"I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours" -Henry David Thoreau

Nancy Simon - Fashion Designer

"As a teen, I always felt like I had this Universal assurance, a guidance. Then it went dark, for a number of years. It made me question who I was, why I was making these choices. There's something about flow you can't force; you have to wait for it to happen."

What happens when you feel like you're in a dark cloud? When you can't see where you are? 

This is a familiar feeling for anybody who's ever felt "stuck". Nancy's story is undoubtedly reassuring in that, even in your darkest moments, when everything seems to be completely motionless, your story is actually in its most critical moments.
