alldaedae This original picture of the effortlessly #beautiful #vintage #DianaRoss sitting poolside is on my Summer '16 #moodboard...so I decided to try a little #pattern #play with some swatches I'm working with for the collection. What if #PrintedPatternPeople existed in the 70's? #digital #art #DesignedByDae 3w

alldaedae My new year began the day I was let go.
Another pivotal moment in my life and undoubtedly THE best thing to happen to me in 2015. It catapulted the rest of my year...and the rest of my career into the direction it was destined to go. Since I truly had no idea of the size of the blessings coming to me after that day, I couldn't understand the magnitude of the battle I was fighting all the days before that.

At the beginning of 2015, a few days before February began, I was let go from my full-time designer job of five years. "My position no longer existed." All I could remember was at that moment was feeling simultaneously angry and relieved. Being blatantly ignored, unappreciated and singled out for so long, while continuously striving to put out your best work, I grew extremely weary. But when everything was happening and the cord was cut, I was satisfied with the fact that I would never allow a company to treat me like that ever again. My full time job was how I was able to "feed my baby", Printed Pattern People, so the possibility of having to shut the brand down right after it had started was not an option to me. The difference between an obstacle and an opportunity is how we choose to view it. I changed my mind about the predicament I was in, and that in turn changed EVERYTHING.
It's amazing what will manifest when you make moves in faith. This year has been absolutely incredible. From painful tears and headaches, stress-filled days and sleepless nights, to all the reassuring phone calls filled with encouragement and reeking with tearful laughter, more gratifying moments and everyday victories than I can count, by the grace of God, I prayed for it all...and am receiving it ALL.
So that's the short recap of the long journey as to how and why I said that my new year started the day I was let go. This year has been my testimony to what happens when you work diligently and remain faithful to the process, God will send abundant blessings exceeding above all and any thing that we could begin to imagine. Here's to cultivating dreams and living a life that's nothing less than extraordinary, we owe ourselves at least that. Safe travels and #HappyNewYear
