For a while now, I have been meaning to take a professional profile picture of me but for some reason it didn’t happen until last week and finally got the pictures yesterday… The first thing that came to mind on seeing the pictures was “whaoooo… Is this me?” all I could see is growth!!! which by the way I rarely see (I can be overly hard on myself sometimes), how far God has brought me, and how I am Becoming all that He will have me become gradually.
The pictures also reminded me of my very first day in fashion school, I remember going back home with tears in my eyes, telling my husband I can’t do it… He asked why? I told him I struggled with the machine, whilst everyone in my class was doing so well. So, He said to me, you didn’t go to class for everyone else, you went for yourself. So, ignore what everyone else is doing and go at your own pace…
Let me give you a little background: when I started the fashion side of my business, I only had tailors, who helped bring my ideas to reality. Whenever the thought of learning came to mind, there’s always this fear and voice of doubt saying, it was too difficult and don’t think I can learn. And for some reason, I think it was the same voice playing with my head, but thank God for Hubs, who told me He believed in me and I can do it, all I needed was to focus on me! and enjoy the process.
Later that night, the Chief Encouragement Officer and I had our father-daughter discussion, and reminded me of the conversation we had years back, when he was revealing my purpose, ministry and career and mentioned I was going to be doing makeup and fashion. My response then was like, I don’t know jack about beauty or fashion, then He said to me: you are not going to be doing it alone, the trinity is with you and the holy spirit will teach you all things. I remember back then, that after this conversation, I changed my personal message on my Nokia 3310 phone to Trin’I which means “Trinity and I” just to serve as a reminder for days like my first day in fashion school when I DOUBT AND DON’T BELIEVE IN MYSELF.
Just in case you are wondering why all this epistle on top picture 😆😆😆 I just feel strongly to say to someone, you are on the right path, and Yes You Can and You are a Super Star. The journey might not be an easy one, but know that One with God is a winner!!! So, you forge ahead with a winning mentality. On becoming all that you are created to be, don’t look at where others are, focus on your path, because no two journeys are the same no matter how alike they look.

No one is a failure, we only feel like one, when we begin to compare our journey with that of others. You remember my first day at fashion school? what I didn’t know was that, the people I was comparing myself with had years of sewing experience 🙄🙄🙄 and here I was thinking of quitting! Today, I do not only know how to sew, I train and coach people on fashion design and sewing.
