I have never been shy, but growing up I was always quite reserved. I wasn’t the loudest one in the room and I hated being the centre of attention. So a young me would have never thought that I, along with many other people, would see my face published on Vogue. At 5’7” ish,I just make model height but I certainly do not have the model measurements that you usually see in Vogue and other fashion magazines.
I was given the opportunity to walk in Charli Cohen‘s London Fashion Week Spring Summer 16 catwalk, and I felt an even bigger sense of achievement than when I walked for Charli earlier this year. It’s starting to feel like everything is falling into place.
Isn’t it funny how life can serve you a big plate of something that you didn’t order? An idea can turn into reality overnight, and suddenly your life is heading in a new direction. This year my life has changed direction. I thought that I would be on a different path but now that I am here, I know that this is the path that I was always meant to be on. And now that I’m sure, it’s time to build on that momentum.
“Trust the timing of your life, Tashi” is what I say out loud when I find myself wondering why things aren’t panning out the way that I had planned in my head. I plan everything and because of this, I like to think that I am the author of the book that I call my life. But every now and again something will happen that makes me think “that’s not how the story goes!” And that is when I tell myself to trust the timing of my life.
The past nine months have been a chain of fortunate events that I had never even planned to happen. If it wasn’t for that afternoon in November 2014 when I decided to start a blog, those events may not have happened. And if it wasn’t for the constant love and support from my Jordon, I don’t think my own motivation would have been enough fuel to get me thus far.
I still don’t really know where life is going (I don’t think anyone does). I just know that it’s going somewhere, with him (he’s really special). I guess that’s life, a journey filled with surprises, laughter, tears and memories that we create with people who we meet along the way.
Sometimes we find ourselves in the most unlikely situations and other times we live in moments that we didn’t even realise that our hearts had longed for.
