Real Makeover, thoughts, and thank you

10/18/2011 02:24:00 AM

Okay so good news (for me) I'm doing Real Living's Real Makeover for the December issue. I'm sure I've mentioned it like a few post before, but it's just really exciting for me that I want to blabber a bit more. If you're looking for some interior design inspiration or advice, or any of those things, then this post is not for you. Haha.. This is the post where I'll be typing away about my thoughts on what's been going on with, well who else, me!
The makeover is almost done, but I won't show it yet 'til late November, just in time for the issue. But I'm telling you it will be colorful. :)

I still can't believe I'm doing that. I feel so blessed about everything that's been going on. A few months back if someone would have told me that people will hire me to design their spaces, I would have laughed. Not because I thought I can't do it, more of.. "Why? Why would they do that?" I mean I believe I'm capable, I love interiors since I was little, but I haven't proven anything yet.

But opportunities came, as unbelievable as it may seem, so I grabbed them and held on to them. I'm still holding on. Tight. :) I'm happy. I'm happy people trust me enough to come to me for help. I'm happy people like what I do. I'm happy that my clients are happy. Lot's of happy in one paragraph, but that just sums up what I feel. Happy and blessed.

I've been known by my friends to jumped from one work to another, see my bio here. I'm not the type of person who stays put if I'm not happy anymore. Don't get me wrong, I liked my jobs before (well, most of it.. haha)  and I gained friends and experiences from them. I haven't had a full-time job since 3 years ago, I swear it didn't felt that long time ago! I've opened up an online clothing shop after working, Modista by Elle, and if you have bought from me, thank you. :) I had to closed it down because of circumstances, and I wanted to move on to new things, again. I've continued my freelance graphic design gig up until all this blessings came pouring in.

I don't know why, but everything I wanted, I got. I wanted to be a graphic artist in an ad agency, I became one. I wanted to work marketing for a fashion brand, I got in. I wanted to sell clothes, I did it. And all those things in between I did, I wanted them. So now I wanted to work on interiors, I'm doing it. Who would not feel so blessed with that?? I'm telling you, God likes me. There's no other reason. I'm not worthy.

So thank you so much. If you constantly check in here to see what I've been up to, thank you. If you're one of my clients who completely trusted me with your space, thank you. If you simply like what I do, thank you. If you're my friend, family, love ones who support and love me, thank you. And thank you God for all the blessings.

I feel like I just gave a best actress speech. Haha... Now that I got that off my chest, we'll be back with regular programming. 'Til then. :)
