Peace of Mind

"A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms."

Last week, I got the chance to visit the Botanical Garden to see the Orchid Show taking place this year. Being only about 15minutes away from it, I really feel guilty for not taking advantage of going there more often. I mean, sometime all you really need is a long walk in the park to stop and smell the flowers. 

With so many great things happening as of lately, I'm over-filled with excitement, joy, and gratitude to everything and everyone beautiful in my life. 

I actually wore this outfit to Shun's birthday dinner a week ago, but I loved it so much that I didn't mind repeating it for this post. By now, you have probably seen me wear this blazer for the 5th time already, but I guess it goes to show how much I love it. Because the weather suddenly became really nice, I haven't had the chance to prepare my Spring wardrobe, so, I've been wearing a lot of old pieces that I still adore. 

I've worn this top a few times before (here, and here), but this is probably my most favorite way to wear it thus far. 

Spring is often considered a fresh start, but for me, it's more of a continuous process. You can grow and change without completely neglecting everything prior -- because everything good or bad that happens only makes you a stronger and smarter person. With so much going on and social media setting the pace for new standards of pretty and good, we often forget that we have a choice about who we are, and where we ultimately want to be and it's sad that some people settle for what's temporary. The same can be applied to fashion/style, trends come and go, and you can always try to keep up and copy as much as you'd like -- but style is long lasting and speaks about who you are as a person.  

Regardless, I personally believe that it's necessary to be aware of what's going on around you, but remain true to yourself as well. What's important is that you should always have a peace of mind. Be content with having enough, and happy when you feel like you have more than enough. 

I've also included some photos from the Orchid Show, because I really want to share with you guys how beautiful these flowers were. Enjoy xx
