Move! You can always move back. That was my decision. Only thing is I never moved back and don’t plan on it. The thing is, you only live once. Don’t be stuck in a place where you’re feeling uninspired and depressed when you CAN change that. I couldn’t live in Vancouver doing what I was doing. The weather was depressing and the scene wasn’t enough for me to take my career where I wanted to. You have to do it on your own time but maybe take a trip somewhere, walk around, go eat somewhere alone and see if you think you could make that place your home. That’s exactly what I did with LA and 6 months later I moved here. I’ve been here for 4 years now and I’ve successfully moved my business down here. If you will it, it will be. At least give it a try. ;-) What do you have to lose? xx
Q: Laina, I am an artist as well who uses style/ clothes as a form of expression and i nust started a vintage clothing business. I live in Vancouver BC but i feel so suffocated, uninspired and depressed here. I know the only way to live your dream is to BE it, no excuses, but I find it nearly impossible in this city. I am alive when the sun is shining and I can dress my part, be the character of my dream. You are my inspiration through hard times. Give me your wisdom. I love you, beautiful human.
