I inform you all this to carry up one crucial query: with all the pieces occurring on the earth – particularly, Hurricane Harvey, which dominated U.S. media the previous week – what is appropriate to share on social media? I shared our journey fiasco on social media (personal account) and was advised that different folks have it more durable than me and I should not be upset about Cuba. Then, later, I shared a constructive submit about taking a second to actually cease and scent the roses, and was advised that having enjoyable is insensitive to people who find themselves coping with Harvey proper now. SO… how can or not it’s each methods, proper?!! Don’t submit one thing unhealthy, but additionally do not submit one thing good… and are both of those even appropriate?!
Personally, I believe it is a steadiness. It looks as if shutting down all the great or all the unhealthy in our personal lives might be not the reply, so the reply should lie someplace in between. When I share the unhealthy (anytime, not simply throughout a nationwide catastrophe), I preserve it in perspective. Our journey fiasco would upset anybody, certainly, however on the identical time, I solely discuss it from a spot of figuring out that it is actually a privileged drawback to have within the first place, and stay constructive even in that bummer second. When I share the great, I preserve that in perspective, too. Nobody desires to listen to from Smarty McHumbleBrag about how they’re having probably the most wonderful time ever, nationwide catastrophe or not. In different phrases… I expertise my feelings totally, share them in a respectful method, all whereas aiming to maintain it context. The key theme right here although: permitting your self your feelings!! Just as a result of another person is hurting does NOT imply you’ll be able to’t harm too, or that you simply should not have time. (Note: This is a a lot bigger subject that I’m going into depth in my book, however for now I needed to share this smaller story.)
As Hurricane Irma bears down on the Caribbean with record-setting winds, everyone seems to be just about panicking in Florida, and actually, it might be unhealthy. It could not hit us in any respect, however let me inform you if it does, even we lose all the pieces – please proceed having fun with yourselves. I imply it. Stop to savor the small issues, love on your loved ones, and preserve occurring journeys (and please, for the love, do not be like us and examine the DATE in your passport!!). And do not let anybody inform you that your spilled espresso, visitors jam or battle along with your partner is “not one thing to be upset about” as a result of these are your emotions and it is best to completely really feel them 100%. Respecting our fellow man, serving to them in instances of want (through catastrophe reduction charities for Houston and South Asia), and sending them our love is so necessary (what we’re placed on earth for, even), however these issues additionally do not imply it’s a must to ignore your personal emotions and circumstances – good or unhealthy.
Okay loves, I am stepping off my cleaning soap field, and getting again to repeatedly scheduled weblog content material. (Heart.) Lots of completely happy vogue “fluff” (as I prefer to name it!) to place a smile in your face and maybe an outfit thought into your closet.

This dress is outdated, so I gathered some aptly rainbow-ed apparel for all you fellow colour lovers beneath. Get your eyeballs prepared for a barrage of colourful Miami posts over the subsequent week! Excited to share them with you.
