Wisdom Wednesday

"Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy." - Norman Vincent Peale 

Samantha Gradoville by Sean & Seng for POP S/S 2011

Last week, I was feeling a little down at work. I wasn't doing too well, and I had a long way to go before meeting my goals for the day. I thought to myself, "How am I going to make today happen?" I just happened to be glancing through our daily agenda book, when suddenly, my question was answered, as I read the above quote. My doubts washed away, the rest of the day unfolded beautifully, and my spirits were lifted. Needless to say, I exceeded my goals for the day. I went home and was inspired to make each Wednesday, "Wisdom Wednesday" on my blog. The middle of the week is sometimes the hardest. You've made it through Monday and Tuesday, but the weekend still seems far away, right? I thought we could all use a little push in our week, so what's a better way than an inspirational quote and beautiful photos to keep that engine running. So, I hope you will all enjoy a new weekly addition to my revamped blog! Share your wisdom with me below, and I'll feature a new one next week!


  1. i am a quoteaholic, therefore i love this new addition to your blog.

    two of my fav quotes are:

    "I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody." Bill Cosby

    "I enjoy the journey toward my goals as much as reaching them." Daily Word

  2. my wisdom would be "it's ok to look away from the bright side every now and then", I wrote a blog post about it...

  3. Great pictures!!! The third one is the best :-) I love the skirt

  4. Wow what an amazing editorial! Must have been some feat to get that elephant to behave...but sure does help elevate these ensembles to super chic status! Awww, Wisdom Wednesdays sounds like a lovely plan hun...can't wait to see what you come up with for next week!
