We are all born to do..."something". Figuring out that "something" is all part of the journey. Most anyone can do what ever they put their mind to, but some people just have th special something, a natural talent and a gift for what they're meant to do. This is why our parents, teachers and mentors tell us to follow our dreams.
Junior high is when I really started to take an interest in fashion and what I wore. I would ask my mom to make me a new outfit for every school dance...and so began my obsession with "What am I going to wear?"
I now make all my own clothes for any special occasion coming up in my own life. My wedding for example. I made my dress and basically everything else I possibly could. Now that I am a new mom, I LOVE dressing my daughter in fun outfits everyday too.
This past fall I found some much needed inspiration and re-awakening when I won a bootcamp session. In those short 6 weeks, I finally found the much needed motivation to focus my creativity on developing and defining my business.
"Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself."
These words have been resonating in my mind and have opened my eyes to the possibilities ahead of me.
I've been struggling to create an identity for my business and define what I do, until this past week. "Be your brand, put yourself into your business." Part of my business is to encourage clients to be themselves, be unique, think outside the box.
But I haven't been true to myself and who I've always been. I've been focusing on what others want and what they like.
So who am I?
I am a quiet person and I'm terrible at small talk. My mind is always bustling with ideas, creations and deigns. I am honest, sometime too much so. I am strong, determined and resourceful. I am passionate about the world around me and would love to travel the globe and photograph every inch of it. I love all things unique, whimsical, vintage, and untradtional.
After many years of just freelancing in my passions, I am now taking steps to make my dreams a reality. The time has come to stop trying to find myself and start creating myself.
