It’s been a LONG time since I have last posted something to Persnickety, and this makes me sad. I have been extremely busy working on a plethora of projects that i am extremely passionate about. Starting IGNAZIA Carnival (technically a business), working on a high-profile bloggers’ breakfast about beauty & fashion, prepping for fashion week, changing my residence, holding down my full-time job AND of course, exploring the Big Apple. Lemme tell you, it is not E-Z.
When I think about all the things that I have done and am doing since the beginning of this year (& might I add, its my 25th), it truly is A LOT. It can be very overwhelming at times but the truth is I would not have it any other way. As I tell everyone (well the people closest to me), I have dreams and I will do my BEST to make them happen. I have always been an ambitious person but after my grandmother’s passing 3 years ago, my need & determination to fulfill my passions have become stronger. As Drake says, YOLO (You Only Live Once)! I’m a firm believer in that so why NOT make the best of it? Why not do the most with it? Seeing my grandmother pass (who was a fashion mogul herself!), made me realise how precious life is and that there is NEVER enough time. Everyday is a blessing. Everyday is a gift and everyday is unknown.
Despite my moments of self-doubt and insecurity I have made a decision to at least try and do my best. That is all one can do, that is all I can do and that is all YOU can do, so just DO IT.
