I’m Coming Out…

There’s a new me coming out
And I just had to live
And I want to give
I’m completely positive
I think this time around
I am gonna do it
Like you never do it
Like you never knew it
Oh, I’ll make it through

These are my most favorite lines in Diana Ross’s song – I’m Coming Out. Read through it and watch the DreamWorks video of Trolls below.

Let me explain why these lines are my favorite.

There’s a new me coming out
And I just had to live
And I want to give

I am coming out of my shell and mustering all my courage to finally face everyone with the the newest chapter of Neat Obsessions. My very own vlog – Neat Obsessions on YouTube

These lines pretty much capture my reasons for starting this vlog. For most of the people who really know me, I am quite shy and timid. Just like some of you, I tend to like being in the background. Not for anything else, but I guess it’s because I have always been scared that people might not like me for who I am. But in all sincerity, I just really want to share my thoughts and simply just extend a helping hand to anyone who needs one. With all the blessings I had last year, I am coming out, brave and strong (hopefully strong enough) to be closer to those who support me in my Neat journey.

I’m completely positive
I think this time around
I am gonna do it

To me, positivity is more than just thinking, saying, or doing happy things, but it is more about the realization that everything that comes out of us should make the world a better place, a world full of hope and joy. Yes, I feel sad sometimes, I feel bad, or worst I feel mad. The good thing is that I have a great support system, my husband, the rest of my family, and my friends have always been a source of positivity for me. They make sure that I don’t need to listen to the negative things life has to bring and focus on what I can do to better myself for others – something I can be proud of to my three kids when they face the same challenges in life. With that, I move on… move to another creative and hopeful year in 2019.

Like you never do it
Like you never knew it
Oh, I’ll make it through

Dear Neatropolis, ladies and gentlemen, you have never seen me in my most vulnerable, and this is it! I hope with this vulnerability, we grow together. We will make through the learnings we will both have in this new chapter of Neat Obsessions. To all those who love me and worry about me, don’t… I will be ok, I will be better, and with the help of everyone in our community, I will come out, with grace and love, much stronger for everyone. Love you all!

So to anyone out there who are like me, I hope I can inspire you to start coming out of your shell. It all starts by loving yourself. Accepting that in all the faults that we find about us, there is always something beautiful about each and everyone of us. For every mistake that we have done before, there is always hope for everyone of us to be better, stronger, and to just be you… not perfect, but always fantastic! Neat Obsessions is about finding beauty in what we already have, improve it if we can, always with a smile.

Here’s episode 1 of Neat Obsessions vlog! Enjoy a glimpse of my day. Let me know what you think about it ok?

It’s a good day, today! Stay neat everyone!

Love, Issa Reyes
