It's late at night here in Joburg. I just had dinner, al fresco, with friends and family and I am still outside, sipping on a glass of chardonnay and thinking about the crazy path that has been my life thus far, as one does come the new year...
I never imagined that I would be blessed to live the kind of life that I live, or have the honour of impacting people's lives and make them as excited about creativity, fashion and design as I get. I feel compelled to share one of my all time favourite quotes with you:
"Life Isn't About Finding Yourself, Life is About Creating Yourself" - George Bernard Shaw.
I am living proof that you truly can have anything you want if you have the courage to go after it. We are all on the same crazy ride, and as each year goes by faster and faster, and each holiday season seems to arrive sooner and sooner it has become crystal clear to me...If not now, then when? If I don't start now, when will I have the time to make the things that are important to me a priority? When will things finally start to fall into place? If I don't take control of making great things happen in my life, who will? It's up to me to bring all of these great ideas in my head to life. It's my responsibility to develop my knowledge and skills and become the person that I know that I am capable of being.
So, in 2015, whatever you do, wherever you live, whoever you are: I want to challenge you to really put yourself out there in a meaningful way this next year.
And that is exactly what I plan to do
Life doesn't happen to you - YOU happen to IT.
HAPPY 2015 and KEEP EVOLVING!
