Last weekend, I met up with my new friend Paul on a cold Saturday morning to shoot for his February lookbook. Although it was our first time meeting, we cliqued so well and had such a great conversation about the importance of following our dreams. Often times, I find myself making excuses for not accomplishing various things I had set out to do, whether it is not having the resources or the time, fear of failure or other self-imposed restrictions. Hence, I was so inspired and comforted by Paul’s determination and confidence in the work he was doing. It was a great affirmation of the goals I have set to achieve in the coming months.
