Selling out or sticking with your dream?

I feel so rubbish about the lack of posting going on recently, my whole life is just revolving around job applications at the moment. My current workplace is shit, I got a final warning for sending personal emails a while back and it’s all gone downhill since then. I’ve literally been applying like crazy, I’ve been getting good feedback and interviews etc but just nothing thats me really. Right now, I just feel like I’m going round and round in circles, I want to carry on working in marketing but in the fashion/retail industry cause let’s face it, I’m obsessed. I just don’t have relevant fashion marketing experience. I’m so so unhappy at work, and I’m debating to just get any marketing job and giving up on my dream so to speak. But I’ve never been a sell out in my life and I don’t want to start now. I think I’m in need of a pep talk, a hug and some retail therapy.

Times like this, I start thinking about people who I admire. Kate Moss is on that list, no matter what, she has gone with what she wants. Even during the Pete Doherty stage, when the whole world was telling her he’s no good, she stuck with him. Simply because it’s what she wanted to do. And she’s always come out of controversy and drama stronger than ever. Oh and she’s got impeccable style yada yada. Seems like life is always sweet when you’re Kate Moss.

    never ever give up! hard work and some some disappointment will ultimately lead you to where you want to be. You may have to start at an entry level position but you’ll get the best experience and be able to work your way up. You can do it! I love the dress on Kate in the last picture too
