Minor warning: This might not be life important writing.
I wrote the text below, before I witnessed a horrifying traffic accident today. To begin with, I just wanted to share the picture above, the colors, the combination and in the end - my experience and value of 'intention'. I witnessed the accident right outside my windows from 4th floor. Heard the crash. It was terrible. Got fairly teary, dialing the number of an ambulance. Still feel shaken by it. After the chock, on my way back to work, I found my self wondering if I would actually be ok with the fact that I write a blog about stuff that aren't always or maybe or really, life important stuff...
I wrote the text below, in the morning sitting on my yoga mat, sipping my morning tea. Peacefully, all satisfied (as it was raining outside), all alive, all open to see where writing would carry me today.
...'Spring - news' in my humble closet. I've looked everywhere for a well made red wallet. And for years now. When I found this darling of a red Celine 'one' last summer, I knew I had to safe up for it. I felt guilty about wanting something that expensive, all of that jazz, but I've learned that 'desire' has to be taken seriously. It takes you to place's you would never have thought of 'your self'. In Feng Shui the philosophy is simple: Luxury and prosperity are attracted to place's that 'feel' safe. Money and wealth are attracted to people who treat it respectfully, with gratitude and appreciation. Money likes order. Structure and order. For some reason I choose the wallet in red, which I'm really happy about. Red is also known to be the Feng Shui fire element, I learned, which activates and energizes the positive flow of money into your wallet. So your wallet needs to be in order. Safe, right order. Never keep receipts in your wallet, as they are only a sign of spend money. Always keep a small amount of money in your wallet, that you don't spend, because my mom says so!
All some interesting thoughts right? I'm such a hippie when it comes to these things, I believe in 'intention', and the intention of order and safety is one of my favorites for the moment. Now, I rarely buy any new clothes, since I've been prioritizing growing my small business, bit for bit. But when it happens, I want the best quality so I can have it for many years.
I'm feeling a bit shy sharing this, since I don't like my blog to be stuffed with 'things' and clothes, but mostly share things that deeply moves me or inspire me. I'm just not so much into reading blogs about the stuff people buy, but regardless, decided I'd take the chance and share the meaning this one had to me. The escape of fashion is complex. Oh my. xo lu.
There's no conclusion yet. To my experience, thoughts or mixed feelings.
It might come...
