A couple of weeks ago i was called by a freelance writer wanting to write an article on 'Tapping into your potential'. I think that through out my life, career and experiences, i have not reached my potential yet, but definitely tapped into my potential. When you stop learning, you stop living.
This happened by a total fluke a good 8 years ago....
I was on a path of art, architecture and design and loved the history of the world and different cultures and how art represented it, but the art got a little boring and became stagnant for me. So the next best thing was to cook my way through different cultures and as times were changing so was food. So this was the best escape and the best outlet to keep moving with the times.
Now back to the article.
So this article was being sponsored by American Express which was great, and there were going to be other women written about in this article along side me. I was told that i would have a small section in this and for me that was FANTASTIC. Grazia magazine is by far the most up to date, most read and respected fashion and news magazine i know, and to have a centimetre in it would be great.
Well this morning i got a call from my husband telling me to rush out and get it. So i did. I nearly passed out. I got the full page article. THE WHOLE THING!!!!
It is beautifully presented, nice black background against my canapes dish, and also my picture which is quite big. The text is relevant and very precise and i hope that when people read this they too can see that they have the potential to do what they like.
Life is once, and i think that you have to be ready to take a fall at one point to reach to where you want to go. Nothing is easy but it sure helps when you are doing what you love!!!!
