My Eyes ache. I may have read too much.

It's 1:49am and I finally got the kids to bed. A 4 & 2 year old. Oy Vey.

I've been spending the last 2 weeks on a internet, media, social network sabbatical. Yes. I realize I'm borderline insane.

Due to me retiring the boob tube & phone, internet super highway for awhile, I've been reading.
About everything.

Love. High calling. Self esteem.
Self Help. The Secret, a Murder mystery and living religiously by my Oprah Magazines.

After all this, I realized that no matter how many articles about ones "True calling" or "Visualizing your Higher Self" I can't help but on be inspired for only minutes to maybe an hour or 2 at a time.

How is that?
Why is it that it's so difficult to stay inspired?
Is it the noodles being throw across the room after reading a Dhali Lama quote that throw off my inner guru?

How do you stay inspired?
How do you continue to believe in yourself and your dreams constantly?

I'm not sure. I become inspired for moments at a time.

But I read about people with no legs or who have survived disasters, that swim across oceans & start organizations to save jungles and urban communities.

How do they do it? Do they have some kinda of Jiminey Cricket type voice in their head that encourages them?

After reading all these books and articles, i can't help but think that maybe I lack the self-belief these people have.

Short term that's the way Most are cursed to think.

If they try & visualize their higher self, most people expect the muscles and Ferrari within the month.

But these books I read say to not think like that, they tell you visualize yourself in 1 year, 5 years or ten.

See that's damn near impossible for me, even though I'm young in age I'm old in every other form.

Now I'm married, 3 years in.
With 2 small kids and a 3rd on the way. In a new condo in the suburbs.

5 years ago, I was in the midst stagnant boyfriend/ girlfriend relationship that dragged on for too long.
Where he wasn't willing to grow up & I wasn't willing to give up.
That ended in quickie wedding to "repair" our relationship.
And a quickier divorce.

10 years ago, I was 15.
Freshman in high school.
Wide eyed and bushy tailed.
Thinking I was going to become a ballerina or a gynecologist. Lol.

I think the reason people can't see themselves in the the long term, higher power self is because Life is so damn unexpected.

How am I suppose to imagine myself as a smarter, older, richer, more Oprah like self? if 5 years ago I would never figured how I ended up here.

Trying to find your Inner chi or guru millionaire or Yogi is quite difficult when your life consists of bad hair cuts & picking out what vegetables to convince the kids to eat this week.

Will more reading help?

But for now my eyes hurt,
and I may have read too much.

The Woman who wore many Hats, or dresses in this case.

I've decided that after dedicating myself to my family for a little over a year,
I wanted to go back to my calling. The one I always go back to,
Like a high school crush, I was surrounded by it for 4 years at another Boutique, grew exhausted of the constant change and insanity, took a break and now
with a renewed Mentality and clear vision. I came back to the Fashion World.
I work MAGIC almost every season with a company who requests me, VOCAL.
So I feel as though that has been my warm up to this.
The IDEA that influence what buyers purchase and then distribute to the masses is such an amazing feeling.
The IDEA that your personal TASTE is what shoppers are purchasing.

So I'm happy to say that I'm the newest
Member of the #Nurielle family at FASHION SHOW.
I've been doing Visuals, Sales & soon a new project to expand.
It's the perfect time for me to concentrate and grow with the company.

In case you need a One of kind, hand made Bridal Gown, Red Carpet Gown, Night on the town, or want a dress that can turn heads and break hearts come and see me.
Our clientele includes Beyonce, Ana Barbara, Paris Hilton, the Mayweather Family, Soap Stars, Singers, Dancers & Socialites.

Fashion doesn't have to be Size zeros & Runways.

As of lately I've been wondering how I can work on my blog.
I've decided Instead of taking pictures out of Vanity Fair, Vogue & Elle..
What if I highlight EVERYDAY people who Dress Exceptionally well,
On the way to Work, Coffee, at the Gym, SuperMarket or while picking up the kids.
It's not about money or how much you spend or what designer your wearing.
It's about taking what you have whether its for Goodwill, Versace, Walmart, Target, your local small town Department store.
It's not about Size Zeros or Skinny or fat.
It's about dress YOUR body, YOUR shape, YOUR style.
Dress to Make YOURSELF feel Fabulous.
No matter your size.
FASHION is International & Doesn't Discriminate.
So from now on, while Balancing 3 jobs lol
ill be doing a WEEKLY HIGHLIGHT of Beautiful People dressing Beautifully at all budgets & sizes.
(First: Cosmologist, Schae in all white on the way to work.

(Second: Blogger & Herbalife Rep Stephanie at a social event in denim shirts, vintage tee, oversized bag & blazer / Instagram: @stephandreaxoxo )

(Thirdly: a Beautiful girl I met inside of Starbucks at Fashion ShowMall. Love the Riding Chic look. Riding boots, tan skinnys, leather belt, sky blue button down, and gorgeous satchel bag.)

Thank you 2012

I wanted to take a moment to Stand back & thank 2012.
At times, you were difficult & gave me the kind of Challenges I didn't think I could overcome.
But Struggle builds Character.
And I truly believe this.
You bestowed upon me my second child,
Baby Emery, his little sister,
Valentina adores him.
You also blessed me with another year with My husband, Kaz.
We've gone through more trials & tribulations than we've ever been through in the past.
My family is in tact.
This company & environment I'm building is for them & I is turning into a marvelous thing.
Allow me to take a Bow & thank you for Everything you put me the through.
The Good & The Bad.
Dear 2013, I hope me & you build a Phenomenal next chapter.
Sincerely, Karla V.
