It's time already to open a rather new book and fill in the numerous blank pages. But first, it’s essential to look back and analyze the last year. Regardless of whether it felt extraordinary good or incredibly bad. For me, it was another year that went real quick, there were downs but many more ups. And I’m incredibly thankful for the fact that I am still able to do the things I love the most. At this point, a big THANK YOU to each and every one of you. I do not take it for granted, but rather appreciate each form of support from you. That’s why I’m happy to still continue with the Meet & Greets as you can read in the latest blog post.
How elusive it is, when I take a look at where I’ve been one year ago. And at the same time, it’s exciting and still a bit scary to think about what will happen in the upcoming 12 months. But I guess, we sometimes need to lean back and just stay open minded, as we cannot plan every little detail. We do not know every step in advance but after a while, every one of them makes “perfect” sense. It’s always like the exceptional Steve Jobs said: You cannot connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So, try not to worry too much if you feel rather lost. Go on and believe that one day, you’re gonna see the reason why.
Working as a blogger and brand ambassador (Influencer is still a term, which I do not like to pronounce as it’s gonna judged be more and more negative and destroys the original idea behind it) is still in my focus. Next to that, I’m excited to visit Cape Town for the first time and work there as a model. Even if you don’t see a lot of classical model job photos, I’m still focusing on that as well. Apart from these two main projects, I’m happy to get asked more and more for jobs as a presenter as well as keynote speeches, panel discussions. I’m sure, 2019 isn’t going to be boring at all.
There are many more ideas on my mind, but time will tell what’s possible and what just comes with a wrong timing. Some things are given – but for the rest: It’s up to us to fill in the blank pages the way we want them. It’s our story and we’re the author of our own book and the director of our own movie. And don’t worry, if you haven’t found what you love yet – keep looking.
Let’s write a good one.
Happy New Year & write you soon…
