Patience is a word that I find myself repeating these days, aided by those who love me and keep repeating to me “just have a little patience.” Easier said than done. Truth is, I have never been one with such virtue, and I am sure I am not the only one feeling like this. However, as I got older I have realized I am more “impatient” than I used to. Maybe is because now I know that time goes by so fast and we have only so much time granted in this world. Maybe is because I am just too ambitious, or maybe is because of all the flaunting display of success we see nowadays on social media. Forbes 30 under 30, OMG I think, I just didn’t make it. Suddenly, all of my unachieved dreams strike me in my face and I wonder, What happens when all of your hard work and sacrifices are just not enough? Then just keep going, I say to myself, holding with confidence one or two books I recently bought to make myself feel better. People tell me (again, loved ones) that I must concentrate on the things that I have actually achieved and perhaps I should. There is a phrase from T.S. Eliot that I read on Hillary Clinton’s latest book, “For us, there is only the trying. The rest is not our business.” To which she adds, “Get caught trying” as a life mantra. What a beautiful lesson!
I have been dying to style this ridiculous overprice Gucci socks. And no, no one needs these socks! Any funky cool pair will work. To be honest, I just got carried away by the excitement (I was in Paris) and the SA at the Gucci store that persuaded me of how chic and fashion these socks were. I complemented them with pointy sock boots and a somewhat short skirt so that they could only peek a little. The deconstructed blouse and the layering of necklaces gave a really nice touch.
