « Why am I not happy ? », I would ask myself. And instead of reflecting, I started to do what I know
best : work, work, work. Did I stuck that Rihanna song in your head? Good.
Cause that’s exactly what I lived for… arghhh… – How long has it been?
For the past 15 years, I said it. Yep took me all this time to finally realize
the path I was taking was going to lead to no good.
Of course I tried to find ways to make it more barable. To balance the urge to release my creativity, I joined a sewing club, created my youtube channel, tried to learn to play guitar etc… every chance I got: mainly during the week-end – TGIF Yayyy! And that was if I wasn’t too hungover from the night before (I was in my 20s remember, no judgement please).
But I was studying at a business school (HEC Montreal), and I got caught up in the matrix. I graduated, completed my CPA (yeah I’m an accountant haha! worked 7+ years as a financial analyst). Don’t get me wrong, I have zero regret. Actually, I am more than grateful to have had access to such a great education. And am very well aware, that a lot of people do not have this opportunity. I’ve learned so much about myself, hard work, being a go getter, self discipline etc… The only problem is, just because you’re good at something, doesn’t mean it is meant for you. That’s what I’ve come to realize.
After years of working at a corporate job, I felt empty and lost. The secret garden I created through Youtube, painting, trying to learn to play guitar during the week-end, while exhausted… Just didn’t cut it anymore. And the existential questions started to be unbarable (I know corny). Depression and anxiey were diagnosed (way too late in my opinion, but I didn’t even know the way I felt wasn’t nomal…). If you’ve never been through it, God bless you. But if you have, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
Now what? Well, I’m not sure, but what I do know is that God put a seed in my heart a long time ago. I was just a kid when I had this total conviction that he existed. And frankly, if it wasn’t for him, I most likely wouldn’t be writing this post today. I am now choosing to live with purpose and do things intentionally, instead of living like a robot on auto-pilot (that’s not life…). Learning to accept the woman I am is difficult, because I don’t really fit in… any of this society’s mold. Which can create a lonely feeling at times… But that too I can master.
“I like fashion, always have, and it doesn’t make me a superficial woman.” Dydy xoxo
To sum it up : My name is Wendy, but you can call me Dydy. I like fashion, always have, and it doesn’t make me a superficial woman. I love skincare and pampering myself (*you are worth it*, l’Oréal. Not sponsored lol). I have a very creative mind, and a lot to share. I care about people, and their well-being, thus this blog. Simplicity is a necessity for me. Currently transitionning to a more minimalist lifestyle. Decluttering my mind, thoughts, space to allow better things to find their place. My purpose in life, is to use my gifts to their full potentials ! And help others do the same, that’s it. That was a lot of me, myself and I. But I thought it was important for you to know who’s behind these posts. And if you relate to any of what I mentionned, I invite you to stick around and start this new journey with me.
