Life could be a big surprise. A couple of days ago some people contacted me, saying how I inspired them to dream big and take a leap of faith and follow their journey, from that moment I had a huge smile on my face. I couldn’t believe how some people look up to me. June 2012 I wrote a message saying that I am ready to move on good. Six years later, my message was answered. It was insane I did not even remember if I said that. The 17th of June 2018, the message appeared on Facebook. That’s when I realize God knew in my heart what I wanted.
I know Florida has been my home my whole life, but I know something was missing from my life, even if I had to start all over again, I knew in my heart and soul it was the right thing to do. This year I was brave enough to make that big move by following my heart and my dreams. I did not have any second thought because I know it was time to start a new chapter in my life. I honestly can say I am excited about my new journey. It is important to make a list of things that you want to do in life. Believe in the process one day it will come true.
Last night my long-time childhood friend called me, saying how much his daughter, and I change his life. It is exciting news; he is going to have the grand opening of his new business name after his daughter. I was happy because he was inspired by me. Little by little I have learned that anything I want to do or make in life will happen if I just believe in myself and let faith take over.
This sounds crazy most of the time when I need some motivation, and inspiration I would go somewhere that is quiet. I didn’t even know if New York has a place that called Battery Park, but New York is not a small state, so many places to explore. It was interested when some ladies were asking me where did I get the outfit I have on; I told them I sew the whole outfit I am wearing. I started telling them that fashion helps me see who I am and how to love myself. It’s a way for me to describe how my life is precious to me, how I was created to stand out and be different from everyone else. I must say it took me years to realize how important my life was. After being hurt by so many people including families, classmates, allies, and ex-boyfriends. That’s when it hit me I owe it to myself I need to be strong don’t worry about what people, say or do to me. It comes to my attention people say or does bad things to others because they are miserable and unhappy.
My creation has challenged me in so many ways I never think that would take place. With my style and design, I learn to communicate, to have confidence, challenge, strength, weakness, motivation, and most importantly fashion has taught me not to be afraid to show my creative personality and my style of fashion. It sounds crazy, but I like when people often ask me why I am so interested in fashion. I am so glad that day I went to the park. It’s funny I was supposed to go to a fashion show that day, but my brain took me somewhere else. I think I was so supposed to help the young ladies that day. Therefore, it was worth it to be at Battery Park that day.
