If I had to create a dictionary definition for chrysalosity, it would look something like that. It's a made-up word that describes this crazy, beautiful life better than any other. It's a combination of the words chrysalis and curiosity. (Hear me out, I'll get there!)
A chrysalis is a growth stage of a butterfly. This is where many of us ladies are at in life; we're growing into ourselves every day, without a definite point of arrival. While some may see this stage as premature, it's a place I never intend to leave. I love learning, growing, re-evaluating, and reforming. Simply put, I’m curious about life, and I never want that curiosity to die. Hence, Chrysalosity – a lifestyle blog about growing, learning, and flourishing.
As young, emerging women, it can be difficult to navigate the world in which we live. There are a lot of sources out there telling us what to do to be healthy, happy, and beautiful. We can easily fall into the trap of believing everything society tells us we need to be. Eat this. Wear this. Act like this. Talk like this. The list goes on. It's a dangerous, toxic place to be.
I want to design a blog for women to who desire to truly better themselves in a variety of ways, whether that be physical wellness, fashion inspiration, helpful life tips, or meaningful inspiration. There are so many facets to our personhood that we can grow, improve, and flourish, and I hope to provide a space for that kind of positive change.
So here's to a new beginning! Welcome to Chrysalosity, a lifestyle blog that encourages women to flourish in their own unique, beautiful way.
