benchesnchandeliers 's Thoughts:

I read that the original Greek root for the word “care” means “distracting” and “soul-dividing.”
Quite a different perspective of “care” than the more positive, well known definition, I’d say.
Recently, I found myself falling victim to that kind of care— the stressful, consuming kind— too often.
My goals, my careers, my future— the list of “cares” goes on and on.

Fortunately, I was slapped with the backhand of reality and realized two simple truths:
1. I need to get over myself.
2. My abundance of “cares” is a result of my lack of faith. I need to increase the latter to decrease the other.

So as my boyfriend and I like to joke, I’ve been working on building myself a bridge,
so I can just GET OVER IT, whatever “it” may be. So far, my bridge is proving to be more like
the Golden Gate Bridge, but I’m learning to let go day by day.

This is also what makes me a “stylish sole”— not that I have any particular great style (my wallet prohibits me from dressing in the exact styles I fantasize over), but that my personal style reflects the condition of my soul. On a side note, that’s probably one of the reasons why I’m obsessed with all things maxi as of late.
There’s just nothing as simple, versatile and “careless” as an ankle-skimming dress for day or night.

“Getting over it” is definitely a work in progress, but as they say oh so dramatically in my favorite films,
“I’ll see you on the other side!”
