So in continuation with the meme photo post from earlier today, I…
Well I could try to blame the gorgeous weather from earlier on my attitude as far as going into my part-time job (which is undisclosed.) When in reality it’s not because I didn’t get to enjoy the weather but more of so that working for someone else sucks major ass and balls. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my “job.” I enjoy the aspect of providing great customer service and I also really enjoy visual merchandising, (Maybe 7 years of retail causes my slight OCD visually,) I do. I’m just fatigued at making corporations richer and while I slave. I’m fatigue at being the worker bee while the king and queens bees get to eat all of the honey. Or am I just so passionate, focused and wrapped up into my own small business that I prefer committing my entire time to KUSTOMS by LK? ( kustomsbylk.tumblr.com | http://www.joanshepp.com/collections/men/products/kustoms-by-lk-go-left-stripe-top ) Do I enjoy the creative process more than making money? I say yes to those questions I just asked myself. (For those of you who are in the same boat right now, ask yourself the same.)
I’m for surely anxious at turning my small business into a larger one but more just to have to the room to create as much as possible! When I’m not creating, I really feel dead. My mood changes into a state of unhappiness because I’m not doing what I love. There’s no greater feeling, high, than doing what you love! Especially when you’re great at it. I’m very patient, but I am also human. I’m learning each day to just pray, and take one day at a time. To think positive no matter what. To also keep in mind that everything I temporary. EVERYTHING! So I’m thankful to do what I love and to profit off of it. Also to be blessed to have a second income. There’s many of people less fortunate, I have no complains.
Sidenote: Intersected paths with a former co-worker of mine from Neimans today at Starbucks, 3mins before my shift began. We greeted each other, he complimented my Y-3’s (Qasa Low Racer in Black), I complimented his Burberry skinny tie. We asked how each others day was going both personal and business. We both agreed it has been pretty slow since the break in weather, but that’s retail life. We’re used to it. Then he said something that that not only stuck in my head but changed my attitude before my shift and that was, & I quote: “No one is born great, you gotta work at it. It’s your time, you’re almost there!” “If a man thinketh, then that man is.” Dawg, if that wasn’t GOD speaking through him. He was right though, I felt the energy from those words. It was just confirmation for me to know that I’m on the right path and that I can endure. My attitude determines my latitude, and I know I’m closer than I see. (iight, I feel like I’m writing a novel here haha) I know that each day of achieving greatness isn’t going to be easy, life isn’t easy, but I have to keep pushing forward and remain faithful. There will be a time when I can fully submerge myself into creativity. Patience, Persistence, and Faith.
Having said of all that, be patient, work hard, think positive, and just be. You’re almost there.
Go LEFT, follow your heart.
Peace and Blessings, Great Night.
