Today I would like to go back to where I started, back when I had to text my pals to tell them I posted something on my blog and remind them to have a read. When almost every body laughed after I told them I was blogging and their response would be like “what are you doing again? Don’t you have something better to do?” When I was more than happy to write about a product just because the company or their agency send me. When some stores would feel way too good to work with you. Well, guess what?Over time things change, the people who you once called and they didn’t return your call now begin looking for you. The same ones who laughed at you at the beginning, now want you to advertise their products. That’s when you smile, say thanks to God and pick those calls then ask them ‘yes please, what can I do for you.’ Every other day I get a mail from someone who wants to start a blog, get in to the fashion industry..who wants to do something, be someone and my message is always one, ‘I can’t tell you its going to be easy but once you’ve made up your mind..keep going..people are going to say things which you might not like, don’t let them distract you. Keep your eyes on the goal and one day you will look back and you will be glad you did it’
Now looking back, there are those people who always supported you. The ones who believed in your dream, those you grow with and keep them close at all times. Today I dedicate my blog post, to this one lady who believed in me then up to date! In as much as she is not really an ‘online’ person and has probably never even read the blog, she believed in the potential! She has made over 95% of all my African outfits if not all, even the one I’m wearing today. She doesn’t just make a dress, she makes it with her heart. She doesn’t read my blog, neither is she on social media but she does brilliant work. To date I will still get a fabric and send it to Mombasa to Sarah because I am convinced of her work.
Here is to those people in our lives who have continued to support us, as we grow may we never forget them…Sarah’s contact +254 722 604899 (if you talk to her let her know I said thank you)
