Hi! I’m Nimia…
And this is my blog.
In here I’m sharing true stories, thoughts and experiences that will be very vulnerable, funny or just plain weird, but I hope you can follow along and see where this takes us. Along the way you’re welcome to reach out. Have advice for me? I’d love to hear it. Need to ask me anything or just need a simple prayer? Let me know! Even if it’s just for hellos, I’m here.
Hey there, Baton Rouge Insiders and fellow dreamers. I’m dropping in to encourage you with the amazing stories of a few of my favorite local brands. It’s inspiring to see how far some local dreamers have reached. I’m not talking about a local corporation that has hundreds of employees. I am talking about some hard-working, do it themselves, momma owned local businesses, who I had personally seen work their hearts out...even when it wasn’t easy. I personally know them and their hustle.
Look I know that travel isn’t for everyone but I feel like personally I was born to travel. I loved it from the very beginning. I know it might be thinking that’s probably because I’ve had it good when I traveled. But back when I took my first trips, it was not glamorous, not even just a bit.
I dreamed of one day owning a business that I could use to make an impact on other's lives and to support and empower women. I grew up in a culture that gender inequality was so dominant. Add having a mother who suffered from a lack of financial independence and being raised with a dad who was a gifted entrepreneur, was like the perfect storm to birth a dream that seemed too big for little me…
Truly loving someone is hard but sometimes it is harder to let love in. I swear I am a mess, I find it easier to feel love and compassion for people in the street begging than letting close people around me love me. The worst part is you tend to hurt the people that are closest to you. You might not have this problem, but for those who struggle with this kind of love, I feel you.
So there are many types of loves, and we will talk about four of the "Loves" that I have struggled with the most in this Love Series, maybe you relate.
First love on this list LOVE YOUR SELF. No, I don't mean selfish, "ME, ME, only ME" love but learning to know yourself and love every part of yourself. Why? Because you only have you. If we had the option, I would have probably been someone else back in the days I didn't love myself enough, but apparently, we can't.
Come One, Come All
