Wisdom Wednesday

"I'm on a pursuit of awesomeness. Excellence is the bare minimum." -- Kanye West

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley by Tom Munro for Harper’s Bazaar UK, Jan 2012

It's not often that you'll find me agreeing with the words that come out of Kanye's mouth. Admittedly,  I love his music (My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, anyone?). Nonetheless, the minute I read this quote, I saved it and knew it was something to remember. Aside from the fact that we should always strive for excellence, bringing in the notion that excellence is only the beginning gives a whole new meaning to goals. Now, I'm not saying that we need to be perfect. I think perfection and excellence are different. I am saying, however, that it's a good idea to never stop believing that you can do better. It doesn't matter what it is that you do. We shouldn't get comfortable and we shouldn't stop the humble hustle of daily life. Challenge yourself. Create goals. Attain dreams. It's all there and excellence is just the start. Happy Wednesday, everyone. As always, feel free to share your own wisdom down below.


  1. I really needed this, it made my day, thank you darling :)


  2. I agree with Cymone, above, this little post did make my day brighter-- knowing that dreams can only go as far as you take them, is my interpretation of it! Love the pics of Miss Rosie- and gawd I need my a dirty martini like that one!
