Exactly one year ago today I started at a new company. I had begun to feel stagnant and restless at the job that brought me to New York, and thought this new opportunity would push me towards my next steps. I knew that it was just a stepping stone, expecting only to stay a year - two tops - before taking my knowledge and experience elsewhere in the fashion world. It turned out to be nothing like I expected, and a bit of a troubling environment for my physical and mental health. I would be very hard pressed to list more than two or three positive things that came from my time at this company. But God knew the details - He knew that I had to work there to meet a coworker (who is still a very good friend), and that she would introduce me to the amazing photographer that shot my fall photoshoot. It really is all in the details. Even when we can't make sense of a situation, things are being put into place to shoot us right towards our dreams.
