Everyone has a story to tell. This is the space where I share mine.
Welcome to Stories by Suddreth, my name is Key!
I’m 26 years young and currently residing in Concord, NC (sometimes I just say I’m from Charlotte). My husband and I are newly married as of September 29th, 2019, and we have two adopted kittens. Little Grae (Graeson) and Ki (Kiyan, sounds like “cayenne”) are basically our children for right now!
Growing up, I was incredibly active and heavily involved in creative activities. Dancing, recreationally and competitively, was my life and passion for several years. Once my time as a dancer ended in 2012, unfortunately, so did my level of activity and creativity altogether. I ended up gaining a lot of weight and struggled throughout college because I lacked passion and didn’t know my purpose.
I began watching a lot of YouTube in 2014, as I had to take a semester off to wait for my acceptance into nursing school. It was then that I fell in love with the creativity that can be found in social media. Deep down, I knew that becoming a creator was exactly what I wanted to pursue. However, I was incredibly scared to. I’ve pretty much had this ongoing battle with fear all my life, and for so long, I’d let it win. But in 2016, I started my channel and in 2018, I created this blog.
Some of you may know that my blog journey began in the niche of fashion. And while that was a fun place for it to start, I eventually realized that it wasn’t where it would continue. Being 26, I was tired of the level of self-esteem and confidence that I lacked, tired of the continued weight gain, and tired of letting fear have so much control in my life.
In February 2020, I began a long-awaited weight loss journey. I’ve fallen in love with working out and seeing how beneficial it is to my entire well-being. I have learned that taking care of my physical health is also such a great blessing for my mental health. Overall, making fitness a part of my lifestyle has been incredibly life-changing. And now there’s so much that I’ve learned along the way that I really want to share to help change and improve the lives of others. I’ve discovered such an excitement and passion for health and fitness that I never ever thought would’ve existed.
So from a fashion blog to a fitness and lifestyle blog, I’m so glad that this is where I’ve landed. By sharing my stories and guidance, I’m so excited to help others improve their quality of life, too!
