"Learn from yesterday, live for today"... Couldn't be more of a true statement. I bought this cuff from the local Rowe Boutique a couple months ago, and I wear it to remind myself this on a daily basis. The past is the past - never over analyze, over-think, or worry too much about it, because if you do, your life will pass right before your eyes. Learn from it and move on. Use it to create and build your future. That's what were all so focused on anyways, isn't it? We are all in a constant state of trying to better ourselves, our lives, over-achieving, and thinking of what our five year and ten year plans are, where we want to live next, what our next job will be, and the list goes on and on. Sometimes, we're so busy we forget to sit still and enjoy the present. That's my goal for this weekend. I'm going to stop worrying about what happened yesterday, what tomorrow will bring, and just be present and enjoy it.

This week has been insanely hectic, so much so that I didn't even have time to create a post yesterday! Sorry for the absence... I will do my best to keep up this week. Hopefully things slow down soon.

Isn't this necklace so gorgeous? I love the crystal detail (which is actually the clasp of the necklace). It's such a versatile piece... you can wear it like I am doing so here, double it up, or even wrap it around as a bracelet. It's not available on the Bella Beads Studio page right now, but it's for sale, so either message me or the owner (Kris) here! If you haven't already entered the giveaway for another gorgeous Bella Beads necklace, make sure you do so HERE!

I hope you're all having a great Wednesday!
