Wore this to the Sunday night mass/ shopping/ dinner with my boy and the whole family.
Life has somewhat been “BLAH” lately. Maybe the waning days of 2008 are just passing by and I cannot wait for the great things in store for 2009.
I once said in my New Year 2008 entry..“Cheers to a new year, another chance of getting things right.”
Seriously, there’s always something about a new year that seems so optimistic. I guess it’s just always better to begin again and for most of us, a new year provides the opportunity to do so. Another 365 days of chances and choices.
I look at the year that has passed and feel grateful. Again, there was much drama and this year, I stayed away from it and chose not to mind it. Life’s too short to waste chasing drama and totally unnecessary issues. A lot has changed… especially my hair that miraculously kept on getting shorter and shorter. I look at how I was when the year started and laugh at how I look like a completely different person at the year’s end.
Naturally, the year was also filled with triumphs and grand victories. I graduated Summa Cum Laude and earned my college degree this year. (FINALLY!) And while my plan was to take up graduate studies in France on Neuropsychology, things shifted course mid-September when I discovered I had a heart problem and would be unable to sustain a regular job like most people my age. I won’t lie when I say that it shattered me at some point but I had to rally and rethink things. Sometimes we have to roll with the punches. Things don’t always turn out how we want them to.
And now, I am very fulfilled with our fashion line, GLITTERATI since it is something very personal and close to mine and Nina’s hearts. We love fashion and we cannot say it enough. It will still always be our first. I guess the heart thing came as a blessing in disguise since I am very happy to be working on something that I know I am passionate about. I live and breathe fashion. I cannot wait for the new things we have in store for 2009.
This is the reality: with the right look, and a little luck and timing, your life could change—- not just overnight but in the span of a three minute song. I have seen this happen a million times——just from a different angle. I didn’t think it would happen to me. “Perhaps luck exists somewhere between the world of planning, the world of chance, and the peace that comes from knowing that you just cant know it all. Life’s funny like that, once we let go of the wheel, you might end up right where you belong.” I’m not in it this time for quantity but for quality. Again, I ask—- now that I’m where I always wanted to be, I wonder where I’m going next…..
A VERY VERY EARLY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!!!
