Recently a lot has been said, read, heard, learnt. Most in which has made me think about what it is I am doing with my life. My hope is that anyone that ever reads my blog can find something to relate too. I have no intention of funnelling the garbage that flows from my mouth on to your devices.
I recently met someone that had a very interesting perspective on life. Well, I wouldn't say life exactly, but she said something very interesting to me about passion. That I can truly say has changed the way I look to the future and about life. She said :
"I realized that no matter what I do, I am going to dislike it at least a little bit. Nothing is ever going to be perfect. I will never have that magical feeling that I am waiting for."
I know I heard this like a couple of days ago so of course it is fresh in my mind and I am still thinking about it to this day. The point that I wanted to make is that nothing is ever perfect. I realized that throughout my life I have always had this romanticized ideal of what finding your passion would be like. That when you find what you are supposed to be doing, passion was going to hit you like a train. You would wake up, and all you would want to do is this thing, this beloved passion of yours. For me that is fashion...
Don't get me wrong that has changed for me TOOOOO MANY TIMES throughout my lifetime. Now I know that I belong in fashion, I am just not too sure what exactly what I should be doing. Though my heart right now is set on being a designer and creative director. I thought this was going to mean you would find me glued to my sewing machine, living in fabric stores and sleeping in the studio. But here I am, having just recently completed my first dress (seen above). Again, not to undermine what I have done, and to say this is the only thing I've ever made would be a lie. And to say I'm not always thinking about fashion would also be an exaggeration.
The thing is, is though perfection is overrated and we all know that life is hard and nothing is perfect. We can't help but strive for it, and this is a reminder to as they say
"Hope for the best, but expect the worst"
