The More Experiences I Collect the Better I’ve Lived
The blogosphere had me quite inspired this week. Everywhere I looked I saw colorful collars peeking out of fitted sweaters. Most notable were the looks I found on Nicole Guarascio’s site. Thought I would give it a try myself.
At one time, trying new things would have been too much work for me. I would have expected to somehow fail so I wouldn’t have even considered trying. Boo.
Now? I’m trying new things. And yes, today the new thing is a collar with a tucked in sweater (I should add that I live dangerously – so watch out). And I’m only kinda caring whether they work or not. But here’s how I see it now: The more experiences I can collect, no matter what they are, the better I’ve lived.
You cannot help but learn more as you take the world into your hands. Take it up reverently, for it is an old piece of clay, with millions of thumbprints on it. -John Updike
