These illustrations were inspired by Wendy, a woman who blogs about her healthy lifestyle and everything she loves. It's very inspirational! Woke up feeling grrrrreeeeaaaat today! I'm in the middle of another detox and last night I went to bed irritated and knew I had to turn that all around this morning.. and it worked :) People I love around me are constantly trying to get me to break out of my shell, and to just go for something - find a solid career to set me up for the rest of my life. It's great and all that I have their support, and in the right time, things will fall into place. So far, it's been fun!
I think I'm decided on not going back to corporate jobs any time soon. The fashion world can be.. greedy and ruthless. This article I read pretty much solidified my decision. I'm definitely in the process of figuring out my options and going for them, but my insecurities at the moment hold me back because I always think - like everyone else that, "I'm not good enough". I can dance, but I'm no professional. I can do yoga, but I'm not a pro. I can model... (psh yea right! Sometimes..) I can draw and illustrate, but I'm not a fine artist like the others! So, just things.. things I wish I was better at.
And even though I know this, I have to keep reminding myself to stop comparing myself to others because then I would just lose my whole purpose. And then whatever I'd be doing wouldn't be any fun anymore.. I'm happy at what I've done and accomplished and I'm pretty proud of myself. I'm excited to move forward, try new things, and most importantly -stay motivated. Being the best doesn't prove anything (ya know!), it's being the best you can be. And that sorta thing takes commitment, love, dedication, discipline, and patience. And people will notice, and will want the same thing too. It's also a plus when you have supportive loving people around you who believe in the same things as you do too :)
