Wisdom Wednesday

"I feel very adventurous. There are so many doors to be opened, and I'm not afraid to look behind them." -- Elizabeth Taylor

"Sheer Perfection" Look book, Planet Blue

It's been a long time coming, hasn't it, blogger buddies? I can't even tell you how many times I've wanted to crank out a post or two for you this week and last, but alas, sometimes time gets the better of us. As you know, last week I started my new job, so I've had to be much better about my time management. When you're waking up before the sun comes up and going to sleep before the hour hits the double digit mark (yes, that means my old grandma self goes to bed at 9:00 PM), finding time to update becomes increasingly harder. But, for me, writing has always been a form of release, and blogging has been both a much needed creative outlet and stress reliever. So, I hope you will all be patient with me these next few weeks, while I sort out my new schedule and adjust to a few changes.

Now, back to the point of this post. As you know, these last few weeks have been filled with a lot of change. And for me, change is very exciting. I strongly believe you don't experience growth (in any way, shape, or form), if things remain stagnant. If there are no challenges, there are no rewards. I am at a stage in my life where there are nothing but doors to open. Everything is brand new and it just feels like a world full of beginnings. And you know my philosophy about doors to be opened: simply put, I open them. A lot of this can be accredited to my inner curious cat, but even more can be attributed to my belief that in the end, I never want to look back and ask myself, "What if..." So, today's wisdom (albeit, very late in the day) is a reminder that within us all, there is an adventurer eager to make discoveries. In fact, let him or her run wild. Never let your fears weaken you, which is something my mom likes to tell me when I doubt myself. Because worst case scenario, if you don't like what is behind the door, just close it and open another one. Happy Wednesday, everyone!

P.S.  Don't think that I've forgotten -- the winner of the Generation Love giveaway will be announced shortly :)
