The other night I was looking through some paper work, and amongst documents and receipts I found my journal from like 2009. In it I found a quote from PINK (I’m a huge fan!). She had this quote on her album cover (see below) and I wrote it in my journal because at the time it meant so much to me. I must say it’s one of my favorite quotes. I think sometimes we get so caught up in life, we stress our age and the things we have and don’t have… OMG I’m 37 and I’m not married yet, I wanted to have a family. We stress our position in society. We stress money, and we stress about other peoples problems.
I learned that if someone can’t do things for themselves, then you can’t fix them. You can only pray for them. I know this is a fashion blog however I also want to share with you guys some of my experiences. At my 37 years of age I had to fall down to realize so many things. The things that matter, the things I was doing wrong…. The energy I was missing out on.
One thing that will forever remain is that if we don’t have love as the center, ‘things will fall apart’. Society teaches us we need someone else so we can have some value, we need assets, luxury … but love teaches us that when we have the power to just be happy we can conquer anything. To be happy with YOURSELF is the greatest accomplishment. To love and to be loved in return is just the cherry on top of the ice cream. Hope you guys enjoy this look with one of my favorite pieces, LACE, omg tell me about these colors …
What do I know at 29?
I know that things “are what we seek, but love is beneath that. If love isn’t the foundation, then things will fall”
For even if they stand, they mean nothing.
I’ve had both and if given a chance to choose
Soberly — I choose love
Humbly —- I choose love
Wisely —- I choose love
