Letting go to get success

I’m beginning to realise that the key to realise that the key to getting where I want to go may lie in letting go.

Letting go of the little things that aren’t directly connected to my dreams, and accepting that the rest of my life may not look or feel at all perfect. I have been soo caught up in messages from successful people about creating a culture and standard for yourself in all aspects of your life. But lately it occurred to me that if I just concentrated my efforts to detail while working on my dreams in order to succeed, that success while make room in my life to worry about the rest later. Because worrying about whether I get my washing done on schedule every Saturday on schedule each week sure wasn’t helping me focus on the important things.

More importantly, it opened up much larger and much more productive chunks of time where I could focus solely on working on my dreams, and GET SHIT done, rather than stopping and starting on lots of little things all day. In my eyes a whole Saturday focused on design or sewing up an idea is much more productive than housework, which could be slotted in elsewhere throughout the week.

I guess it’s about pioritising first while I’m still in a startup phase, and trying to do everything myself!

Do what works for you, listen to the advice of other’s but evaluate whether it’s appropriate for you and accept or reject at will. It’s your life, only you know what’s going to work best for you.

The Show Must Go On!

I left fashion school because I didn’t think there was much left in it for me, and I felt like I was creatively STARVING, so it makes sense that I should jump head long in to my next creative adventure!

I want to create amazing over-the-top pieces, so I thought it was only natural to look into some local theater groups… and found one! It also just so happened that they were having a sign up night a few nights after I messaged them, so I got to go and start from the very beginning of the show process with everyone else. Some would say the stars are aligned!

I joined the group thinking that I could be involved with costumes, dressing, makeup and any other backstage bits that need to be done for the show, and may have left with my arm slightly twisted into filling a small role… it is yet to be determined what that will look like…

Regardless of what type of role it turns out to be, I am terrified! But I know I need to get used to the stage if I ever want to perform musically at least! Plus confidence under pressure and on stage never hurt for overall personal development…

The show must go on!
