Just want to point out that this is an awesome outfit...because I'm wearing my awesome pants, my awesome Oasap cap-toe shoes, and my new Awesome Cape-Sweater (or whatever this thing is called). Also...check out Oasap. these are not the only adorable shoes!!!
But moving on ;) Today it struck me that we as bloggers are always filling out personality question profiles, sharing pictures of how we spend our days, talking about the people and object we love...BUT we don't really spend too much time talking about our weaknesses or our bad moments. Now, clearly a style blog is not the place to bemoan Fate's ill gifts or spend pages of text talking about all the negatives in our personality or lives. But there's a certain median point, I think, where really getting to know each other and being part of a community should include being open and able to share/laugh about/discuss EVERY aspect of our personhood. Make sense?
So my thought for the day is...every strength we have has a flip-side weakness and vice versa. Think about it for a sec! Take me for example I'm very decided, dedicated, and determined, which has gotten me far in life--the flip side is, sometimes I overwhelm people with my forward-thinking and forward-moving or run myself into the ground with my own effort. I'm also very strong-minded so I think quickly and thoroughly and will stand up for what I believe--the flip side is that I can be stubborn and sometimes abrasive.
Or ponder the vice-versa. For example, one of my weaknesses is loving other people and wanting to make them happy so much that I let them walk all over me--but the flip side is that I don't hold grudges and am always willing to resolve difficulties with others. Another weakness of mine is being too academic, head-oriented, over-analytical, etc--but the flip side is that I think deeply and effectively about things and often have unique insights. Getting the drift of what I'm saying?
Anyways, I'd love to hear your thoughts on all of this. It's been so fun becoming part of the blogging community, and I definitely respect your opinions. And I'd love to continue getting to know you better :) If you feel like posting on the topic, link me up so I can make sure to read.

And then buy these Oasap cap toe heels. 'Cause they will seriously rock your world :)
