✌🏻WTF (Wait Till Friday)✌🏻
I’m so over the game, and living for the weekend…
I can’t count how many times I have had this thought reek havoc on my mind. Like a constant skipping record, that nobody can seem to fix. What is it that compels us to continue to push forward even when things are going to hell. Why did I rebuild? Why do I design new Moments, when the ones we just put out didn’t necessarily sale well? Why do I bang my head against the wall to try to unlock my mind with new creative ideas for Vlogs, Blogs and photoshoots? My mind can be a scary place to wander around, trust me. These random subjects, in particular though, kept me up at night for months on end.
Talking to people about Moment, the brand, I find out that they see the clothing, the social posts, and the website. But, for the most part, they have no idea the legit struggles behind the scenes. I am reminded of that poster/picture you see on almost every motivational Instagram account page. You know the one. The iceberg showcasing success at the tip, and that’s all the people see. They don’t see all the trials and tribulations underneath the water line. Until I started this brand, I swear I thought that picture was the biggest crock of shit I had ever seen. I was so naive in my uneducated youth. I couldn’t begin to imagine the amount of work I was fixing to put myself through when I said, “I want to start a clothing line.” I knew it wouldn’t be easy but DAMN, I had no idea all the unknown hurdles were just an added bonus for signing up. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE THIS BRAND, and I wouldn’t trade what we have created for anything.
But I digress, in the midst of all the turmoil, the driving force that keeps me motivated to continue to create is the opportunity to tell somebody new about Moment. For me personally, I started with the idea to create something positive, fun and motivating that would be bigger than a clothing brand. What I am finding out, is that I am nowhere close to where I want to be; but, I am a lot closer than I was the day I started. I don’t know my purpose in life (honestly) but I hope one day it will reveal itself ,and it will all make perfect sense. Until that day comes, I encourage you to continue to strive to find YOUR Moment.
