I’ve walked away from a lot of opportunities.
(Just a few…)
* A shoot for a popular men’s magazine
*After my first ever audition, a part in a movie
*A big promotion to a marketing team for a growing business in LA (They don’t care about the environment!)
*A job at a Hollywood Gossip Magazine, with options to “hob nob” with the most famous (I only lasted two days there- hated it)
I walked away to work for minimum pay and make a maximum difference. Working with communities, children, and people with the same values: To make this world a better place.
Nobody is perfect. Martyrdom isn’t healthy either. But at this point in my life, I have to look back on these moments and others… and say, “Why do I keep choosing the hardest route?”
Because what I value above all else, is freedom. What I love to do is go somewhere, a home, business, or town, and make it better. I like building people up. I like streamlining. I like taking the heaviness of everyday life away… and making room for newer and better. I like bringing light, love, and laughter into the dark corners of the earth.
I don’t value things. I am a minimalist. I value experiences. I value people. Nature. Not everyone is like this, and that’s good. Variety is the spice of life. But this is me.
That’s why I pulled back. Reassessed. And decided where my career would go. I renewed Kerryluvcat as a business and cleaned it up. Then I wrote. I didn’t create something to sell, I created something I want to GIVE.
I shared this with my future husband, saying, “Honey if you marry me- this is what you’re signing up for. This is my calling.”
No matter where I go or what I do, I do it with 100% certainty that I want to be there. And while I’m there I work to my highest capability. I leave nothing behind. I give everything I’ve got…
To make it better.
I hope you all like the show. And remember, it’s just one step on a long road.
While we’re still designing the new site… you can check out my Youtube for updates & Give-Aways:
I also have a new Facebook!
Thanks Everyone! See you soon!
KLC is still down for maintenance but will be back soon with a fresh look!
This is definitely one of those hit yourself on the head “Why didn’t I think of that?” moments yes?
This might be a good thing to make in lieu of my long-abandoned t-shirt quilt. Chopped-up t-shirts fit my sartorial aesthetic a bit better than my home-decor aesthetic.
