Hi. I’m Brooke. I work in advertising as a planner/strategist in New York City. I’m also a writer, makeup artist, and defunct international soap opera actress. (I once appeared in a soap that only showed in Sweden and South Africa. Long story.)
This blog has been a long time coming. I’ve held back from doing the things I really wanted to do in life for so many years, for many different reasons, but he past year has been one of transformation for me. Now that I’ve gotten my confidence and courage back, I really want to help others do the same. This blog started a few months ago because I was looking for a place to write and to show off my skills to potential employers (since I was looking for an account planning job at the time.) Check out my very first post: http://tatteredandcomplete.wordpress.com/2010/10/27/im-ready-now
But now, it’s become a place for me to tell my stories and give advice from a human and honest point of view in order to help inspire others (and myself) towards our greatest potential.
The name of the blog is “Tattered and Complete.” It’s a journal for the “perfectly torn.” Basically, it’s meant to show that while we’re all a little f’ed up, we are all perfect and complete just as we are. And since we all have the same issues, the same emotions … there is really no point in letting anything stand in the way of what makes us fulfilled and happy.
Make sense? If so, please join me on this journey.
Much love, -Brooke
