The old adage; “Sometimes you have to kiss many frogs before you find your prince,” isn’t only an expression related to persistence in finding a mate. I see it as a phrase that talks about how we should live life. I think it is good to dabble in life, to continue to explore, and to do so persistently. And if you should ever feel yourself stuck in a rut, just going through the motions, one of the best ways to break out is to stretch outside your comfort zone to “kiss a new frog”…try something new. Sometimes our comfort zone feels like the only safe place, and it is fine to rest there for a time, but if we don’t continue to grow, to experience, to learn, we begin to die. A part of us is always reaching, always moving, even without our consent or knowledge sometimes. So keep kissing frogs…experiencing newness, keeping life fresh.
I’m living the fairytale with some wonderful offerings from the first round of The Fairy Closet, a monthly event running from the 10th-30th of each month with a collection of fantasy themed items, including hair, clothes, poses, makeups, poses, and props from different designers. In fact…this entire post was created using only Fairy Closet finds, with the exception of the pose. Here is your taxi to Fairy Closet. Links below are direct to the designers’ stores, which are NOT just fantasy themed, so you can see their entire collection.
