Andrea Blake's Awakening | Central - Utah, United States

  Shy and quiet. She would go about her day, chin-to-chest and eyes down; avoiding eye contact. This was many years ago, before modeling, before the photo shoots, outfits and events. Back then she was less colorful, traveled about dressed in all black. “I just didn’t want to be noticed,” she...

It’s early morning, though it’s quiet now, this is New York City and things could change in a flash. I take the time to ponder life, love and the pursuit of happiness; three things that mean the world to me. Sometime we forget that we are living a certain life that has a meaning and a purpose, so many never get to discover this about themselves so they remain in a kind of purgatory, unable to progress and mature. For those of us like this I would make a simple suggestion; do something you love and keep doing it. Through doing what you love you will find meaning and purpose. For Brittany Pennington, her decision to become a model brought positive changes, gave her life substance and reason. “I am more confident in myself and for once I really have a passion and love for what I do,” says the dark haired, tatted-up beauty.

Another one of those nights, ending a day where the clouds were out to play and the sun acted as chaperon, studiously standing watch over its billowy charges. They danced in the wind; huddled together to block the sun’s rays then broke apart letting the rays slip through to the earth below. In L.A. where the weather is the best thing about living there, as stated by our current angel, Nicole Sjoberg, I imagine days playing out and ending in a similar fashion regularly. It’s nights like these, the breeze is light and cool, its dark out but oddly illuminated, where you want to do more than just live, you want to ‘be’. You want to be more than just alive; you want the chance to just be… you.

The rain brought with it a measure of relief, the last few days the sun acted as if it had a score to settle with New York. New developments in life added to the heat, firing me up over possibilities of the future. I was certainly at a point in my life of immense consideration and contemplation, facing life-changing decisions that up till recently didn’t exist. Nevertheless I am joyful; apprehension at the unknown only feeds my daring spirit. I am joined by an angel who, by all accounts is excited about the future as well. “I am in a happy place,” our current angel Vendella states. “I feel fulfilled with my career and I feel like I am making all the right choices to ensure my success in the future.”
