Meh

I woke up this morning feeling so emotional about everything I am doing. I went out on the balcony and just started to cry while having my coffee.
I've been working on my millinery project for 2 years now and I am still waiting on a dream.
Some people know when to give up and accept defeat, I guess I am not one of those people, but sometimes it takes its toll.  I'm very tired and my body is weak, and on days like these its hard to stay positive.

When you believe in something so bad and feel that you are doing something that can make a difference, I guess its easy to think that once people know about it they will feel the same and want to help.  That you tell your story and people will empathize and share your cause.
But reality is hard. Sometimes you can't even get to the people you would want to reach and maybe you have but then your cause seems so small in a world full of issues.

Its quite disheartening.

A social enterprise is hard work, and has so much more of an emotional investment.  Its not easy training people from zero to something, keep them motivated and try to market it and make it grow at the same time.  Its a difficult process, much more than running a regular business and can be very frustrating. I think if I learned to delegate then my life would be so much easier, but I guess because everything is so close to my heart its very hard for me.

But for now I'm going to keep at keeping on and cross my fingers for a miracle.

  1. I understand this kind of situation. I have been dreaming to be a fashion design student for 7 years now, and when I am finally able to go to college I have to take another course because my mum thinks that fashion is only for people who can afford it and now that it is my last year in college I will work hard and study fashion, the one I really dream about.

  3. Don't be discouraged, Mich. We all have these kinds of days. We just keep going. Sometimes it feels as if we artists are in a war, with the world, with ourselves, with those we love. Always wondering if we're doing the right thing, or will ever find success in our undertaking. The only way to get to where we need to go is by for forging ahead.

    I wish you luck, and I enjoy following your romps in London. Stay true to your art.

  9. Ive always looked up to you,you are an inspiration to me who is also trying to make a name for myself for the things I make and do.Ive been dreaming all my life for something big to happen so I can leave a legacy to my children.Its never wrong to dream big and I cant blame you for getting frustrated if its taking too long for your dream to happen. Your work is amazing and when you are close to giving up,thats when you are really,really close to that dream.
    If I can be of help for added exposure,I will blog about you and tweet about you these coming days.Ive built my own following,not many but I know that each person who sees will lead to more.
    I wish us both luck and a life full of magic,love and grandeur.
