I can’t control the weather, but can most certainly preside over my attitude and general outlook on it, and of course, life in general. I wore this look for 10 straight hours, and by the time I got home, the overcast skies lent a cloudy halo over my photoshoot plans, but the show must go on! If I could determine the weather, and pick the perfect day, it would be sunny skies, 80 degrees, and no humidity, every single day. But then again, would I truly appreciate it, if every day was as I wanted it to be? Weather aside, we can’t always get what we want, but that’s not an excuse to not work hard and persevere regardless.
Sometimes it exhausts more energy to push yourself to do what lies ahead, than the actual task itself would take up. I’m trying to be better about getting right to the task at hand, with minimal procrastinating in the process, even if it means venturing out to take some photos when rain is eminent.
My new mantra is to cut back on the amount of activities and tasks that I fling at myself at 90 miles an hour, in order to focus better, prioritize, bury my head and get to work. I’m also going to be better at saying no to anything that doesn’t feel like a good fit for me, and that is both literally and figuratively. Thinking about this and looking at my clothing in this look makes me realize that with the exception of the bag, everything that I’m wearing has survived for years through countless purges and re-organizing of my belongings. Maybe it’s a sign that, without knowing it, I’ve been on this path along, right? Or simply put, maybe I just know what I like, and will wear, and stick to it!
