An angel stole my look!

Welcome lovely readers, 

Another week has passed and it has once again brought so many moments of gratitude. I am grateful for my family, my health, for work, for being able to assist those less fortunate and grateful to be able to make a difference in peoples lives. The comments on articles or posts I have written, and emails from readers mean so much to me, it feels like I am making a difference in a small way in somebody’s life.

I have encountered so many authentically amazing people on this journey of life, and that too is something I am eternally grateful for. It’s rare to come across individuals who are genuinely interested in giving back and helping each other. It's rare to find someone who doesn’t think: “What’s in it for me?”. And I have discovered so many who actually think (and say): “ I happy to help where I can.” , an army of angels I call them. An army who can uplift a dreary day, can give me inspiration when I feel like I don’t know which way to turn and will help me climb the ladder to better me. I may have mentioned this before, but I constantly feel like it needs to be reinforced. We are surrounded by envy, mistrust, unhappiness and individuals who are lost on a path and feel the need to drag others on that same doomed journey. I imagine that if this army spreads it’s positivity and inclusiveness, then we may start a constructive change. One where we all look at ourselves and our own shortfalls instead of focusing on those of others.

These ‘angels’ experience their own individual challenges in life, as we all do, but instead of berating life, it is looked at as an opportunity for self transformation. Challenges will always show up, it’s a constant in life, and so is change- and our attitude towards it will determine our outlook on life. It’s so much easier to traverse life with positivity and an awareness of our Creator and our transient roles on this earth. This supportive frame of mindset will neutralise all the back biting, the violence, the meanness and hate in our society- all appalling legacies to pass onto the next generation. 

“The most important journey you will take in your life will usually be the one of self transformation. Often, this is the scariest because it requires the greatest changes, in your life.” 

Today’s post is titled, ‘An angel stole my look!’ and it refers to a friend and fellow blogger who purchased the same dress as I did from local designer, and fellow angel, Human Image. Instead of being angry at her for buying the same piece, we decided to co-incide lookposts with this elegant sequin t-shirt dress. We have each decided to represent our individual styles instead of a ‘who wore it better’ theme. Since my style is varied and depends on my mood, I have opted to wear it for a morning brunch, over a white shirt and skinny jeans. This dress also works very well on its own for an evening out, with heels and leggings. I decided to go for an edgy, unconventional look, just to change it up a little bit.

Keep an eye on my social media to see who this mysterious angel is.
