How did I get here?
I’ve always wanted to visit London and I claimed in 2014 that I’d be going in 2015 no matter what. In early 2015, I was invited by the lovely people at BFM International Film Festival to premiere Growing Up Positive in London. And, I said, “What better way to spend my first time in London than supporting one of my film projects?” So, here I am. This trip was an example of how believing in yourself can make a difference and how to ‘Speak Your Dreams Into Existence.’
On my first day in London, I visited the National Portrait Gallery, Trafalgar Square, the London Eye, Westminster Abbey, Churchill’s War Room Exhibit, St James’ Park, etc. There are so many statues and stuff its crazy. I walked almost 6 miles but I truly enjoyed every step.
As I walked over the Westminster bridge and sat next to the London Eye, I thought about how I decided in 2014 that I’d visit London. I didn’t allow any excuses for myself. I committed to it and it happened. I’m always looking to learn from my experiences and this first trip to London has taught me five things:
- Decide to do something and do it.
- Speak about your commitment to the things you want in your life.
- Be grateful for all of your blessings.
- Enjoy your life as much as possible.
- Believe in Yourself, no matter what.
I will be posting more photos of my London trip on my instagram. On instagram, I am @superduperyasmin
