a moment

I had a solitary "ah-ha" moment in my car yesterday. We've heard it all before right, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," or "Smile because you never know who's watching," even better, "Be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." I mean, I could go on and on. Yet, all day, I saw the complete opposite. I saw rude people at the grocery store, impatient customers, even drivers yelling at each other out their windows. I mean, just ridiculousness, but I did have the kindness cashier I've ever seen. That's when it hit me. How many times do we hear all these things or we say, "oh, that's nice," or "I wish so and so would read these." But what about you, what about us. I'm guilty of it myself, so guilty. But in this moment, my eyes were opened and I was suddenly reminded of these "sayings" that actually have real truth behind them. I challenge us all to remind ourselves daily on how to treat others. I think that's enough life lessons for one day.

On to other things, how about this top? I snagged it during the Anthropologie summer tag sale a few weeks ago and I'm so glad I did. The colors are perfect, the fit is right up my alley, and it can float great from season to season. What else can you ask for in a shirt?

  4. I love this outfit and I love your aha moment haha it is so true !! Sometimes we just go through the motions and don't even realize we're not even paying attention to someone ! I always stop and try to pay attention to each person I come in contact with because when it's the other end and they're not paying attention to me I get irritated very quickly (those people on the phone while your trying to serve them are the worst).

    Anywho, you look lovely <3
