Blood, Sweat, Sparkle and Curve balls....


It is not easy, but its worth every bit of blood, sweat, and sparkle.  Start each day with one goal in mind; to give it your best, work your hardest and believe that you can do it.  Find what you love most in life and then find a way to make it your work, your life, your career.  I know this can sound impossible but take it from me, it is possible!  But..... it is not EASY and always comes with a price.  You must sacrifice comfort, time with family and friends, sleep, and more.  But it's worth it when you see all that you have worked so hard for come to life.  Be ready for the curve balls!  They will come and you will not get any warning. Just when you think things are all starting to fall into place its as if some invisible force is throwing things in your way to make everything more challenging.  My advice is to get a big bat and smash right through every challenge, and know that you will learn your most valuable lessons during these times.  Don't let anyone or anything stop you from achieving your dreams!  And if they try to, banish them from your personal kingdom!  Negative and bitter people will only drag you down and surrounding yourself with good people will make your life happier, better, and more fulfilling than you could every imagine.  Sometimes bad people can seem good at first,  so make sure you trust your gut instinct to tell you when something is wrong.  Keeping bad apples in your life will make it harder to deal with the curve balls. This much I know for sure.

Tarina, what a great testament for girls of all ages to hear from you!! I, too, feel strongly about the powers of positive influence-from within and from others-and how they can be life changing. So much so, that I instill this belief to all the girls that come and work for me. Since I learned this later in life, I want to make sure that they know that it's never too soon, or too late (as in my case!) to live your dreams and love your life--it is up to you to create it!! You are truly an inspiration to us all!! "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined." Thoreau. My favorite quote. Xoxo, Kim girligirl boutique
