Emerald and Resolutions.
jacket, sweater, skirt, & shoes: thrifted, necklace: graduation gift from my momma!
Emerald was Pantone's color of the year for 2013. I'm just getting around to wearing it but I LOVE IT! I got that skirt and necklace above, and another sweater in emerald all within last week. I get a little obsessive, alright? It's just such a gorgeous color. I'll definitely be wearing it into the new year. And cheetah print. I'm on the hunt for some cheetah print booties. If you see anything for a decent price help a sista out!
At church yesterday, all of the speakers spoke about resolutions and how we can make goals that are attainable and worth doing. I know most of us want to lose those 10 pounds (or 25 ;) or save a little more money this year. But one speaker really changed my outlook on resolutions. He stated the questions, "Do we ever think about making goals of being more charitable or more kind to others? Do we make goals that are all about us or do we try to be more Christ-like and find ways to help others?" I know in the past I've only made resolutions that deal with me. This year, I want to make resolutions that involve finding ways to lift those around me. It's simple acts of kindness that make all the difference. A smile, a laugh, a hug, a text message. Those are all simple things that can make a huge difference. I hope we all can make resolutions for ourselves that make us better and also make resolutions that help our friends, family, and even strangers.
I feel like I should end this with an amen. So, AMEN!
