Good morning Lovelies!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
I had a very interesting conversation with my sister over the weekend. After having her daughter in the hospital for weeks and still very much having to deal with the aftermath of her illness she asked if I thought she and her family have had to endure more than most. I immediately and almost emphatically answered 'no!'. While she and her family have had a ton to deal with over the years, what I reminded her is that everyone has their things, it is how we handle and learn from each and every experience. She agreed, then asked the question, why do some people learn and others continue to make the same mistakes over and over almost refusing to learn the lesson. To that I have no answer. I believe most people rise to the occasion when a monkey wrench is thrown in their plans and things don't go as intended, and maybe when we see others continuing to create chaos and not learn, it is those around them that are learning the lesson. I have found that when things happen and you need people, you truly find out who your friends are. That being said, instead of getting angry at people who may not show up when you need them, self reflect and ask yourself if maybe you have not been there when others have needed you. Whether you are dealing with a child who is sick or has special needs, a divorce, a cheating spouse, a miscarriage, substance abuse or mental health issues, money turmoil, etc, what we need to remind ourselves is that everyone has something going on and we never know what anyone else is dealing with on a day to day basis.
Onto this look, white is the color of purity and means kindness. This time of year I find myself so drawn to white in any form, pants, a dress or in this case a gorgeous white lace top. White is believed to help clear clutter and obstacles, start fresh beginnings, bring about mental clarity and purification of thoughts, so it seems fitting to want to be cloaked in white during Spring and Summer.
