In The Fashionista's Closet: Maya's Words

I was going to title this post "No Words" because I don't really feel like talking right now....But I figured I would use some quotes from Maya Angelou to describe what I'm feeling.
“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” ~Maya Angelou

Hat: H&M
Sunglasse: Target
Earrings: Aldo
Dress: Marshalls
Bracelets: InPink
Shoes: New York & Co.

“Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.” ~Maya Angelou


I wish I didn't feel things so deeply, it's getting harder and harder to dust myself off and try again...
*Cue Aaliyah's "Try Again". (Even in sadness I am thinking of funny stuff!)


“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”  ~Maya Angelou


  I think the loss of possibilities is what makes me sad....I want to feel "flashlight-y" again...
(This was a description that someone used for me once and I loved it, I like the thought of being a light.)


Maybe tomorrow....

“My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.”  ~Maya Angelou

Love the pop of blue on your dress! So fun :) I'm sorry you've been feeling down, I have been feeling the same way lately. Leave it with God and move on, remember whatever He has for you is already yours and nobody can take it away :)
