Hey everyone! GRRRL Clothing is nothing without you. The history of this amazing brand starts with your personal GRRRL story! I’m Kicking off this new year with some GRRRL Talk and Maddie Harr’s story!
SPUNKY: How did you discover GRRRL?
MADDIE: I was introduced to GRRRL by one of my very best friends, Beth. She was at GRRRL Live and attended the OG event in 2017. She reached out to me as she knew I had been struggling with my self esteem and self love for a VERY long time.
SPUNKY: What made you want to become part of this movement?
MADDIE: I’ll be honest, I’m a sucker for fun clothing. I was already hooked from the get go hah! What’s kept me around and deepening my love for GRRRL has to be the message and the community. I’ve never been a part of something where I feel completely comfortable baring the emotional scars I carried and I feel that I can with GRRRL. It’s truly changed my outlook in so many things.
SPUNKY:What was the first thing you wore?
MADDIE: The OG unicorn next levels and the Guerilla GRRRL muscle tee!
SPUNKY:How did finding GRRRL change your life?
MADDIE: GRRRL came into my life during a very difficult time. My mom has just passed away from a short and completely unexpected battle with lung cancer. My mom had been my biggest cheerleader and I felt a huge hole in my life. I have Major Depressive Disorder, and I could feel myself going down a dark road. I felt so lost. But then GRRRL came along and suddenly I was wanting to try new things again! I had always wanted to try CrossFit and powerlifting, but I gained a lot of weight since my mom’s illness. I didn’t think I could do it. Seeing GRRRLs of all shapes and sizes gave me the confidence I needed to give it a shot. As a result, I now have some of the best friends I could have ever asked for and my self esteem is up. For the first time in a long time, I’m excited to live. I don’t think I would still be here without the support I received from my fellow GRRRLS.
SPUNKY:What would you say to other women out there right now, what do you think they need to hear?
MADDIE: You are enough. You’re not too much or too little, you are just right. Breathe. Your sisters are here and they will help you navigate this journey.
That says it all! My heart is full of GRRRL love and all the feels!
