You gotta have the bad days so you can love the good days more.
I saw this quote recently on the app We Heart It and couldn’t agree more. Currently I am going through a tough time with my family in which my dad got very ill. My dad has been a very special person in my life and has always been in my darkest moments. It is hard for me seeing him selfless and weak. I always ignored the bad days ahead of me and as a human, I think we all live forever. Some days are pretty good but I do not appreciate them as much. God has blessed me with so many things and talents, that unfortunately I don’t notice. This week I have learned the importance of gratitude. I used to whine at every little thing and lately I’ve been practicing to control that. Many times in life God will allow the storms so we could appreciate the rainbows. God created Winter so we could appreciate Spring time. While I was strolling around Design District last week, I encountered this beautiful restaurant with flowers outside. I appreciated it but not as much as I should have. It was a cloud-less and sunny day, and even though it was a pretty good day I did not love it. Right now, I am learning to love the simple things in life. The smell of coffee in the morning, the taste of my favorite croissant, the tunes of my favorite music, the smell of a candle. Good days are made of little acts of kindness and simple moments. What do you appreciate in life?
I appreciate nautical looks like this for Spring. Stripes continue to be a statement and overalls are still trending. I added this scarf to add more volume to the outfit. I enjoy dressing up and that for me makes a good day. Hope you enjoy your Friday!
