So I stumbled upon this quote quite a while back and it’s been one of the ones that has kept me pushing through even through the toughest times, so I thought I’d share it with you guys to keep you all motivated as well. If you want something to happen in life, you’ve got to make sacrifices, there’s really hardly a way around it. You may need to go to extremes, and if you are willing to, there will be so many rewards to reap at the end, you just have to keep pushing. Doesn’t matter what anyone thinks - whether it’s your family, friends, boyfriend/girlfriend, etc. - you must do it for you. This is in no way shape or form a selfish thing to do. If anything, anyone who is wanting to stand in the way of you and your dreams is the selfish one.

I’ve gone through many ups and downs throughout my artistic progress, as I’ve mentioned before, and I’m sure anyone who is passionate about their dreams could relate. There may be people wanting to get in the way - people who get jealous, and wish you the worst (and you may be surprised who these people are). There may even be times where you feel lonely and start questioning whether or not the pursuit of your dreams is even worth it. But the only way to get there is to ignore it all and just keep pushing.

You’ve got to stand like a rock by your dreams if they are important to you. Keep only those people around that support you and genuinely want to see you succeed - no one else really matters. It may sting along the way or you may be one of the lucky ones with a great support system. Either way It will be difficult - but anything that’s worth while in life almost always is. =)

That's awesome! Was it your first time here? Beautiful time of year for a wedding! I have lived here for about 7 years now and really love it. Love the short winters and the hot hot summers. You must have similar weather in Vancouver, with added rain on occasion?

Haha yes, lots and lots of rain! I don't mind it so much, though. Although, the rain seems to have gone down significantly over the past couple of years. It's either that, or it just doesn't phase me anymore. It's the sun that really gets to me! I guess you could say I'm a cold weather kind of gal. And yes it was my first time there! I've been to many parts of BC but never Kelowna for some reason. Always wanted to go, so it was really nice to finally be able to. =)
