Focus

In my very first post I quoted Zethu saying, “if you point the gun you must have an intention to shoot” and I’ve been reminding myself of this constantly, not only to shoot but to aim and hit the target. I will most likely miss a couple of times,  it will take time. However I believe I will hit the bulls- eye.  People will always want to tell YOU, about YOU. It makes them more comfortable to box you in a some kind of category because then they think they know what to expect from you. The minute you exceed those expectations, you find them low-key getting mad at you for no good reason and looking at you like you changed, when in fact this whole time they were not listening or taking you seriously when you were sharing your dreams, thinking that you had your head in the clouds. So now when you finally growing into that person you had dreamt of being, it’s shocking to them.  Don’t let that deter you, go on and dream BIG… so big that you have to become the person that can attain those dreams. Running track in primary school, I remember my coach always saying that your main focus is getting to the finish line, as fast as you can. Do not look sideways and do not look behind you. Keep your FOCUS straight ahead.
With that said, working on this blog is really fun but it requires a lot of work. Looking from the outside, and looking at all these glamorous bloggers, one would think its easy until you take a shot at it. However I absolutely love doing this, a grown up girl playing dress-up! Documenting this time of my life is the icing on the cake 🙂

So like I’m so obsessed with burgundy (amongst other colours ) that I have two looks for this post 🙂
