Have you ever really wanted something so badly, that you felt your heart tighten in anticipation and excitement, whilst at the same time, having no idea how to make said desire/thing a reality? Well I have. In fact, I feel like this quite often. Sometimes its for something small, like irrationally lusting for a 900 dollar pair of shoes (Oh, spare me your judgement, sensible, frugal shoppers). Sometimes it’s for much larger life goals, like choosing a difficult career path and finding success against all odds. While this longing feeling rushes over me often, the usual result is a gradual fade of an unfulfilled wish replaced by some other passing desire. Yet, once in a while, magic happens and seemingly unattainable dreams do come true.
So, why am I telling you this, and what does this have to do with this fabulous Banana Republic outfit? Well, I have had this kind of magic happen to me exactly two times in my life. The first time it happened was in relation to my career. I will save that story for another post, and share the most recent time, which happened when I was in this exact outfit.
If you follow me on Facebook, (and if you don’t, you really should… I post hilarious videos and adorable dogs pictures. Lets be friends!) you read a long post I wrote about how much it meant to me to see Adele at Madison Square Garden, front and center at a completely sold out show. The joy I felt went beyond listening to the music and the excitement of being able to partake in a such a privileged experience. It came from being a fitting reminder of how life can surprise us at unexpected moments if we are open to and aware of the opportunities around us. So, my point is this; never stop dreaming, or fighting for what you want. Enjoy every curveball and the astonishing moments. Oh, and make sure you wear something fabulous along the way.
