I’m wearing a black crochet piece with a deep radiant emerald green maxi skirt (designed by me) for today’s look; creating a dark but rich feel.
Emerald, ‘an inspiring and uplifting color suggesting abundance and wealth in all its forms, from material wellbeing, to emotional wellbeing to creative ideas.’
I want to vibe like the emerald green. I want to bring it’s lively, inspiring and uplifting characteristics with this journey I’m embarking on.
It’s been a rollercoaster ride as of lately and I’m not talking about theme parks.
It’s tough sometimes to choose a lifestyle with unpaved roads, where the bumps and curves you come across are unexpected and unknown. I have tremendous respect for creators/artists/entrepreneurs, who have committed 110% and endure the highs and lows of the rollercoaster ride; who risk and choose passion over steady salary and late night creations over sleep.
I was so close to choosing that 9-5 routine until ‘that someone♡‘ convinced me “Don’t, don’t do it. I believe in you. I believe in your talent and passion. I believe you should give it a chance”. So I finally decided to steer away, away from that already ‘paved path’ and actually give my ‘talent’ a respectable chance; not that 9-5 – not for something I won’t love and enjoy. I will give myself a chance to explore my capabilities in what I love.
I have been more consistent; I have been making progress…maybe slowly but still progressing. And in a matter of time, I hope I will too believe in myself as much as ‘you’ believe in me.
Not better than anyone else, I’m just like everyone else. Trying to continuously grow and learn and become a better version of myself.
Shouts to Derek Hui Photography, who’s also embarking on this journey, paving his own way to success.
