After a very busy and somehow complicated week, I haven’t had enough time to prepare the post with a lot of pictures that you are used to, so mainly I ask for you to accept my apologies.
Since Milan Fashion week is in full swing right now, I promise I will bring you something special next week, with videos and photos previous to the runway show, the private parties and the backstage where we go a little crazy, and with a very special article.
Today I will do something different, and I will talk about how I live these days.
I have mixed feelings; some of you know about my peculiar situation in regards of the physical changes I have been through and I am still experiencing, in the high season of fashion my head is full of memories.
Most of them are positive, but I can’t help but imagine how my life would have been if I hadn’t have to live this situation. A lot of you don’t know what I’m talking about, but I will tell you someday, however, now is not the time.
Its hard being trapped in an incontrollable situation that life runs at its will without barely options for change. Fortunately everything is fine, but its hard thinking of moments that in some way disappeared.
On the other hand, one of the things that I’m thankful for is for life to having given me a second chance to fight. A second chance to start from scratch, to value and appreciate.
We don’t have any idea how hard something can be until we find a hole in our path and we plummet to the bottom, without knowing how to get out. Even then… everything is posible.
We, the women who are referents in the fashion world talk about how important is for us to love and accept ourselves, nevertheless we don’t help anyone with our words, we must do it with our acts.
I recognize that it’s not easy, it’s not easy selling happiness if you aren’t happy, is complicated to smile when the only thing you want to do is cry, and is difficult to move forward when on occasion we must stop and reflect.
Well, today is one of those days. Today I stop to reflect, to look around me, to think about what I need, and what I don’t. I think and I imagine situations, painful ones? Yes, does it matter? Also yes.
The negative side always turns into a positive one, but in this case it helps me realize my achievements; about what I have managed with the negative situations, about my growth as a woman and a person, and… above all my personal and professional evolution.
This blog is for everyone, me included. We will grow together and we will overcome each adversity. Because you won’t learn if you only see the good, sometimes you have to see the bad to realize that from effort and sacrifice, you get results. Telling you to love yourselves doesn’t mean anything if your pain comes from things that are yet to heal.
Take your time, think about all the good you provide, and work on it. Soon you will discover how special you are and all that you have to show to the world.
With this I say goodbye until next week.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and in the meantime…
Dress with color and live with a lot of love.
