Mai Style Pages







I have been reading “The Art of Happiness” by the Dalai Lama the past few days. Its extremely eye opening and the book in itself has bought me lots of happiness. I have not always been the happiest person, if anything I’ve been a pessimist for most of my life. And sometimes I feel down. For no reason, despite fighting it everyday and putting forth the effort to find happiness in everything I do. Sometimes this wind of sadness just hits me and I feel like a failure, bad about myself and everything negative in between that I can think about it. I don’t know why I do.  But last night I felt this way and instead of stewing in my funk like I usually do, I thought I try to change that. I picked up the book and only after a reading a few pages it changed my perception almost immediately.

The chapter I read about was about empathy. The best way you can feel empathy is by thinking about a certain situation in someones else shoes. So I did & after thinking about a bunch of different scenarios I came up with this. I am extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to write a blog, to style, to travel, to have eaten good food  among many (many many times over ) other amazing things. But most of all, I have an amazing family and a wonderful husband and a fat, cuddle-y, sweet fart-maker of a fur baby. Best of all, I got to spend the weekend with the two of them eating brunch. Why then should I be down?

Well that’s my rant and thats what I wore to brunch.

I hope everyone had a great day and the  lines are too bad at the mall!

    Love this. It’s so easy to focus on what we don’t have or like, but we really are already rich in love and in life. This lifted my afternoon spirits.
