although this is supposed to be a short post that normal people would write but I’m anything but so I’m just going to over analyze the situation as per usual haha
So I was on facebook looking something up since I don’t just hang out on there anymore. I came across StylePantry’s page that I was already following and saw these American Apparel, blue riding pants that look like their disco pants and the caption read something like “tweet me on how you would style these for a chance to win them.” So I did, just doing it for fun, not really thinking I would win and I won!!!
This weekend was a rough one where I sort of had a breakdown not knowing what the future holds and just being frustrated that I’m not moving as fast as I would like or that I’m not in the space that I thought I would be in at the moment. A breakdown is always a way to a breakthrough (I think I got that from Oprah haha). Winning this styling challenge/giveaway, I saw it as a sign that I do have the talent, knowledge, and the capabilities to succeed in the industry. I just need to apply myself and dive right in whether or not I know the outcome. I was so excited when I received StylePantry’s tweet that I had won. I don’t think I’ve ever won a contest before besides winning Princess for Karamu and even then that was a huge shock!
I’ve always thought that people saw me as average or mediocre and who knows maybe I am but I refuse to think that way about myself. Just because I’m not the loudest one in the room doesn’t mean I’m the weakest. I actually think quite the opposite: the loudest one usually IS the weakest and I truly believe in the “silent but deadly” characteristic that a person can have.
This is only the beginning. Bring it On!
