Staying In My Own Lane- A New Beginning For Sasha Shantel: The Blogger

Looking back on my journey, it’s been quite the rollercoaster. Ever since my teenage years, I’ve been juggling a multitude of roles—modeling gigs, pageant competitions, late-night study sessions, and diving headfirst into the world of entrepreneurship. Now, at the ripe age of 39, I find myself pausing to take stock of the winding path I’ve traversed.

It’s impossible to ignore the setbacks I’ve encountered along the way. Each stumble, each roadblock has tested my resolve. But you know what? I’ve managed to pick myself up, dust off the setbacks, and come back even stronger.

Now, let’s talk about the digital landscape, particularly the realm of social media. Despite pouring years of effort into building my online presence, I’ve hit a plateau. The partnerships and opportunities I’ve been hoping for just haven’t materialised. It’s forced me to rethink my game plan.

In the midst of this reflection, I’ve come to a profound realisation: I’ve been chasing someone else’s dream, not my own. Instead of trying to squeeze into a predefined mold, I need to embrace my true self and what I’m genuinely passionate about.

So, here’s the pivot: I’m stepping away from the pursuit of influencer status. Instead, I’m focusing on cultivating my own platform—a space that’s uniquely mine. A place where I can share my love for fashion, lifestyle, and the written word in a way that feels authentic.

From this point forward, you can call me Sasha Shantel—the fashion aficionado, the lifestyle enthusiast, the wordsmith extraordinaire. My commitment? To deliver content that’s not only engaging but also relatable, honest, and just a tad bit quirky.

Sure, it might feel like I’m hitting the reset button. But armed with the wisdom gained from years of experience, I’m ready to transform into something truly remarkable.

So, who’s with me on this journey? Let’s strap in, hold on tight, and embark on this adventure together. Because when we combine our passions with a dash of authenticity, there’s no limit to what we can achieve.

How You Can Start Introducing the Idea of a Caretaker to Your Elderly Parent

It can be a bit scary to think about, but there’s going to come a time when, when it comes to creating a healthier lifestyle for your family, a third party might need to just step in. This is especially true when your parents get to a certain age. With that said, as our loved ones age, the need for additional support may arise, and introducing the idea of a caregiver can be a sensitive matter. You’ve probably seen it in plenty of shows and movies (like The Sopranos) where the elderly parent just outright rejects the help.
