Uninspired

LifeSeerlee ArcherComment

It's easy to get uninspired. 

It's easy to develop a state of complacency. 

Even more, it's easy to get stuck there. 

I blame the weather. 

I blame my surroundings. 

I blame my bank account. 

I blame external factors. 

But if i'm honest with myself;

I know that I live in a world far too big to be uninspired. 

I know that there are people I fail to communicate with. 

I know that there are streets, local restaurants and museums, that remain unknown to me. 

I know that I haven't seen it all. 

It's not that I'm not allowed to feel uninspired or complacent, it's just that I'm not allowing myself to stay there.

Easy

Nothing worth having comes easy, so when I find an outfit that comes together in a pinch, I'm pretty grateful. This grey tunic is a winner in my books, the length is great at separating it from a simple long sleeve shirt. Also these shoes??? Such an excellent piece to add to my wardrobe, because they can instantly elevate my look.

However, as much as I love easy, it's important to remember that what is truly valuable, requires sacrifice. Don't wish for something you aren't willing to work for. But at the same time don't neglect those shoes you've been eyeing for a month, or that dress you've been dying to try on. And don't shy out from cooking that giant turkey yourself, or applying for a new job, or asking your neighbour out on a date. Because sometimes, we are gifted with a grace that makes easy oh so possible. 

Be willing to work hard for what you want in life, and be pleasantly surprised, when grace allows some of your goals to come easier than others. 

Yours truly,

Seerlee

White and Necessary

The white blouse. 

A staple for many, despite gender, style or budget. 

The one shirt that remains constant despite it's inability to withstand the toughest of stains. 

Once upon a time it was strictly worn to the office, however it has pushed it's way to the forefront of our wardrobes. 

At one point only being chosen on Monday - Friday, it is now gladly picked on a Saturday, sported with sneakers. 

Both classic and necessary. 

Significant at every age, for any event. 

In fact I think the white blouse, is kind of like myself.

We are all born, crisp, clean and pure - like a white button up.

The white button up, faces it's own challenges, like ketchup stains from lunch, and sweat stains caused from running around the office all day.

I am no different. I too get tarnished. 

Maybe not from food stains, but disappointment, and harsh words can often have the same effect on me.

However, just the like the white button up, although stains may plague my existence, I am still loved. 

And all I must do, is lift those stains that so desperately try to cling. 

Although Tide To-Go may not be my weapon of choice, I think confidence and grace may be a great start.
