“So this blog is pretty much me coming out of the closet and you coming into my closet! “
My name is Manuela Yush, I know it’s a funny name! That’s what happens when you are Brazilian marry a Russian and cut your last name short because its difficult to pronounce! The upside is that I have no competition on google.
My main objective with this blog is to express my alter ego, I’m a finance grad and few months ago I would describe myself as a very analytical person with zero artistic inclination. Recently, I felt compelled to do some soul searching to find what my real passions are. Every time I would ask myself, what is my bliss? What am I really passionate about? What can keep me up at night? The answer was always the same: Shoes. For a long period of time I tried to fight the answer, because it did not fit my vision of who I thought I was. I really saw myself as someone with a more rational passion like extinct monkeys or something and shoes more like a necessity, plus shoes seemed way too simple of an answer and I was not happy with it. For a few months my two alter egos were in conflict and if anyone has ever gone through this, is not very pretty.
After an exhausting fight, I finally made peace with myself and I decided to accept me for who I am, as they always the simplest answer is usually the right one and mine was shoes. Fears and judgments were clouding my vision when the answer was right, literally, under my nose.
This only became clear to me after I started working on my blog, I was more in touch with myself, my passions and life became so much richer because I discovered another side of me, someone creative, artistic, passionate and that side of me was finally being nurtured.
I’m sure my journey of discovering myself is not nearly finished, since we all are very complex individuals in a perpetual state of evolution and when you think you know yourself, you evolve and become someone else, someone better always.
I hope you can all be inspired to follow your own passion, no matter what they are because life is too short not to explore what you love.
So this blog is pretty much me coming out of the closet and you coming into my closet!
