A Journey of a Thousand Miles Begins With The First Step
A Chinese proverb written in ten short and simple words sums up all the things I want to say in this blog.  As with the creation of a handcrafted tool, a beautiful piece of hand-loomed fabric or a piece of delicious chiffon cake for the holidays, my fashion business was born out of meager resources and a simple belief that all things are possible if you put your heart and mind to it.
   The creative process is not an easy one.  During the times of bringing up the business, there has been periods of self-doubt and pessimist attitude that says "I can't do it and it can't be done."  For how could you do something with nothing on hand but a dream and a little prayer on your pocket?
   But one important thing in creation is also about God-given talents and intelligence to follow-up an idea with action in order to make something out of nothing.  It is a testament to that power of determination and belief in one's self.  Success came to those who dreamed big and did something about it, didn't they?
   This one simple step that I took will be the beginning of a thousand miles of journey towards success and self-realization in the belief that nothing is impossible if determination is greater and stronger than fear.  The foundation has been laid, the journey has began.   Watus Solis
