HOW I FELL BACK IN LOVE WITH MY PASSION

HOW I FELL BACK IN LOVE WITH MY PASSION

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??

    Baby girl looking like a bad of money, lovely write up!

    Sometimes it takes us years or decades to realise our true self. Months ago,i woke up very sad and realise i have been wasting away and try to think about a particular interest i find fulfilling.
    That took me to my jounrey of my self discovery. COOKING and PLANNING

    This is nice Bukky! I enjoyed reading it. Personally, I think I must have had one or two passions that I lost touch of at some point but I can say circumstances around me made it difficult to pursue them at that point in time.

    Growing up it was acting…don’t really know what happened to this one. Lol. Then much older it became presenting. I wanted to be an on air personality and I started working on it.. I even interned in a popular radio station in Lagos here..I was close to getting a job that I had dreamed so much about but just then, I decided to go into fashion..(Well, story for another day)

    Point is, just like you knew you were going to serve in the military, I knew I wanted to do fashion and some dreams could wait, some couldn’t. I might be needing an experience like a “loverboy” taking me on a trip to Paris, (hehee) to ignite my other passions back, but for now, fashion has been a hit back to back and I’m loving it. Lol

    • January 26, 2017 / 2:26 pm

      Thank you, your story inspires me also. Yes, some dreams can wait and Congrates on ur back to back fashion hit. Lol!

    Shuga!!!!!! All things sweet and spicy…

    This is the beginning of everything great for you..

    I doubt I have lost passion for something I once had passion for. I am currently on the verge of switching to a handwork that truly makes me happy.

    God be with me.

    Hnmmmmm! What more. You have always been amazing, I could recollect back in UNAD  days, you could use hours to select clothes b4 finally picking up one,the word FASHION is simply you. I almost lost the zeal been a Beauty therapist, just kicking it aside, stocking my head with books wanna be a BANKER. Gosh! When things begin to wobble, A brother gave me that tremendous inspiration by tailing me till I achieve d best. Today handling things is like Rice and beans name it all about beauty. It’s paving channels filled with potentials. So don’t let anyone tell you you can’t do it. You just have to be dedicated and use ur head. Nothing is too small to handle, it’s gonna grow. @babzibhanihtiy..SUGARITObukzzzzz U da Bomb. Loud it!!! Spice It!!!! O peperish gaaan!‎
