Embroidered Green

Well, we are about to enter year 2017. I just can’t believe it. This past year has been filled with so much. Over all it was another year of learning, growing, and not one ounce of regret. There were some ups and downs as well, but it wasn’t anything I couldn’t handle. Everything that I experienced this year, good or bad was needed. I know in my heart that everything happens for a reason and life shall always go on no matter what the outcome may be. I also know that out of all the bad that has happen, I have come out a new person. I know not every story is the same, and ever experience will always be slightly different. People will come into our lives just to teach us something simple, and I find immense beauty in that.

This new year, I am going to take it upon myself to find the greater good in everyone, always have a peaceful heart, and kick unnecessary stress to the curb. There is nothing good about stress. It is bad for the heart, it can age you, and can really change your personality(not in a good way). I just want to always have a full heart and show positive light to people around me. That is something I have been personally working, which I know will take sometime.

It came to me a few months ago that I just need to be a much happier person. Don’t get me wrong I am a very energetic, positive person, and I do believe my light shines through. Many people have said this to me, but I will say that there is no such thing as too much light shining through. I believe there is always room for improving ones self.

The other day at work a customer came in that I recognized. She always comes in beaming ear to ear. I of course helped her and brought up her children asking how they are doing. She was so surprised I remembered her. At that moment I didn’t know what to even say. I was speechless. The only words that came to mind were…uh.. of course I do, in a happy cheery voice.

The first time she came in she had her two youngest boys with her. One in a stroller and the other one sitting next to her. Her son was extremely polite for a two-year old and he even asked me my name. There is more to this story, but you get the point. Something as simple as meeting a wonderful person turned into something so memorable. How could I forget a lady like this? You could just tell she was a superstar kind of mom that would lead her children by example. Now, I am definitely not ready to join the mommy world, but I do want to become a lot like that lady. Of course I want to be my own version of myself. I want to always throw a contagious smile at others, and not just because I’m at work. I want to have that contagious smile outside of work. I want my smile to carry onto others, and give them a reason to smile back.

I’m smiling right now because I feel all this green is a sign of goodluck. Green is energetic, loud, and bold. This outfit and green wall says it all. This Embroidered Sunscreen Blouse is a beauty. The embroidered detailing is so chic-ing gorgeous. I feel adding the gray top underneath added just the right amount of contrast really making that green pop.

    Beautiful post girl! Love this jacket and your resolutions are perfect!
    I love writing resolutions, especially on my blog, because they stay there for good you know? This way I feel like I have a constant reminder to keep track of what I promised myself to do.
    Your resolutions are amazing and I’m glad you see the year as a positive experience. The bad is good too 🙂
    Happy new year babe!

    Wow. I am totally challenged by your words- you can always shine more light. I want to take it upon myself to ask people I meet daily how they are doing. I agree with you about color green and this look looks good on you. Happy new year and have a great year!

    Everything about this post just makes me smile. The gorgeous embroidery is absolutely amazing but I am so impressed and inspired by your positive outlook! I loved the story about the mom because as a mom of 2 young children I can only hope to be such a ‘rockstar ‘ and lead by example . Thank you so much!
