I’ve had this baby blue vintage jacket for a while now and have barely taken it out for a stroll but the mood-lifting colour of it and the Arnsdorf skirt convinced me that they are totally bright for each other. Never thought I’d ever wear blue and pink together again as an adolescent but the hues just make me smile.
I was hasty when I ordered this pink Arnsdorf skirt. It was meant to match the pink Arnsdorf top, seen here. But I didn’t realise that the skirt really wasn’t going to have any lining! Sometimes pieces are made for the runway and then altered for commercial purposes. But this skirt came as is! A sheer pink skirt wouldn’t be high on anyone’s lust-list, would it? But to my surprise, it has become the new best friend of all of my mini dresses that are too ashamed to be seen public with me. And how can anyone resist these ruffles?
Where: Stealing a kiss from the afternoon sun
OK I have a confession to make.
For a while now (lingering for a couple of years) I haven’t been loving my career as a vet. It was never my first love and it doesn’t fulfil me like fashion does. Many friends can attest to this, I used to be somewhat a little unhappy about my day job and would moan and groan about it. I know, such an ingrate!
But one day, when I was reading the Bible “Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.” from Psalm 51:12, I was instantly moved to tears. What a brat I’d been! The contrast between this amazing job God has given me versus my annoying dissatisfaction about the position sent me to my knees. I wept.
Thank God for snapping me out of it. I now go to work with a completely different view point, joyfully and willingly. I appreciate my colleagues, clients and their pets much more. I am finally able to see the countless blessings in my job. It was as if my eyes can finally see! When we think hard, there are great perks in all of our jobs that we ought to be grateful for.
I view life differently now too. Before, I was desperately hoping to get back into fashion but now, I find so much satisfaction and joy in my job, right here, right now. It’s as if a huge emotional boulder I’d been carrying for 6 years have finally been obliterated. So thankful. Can’t believe I’ve been blindly living in blessings.
