Awww Inspiration – you will be the death of me but oh my what a wonderful death you will be!
Clearly we can tell that I am a sucker of Inspiration just by the title of my blog, I’m constantly hungry for more and more. To get the trigger feeling, the awaken feeling that completely catches your attention in the middle of the mundane. This is why I love it when I come across something that tingles and warms my heart. I get many of these little heart warming inspo moments and I cherish even the tiny ones because they all matter one way or another and I may not know how they matter in the moment but I know that I will remember later on… My current job is monotonous, I am not complaining I am grateful for the money I get but it is simply not the job I wish to die in but well that’s another story for another day to tell, my point is that when I am at work doing my little mundane work stuff I often put music to inspired me to keep on, to push forward but sometimes I also like to listening to interviews on YouTube and today I came across one that totally warmed my heart, in fact my heart is still warm. I simply loved it, to someone else this video may mean so little but to me it means sooo much and I’m thankful for the person who put this up and of course the speaker Alber.
In the video Alber talks of many interesting point, someone may see this and think that it only applies to “The Fashion World” but I feel that a lot of what he says applies to anything, anything that we do, things we love, that things we don’t love, it applies to life and that is what trigger something in me so thank you Alber for your honest and inspirational interview.
I encourage you to listen to the video or watch it if you can, I have listening to it during work, and watch it at home now, and I simply love it! I also love his accent, there is something so magnificent about accents!
Here are also 2 other videos I find inspiring…
Marc Jacobs for his sort of naturalness, how he seems to be having a conversation with a friend at a downtown cafe, and I love that he seems very honest – honesty is a very important quality in any human being. To watch Click HERE
Tom Ford – the video is long but is worth listening to, to me he sounds a bit pompous but I do not blame him, he has accomplished so much from such a young age that it is completely understandable. Also I appreciate his bit of arrogance as it shows this person who has never given up, he has been quick, smart, intuitive, a risk taker, and he has this sort of sureness/confidence in himself that is completely admirable. And even though I say that he may come off a bit pompous he also talks about some very humble moments he had in his life and that is very honest and courageous of him to say such things as he felt in the moment when they happened.

These 3 wonderful men I do love to have as friend just because they all have very unique qualities but they all seem very different from each other, and I completely love that.

“When you enjoy something and when you bring a good energy to it, it shows in the product… I mean, I think that we create what we are. Basically when we are sad we create sad and when we are happy we create happy. And when we are miserable we create miserable, it shows and it feels.” -Alber Elbaz
