It’s been a while since my last post. But I kind of wanted to catch you guys up on what’s been happening in my life . A lot of changes , and a lot of exciting things.
Let me start off with the worst thing.
I unintentionally offended someone.
Now if you know me you know that I am not the type of person that goes out of my way to offend someone on purpose or bring about trouble. 9 times out of 10 it happens with me having very good intentions, which is what happened here. Again I’m not the type of person to go into details I don’t mention anybody’s names. But what I did was enough to hurt someone else’s professional relationship with someone else. And that’s huge. An apology was made, and I was instructed to wait on a phone call that never came. I took that to mean that I had hurt this person pretty badly.
The other thing that you all may know about me if you know me very well is the fact that when I get into uncomfortable situations that usually leaves me emotionally paralyzed so much so that I don’t move or do anything. Especially if I hurt someone.
Now I’m going to say what I’m going to say next very carefully. Because I don’t want you to get the wrong idea. I am all for making apologies and genuinely feeling bad about how you treat someone else. But what you should not allow that situation to do is to keep you stuck in one moment in time for too long. Your life is still happening whether you offend people or not. And you must live it.
So you set it aside and if it is Revisited later you can fix it .You don’t forget about it , you don’t bury it ,you simply set it to the side after you’ve done all you can do and focus on what you can work on.
In my case that’s a capsule.
For all of you who don’t know a capsule collection is basically a quick summary of everything you believe as a designer is essential to a man or woman’s wardrobe. A really good example of this is a simple black skirt if you are a woman and you go to your closet I would bet you $5 that you probably have a black skirt somewhere in there. A black skirt is usually found in any designers capsule collection.
This is an idea that I’ve been toying around with in my head for a while, I didn’t tell anyone I didn’t mention it but it’s something that I’ve been interested in. This hasn’t really been the best time in my life but things have gotten better since 4 weeks ago and I’m in a mental place that I can start to think about these things again. what I’m noticing is when you start to think about these things if it is the right time the help you need comes.
And it’s showing up in some unexpected ways
And I’ve been amazed at what I’ve been able to work on and accomplish in a matter of weeks. I’m excited I’m excited for the first time in a month. And it feels good it feels really good. So I’m holding on to those good feelings and when the uncomfortable ones come up I know now how to refocus myself on the good things. Keep your mind focused on everything around you that is good. It’s been awhile since I’ve read my Bible but even the Bible says “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things and the God of peace will be with you” (Philippians 4:8).
Choose peace choose to move forward and good things will happen.
