Inspiration comes from everywhere if you’re open to it, but inspiration has to start from within. We all kind of know that, but in these very interesting times we live in to say the least, inspiration can be feel hard to come by and even harder to hold on to.

On this recent shoot for WOTF in Miami I reconnected with some wonderful people from the beginning of my career as model in the 90’s.
The Versace family were, and have always been, great supporters of mine and a great inspiration to me through their business.

I wanted to share these words, from writer Ralph Marston, with you that were passed along to me by the talented photographer, Danny Cardozo, because these word capture the essence and the spirit of our team that day.

“Let your attitude be based on possibilities, rather than dictated by problems. When things are not the way you’d like them to be, then take action and be different than the way things are.

When it’s difficult to be positive, that’s when being positive can make the biggest difference. Focus and discipline can profoundly improve things. Just because conditions are extremely challenging, doesn’t mean you have to be negative about them.

You have an opportunity to make a positive difference, and the best way to do that is to BE THE POSITIVE DIFFERENCE. Focus your energy on forging your way forward. Be thankful for the opportunity to be useful. Be the difference. See a better world, and work to bring that better world to life.

Be the difference, and make the positive difference that you’re here to make.”

Ralph Marston
