“You need to try not to vocalise the things that bother you because then you perpetuate them even further. Focus on the good, focus on what feels good. Concentrate on what is good to you, concentrate on what nourishes your soul” – Said a very good friend of mine. I have been told all I do lately is complain, “I’m tired…” “I’m fat…” “work this, work that”. Which is completely true!!!?? It has been a very busy couple of months and most days I don’t know if I’m coming or going. A lot of changes have left me unsettled. Hopefully with a changed mind-set, things are going to go back to what I will call a “new normal”.
Amongst other things, this blog is my primary motivation to wake up every day. It’s my sacred space. I’ve always had a solution based mind-set, If I don’t like something in my life, I tackle it head on and fix it. I am constantly trying to improve myself, however I would be the first to admit that I haven’t been so great at that lately. For example the day we took these snaps, I realised my bra strap was showing in almost all the pictures, the HORROR!!!!!! I thought to myself… “babe, why didn’t you tell me? why didn’t this bra strap allow me to be great?” But then I realised, Nothing in this life of sin is perfect. I sure am not and never will be, and that’s okay. Everything I am not, makes me who I am. I will focus my energies on being good to the people around me, but most importantly being good and kinder to myself. One gets so caught up being self-involved and forgets to see just how blessed they are. So in this second quarter of the year, Goodness will be trending in my life.
A casual but not basic look for this post. It was an easy Saturday, so I went with a white long shirt from Cotton On and black ripped jeans from Mr Price. Heels are from Fashion express (now called the Fix) . I got this bag from one of my best friends. Shades are from Jays Jays and my accessories (incl. Earrings) are all from ALDO shoes.
