All those in favour of forgetting how long it’s been since I put up a blog post and instead focus on the pictures I have to share today say I!
Where do I begin? Yes, it’s been more than three months since I wrote to you, my internet peeps. I come bearing gifts – photos, little nuggets of love and wisdom I’ve collected during my online absence.
Accepting there’s a time for everything
It seems like all the time I’ve got right now wants to be spent at school, or working. Let me correct that, not really want but need. I’ve been working overtime and weekends just trying to get my head wrapped around this thing called architecture.
It’s hard work, and we’re all about breaking stereotypes so let’s just say I will probably keep working overtime a lot more in the near future. Until I complete my MBA of course, then I’ll focus on starting a business, and settle down.
Anyone know where I can buy an extra 24 hours a day?
That’s certainly not a new word on this site.
I have dreams that seem waaaaay out of my reach at times, and achievable during other times. I recently turned 28 and to be honest, I had to list down all my wins to put things in perspective and remember to be grateful for all that I have, and all that I’m working towards.
I’ve learnt to accept that some things in life take more time to show their benefits than others, and in the moments I feel tested, stretched beyond my limits, I’ve found that it’s so important to lean back, take a deep breath, pick up my journal and list what I’m grateful for. Writing down ideas that excite me and that I’d like to pursue has also been a great way to stay positive and focused.
I’ve also been polishing up my writing recently, reading loads of magazines and online journals to understand what makes text interesting to read. I’m a Contributing Writer at ThisIsEssential! It’s something I’m so grateful for, the ladies I’m working with are smart, independent women I look up to and admire. You absolutely must dash over to the site and read a few articles. Here’s one I wrote recently 🙂
I took these photos on my birthday recently in my favourite outfit right now – a copper velvet kimono from Forever 21, copper jumpsuit from H&M and gold block heels from Aldo.
