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…

friday’s thoughts…

 

so, i did have this wonderful little post lined up for today all about signature style, what it is & why it’s important…

but then i went and viewed 9 rental properties and signed up at 7 different agencies & i’m officially done!

so i leave you instead with somebody else’s wise words which feel particularly apt to bear in mind whilst looking for that elusive perfect rental property!

happy friday all… here’s hoping for some sunshine!
