Rebirth



"Spring and "springtime" refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection, and regrowth."

The concept of regrowth and rejuvenation is one that has been swirling around my head for the past few months. 

This past weekend my car was broken into and some douche bag stole my camera (yes the brand new camera I got only one month ago). Initially, I was so upset and flabbergasted by this wondering "why does dumb shit like this keep happening to me?", but then I realized (after sulking for the whole weekend) that there are way worst thing that could happen to me. Last year this time, I had just come out the hospital after spending a month there for a ruptured appendix. Everyday above ground is truly a blessing and I really want to live my life remembering that no matter what happens to me. I will get my car fixed and get another camera but there is no other me and it could have been much worst. 

I don't really know why these things happen and I'm sure all of you have situations that make you wonder "why me?" but you must have rain to see a rainbow and you must go through winter to get to spring. This is only a minor set back (for you and for me). I am ready for my rebirth. 

Speaking of rebirth and spring, we had some amazing spring- like weather this weekend and I just had to take advantage. I wore this great floral print slip dress and lightweight trench to grab some brunch at Shaw's tavern with some of DC's fabulous bloggers. 

I'm really trying to give more meaningful content when I put up my blog post and I hope you all can appreciate it. Let me know what you think.

  1. Loved reading this post was very insightful. I saw the outfit on intsagram and had to take a look at the post. Yes the spring time marks the new year in nature where life begins. So true how each day we are above ground is a good day. Thank the Most High you weren't around while the theft was going on but what goes around comes around so woe to them for breaking in your car and stealing your camera.
