Quote of the Day: Follow Your Passion

Oprah

This week marks my third time at New York Fashion Week and it’s still surreal to me; it was just a few short years ago that I wrote on my bucket list Attend New York Fashion Week; not only have I done it once, but three times! Don’t give up on your dreams!

Love Always,

Quote of the Day: Finding Yourself

I found this quote a while back and it has since been one of my favorites. I think one of the most crucial parts of growing up is deciding who you are and what you love, not what your family loved or what society tells you to love, but truly what makes you happy. Have you ever been having a conversation with a friend or reading a really good book and when you look at the time hours have passed when it seemed like minutes? I think that society tries to tell us what we should love or who we should be, when in reality once we find what we love, what we would happily spend hours doing, we in a sense find ourself. I hope that you can spend your life doing what you truly love!

Love Always,

Career & Passion

Career=PassionI apologize for the lack of posts this week, but after my finals are done Monday I should be back to posting more frequently! I wanted to post this quote today for many reasons.  The first being that I think in order to be truly successful at something you have to be passionate about it.  I think that too many people choose their job based on the income rather than what they are passionate about and end up being miserable and I didn’t want to be one of those people.  I want to take something that I love doing and make a career out of it. For example, my dad loved planes when he was little, got his pilot’s license when he was young and has been a pilot now for over twenty years; he took something that he was passionate about and made a career out of it.  All of this to say….Press & Industry Registration opened yesterday for New York Fashion Week and I’M REGISTERING! More details on that to come at a later date!

Love Always,

Quote of the Day: Figuring out your Purpose

One of the biggest struggles I’ve had in college is figuring out “what I want to do when I grow up.” Whenever you meet people they always ask you the same three questions: 1)Where are you from? 2) What is your major? 3)What do you want to do with that? I’m fine with the first two questions….the third one is where I have my issues.  The Scenario either goes: 1) I say I don’t know and they start suggesting jobs for me OR 2) I tell them I want to work for IMG with New York Fashion Week and they look at me like I’m crazy (or they start suggesting other job ideas for me). It took me a while, but by the time I got to college I realized that my passion in life is for fashion (yes I know that rhymes). I’ve finally realized that it’s okay not to know exactly what I’m supposed to do with my life, because if I follow my passion God will show me my purpose. Yesterday at church while talking about serving, our pastor said, “If you find your passion, you might get tired, but you will never get burned out.”  That’s how I want to live my life; I want to grow up to do something that I am so passionate about that no matter if I’m 24 or 74 I will wake up and love doing what I do.

Love Always,

Amy Elizabeth
