Work. Pursuit or Passion?

Work. Pursuit or Passion?

There is the old saying, well at least as old as my Grandmother, which says something like if you find something you love then you will never work a day in your life. Interesting. Why do grandparents think like this? Should I be an artist or a model because I love it? Will that pay the bills and buy me nice things? I don’t think so.

I want what I need. I need what I want. Simple. Rick Owens and 3.1 Phillip Lim know this. They may have loved designing clothes at the start of their careers but do they now? Would they tell you if you asked? Truth. What is the difference between sell-out or success? I think about this. I dwell. When I do, I like to pull my Mackage over my face and ignore the world.

Aixa and I have the same size feet. This funny to her. She takes my boots all the time. So I take her Roger Vivier runners. I leave her sleeping, and take the Vivier’s downtown as I explore building after building. The architecture. The elevators. Fascinating. My cell is off and in my Gucci. It is quiet in here. Well, you could say that this MSGM pullover is loud. I mean really loud. I love making a statement with my clothes.

Today I will dream about work. Success. How to achieve it with as little energy as possible. As my Father says ‘work smart, not hard.’ His philosophy on money and business matters makes more sense to me. Grandmother is great for teaching me about tea but not financial targets.  Like Frankie says, relax. It is still early. There is no rush. Tomorrow is another day to think about the future. Perhaps I will take a chapter from Dan Lok and ‘unlock the door to lifelong financial confidence.’ Whatever I choose, I will choose for me.
