Dash of Life: Reflecting on Haiti

So I haven't been posting lately due to a lack of inspiration. The tragedy in Haiti has weighed heavy on my heart, and other things [mainly laziness] have put me on a blogging mental fast. A little over a month ago, my native country was hit with the toughest natural disaster any country has had to face in history. To be quite honest everything I enjoyed about my little blog just seemed so miniscule and irrelevant in the wake of all the horror I was watching on CNN. I really couldn't think of anything to write about and have been lax on how trying to figure out how to find the words to express just how much this had really affected me. I can say that I’m one of the lucky ones, who have been fortunate enough to communicate with family. Thank God for that. I love the way that our people have kept their spirits up this whole time and haven’t lost faith in God. I’m grateful for all the efforts that the U.S. has made as well the people who've used their celebrity for good. I have so much [extra] love for Wyclef, and Yele. I myself have been to benefits, donated to organizations, worn my flag proudly and have prayed and prayed… I mostly find myself wishing I was in a better position so that I could do way more. Then a couple of days ago while listening to “Moment of Clarity” by S.Carter, these simple lyrics hit it hit me like a ton of bricks: “…and I can’t help the poor if I’m one of them, so I got rich and gave back, to me, that’s the win-win” – And I thought. “Duh”. How can I do great things if I’m mediocre in my way of life? Everything I’m doing and attempting to do is for the benefit of my future, and thus the future of my people. Success and hard work go hand in hand so if I’m lax in my ways, no goal will accomplish itself, therefore not putting me in a better position to do more. All Things Fly is a reflection of the things that I love and want to contribute to in my career endeavors as well as influence me. [Fashion, Music, and Life] I genuinely believe that doing what you love is the best way to be successful, so I intend on sticking to the plan and see how far it will take me so I can give back at all times and have the financial flexibility to be a major contributor to all levels to my native Haiti, amongst another places in need. I hope you readers who enjoy this blog continue to support it, I sincerely appreciate the love. Hit that follow button if you haven’t already done so, tell a friend to tell a friend, and all that. In the meantime let’s all continue to be steadfast in the pursuit of our dreams so we can position ourselves at the top and be able to be positively influential.
