Blushing Pink

The time has come for us to break out our shorts, midriffs, and bright colors; that's right people, Spring has sprung over here on the West Coast and I'm all for it. These pink shorts are actually years old but they were another one of those items that I became reacquainted with in my closet. Another great part is that they fit even better than from what I remember. I pulled them out because I wanted to add some color to my blog and why not do it with a bright color such as pink? I kept the rest of the outfit neutral so I could let the color speak for itself. My all time favorite jean jacket was just added just in case I felt a little breeze throughout the day. Oh, and the shoes were a must! Yay for espadrilles this Summer and lots of them!

Motivation Monday

I've always been one to follow my heart, wear it on my sleeve, believe the best in people, give things my all rather than live with regret. Call me a dreamer or a person full of spirit, naive, or what have you BUT I'd rather be called that than anything else. The truth is, I love the way I am. I love being the person that would rather do things to try them and say I tried then not because I'm afraid and always wonder "what if." Sure, this makes me vulnerable and it definitely puts myself out there for a lot of unknowns but I know that in my heart I'll be more content with that rather than living cautiously. Spirit over ego, ANY DAY.
The key to life is to not wait for the right moment to happen but instead make right now the right moment. If we keep waiting for everything to be how we want it to be or how we picture it, we'll be waiting a very long time. Not everything is going to be perfect and the moment that it starts to seem like everything is just right, it's not going to last forever. You see, life happens and the boat gets rocked and it's how you react to it and handle it is what counts. Love your life for what it is now. Accept the way things are now, roll with the punches, and know that if you're faith is greater than your doubt, happiness will follow. Take it for what it is and keep going. Keep stretching and keep reaching for greater, it'll come. Once you stop chasing the "perfect moment" you'll begin to live life with ease and the things that you've been wishing for will come when the time is right. Find peace in the life you live and you'll get to where you need to be.
