Are you a whimsy soul? If you’ve been a long-time reader, you’ve probably asked yourself “What is exactly a whimsy soul?”
I started Whimsy Soul a couple of years ago for many reasons. After moving across the country, I needed a new creative outlet, something stable I could pour myself into every day. I also wanted a platform to share inspiration for others in the form of photographs and stories. See, I grew up in the Midwest and consider myself to be a very average woman. I wear a size 10, I have a cat, I went to a good college, but not a great one. I’m 25 years old and I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. I’m pretty average. And I realized a lot of you think you are also average.
But the thing, you really aren’t. And I’m not either…. I’m a whimsy soul.
You’re a whimsy soul if you prefer flowy tops and dresses over tight bodycon deathtraps.
You’re a whimsy soul if you have crazy stupid wonderful dreams that you chase every day.
You’re a whimsy soul if you pick pizza over salad.
You’re a whimsy soul if someone has told you that you can’t wear certain types of clothes based on your body type/hair type/skin type and you said FUCK IT HATERS and rocked it anyways.
You’re a whimsy soul if you have this relentless wanderlust.
You’re a whimsy soul if you pet every dog on the street like a creeper.
You’re a whimsy soul if you didn’t fit in during high school.
You’re a whimsy soul if you believe the world is bigger than you are.
Being a whimsy soul, to me, means embracing yourself truly. I know there are a lot of other girls like me out there who has spent their whole life being told that only the pretty/rich/talented/lucky people make it, but it’s important to remember this one question: Why not you?
I’ve fallen in love with using Whimsy Soul as a way to inspire women to love themselves and to explore this world. Life is so much bigger than your tiny bubble and I hope this blog helps you feel inspired.
