Week 2: Called in the wrong course?

I missed our Tuesday class due to sickness, and now I feel lost.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s very clear to me that God has called me to be in this course for such a time as this. What’s so unclear to me right now is the “why”. And sometimes I just want to ask Him, ” Why, Lord, give me passion for entrepreneurship when we don’t even have the money? Why art-related when I’m not even the most excellent designer – even my fashion isn’t as good as the others?”

Still, though, I shall follow by faith.

For this week, specifically last Thursday, we talked about lines – what it is, its effects in the eyes, and how we can apply it in fashion design. To be honest, sometimes I can’t see it when they say that “it shoud look wider” when the lines are horizontal. And sometimes it’s frustrating. It’s frustrating when you perceive things differently, but then again, I’d continually encourage myself and all I could say to myself is, “That’s okay,” because it is.

It’s okay to be frustrated. It’s okay to be different. It’s okay to pursue entrepreneurship and clothing technology even if people see it as impossible. It’s okay not to listen to other people sometimes. It’s okay not to do what others expect you to do. It’s okay not to be what others want you to be. It’s okay to live by faith. It’s okay to follow God even when some things do not make sense.

It is okay because it is my call; it is my destiny.

I was born for this.

“Submit to God, and you will have peace; then things will go well for you. Listen to his instructions, and store them in your heart. If you return to the Almighty, you will be restored— so clean up your life. “Then you will take delight in the Almighty and look up to God. You will pray to him, and he will hear you, and you will fulfill your vows to him. You will succeed in whatever you choose to do, and light will shine on the road ahead of you. If people are in trouble and you say, ‘Help them,’ God will save them. Even sinners will be rescued; they will be rescued because your hands are pure.” Job 22:21-30

CT Journey #1: Creative Freedom

My first two class sessions under CT11 are just overwhelming – in the best way possible.

It’s overwhelming because each lesson is a confirmation of God’s vision for me. As I’ve said during the discussion, I’ve always been reminded that I’m in the right place at the right time.

I’m going to expound more in next posts on the reasons why I shifted out of BS Mathematics to choose a different path. For now, take a sneak peek of my first OOTD picture and my creative space!

A little background: I tried to wear a dress – which has the feels that is close to satin – on top of a long sleeved blouse, because I wanted to show Lia Kes designed clothes.

I really love her because we have almost the same principles and inspirations in the clothing industry – helping communities, having passion, and trying to help the environment through recycling and upcycling.

On the other hand, my creative space is just my table in our dormitory. I also tried to put up a memory board and dream board beside the chair.

That’s all for today, I guess?

Au revoir!
