Right from when I could remember I have always loved fashion and style. I love to wear what suits my body type , not necessarily what’s in vogue or acceptable by the society. My love for glaming up increased when I found myself in the fashion business, Which was Huge at the time.( story for another day, lol) . Fast forward to late 2015, I started a new journey in life,which I will forever be grateful for. Since I stepped foot into the United States , I knew right away I was gonna serve in the military.
I started reading about the navy and before I knew I found Myself at Recruit training command. New environment , new people and was constantly learning new things . My experience at Navy boot camp was bitter sweet experience, which I would be sharing at some point . Through it all, my focus was the finish line , the end goal , No one told me it was gonna be easy but I was ready for the challenge , I knew this is a road that leads to a place I have Always dreamt about . I graduated Navy boot camp/Aschool April 2016.
Just before I graduated , I spoiled myself,lol. I took myself on a shopping spree ,i got myself Everything including a professional camera with lenses, because I know for a fact I was gonna start glaming up and taking pictures, since I had taken almost a Year break, I had everything played out in my head. On Returning home , I lost it all , I mean ALL ,my love for cute dresses,and fancy shoes, lol! Infact the sight of a camera disgusts me, all I wanted was to wear sweats, cardigan, over sized cloths or better still my uniform which i have always worn everyday for the past couple of months. I couldn’t figure out what it was , but I know I wasn’t ok mentally, how could someone not like what she has always loved. This was my struggle for several months .
Not until my fiancé whom was my boyfriend at the time invited me over to Dubai , little did I know, all I needed was a lil bit of love , because honestly , I didn’t feel so much love on getting back home from training( As I don’t have any family here in the USA ,and not so much real friends) . I had so much fun in Dubai, it wasn’t about the destination, cause I have been to Dubai before then, it was about the love and care I got, I think it’s safe to say I was missing my boyfriend, lol.I laughed uncontrollably, I would changed a million times before finally picking out an outfit to wear( the real me coming out).
I returned from Dubai with loads of love in my heart for everyone and everything around me .That was a turning point for me. Honestly I believe Love and care was all I needed , which I could have gotten if I had Family and real friends when I returned home from training . Keep in mind the whole training and schooling was sometimes nerve/emotion wrecking for me , Personally .
But finally I Found a balance between my Job, Life, and my Passion . Everything started working hand in hand . Which I will be forever grateful for. God healed me, Love healed me.
I would like to know in the comment section, Have you ever lost your Passion for something you really liked before? Lol. What was it and how did you get back to loving it??
