It's only been a few days but I feel like I've been here since forever! And I say that because I've already learned and experienced so many things!
As the title says, you just never know what can happen to you, your family, or your friends. You just never know what can happen with life, but I do feel like things happen for a reason. We can all blame the negativities on someone or something else, but what we need to focus on is how to make things better ourselves. We can't always rely on other people. We can wish and pray, but until we put the first foot forward, we can't always expect changes to occur.
A couple of months ago, I would have never expected to be where I am now. I planned studying abroad, but, I wasn't sure if it was actually going to happen but I really tried hard and made things happen.
The fact that I'm here in London is just amazing, but something even more CRAZY, and I can't believe that it's happening, is that I WILL BE GOING TO LONDON FASHION WEEK!!!!
I always admired New York's Fashion Week and I would occasionally watch the Live streams on Youtube but... I never imagined I would be going to London's Fashion Week.
My roommate, who is also the author of the blog Fashion Pop Queen, is already breaking her way through the fashion industry one step at a time and even provided me with an amazing opportunity - to attend a show!
Is this even real life?!
YES. IT IS.
Maybe it's because I'm away from family and a lot of the people that are close to me, but I've learned that sometimes, you need to step out of your box. You can't always be comfortable and you won't always be happy, but what we need to strive for is living our life to the fullest, doing things that make us happy, and also having a positive outlook on life. That doesn't mean do whatever, wherever and whenever. We also need to know control and understand that the choices we make are our responsibility, but since we have the power to make certain choices, we can change our lives.
When I look back on my old self, even if good opportunities came to my footstep, I would walk away from it because I was scared of what could happen. I kept thinking that I wouldn't be able to do certain things. But if I knew then what I know now, I would have never walked away. Whenever there is an obstacle, we need to face it with some nice eyeliner, lipstick, killer heels, and break through!!!!
The idea of attending London's Fashion Week is really scary, mainly because there are going to be people who KNOW and LIVE in the fashion industry. The cameras, the models, the audience are all frightening, but you know what, when will I ever get this sort of opportunity ever again? Sure maybe in the future if I have connections, but I DONT KNOW THE FUTURE. NOW IS ALL I KNOW. And yeah, I'm scared of being out place but I can't let this sort of opportunity pass me by. It'll a COMPLETELY new experience and I'm sure I'll learn something.
CHEERS TO STEPPING OUT OF YOUR ZONE!!!!!!
Thanks Shammara - YOU ARE THE GAME CHANGER. haha <3
