My favorite quote of all time, by Louis L’Amour. NOTHING THAT’S WORTH HAVING IN LIFE COMES EASY. Being complacent and expecting things to fall into your lap isn’t any way to truly LIVE. There’s always going to be people that don’t understand the path that you’ve chosen, but it’s YOUR path. All the negative things that have happened in my life have helped build character, and made me see the bigger picture. I can’t even count how many times I’ve been turned down from different auditions, from runways shows, modeling jobs, you name it. But what’s the fun in pursuing something that doesn’t involve RISK?
Find what drives you, what makes you feel alive, and pursue it relentlessly. <3
There’s so many social media forums. From Twitter to Facebook, fan pages, Instagram, Tumblr.. The list goes on. Does anybody actually go out to dinner with friends or their loved ones, go to parties, read a good book, watch a movie, and actually ENJOY the moment? It’s so easy to get caught up in filling the public in on our everyday lives that we forget to just stop and take in what’s in front of us. Social media is a huge part of my life. Being in the modeling industry, you have to put your face out there. Regardless if you’re posting about something substantial or what pair of shoes you’re going to wear, you have to present content in order to build a following and a curiosity. I’m not religious by any means, but I’m very spiritual and through this journey of mine I’m trying my best to stay grounded and true to myself no matter the circumstances or situations I’m faced with. I’ve come to the realization that I’m putting so much effort and emphasis into my business that I forget to slow down and BREATHE. I work extremely hard yet I almost neglect working on myself from the inside out. I’m trying to be the best person I can be while pursuing my dreams. I’m trying to find a BALANCE.
