Purpose

 

IMG_6369

When you wake up every morning, what drives you? What is your purpose?

If you want to live a life enriched with love and happiness it begins with you, so  find your purpose and find your WHY.

It’s important to take steps daily to move forward, it’s not always going to be an easy road but if you know your purpose, And what drives and inspires you then you WILL improve your life.

Your why will pull you up when you’ve been knocked down and it will keep you fighting when you’re tired. I heard something this morning from one of my favourite speakers saying “don’t look back you’re not going that way, and when you get knocked down.. get back up”

If we know our purpose it will be the reason you keep on fighting for your dreams.. when it hurts, keep going.. for if we push through those tough times they will only make us STRONGER. Stay focused and do NOT loose sight of that.

Be the very best. Sacrifice, get up early & fight back.. you are FAR from ordinary.

Hard Work Pays Off

IMG_6445.JPG

I Had a conversation with someone today in which we spoke about our goals and how to be successful..this person was adamant that hard work doesn’t ALWAYS  pay off in the end. They told me that some people work themselves to the bone for years and it just never seems to pay off..

Its simple you guys, I responded by telling them that the reason it didn’t pay off was because they had no purpose, they continued to do the same thing over and over again expecting different results & they never saw success because they were comfortable consistently being average.

There are people in this world that work for years within a company but they never progress and they stay at the same level.. I genuinely cannot comprehend why anyone would want to settle and accept average. It’s so important to continue to grow in whatever field that you’re in and be the best at what you do! I understand not everyone has the same mentality as I do but why go through the motions and be like everyone else in this world?

Know WHY you do what you do & exactly what you want to achieve.. Don’t get stuck in the same routine leading to no where.

Bold, Beautiful Biba

If you love what you do you’ll never work a day in your life.. this is so true. I currently work for House Of Fraser, in Manchester as a Brand Specialist for Biba.I’m so inspired by my brand every single day and it’s an absolute privilege to work with such a beautiful brand.

Stars such as The Beatles, David Bowie, Cher, Mick Jagger & Twiggy have all gotten behind Biba and the 60’s brand is BACK & better than ever.

The history alone is inspiring as Biba was the first department store to open in London post World War 2..

Finally, I’m humbled each day getting to work and be surrounded by like minded individuals and I find inspiration in each person I speak with.. we need to keep ourselves growing and learning to take our selves to our fullest potential and it’s important to keep your vision and focus strong,  I’m so excited for this fashion journey ❤

Art & Cats’

Today was nothing short of beautiful. I am constantly looking for new avenues to inspire my creativity so I decided to venture into town to visit Manchester’s Art Gallery and have a peek at the different artists work.. I was nothing short of inspired.

When you explore places you’ve never been before and you have conversations with different minds you understand and gain new perspectives on the way you view things. I believe you become more open to new ideas and different concepts. I read this dramatic piece about Michelangelo from 1503, where rather than him depict the Battle of Cascina, he decided to show the moment before the fight – where the soldiers were caught off guard whilst bathing before the fight of the Piscan army.   I thought deeply about this and I found it inspiring that he chose to draw that moment rather than the actual fight itself.. as I read more I began to realize that his way of thinking was different than everybody else, his thought process was unique and the way he expresses himself is unlike anyone else. I took away with me this simple thought.. Being unique is beautiful, being DIFFERENT is something incomparable and rather than us trying to conform or fit in to societies definition of beauty, we need to own who we are and love ourselves as there is no one else on this earth like you.

Following the Art Museum, I headed over to Manchester’s Cat Cafe. I had never been before so it was all a new experience for me. When I arrived the kind lady at the desk walked me through the process before I eventually headed in to have coffee with the kitties! They have a no shoe policy so I kicked off my boots and wandered into the cafe’ When I got inside it was beautiful!  I didn’t know what to expect so when I actually stepped inside I was delighted.. The staff are the friendliest people and the cats are so loving and calm. I loved that every person inside had a smile on their face, it truly was a warm and welcome place to visit Above is a photo I took of a stranger feeding one of the cats which I found quite peaceful. If anyone is thinking of checking this place out, I would highly recommend it and give it a solid 5 stars 🙂

The Fine Line Between Self-Confidence & Cockiness.

IMG_5837.JPG

I want to talk about loving yourself & why it’s important. I think that there is a fine line between being cocky and being confident and we need to understand the difference.

I believe that is important to love yourself fully and to feel okay with doing so. If you take time for yourself & learn to love YOU then you can also love others fully.

As stated by “psychcentral.com” Cocky people do have confidence, but it comes from a different place than true self-assurance. Arrogance Is one result of building self-esteem from outward sources such as financial privilege or constant praise. However, yank the external support system away and the persons sense of self worth goes with it.

It’s important to understand that there is absolutely nothing wrong with being confident & knowing your self worth. Being confident is “liking” more so “loving” the person you have become. I think that the difference between confidence & cockiness directly transpires from your mindset. Rather than thinking you’re better than everyone else, understand that you are beautiful..as is  each other person in this world.  If you don’t compare yourself to others and you focus on what makes YOU different & what makes YOU beautiful & unique then you too can start to love yourself.

Remember, being unique is what makes you beautiful. You are not a copy of anyone else & are special. Learn to love the things that make you different rather than trying to change them to conform to societies definition of “beautiful”
