Ever since young I have always been a planner. It's an integral part of my life. I plan for things to go as planned. And when things deviate from the orginial plan, everything that I've penciled... ... disappear. That's when I'll recommence my planning and start from the infamous square one again. But through the process, I believe I'm still pretty positive.
However things began to change when babies come into my world. Babies they don't plan, I mean they can't and cannot set goals for themselves. I plan my day ahead but when they suddenly whine and scream, run a sudden fever, have the runs, I have to put all plans ahead in the backyard and make room immediately for what's going to happen ahead. Yes, I do try to have secondary plans in place however, with babies and young children unless we truly enjoy building and tearing the plans continously a few times daily - since the day I brought my baby home I have began to embrace that it is momentuous to live in the present.
These days I no longer wrestle with my inner self when things turn out completely different from my expectations. I had begun to find joy and comfort experiencing new things. In fact at times it's even therapeutic because at the end of the day I do learn alot more of myself. My limits, my fears, my strengths and it's boundaries. I do have to mentally push myself through it sometimes as i tend to fall back on my comfort zones when things get uncomfortable. So at the end of the long day I pat myself on the back that I had become a stronger and better person. It takes alot really, but a strong partner and family support is crucial. At the end, it's them that truly matters, yes?
The above photos were taken when I was in Korea and since K Pop is in, I decided to try the K Pop street wear! With my lovely friend's help, Lee Teng I tried on my first oversize checkered top with printed tights. I love the contrast of checks against the prints on the tights. I especially love the structure of the shirt as it allows the wearer to assume a broad shoulder look which then gives the illusion of a slimmer bottom. The oversize look pairing it with the printed tights and sneakers, I'm seriously adding that into my wardrobe. Because it's so comfortable I can just eat and run without appearing un trendy:) So whatever it may be, don't let your fears and unknown steer you away from the opportunity to learn and experience.
