Wisdom Wednesday

"Many a false step is made by standing still." 

Earlier this year, while on a trip to visit friends in LA, I made a pit stop to Urban Outfitters and a little disposable camera caught my eye. "Fortune Camera" is what it was called - a random fortune printed on every shot. "That seems pretty cool," I said to myself, and straight to the checkout line I went. Well, fast forward to 10 months later and I finally got around to finishing up my camera and developing the film. There were some silly shots, some sad shots, and the walk down memory lane was an interesting one. Then, one fortune stopped me in my tracks: "Many a false step is made by standing still." I stopped and stared at the photo and thought about the past six months. If you've been wondering why my Wisdom Wednesdays have taken a halt in the last couple of months, the short answer is I was very much in a rut with every aspect of my life. It wasn't until the beginning of this month that everything finally started to fall into place again. And why is that, you might ask? Because I started moving again. And by that I mean I made a change to keep going. I stopped standing still and decided that it was time to get back into my old step and to focus on all the things that have made me happy. And now, we're only a week or so away from another new year. What a great time to stop standing still and to get moving. Why wait for 2013 to arrive? Just start moving now.

Happy Wednesday, everyone. It's good to be back. 


  1. It's good to see you back! Sometimes we need these pauses, but always keep on moving like the fortune implied. ;)

    p.s. Have you entered my Shopstyle Instagram contest yet?

  2. what a great post and it's so true. parts of 2012 was rough for me, but one thing i never stopped doing was living life. i was feeling down, but that didn't stop me from going out or taking trips or doing what i normally do, and i really believe having that sense of normalcy helped me get through it. anyway, glad you are out of your rut. some times we need that rut to see how truly blessed we are.

  3. Such a great fortune, and I am glad that you've been able to start moving!
