There were all these things I wanted to write about today and I've been bouncing back and forth between my emotions, my work, my personal life... Life can be so overwhelming, and I'm the master at magnifying the worry. But luckily, I can learn to be the master of my worry too. It was International Women's Day this past week and I was looking at quotes from all the women I admire, and one of them stuck with me. Audrey Hepburn, a lovely, amazingly, timelessly, elegant (sorry for all the adjectives, but they're needed) woman that was so effortlessly flawless in understanding what is important in life said:
"Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering- because you can't take it all in at once."
I read that and it really resonated so true with me, that I figured other people would probably relate. There is so much to live in life, so many things to be done, places to be seen, people to meet! So much in fact, that I will sometimes work myself up and stress that I'm not working hard enough, or if I'm not ready I'll miss out on opportunities, or I need to be preparing for the next huge thing. Life isn't always about understanding every event or action that occurs, or waiting for that one big break, or stressing that you won't be in the right place at the right time. Life is absolutely and positively happening this very second, and every second for that matter and if we try to analyze every detail of it, try to understand everything happening at once, well that's when we miss out on experiencing some truly beautiful, one of kind, real life living.
There's always time to remember all the things that happened, but you can't go back and relive the things you missed. This is a message for myself and for anyone reading this because I'm always trying to understand my surroundings, my life... Why things are the way they are.. And I have a very bad habit of trying to take on a million things at once... but there comes a time when life needs to simply be lived, enjoyed, celebrated one breath at a time. It's not about that one life-altering event- that moment will always stand out I guarantee it, but if all the little moments of simply living shined just as bright, life would be the most brilliantly glowing masterpiece.
I've been wanting to do a really easy look like this for a while. Just jeans, a thin white sweater, oversized denim jacket
And with that I say happy Weekend. I hope it brings some magic your way.
