I am so happy that the relaunch of Hailey Millette is FINALLY happening! So much has happened since the last time I had a chance to share a piece on this platform and I can’t wait to share with you all what I have learned. Thank you for being apart of this journey for Hailey, myself and the rest of the team! Enjoy!
Life is all about the journey you embark on and 2019 is the year that will be one of the biggest years in my journey. Who I have evolved to be today has changed so much, and I have grown to be much more than I could have ever imagined. The crazy thing is that you dont know whats coming until it happens, and that’s the wild part. I am seventeen, graduated, living on my own, I’ve worked on world famous movie lots in Hollywood, I’ve done press for musicians in the UK, and I've gone on adventures that you only see in the movies. It sounds picture perfect, but there's a lot more than what you see or even what I am telling you. You read that I have done these things and could think, “what more could she ask for that sounds perfect,” but coincidentally I can ask for a lot more because it “sounds perfect” but it is far from it. Everyone wants what they don’t have even when everyone on the outside thinks they have the most. The truth is that even though I am doing all of these great things, I am alone. Something no one ever wants to be and although I love my alone time, I do not wish to be alone, unfortunately it’s a sacrifice I am willing to take and does not affect my potential for success in the future as long as I do not allow it to. It’s not easy to constantly be by yourself but it has taught me ALOT. It has allowed me to appreciate the time I spend alone and even give me a clearer focus into the future. As much as it can be a bummer, I like to look at things in a positive way and think about all the ways it has benefited me. Overall it’s just a moment in time that will pass, and before I know it I could be overwhelmed with people I meet out here and quickly be filled with other souls to connect with. For now, I value the time I have alone and channel that energy into focusing on creating a better me. It’s just a fact and even though it can suck day to day, 2019 will still be the year I finally do everything I have ever wanted. It’s the year I used to dream about and it’s really here.. It’s the year I will FINALLY be turning 18 :) which is something I truly can't believe. Luckily, I already live a life with A LOT of freedom which is absolutely beautiful, but being legally free makes it even better, because it now lifts all the restrictions for what I am truly allowed to do. No more obstacles and being turned down for being “too young”. I have so much I have always wanted to do but could really never. Now that I am truly in my own control it all goes down this year and it will be the craziest, most wild year I have had, yet in the end it won’t be the only year I have like that because this is just the start to a lifetime of greatness. Writing is something I want to really incorporate a lot into this year because I genuinely enjoy writing. It gives me a chance to look back on the past with such excitement and I am always so proud of myself for doing what I said I was going to do, it's an amazing feeling to see how badly I wanted something and how eager I was to make it happen and in the end sitting there, having completed the goal is a remarkable feeling.
I was fortunate enough to be able to go back and forth between Las Vegas and Los Angeles which has allowed me to reassure myself in the direction I am headed in with my life which feels really good because my first 3 months in Los Angeles were very successful, but emotionally draining because I was getting lost in why I was here for a minute and things slowly started to sink mentally, but now that I have reset my mind and taken a step back I have realized that I must feed myself things to accomplish whether I am working or not and when I have “days off” I need to be working on other things. That is the only way to accomplish my goal. It is my first day off from my new job and I have spent the day making videos and writing for this amazing blog. Going forward it is time to save that money and continue hustling in every other way possible. I know I can do it and I will and it's literally that simple, because when you want something all you have to do is move out of your own way and let yourself have it and the rest will fall into place and from there let it all happen because everything happens for a reason.
Thank you for taking time out of your day to read this. I hope if anything you can learn from my stories and maybe even be inspired to start your own journey of happiness, remember: you are in ultimate control of your future! I will continue to update you in the future as well as write about a million other things. Also, please take a moment to check out my youtube channel @ColumbaeMarie & subscribe!
