So, this past weekend has been relatively rich in experience and overloaded with excitement for me. I’ve attended New York Fashion Week for the first time and, obviously, I’ve given you a glimpse of the shows I was invited to in my previous post. You can read all about it here… if you haven’t before. 😉 If you do follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve probably seen more pics and videos there that were captured in honor of the event.
I miss NYC already! The city that never sleeps, as they call it, sure knows how to awaken the goal digger in me. I came back exhausted, but evermore inspired, driven and ready to work even harder for the things I want.
There’s nothing more powerful than a dream! And we all know that pursing your dream can be hard work; If there’s anything that can guide us on our journey and keep us motivated and on track to realize it, why not?! I say do them frequently and unapologetically.
And if you don’t know what your passion, your dream or your purpose is yet… relax! It’s out there. All you need to do is to discover it.
Don’t be afraid to go ahead and explore. I would say look around; allow yourself to dream about numerous things. Think about the things that inspire you, and what makes you happy!
Listen to your heart and follow the call of your soul and when you do discover your purpose or your dream, declare it and make it your own. Embrace it and work for it!
Get out there and make connections. Listen and learn. Ask questions! Let the stories, success, and triumphs of fellow dreamers inspire you. Their stories may transform your idea and take your vision into a dream fully realized.
You see, you can’t realize your dream without putting tremendous work in it! You have to work at it and work for it. The dream may be free, but the hustle is not! Work hard and pray harder; Do the things that will awake the passion in you. Conferences, seminars, books, mentors… there are so many dreams-booster out there to help you evolve into the person you want to become.
Of course there are a lot of naysayers out there, but there are also those who have a shared interest in your dream and can help you stay on track… mentors, coaches, professional advisors and even experienced friends.
Make yourself accountable to those; and those who doubt you? Simple: Prove them wrong. Let your success speak to them. They are watching, and guess what? you must just spark someone else to begin their own journey.
Now, as simple as this blue one sleeve sheer top over this white applique look may be, it has gotten me lots of compliments the day I wore it! And you know why? it may have been the outfit, but it may also have been the confident I exhumed while trotting around. Yes, ladies, let your confidence be your best accessories!
