In the fashion world, September is the New Year. Thousands of new designs and ideas are sent down the runways and there is an air of excitement for out with the old and in with the new……almost a back to school mentality (but in a good way). And with the idea of the 'New Year' one can't help but feel hope and anticipation for what lies ahead……on the runway and in life.

There comes a point in everyone's life where you wake up and ask "when did THIS become my reality?" If your life feels out of balance or "off" then chances are it probably is.

After this realization the next question is "what do I do?". Do you stay and keep going through the motions because its the "right" thing to do? Do you remain complacent because it has become comfortable? Or do you take a chance and leap off into the unknown?

At the ripe age of 9 a valuable lesson came to me....you must experience pain in order to appreciate how beautiful life really can be. If you want to be genuinely happy then you must take that risk that life has more to offer you.

Yes, starting over and major life changes are terrifying.....but they are also exhilarating.....because for the first time in so long your future has not been decided for you....its now open and waiting for you to keep pushing ahead, And its nice to finally understand the quote "life begins at the end of your comfort zone......"
