1. You are okay. You’re just a little stronger now.

Keep in mind that we’ve all made mistakes.  We’ve all made absolute fools of ourselves. But we’ve learned a lot from our bad choices, and even though there are some things we can never recover, and people who will never be sorry, we now know better for next time.  We now have more power to shape our future.

2. You are far more capable than you think.

Truth be told, there are two types of pain in life: pain that hurts you, and pain that grows you.  But when you learn from a difficult experience, they are one and the same.  Strength doesn’t come from what you can do.  It comes from overcoming the things you could not do before.  Tough situations build strong, successful people.  So no matter how much it hurts now, you have to hold your head up, grit your teeth, and take another step. 

3. The struggle is the path ad it leads to better days.

 You have to stop worrying, wondering, and doubting every step of the way.  Laugh at the confusion, live consciously in the moment, and enjoy your life as it unfolds – struggles and all.  You might not end up exactly where you intended to go, but you will eventually arrive precisely where you need to be.

4. Taking the next step is always worth it.

And that’s why the best thing you can do is to keep going.  There will be times when it seems like everything that could possibly go wrong is going wrong.  And you might feel like you will be stuck in this rut forever, but you won’t.  When you feel like quitting, remember that sometimes things have to go very wrong before they can be right.  Sometimes you have to go through the worst, to arrive at your best.

Prose and Poetry

I wish I was poetic and deep enough to find the words and have the ability to write a prose or a poem to match the place I took these pictures in but I am not… so I hope that a paragraph will suffice :) I went to Prose and Poetry in Shangrila for the La Tentation De Nina, an event to launch Nina Ricci’s newest Perfume :) I’ve seen this pastry place before so I knew I had to dress the part. I know it’s quite weird to see me don something like this but I hope you appreciate the change :)
