All Gifted

Hi loves :) Hope everyone had a great weekend! Loved all your comments on that fab Chanel-like embellished jacket. I will definitely style it for an upcoming fashion post soon! Today I spent the day in Chester, NJ with my family. We went to a cute little farm where they had everything from pumpkin & apple picking, to fresh baked good and hot apple cider and lots of little fun things for kids to do on the farm. I even climbed up a huge hill of stacked hay with my little sister :) Was fun! What did you guys do over the weekend? Now I'm unwinding and getting ready for bed and wanted to share this quote I came across earlier on, which I totally agree with.  

Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that?
We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves
We must believe that we are all gifted for something
and that this thing must be attained. 

- Marie Curie

The second we wake up, we start making choices, decisions - both long term and short term, that all effect our lives. We could be productive, happy and fabulous - or we could choose another, possibly less fulfilling way of life. You have the same chance of succeeding as the next person. It's all about applying yourself and never - ever, ever, ever, ever! - giving up. We are all amazing because we are here, and it's our decision if we choose to live our lives, or let our lives be dominated by negative things. So my beautiful readers, what way of life do you choose?

  9. Totally agree with this. Every time I start something new or step of my comfort zone I have so many moments where I think 'No I can't do this', every time I have to persevere and force myself to think 'I CAN do this', I achieve so much more when I've got a positive attitude.
