Attachments

There’s something truly gorgeous about a beautifully-tied ribbon bow, I think. Someone with a few over-sensitive ideas about neatness, like myself, can spend a ridiculous amount of time fussing over keeping the loops of a bow equal, and making it look as pretty as it can.

 

I LOVE the ribbons on these shoes, but when admiring them and especially the detail at the front of the shoes, and trying to think how to best show them off,  they got me to thinking of attachments, how we bind ourselves closely to things, and others to us.

 

Life moves, and moves us with it. Well, if we are wise we move with life and not try to go against it.  Some things cannot be avoided, but with clear focus on where we are heading, and a lightness of heart, beauty can be find in even the darkest moments.

 

2019 seems to be hurtling towards the end of its time, and I can honestly say that this year has been one full of obstacles, and changes. Some have been really hard, but all have taught me something about myself. Some links have been unfastened completely, some tied tighter, and then there are those attachments which have been changed in nature, but re-bound with a different, but equally beautiful bow.

 

Nothing remains as it was. The nature of the passing of time is that all things change. This is not something to be mourned, because sometimes they evolve into something even more worthy.

 

That said… for now… just enjoy these gorgeous new Morgane Ribbon Heels from Gos… out now at  Fameshed, shown off perfectly with one of the Bedeviled pose from Gingerfish, and complemented with lingerie from Erratic.

Happiness

Flora

We have suddenly been graced with warm weather here in the UK. What a wonderful thing it is to stand outside and feel the sunshine warm my skin. That sensation of the warmth seeping through to my very bones is how life feels for me right now.

I stood outside my door earlier, mug of tea in one hand, and watched my dogs exploring the garden. The older one flopped in a heap, happy to soak up the sun. The younger was happy to furtle through the soil with his nose. It was one of those moments to store away as happy memories… a frozen moment of peace and calm.

I don’t know if it’s the actual sunshine brightening my thoughts and day, or if its warmth has been reflected and magnified by the happiness in which I find my days soaked at the moment… but…. life… is… good.

Yes, I still have things I am dealing with… and it’s true that the past week has brought many challenges, but how much lighter these trials seem when my heart is floating.

This is what I am trying to do: cast off the hardships; forget the wounds and insecurities, and steep myself in the positive glow of happiness and love.

Hoping that happiness and warmth finds you all! ❤
