CREATING ONESELF

in21015I sometimes hate the term… let destiny takes it course. Sometimes destiny is waiting for you to take control. Imagine the things you can do when you decide to create yourself.

You can try new things without feeling fear. You can meet new people and learn important life lessons. You can also learn to say yes to things you are afraid of, because they might actually show you who you are. The point is to be the person you want to be, and to do it with confidence. Create yourself and stop waiting for destiny to do it for you.

LESSONS OF A BLOGGER

ktsbloglessonsBeing a blogger is not easy. You have people who love you and then you have people who are extremely negative towards you for no reason. We’re not even going to mention the amount of time and work that goes along with creating original content that will entice not only your visitors, but also different brands. Even with all of that… being a blogger is rewarding.

I’ve been blogging for 4 1/2 years now, and in those years I’ve made numerous mistakes and I’ve learned a lot of things. But since we all know the joys of blogging, I thought I’d write about the lessons I’ve learned from my mistakes. Hopefully my lesson will inspire you.
ktsbloglessons2SCHEDULE, SCHEDULE, SCHEDULE

I’ve learned, my blog runs much more smoothly when I schedule each blog post early. My posts are usually scheduled 2 months in advance; which means what you’re reading right now was written in December. One day, out of month, I come up with ideas for blog posts and schedule them in my editorial calendar. The next day, I look at what I scheduled with fresh eyes and make any necessary changes. From there, I begin writing. Blogging should be treated as a career. If we can work for other people, making their life easier… why can’t we do the same for ourselves?

ADORING STYLE ICON .. DIAHANN CARROLL

ktsdiahanncarrollI crave culture and style. At least once a day, I find myself viewing amazing art and the latest looks off the runway. Style today is heavily influenced on the ground breaking work that was done years ago in Hollywood. I LOVE the Hollywood glamor days when people dressed as if the queen herself was dropping by for a little visit everyday. Which is why I couldn’t wait to share with you one of the people I absolutely adore.. Actress Diahann Carroll.

Her style is legendary and you can probably catch starlets today wearing similar outfits to the photos below. She is currently 79 years of age, and she still looks amazing today (check out what she wore to the Emmy’s in 2013).

ABOUT YOUR DREAMS…

in12715The scariest thing to do is to chase our dreams. We can work full-time and make someone else’s dream a reality, but for whatever reason most of us find it hard to make our own dreams come true. The first thing you should realize is that your dream is just as important, just as amazing, and just as ground breaking as someone else’s.

The second thing you need to realize is that your passion will probably never go away. So why not allow your passion to make you happy to get out of bed every day. Why not allow your passion to show you what you were born to do. It’s time to be brave. It’s time to be brave.
