“The More You Celebrate Your Life, The More There Is In Life To Celebrate”
Hello Loves and happy happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderfully creative weekend and you’re ready to get this sew week started. As many of you know I just celebrated a birthday on February 6th and I have to say I had an amazing week! Yes I said week because I started on the 4th and I kinda sorta wrapped things up yesterday. I say kind of because I actually plan to keep the celebration going for the entire month, the only difference is I had to go back to work! LOLL
I’ll be honest (full disclosure) the beginning of the month didn’t start out so great at all! On February 1st I had a mini breakdown in the since that I really began to question the current path I’m on wondering when, how , what, where you know the whole I’m not where I want to be feeling that completely overwhelmed me for two days! I felt a little defeated because I made promises and set goals for myself some of which accomplished and others not so much. The thought of another year passing me buy without having completed all that I set out to do hit me kind of hard this year and to be honest I really don’t know why so much this year.
For two days I couldn’t shake this heaviness on my heart and I while I wanted to celebrate and get things going I simply couldn’t. So I went to my happy place (My studio) turned on my music and began to clean and organize my space. As I cleaned and cried a little bit I remembered what a dear family friend once said to me when I told her I felt to old to start this part of my life over again. She sweetly and politely but with conviction said “Listen that is bullshit! Now you can decide to be another year older having done nothing but dream or you can kick it into gear and get this party started! After all you are going to keep getting older God willing, so you need to decide how you want to do this!.”
I don’t know why that memory popped into my head when it did but thank you Lord that it did! I changed the song on my stereo speaker wiped my tears and told myself YOU GOT THIS! The next day was February 4th and I was all the way turned up at that point. LOL I kept the music playing broke out the fabric and went to work on some things most of which you’ll see later this month! I say all of that to simply convey no matter where you are in life, no matter how hard things may seem DO NOT GIVE UP! Do what you love simply because you love it! Don’t do it for the likes and social media fame because trust me that is short lived. Do this thing your way and remember there is only one YOU no one else can be YOU so do YOU and let the world see just how BAD-ASS (excuse my french) you truly are.
Hugs & Kisesss
Look Details: Pants Made by MEEEEE! I used my personal pants block and changed the bottom portion of the leg to more of a flare instead of straight fit.
The Jacket was a bargain find from H & M I believe for $12.00 and the top has been in my closet for ages don’t remember where I purchased it from.
