friday’s thoughts {hope springs eternal}…

your value

it’s been a long time since i posted a thoughtful friday contemplation, but this one seemed extra pertinent given the week i’ve had…

never have the words “when one door closes, another opens” meant so much to me…

i won’t dwell on the beginnings to my week, but suffice to say fortunes have been reversed with a positive ending…

today i met with a top style director for one of the uk’s most respected interiors magazines…

getting meetings like this is akin to pulling a hen’s tooth whilst it whistles dixie from a distant rooftop, so i was beyond appreciative of the opportunity…

but regardless of where this meeting may or may not lead to, by far the most encouraging outcome today was the feeling of being validated…

for, whilst the inability of others to see your worth does not diminish your value, your sense of self worth can be exponentially heightened when you find that somebody who does!

the lady i met with today was one with vision & intellect: somebody who recognised that life experience & an alternative career path can actually be an asset & that a fresh perspective doesn’t necessarily have to come from the freshest {read: youngest} set of eyes…

& this lady reinforced for me something that i already knew to be true: the notion that believing that the dots will connect really does have wings…

& that, my friends, feels great!

happy friday all…

  1. Not sure how your week started but one thing’s for sure, when it comes to interior design, maturity and life experience are very valuable assets. Not many people want to put their homes in the hands of a twenty five year old. I loved interiors at that age but was nowhere near ready to be responsible for a whole project. The magazine lady sounds like she’s smart enough to recognise that. Pity the fool that isn’t. Triciax

  2. I’m so pleased for you and no matter what comes of the experience, that positivity is just priceless. I do sometimes wonder myself if I’m too old for this game (whatever that game is) but there are times when I know the wisdom gained from experience is so so valuable! You are a star in my eyes, hun 😉 xxx

    • thank you love! it’s a funny ol’ game indeed! there are so many of us oldies though, i think it’s a pre-purple rinse uprising!

  3. I really appreciate this post, Sue. There really is no substitute for life experience. “The lady I met with today was one with vision & intellect: somebody who recognised that life experience & an alternative career path can actually be an asset & that a fresh perspective doesn’t necessarily have to come from the freshest {read: youngest} set of eyes…” I couldn’t agree more and I’m trying to embrace this sentiment everyday. In the end, not all career paths are straight.

i'd love to hear your thoughts...
