Short Post: In Charge and In Control + Giveaway Winner

Oftentimes, when things become unpredictable, we tend to lose control over our lives. We swerve and curve in different directions and we lose our sense of path. We lose control on the steering wheel taking you to unknown paths and unknown curves. To most people, this may be a good thing; going to a direction that is not within your itinerary. But to others, it is a distraction. 

In my honest opinion, I find it a distraction. I always want to take charge and be in control of my life. This is why sometimes when opportunities I did not expect come, I have no idea what to do. I consider so many things so I end up missing those anyway.  I have lost a lot of probably good opportunities. Sometimes I think that maybe I think things too much. I should probably let loose and allow life to take me where it wants to take me. 
Hat: Peaches on Top | Top: Jellybean | Maxi Skirt: Forever21 | Flats: Debenham's

The heat is really getting into my head and I can't think straight these past few days. I just want to go to the beach and lounge under the sun! And I am doing just that this weekend! I promise to take good pictures on my trip so you can all drool and envy where I've been! haha! :)

  8. I'm a go-getter kind of girl when new opportunities come. And yeah, I tend to get lost sometimes, but glad that I always find my way back, eventually. But then I'd have to go through those rocky roads and would often fall and get wounded. I guess I can be a bit impulsive as well with my decisions and someone actually told me that I might still be fine with it because I haven't hit rock bottom yet. Grrr.

    I need to be more careful with the decisions I make. Maybe sometimes I need not to welcome some things in my life no matter how good they may seem to be.

    Anyway, love the outfit! Very summer-y ang feel. The bangles look really nice and love the floral top. :)

    1. Life is really a mystery. Even if we welcome new opportunities you never really know if they will be good for you or not until you experience it. It then makes everything sooo confusing! I think what we can do is just think carefully and decide whether it will do our future any good.

      Thank you, Gellie!

  15. There really are those times when some things do not go as planned, we get into something we did not expect. Sometimes goood things, sometimes bad. And just like you, I easily get distracted. I wish there's a way to prevent things which are not part of the plan to stop from going through our ways. But that is not possible. i guess we really just have to accept that there are things we cannot control. If ever we miss a good chance because we do not know how to face it or what to do with it, the best thing to do is accept it and stay positive, chances are, might not be the best for us!

    I love your skirt! So pretty the color!

    1. I agree! Even if there are missed opportunities, maybe God has a different plan, right? We just have to accept that those opportunities may not be meant for us and there will be something bigger and better in store for us.
