Wisdom Wednesday

"There are no mistakes. The events we bring upon ourselves, no matter how unpleasant, are necessary in order to learn what we need to learn; whatever steps we take, they’re necessary to reach the places we’ve chosen to go.” -- Richard Bach

Natalia Vodianova and Sean Combs by Annie Liebovitz for Vogue Feb 2010

If there's one thing I hate, it's when people say they regret past events. For some time now, I have adopted the mentality that everything happens for a reason, and no matter how unfavorable things may be, they happen so that we may learn a lesson. It is so much better for your health when you realize things are happening for you and not to you. So, the next time someone breaks your heart, or you didn't get something you wanted, just remember something so much better is in store for you. That's my wisdom for this Wednesday. Please do share yours below :)

  1. My pearls of wisdom would be 'Don't make him your priority when he only makes you his option.' I just wish I could abide by it!


  2. nice to sean combs in vogue thats a change

  3. Hey, I send you a message a while ago. I'm not sure what you needed. An illustration or a header or something. Did you figure things out?

  4. That's a great attitude to have! I try to think the same way (even if it's hard sometimes)

    That editorial is beautiful!

  5. I have to agree with you on this one doll. Obviously your past is a huge part of you and at one point you actually wanted to do what you said you regret. I believe that you shouldn't regret the past, just learn from it and use that for the decisions you make in the present and future.

    I really love the message above. It's such a lovely and moving message!!!


  6. Love this editorial!


  7. gorgeous photos!!! and i totally agree that things happen for a reason :) i am so happy with the way things have turned out for me and i know there will be challenges in the future but theres a TON of great things to look forward to as well! xoxo jillian:: cornflake dreams

  8. umm diddy is that you--pretty fresh! Thanks for the advice last week, I'm taking this one to heart too!

    p.s I should never look at your blog when I'm starving--Just saw those amazing street tacos, and Firestone sandwiches---are you trying to kill me??!?!

  9. I totally agree with your wisdom! Why waste time with regret? Every moment that passes is an opportunity to learn from!

    Also - really nice combination of quote/Leibovitz photo series and brief summary of your own. The combination of the three is very powerful when put together - so nice work!

  10. Amazing pics, where does this vogue edition come from? USA?

    Thanks for sharing!

  17. annie liebowitz is the queen of fashion photography for me.
    I hear you on what you say about not regretting the past events. People do that so much but who would they be without the past?


i love it when you whisper sweet nothings to me.
