first off, before you call me out on it ill go ahead and confirm your accusation. yes, i stole my header from the movie The Vow. so now that we have pushed that elephant out of the room i feel like we can officially move on.
for almost a year ive known about Bangs Shoes. when i saw them i was instantly like “get on my feet.” but it wasn’t til i found out the story behind the shoe that it became more than a shoe. It wasn’t til i received my bangs family that i fell completely in love with the shoe. luckily when the creator of bangs Hannah Davis made me a bangs ambassador she put me under one of my closest friends, Sydney. Hannah will never know how big of a blessing that was. i was given then, a bangs team. a team of people from all different cities and states all coming together under something like a shoe to strive to make a difference in the world and to see the world change before our generation. knowing i have the bangs family that i do is probably the most comforting feeling in the entire world. going into it, it was just a shoe to me. now its become a huge part of me. with a shoe i can enter any conversation and end it with changing someones life because they decided to move the conversation from the shoes on my feet to the divorce they had to go through last month. i will forever #liveBANGS.
today, i was impacted. this impact may have been as small as a few words on a screen at 10:00 AM but it hit me like a car going a million miles a minute. my impact came from a girl i met named Jordan in august on my way to Destin, Florida. Jordan hates sending me videos of herself talking and for that i will never understand. she has a huge drive for her sport, her family, and her education. she lives a life she would want if she were someone else. she texted me this morning and asked me why i took down my blog link off of my instagram. She was quick and straight to the point by saying, “why did you take your link down to your blog? did you stop writing?” my response went something along the lines of, “i didn’t think anyone was reading, but apparently i was wrong.” she came back to say “really wrong, i did.” so thank you Jordan, for impacting me. you made September 24th 2015 a day i wanted to write about. and just for you, i put my link back up. because big or small a impacting hitting you like a car going a million miles a minute is hardly nothing. i hope you have a day as good as the morning you gave me.
