I can’t believe its Friday. Seriously, this week went by fast. I hope you had a great week and accomplished a lot. This is a 3 day weekend and I know many of you will probably be heading out of town or doing something fun. I’m actually looking forward to to having this time to catch up on things.
Keeping your word
Its seems so trivial but its not. Keeping your word is one of the most important things that we can do as human beings. When you think about it, if someone tells you they will do something for you and then they don’t, doesn’t that piss you off? Why is that? Their not following through on the promise is only half of the actual disappointment. The other, and what I think is the most upsetting part, is the fact that when someone gives you their word or makes a promise to you, it creates a bond of trust. If not carried through, that trust is broken. Nothing good ever comes from that.
Last night, my kids had an argument over this very subject. Apparently, a few days ago my daughter made a commitment to her brother that she’d clean the kitchen on this particular night. She didn’t keep her word and he was understandably angry. I used this opportunity to help him understand why he was really upset. It wasn’t solely because she didn’t fulfill her end of the agreed upon deal, it was because he had put his trust in her that she would keep her word, and she let him down -thereby destroying that trust. Deep, I know. My point is, if you go around making empty promises to people, you are chipping away at the fibers of trust that weave us together as human beings. Then sadly, eventually you will lose trust in yourself. Keep your word, its that simple.
Now, on to the fashion…..
This outfit is an easy, relaxed denim vacation for the body. Its soft texture hugs my curves and gives me the feeling of being very important.
I wanted to keep the focal point of the dress so I paired these nude Gucci patent leather pumps and Dior handbag. The color lends a certain elegance but keeps it neutral and understated
I love fashion and really appreciate the opportunity to share all these great outfits with you. I hope you enjoyed today’s post.
