Bend but Don’t Break.

IMG_0934-1.PNG

The past month in a half has been some of the hardest days in my life. For a couple of reasons;

1) I didn’t accomplish everything I wanted too.

2) I felt like I sold myself short on several opportunities

3) It was great time for self reflection on what I could do better for this year.

It’s even harder when your best friend situation is worse than yours. “If a person can have your heart then they can truly have your back.” Because at the end of the day, it really showed me who was there when things got rough; when all the glitz and glam / lights & cameras turned off. It’s so many days when people want to show up after you’ve put in all the work- but they don’t want to go through the struggle with you. It was so many days I struggled, and I wanted to give up. However, I had an end goal in mind of who I was going it for. My parents and My unborn kids. I wanted to keep making them proud eventhough I know they are proud of me already.

And even though I work in fashion and I love it to pieces it can take a toll on you if you don’t grab it by the reigns. Promise me one thing; when you experience life bend but don’t break.

How Do You Play The Game of Life ?

I haven’t posted in a while, and I’ve been experiencing life not only have I been experiencing life. I’ve been dealt a handful of cards – some I didn’t know how to play and some I did. Anyways, it taught me a couple of things.

“You are stronger than you think”

I truly can’t stand rhetorical questions, because in all honesty, “How are you today?” Nobody truly cares! Because if you tell them the truth no holds barred. They wouldn’t want to hear from you again – I mean that is unless you guys are like ride or die friends.

“People Love to Make The Struggle Look Good On Instagram”

People love to make the struggle look good on instagram, and in all honesty. Peoples Perception is crafted from what post. You can post selfies all day and then people will think you are a egotistical narcissistic bastard. You can front all day, like you pop bottles, and ” flaunt like you are living this lavish lifestyle” when in reality. You don’t even have enough money to fill us your gas tank and you’re the person putting $5 on two.

That’s why it’s important to have your priorities in order.

My Evening Thoughts

What do you do when you have been completely transparent with someone, and given your all? When it seems like you have nothing else to give? But you keep on giving anyway? After you’ve moved out your own way, and all that’s left is time and space and the Newton’s Law of Attraction. (I think it’s Newton), but no one’s attracting. I tell you it sucks.

Fashion, Friends, and Friendship

images (1)It’s a new year, and of course what does every person day?”

“New year, New me”

Well for the most part, I have remained the same; I have continued to grow and instilled things I’ve learned over the course of last year, which have seem to be working for me. Continuously cutting off people that have handed themselves scissors and building new friendships with people that can help, build me, and mold me into the person that I am trying to be.

“Great Minds Think Alike.”

Sometime a great friendship can blossom out of simple commonalities or just a mutual respect for one another. I recently, met this guy at a Fashion networking event, and without not even knowing it we started communicating and we kept running into each other and before I realized it was like a game of Chess.

We began to exchange thoughts about not only fashion but life experiences and love as well. It was like who was gonna make the next move, and when you do you better come correct  or c h e c k m a t e.

Sometimes, you have to always have to think before you speak. Think before you start to entertain small minds, because people love to get reactions and never let your appearance dictate how you feel. (never look like your situation) Because someone is always watching.

The Lady Bug

As much as I wanted to post all weekend. I really struggled. I caught a cold from somebody or somewhere and I got really sick as I knew I would. I’m one of those people that hardly gets sick, and when I do. I cough up a lung or two.

Plus, it’s the first time me getting sick away from my parents. I had to put on my big girl bloomers, and really pull it together. I was a huge mess. You guys don’t even want know what I sounded like. (If you can only me at the age of 4 calling my grandma & scaring her when I was sick – this was just as worst.)

As much as I wanted to stay and lay in the bed all day, and not do anything I went to the doctors looking Fashionable as ever layered up with a small fever. They gave me some meds and long story short I’m knocking this cold out like fight night. YAY!
