TRÈS CHIC

"Wander, expand your mind and see that the world
is larger than you think. And that your problems
are smaller than you know."


It's unbelievable how it's already 2018. Maybe as we grow older we become more aware of time, while also losing complete awareness too. A strange phenomenon really. We really notice it when time ticks over each year, and we really notice it when our age ticks over to a next one. Yet we completely lose track of where all the inbetween goes, because I guess life gets busier and sometimes we just get lost in it all. (Just don't forget that as we are growing up, our parents are growing old. Cherish your limited time with them.)

ROMANTICISATION

"Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me. 
'Cause we were just kids when we 
fell in love, not knowing what it was..." 
- Ed Sheeren (Perfect)


I love the unusual, the different, the unorthodox but it is a strange dichotomy that I am also a secret die hard romantic for the corny, cheesy stuff. Love is so commercialised these days that often young lovers break hearts in the search for something of silver screen dreams. When the infatuation dies off, you go off searching for a new high thinking something is wrong with what you had. But honey, nothing was wrong with what you had, what was wrong was you.

ATTENTION

“Trust and attention - these are the scarce
items in a post-scarcity world.” 
- Seth Godin


Really think about it. We live in a world where abundance is the norm. Abundance in food, in people, in opportunities... yet trust and attention are two rare things in this modern world. And for most of you, the first thing you think of is the trust and attention you receive from your (potential) boyfriends or girlfriends... of how difficult it is to form relationships where you are given an abundance of trust and attention, and it's true. But Seth Godin didn't say this in the context of only love. Dive deeper.

GLASS CEILINGS

"Teach your daughters to worry less about
fitting into glass slippers and more about
shattering glass ceilings."


Pretty photos draw you in, but the real value is in the words and its message.

If you want to make a difference you have to be bold. Do not suppress your opinions. Sure you might rub some people the wrong way but follow your instincts, if you are a good person at heart your opinion will be respected by the majority (because I would like to believe the majority are good).
