Monday morning was a pleasant one, today.
I was sitting on my swing chair, sipping on my hot chocolate, Looking outside my apartment, at kids, middle-aged men and women walking.
Right then I got my eyes on a child with his nanny who I am guessing was out on a walk. He must be around three years old, as he walks past, I realise, he has trouble walking. He walks five steps and falls, get’s up and walks five more steps and falls, again gets up and falls after five steps yet again, and this is how he is walking throughout without a tear, without asking his nanny to hold him in her arms, and without holding her finger.
Made me realise how adults need to learn from the kids.
As we grow up, we perceive that failure tends to be more public than success and start fretting it.
I am sure, the kid that I saw this morning would be able to overcome his challenge of not being able to walk and might just win races one day. The fact that he was trying his best to overcome his failure with a smile says enough. Like Janet Fitch once said, “The phoenix must burn to emerge”.
Pardon me if I made you feel like you are reading a paragraph from a self-help/inspirational book, but this morning episode was on my mind, and I wanted to share it with you guys.
Let’s talk trend, When the runways had culottes all over, I thought they are going to be more of a fad than a staple. But then the store shelves were full of them making me realise that they have a staying power and will surely stick around for a few seasons. Since then I have had casual knits to evening alternatives.
This one is from Zara’s new winter collection. Keeps you warm and stylish both, which is rare for me because I am freezing all the time and end up wearing ten layers during winters, mostly.
Paired it up with a gorgeous cobalt blue blazer for contrast.
Have an inspirational week ahead, full of love, kindness and positivity!
