As I wait for the samples to come in, I am also in the midst of relocating my storage space. The whole week has been spent trying to organise all the past works accumulated over a span of 5 years to prepare to move forward. It was bittersweet going through them and I cannot help but be overwhelmed with emotions when I see my very first sample piece and newspaper clipping.
Oh how time flies.
I saw an interview recently about the late Steve Jobs, speaking about how the people that don’t give up are the ones who succeed. The very core of being an entrepreneur is never money, if it is, you’ll be the first to raise the white flag. Starting a business is one of the hardest things to take on, but also the most fulfilling. These people have an idea they truly believe in that maybe nobody else does. They then have a natural burning desire to put it out there to the world.
Starting something on your own is definitely not easy and can get lonely sometimes. Most of the time, it’s just you and your thoughts and it can get too much if you don’t try to analyse and organise them well. I am not saying that you should be doing everything on your own. No man is an island they say, I guess the trick to this is to surround yourself with the right people who are there to grow together. In an honest and encouraging way.
As much as I enjoy being in the social scene, I am grateful for these moments when I get to be on my own. It makes you think about life and love in the most personal way. Opening up your eyes to the world really makes you understand the meaning of the phrase “life goes on”. It is not a phrase to just brush off problems, it is a chance for you to define what life is to you.
Why I started sharing my blogs was not just because I wanted to document my journey towards my new launch, but I have a desire for everyone to live life to their fullest potential. I have always thought of myself as a strong individual emotionally until I was thrown into a few events that made me vulnerable. Through this vulnerability, I found new strength and spirit and I hope that can be relatable and inspiring in some way.
I realised that many of us are afraid to be vulnerable. This fear grows with age. We’re taught to show a strong front and to cover all insecurities we have. However, when we do not understand these feelings and be honest about them, we tend to put it onto the people closest to us in the ugliest ways. There is absolutely nothing wrong to be vulnerable and to say “hey, I need some support on this”. The only thing for you to understand is where do you need that support.
They say the bad things that you are going through right now are the good things that is to come. Find peace in your circumstance and live your life because life goes on.
