Spotted & Mistakes
When I was out running errands earlier in the week, I popped into a secondhand-vintage-recycled clothing store in my neighborhood to see if there was anything I just couldn’t live without.
I spotted this vintage-ish, crocheted Chanel sweater-wrap-dress
At $75 it was a total steal but I left it on the rack for another lucky lady. Or fella. Considering my fabulous neighborhood.
Wish someone would spot me a lottery ticket and then maybe I could buy something
I also spotted a few photography-related things around the sphere:
Photography Tips for Getting Sharper Images <– We all could use that info, right? Not just bloggers, but everyone.
And this cute and stylish lavender Camera Bag that fits a lot but is still not too bulky or boring
You know it’s a mommy photographer who designed a bag that fits your camera, lenses, Macbook, and your baby stuff
I really don’t “need” any more camera bags, though. But I am always window shopping for that “maybe this is the best bag ever and I won’t need to ever buy another one” bag.
I spotted this Electro Man at Urban Outfitters
Probably the cutest way to plug in those 17 cords you’ve got going for you computer, monitor, power strip, cell phone charger, camera charger, lamp, etc. that are cluttered and in a big cord wad in the corner. We’ve all got them.
And I spotted this flask
I’d like to pour some Vanilla Baileys Slushie into it right about now
I also spotted something in my freezer that I was happy to remember
The last couple Deep Dish Double Chocolate Golden Grahams Smores Bars (Vegan & GF options) that I stashed in there.
I also spotted this Quote of the Day
1. What have you spotted lately? What’s on your weekend agenda?
2. What do you think of the the Quote of the Day: A mistake is simply another way of doing things
I’d like to think there are no mistakes in life. Simply alternative methods and ways of doing things.
Maybe not the ideal way, method, choice, path, decision, or circumstance…
Maybe not something we’d choose if the choice was ultimately ours…
Maybe we wouldn’t chose that same decision or action again if we had the opportunity for a do-over…
…But that there really aren’t mistakes in life; simply another way of doing things.
I need to remind myself of this when I am second guessing things, upset about the way something’s going down, or when I’m kicking myself for not making the “right” choice and making a “mistake” instead, or when I’m beating myself up over what I believe to have been a mistake, error in judgment, or choices that I realize I am not pleased with making.
I need to realize hey, it’s just the longer way around the barn, so to speak. Things will work out.
And in the meantime, try not to think of things as mistakes but rather as another or other ways of doing things. Just that mental shift can be a sanity saver, I’ve found.
P.S. Reminder to go spot the Bella Bars Giveaway going on
Have a great weekend!
