We often hear about rebranding. At what point in our lives do we start being branded. There should be an age limit that we start our brand at. Of course, I would need to rebrand from my 6-year-old self or worse, my 13-year-old self. I wish my brand started at 18, but even then it is too young. I am not the same person or even a similar person to my 18-year-old self. It is the beauty of growing up, you grow.
What is the best way to say “yeah I sucked, but now I am self-aware”? Do I make it an Instagram caption? The things I used to value most have changed. The people I valued most have shifted. There is a new requirement to treat me like an equal human to be part of my circle. Kindness to all is now a requirement and not just a suggestion.
Find Your People
I learned that I don’t want to be surrounded by people who don’t want to learn. I don’t want to be surrounded by people who don’t want to better themselves. There is always room for improvement. Now that I have this new information, I want to break my mold. I want to start over. I am trying to reevaluate all decisions I once made.
There are people who have passed through my life who maybe could’ve had a bigger impact. As part of my growing, do I give them another chance or just be better when I meet new people? If you are a person from my past and you like my adult vibe, message me! Otherwise, I think I will stick to the new.

A brand can be centered around a lot of different personality traits or actions. I want mine to focus on my love for dance, ability to always be silly, and commitment to stand up for what I believe. I am also a petite woman who sometimes wears glasses and always wants to buy a new pair of shoes.
Humans are complex beings. Defining your brand and focus takes finesse and attention. For some tips on creating a social media brand, check out my Instagram reels this week.
