BEST OF 2015

( )

I think my 2015 best nine on Instagram is not the true representation of the many milestones I had achieved for the year. I can't say that I've been living that perfect life of a beach bum but I can tell you that 2015 was pretty intense. It was the year where I left my bestest friends and family in Australia and started things from ground zero in Singapore. I had a difficult time maintaining relationships and getting back into the groove of things. I was very hard on myself, I felt the lowest and I just let all the negativity get to me. I'm just very thankful for my support system (my family, best friends and you!) Without you guys, I wouldn't have stepped out of my comfort zone to chase and finally live the dream.

2015 was also the year of spontaneity when it comes to traveling and pole dancing. I got to travel more and discover the beauty of South East Asia, and during my travels I started to take the free time to read more novels and also discover new music. Whenever I discovered something new I'd get very excited about it and I'd feel very inspired to create something new. That was how it spurred me to start competing in pole competitions. Towards the end of 2015 came the biggest surprise of it all, which was joining Redfoo and the Party Rock Crew. I got to experience what it was like to be a rockstar!

Let's just sum up the things I learned in 2015:

  1. Mental health comes first.
  2. It's ok to stand up for yourself. Even if it makes you uncomfortable.
  3. Keep good people around and hold on tight. It's no ok to keep nurturing relationships that don't make you happy/ a better person. 
  4. It's ok to feel like you're not where you'd like to be. Does anyone ever fully get to that place anyway?
  5. Comparing yourself and your journey to other peoples is extremely toxic and will get you nowhere.
  6. Learning how to enjoy your own company is so powerful.
  7. A little bit of delusion can be good when it comes to creativity. 
  8. It's not a bad thing to evolve and change faster or in different ways than people in your circle.
  9. Your feelings are valid simply because you felt them.
  10. In a new existence where everything and everyone is so fast, taking your time is actually the key.

Here's to an exciting year ahead. Remember to always be kind, gracious and thankful as it will go a very long way.

Fierce and Love,
