I am not afraid to die. I am afraid to die for nothing.

Almost every morning, I have looked into the mirror and wondered what I was doing. Where am I going with my life? And how can I add value to others?

My satisfaction with life dropped because I realized, I was working for money. I came to the conclusion that as soon as I start working for money, I become a slave. Since I did not want to be a slave, I decided to get out of that system and quit my well paid job to focus on what’s most important: to unearth the cause I want to die for.

Everyone of us has been created with talents and gifts. But just because we are or want to be busy, we are not necessarily using them and fulfilling our calling.

We can all be busy doing the wrong work. But we shouldn’t because we are not made to survive. We are made to live so well that we fully empty ourselves – maximize all our gifts and talents – before we leave this earth. Ask yourself:

If today was the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?

Whenever the answer has been no for too many days in a row, you know you need to change something. You either have not discovered your passion or you are not taking steps to make changes about engaging in your passion.

My answer was no – for way too long. Therefore, I decided to empty myself by becoming a blessing to as many people as possible. I studied executive & life coaching, created a blog to share both what life taught me and the style inspirations I get, and my next fashion project is already in progress. This is only the beginning of the uncovering and usage of all that is in me to add value to your life – yes yours, the person reading this just now. Life is supposed to be significant, impactful and intentional; let’s make it that way!

Follow me on my journey that will hopefully inspire you to embark on yours – with elegance, grace, wisdom and joy.

Much love and encouragement,
