Obsessions#25

“You stop thinking, when you stop breathing. Don’t be crass. You’re skulking. Women of your generation are graceless. It’s an affront to nature. Mediocre surgeons will see you and feel themselves wilting in your shadow. Do not shrink to console them. Do not look for friends here. You won’t find them. None of these people have the capacity to understand you. They never will. If you’re lucky one day when you’re old and shriveled like me, you’ll find a young doctor with little regard for anything but their craft. And you’ll train them, like I trained you. Until then, read a good book. You have greatness in you, Yang. Don’t disappoint”.

Take into consideration these words people. Sooner or later, your vanity will fade. Don’t waste your time calling yourselves successful. I don’t even know who you are, neither does anybody. Make it happen, hoping that there’s a little bit of greatness inside you.

 

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated failures. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”

 

We fall again and again. But then, all of a sudden, we are up, wiser and more persistent. We always fail but in the end you can call us prosperous.

Just remember you’re not Alice and it’s not Wonderland.

Do it with meraki or not at all!

It’s a fact I hate total denim looks. On reconsideration, if you have the perfect denim shirt you can go total denim without second thoughts. For me, the perfect denim shirt is oversized in the chest, yet the sleeves remain as long as it’s needed. As for the color, vintage blue sounds great.

Total denim looks are combined ideally with a pair of earrings,or bold lips and a black fur coat. Already thrilled!
