Being Your Own Success by Laura Spano
Everyone has their own vision of success. My vision of success grew from watching my parents devoting time and effort to my sister and I. They have taught us to work hard and follow our dreams. We have learned to love ourselves, to cultivate our self esteem because our strength comes from within through optimism and good will.
My success story began at the age of 25. I still remember the thrills and fear on my graduation day, a wonderful stage of my life. I am grateful to live in a modern society where women can evolve, study and have the freedom to go their own way.
I decided to follow my passion in Marketing and Communication and so I went back to school at the age of 27. There were doubts, moments when I did not believe in myself, but I have done it and I am happy because I listened to my heart and I chased my desire to evolve and change the path of my career in order to be more satisfied in life and in the future.
I met the love of my life in my twenties and even today, I can say that having my man by my side makes me feel happy and loved as the first day. To me this is the success of my life; I found a person who accepts me as I am and fills my days with authentic happiness, obviously in good and bad times.
At the moment, I am a woman at the beginning of her thirties and I have proudly spent eight years living abroad. I decided to leave my country, Italy and move to Germany to follow my love and to realise myself as a person, making this a unique experience. My success in this chapter of my life is the ability to adapt myself in another country, the tenacity not to give up, the desire to get involved and the desire to learn new things which I have done.
This is the force that celebrates the BYOS brand by Melissa Curry. Which is a new line of jewellery designed and created in Ireland to encourage and support our journey as women towards success. It all starts with self, belief, strength, opportunity, balance, love and happiness. Nothing is left to chance and nothing should be left to chance.
The collection has several pendants inspired by these motivators of confidence and encouragement made by different materials such as silver, gold, diamond and pearl; each of them are ready to give us qualities like serenity, joy, courage or happiness.
The success bar I wear is rose gold, subtle, modest and feminine. I define it as my little amulet that encourages me and it symbolizes my success and my inner strength. I personally love this bracelet just because it reminds me everyday of how lucky I am, the success I have had so far and the upcoming plans that give me the strength to see a bright future.
As a fashion blogger, I must admit it suits with everyday style. Because of its delicate form and colour, it can be worn to complete wonderful outfits, from casual to elegant ones.
I support the idea of encouraging women all over the world to believe in themselves and in their success, whether business or personal. We women have the right to choose and to improve our life. Believe in yourself and be brave, it is the best gift you deserve this Christmas. Thanks Melissa Curry, I wish you good luck with BYOS and a wonderful new year!
