Wisdom Wednesday

"Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you'll never ever have enough." --Oprah

"The Golden Hour" Look book, Planet Blue

Is it too late for a Wisdom Wednesday post? Never! I stumbled upon this quote a couple times earlier this week and took it as a sign that I needed to listen to it. It seems to me that this week, thus far, has been filled with a lot of "The grass is always greener" talk. From, "Oh, things could be better," to "I'd love to trade places with you!" I can't help but take a moment to snap myself back into reality and be thankful for where I am in my life at this moment in time and just embrace every part of it. Of course, we all have aspirations, and I, for one, am a full advocate of always, always striving for your dreams and never, ever settling. At the same time, I think it is important to take a moment every single day and say to yourself, "How lucky am I that this is my life? Very." Really, I do. I mean, even if things are awful and you desperately want things to change, don't forget how many people wouldn't wait a second to be where you are. Don't ever forget how lucky you are just to be here, wherever "here" is in your life. There's always room to grow and happiness is relative. If you want to be happy - be. How can you be happy with more, if you aren't happy with what you have now? Whatever comes next is always icing on the cake. What you have now is your cake. So, darlings, have your cake and eat it, too.  Of course, you don't have to tell me twice. You know how I love my cake.

Thanks to all my readers for bearing with me and my poor blogging schedule. I'm really trying to get back on track, because writing and hearing from you all really makes my day. I mean it. Whether I'm meeting you IRL at an event, getting a little tweet from you, or just reading your thoughtful comments on a recent post - I genuinely consider everything that has come with blogging to be such a wonderful part of my life. Friday's post is one you've missed - Food Friday, and next week's posts will be a couple more events, a little more wisdom, and finally, getting back to those outfit posts. I hope today's Wisdom Wednesday was enjoyable. And, as usual, don't be afraid to share some of your own with me below.
