This week was on fast-forward and I sorta loved it! Work was extremely busy with just three days and I feel like I blinked and Friday’s here. Yay! With this week already wrapping up, I can’t wait to sport this ruffle trim blouse from Nordstrom next week at the office. I love the pinstripes and exaggerated ruffle trim paired with the simplicity of a classic oxford. This is my idea of an oxford!
Anyways, this week’s inspiration comes from an unforeseen place! Mack loves to go see movies! Since this past weekend was a long one, naturally we went to see two haha. On Saturday we saw Wonder Woman and on Sunday we saw the new Transformers. They were both great but what stuck with me was a quote I heard before the movie even began. We got there early (to pick the best seats, as you do) and during one of the pre-movie trailer commercials I heard this quote, “maybe our most extraordinary moments happen when we feel small.” Mack and I both looked at each other acknowledging SO MUCH YES to that quote!
Sadly, I can’t remember what the commercial was about but I am thankful for the reminder it offered me. As Mack and I both work so hard to achieve the life we want for our future family, simple words strung together like that remind us why we are grinding now and why it’s so important to do so. I am vowing to view moments when I feel uncomfortable, unsure or unconfident (aka “small”) as moments that aren’t negative but rather promote growth. With this shift in perspective, I am going into the weekend more grateful than ever at every opportunity that is before me! Even if that means waking up at 5 am and staying up late to be able to fit it all in.
I hope you have a great weekend! Thank you so much for stopping by today.
