A few seconds

Dear readers,

A few seconds; that's all it takes. A single moment to realize what you want to do for the rest of your life. It is a rare thing for people to do what makes them happy; sometimes, it is almost impossible. I mean think about it; there are so many other worries in life like food, shelter, money, family, the list goes on. All of that is important, don't get me wrong, but what is the point of our existence if we aren't doing what we love: what in essence makes us happy. My dad has always told me to do what i want and be who i aspire to be. He has never wanted me to be the person who wonders "what if?", nor do I want to be the person who constantly thinks back to that moment. Themoment when I had the chance to do what I love and turned my back. I believe that bitterness blackens the heart, and once that happens, it is impossible to feel joy again. It is this reason that has me finally following my heart. A few months ago I was watching one of my guilty pleasures on Bravo TV: Kell on Earth. This show follows the life of demanding, fashion Public Relations goddess Kelly Cutrone. I don't know why, but that single moment helped me realize what i wanted to do with myself. It is actually how this blog came about. You see, for a long time I thought I had too many dreams. I don't know why, but I only thought that one of these dreams could be my reality, but then I realized that was a ridiculous notion. I mean, why can't I do it all? Why can't I intern at a magazine, and coordinate runway shows, and write fashion articles, and own my own store. It was that moment that I realized that I could do anything and everything in the fashion world and still be happy. So, to all me readers out there who are fashionistas, I implore you to follow your heart. Don't listen to the people who tell you that you can't make it in this industry because they are wrong. Do what you love because that is what will give you the greatest joy.
