Hey!!! I realized that since I decided to launch “AmoreLuxe.com”, I took a break for most of May to work on how I wanted the site to look and what I wanted it to represent. As a result, I haven’t posted about the status of my Oprah GoFundMe campaign that I spoke about here (https://amoreluxe.com/2014/04/29/help-me-see-oprah-at-the-prudential-center) I have AMAZING news!!! I was able to meet my goal of $600 in less than 2 weeks and I purchased my ticket to see Oprah live at the Prudential Center for her “The Life You Want” weekend in September:) I am so grateful for this opportunity and I just want to thank everyone who donated/promoted because without you, I would not be able to have the opportunity to see one of my inspirations live and hopefully in the (near) future, being able to meet her face to face.
At the beginning of the year, my friend Kimmy encouraged me to create a virtual dreamboard so I could have a visual representation of all the goals I wanted to achieve. I told myself that when I accomplish (most) of my goals, I would share the board with all of you. Meeting Oprah was definitely one of the goals on the board and I feel that this opportunity is bringing me one step closer to achieving this goal as well as motivating me to go after all of my other goals and dreams. 2014 has been a year filled with many highs and lows but I know that through it all, perseverance and dedication will win out. Every year I tell myself that I won’t practice the behaviors that have held me back in the past but it wasn’t until my father passed and realizing that circumstances can change in the blink of an eye that I can’t continue to do things that make me unhappy or lead me off the path that I need to follow to accomplish my goals. Nothing worth having is ever easy but when you are passionate about something and won’t stop until you get to where you want to be, the struggles are worth it. I will be sure to post all about my Oprah experience in September so stay tuned for that as well as all the things I have in store for the summer:) Be sure to comment and let me know what you want to see on the site as well as any questions/comments/critiques you may have! Love and live luxuriously!
