Gratitude

How often do you take time to reflect? To give thanks? To live in the moment?

There are so many things we take for granted out there. It’s important to stop and look back and celebrate the good and learn from the bad. I myself am not the best at celebrating the good small things. It’s not because I’m not proud of my smaller achievements it’s just that  I tend to feel like if you get stuck up on the little things it’ll distracts from the bigger picture.

Then there’s this…

“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”

Robert Brault

That quote kind of gives me chills down my spine. What if I’ve missed all my big moments because I thought they were the little ones?

Well there’s no point in dwelling on the ‘what ifs’. So that said, I have decided to make more of an effort to stop and celebrate the moment.

Don’t get me wrong, I am more than extremely grateful for everything that happens in my life. I just don’t practice gratitude. In my words and actions, I don’t perform acts of gratitude. Whether it’s celebrating life or paying it forward I think it’s important to ACTIVELY perform acts of gratitude daily.

I came across this quote and thought this has to be a better way of living:

“I truly believe we can either see the connections, celebrate them, and express gratitude for our blessings, or we can see life as a string of coincidences that have no meaning or connection. For me, I’m going to believe in miracles, celebrate life, rejoice in the views of eternity, and hope my choices will create a positive ripple effect in the lives of others. This is my choice.” Mike Ericksen

 So cheers to the little things. 

About the Look

A winning office look for me has 3 elements:

1. It’s not obviously corporate but still professional 

2. Comfortable heels

3.  Functional

This is exactly what I try to go for with the looks I style for the blog. This is one of those that hit the nail on the head. You can easily go for a lunch in this look as well as strut around the office.

I’m wearing this amazing poncho like top from my sisters collection Doux Regal Couture. I like the boxy feel of it and it helps that it’s very warm for the winter.

As much as I love to rock a sexy heel, a comfortable one will always win for me :). The midi heel is perfect for exactly that.

Let me know what you think..
