Taking Chances

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

What I wore: coat borrowed from my aunt • dress Soiree • boots Forever 21
bag Victoria's Secret • tights New Look • ear muffs 3 coins • bowler hat SM Kids
gloves borrowed from my aunt • polka dot jacket vintage
Most of us associate winter with dark colors for the reason that it is gloomy and cold. But I took another route. I made it fun and reminiscent of spring. It was a bold leap, actually, taking a very colorful number in a sea of black, white and gray coats. But I didn't mind because I was in very happy disposition.

Japan was a very happy place for me. It was a dream come true. We did not expect that we could actually visit the place for fifteen days. We did not expect that we will be able to endure the freezing climate and financially sustain ourselves for that long. But we took the risk.

Everything was not planned but it all fell into place in the perfect time. We applied for visa impulsively but asked God for guidance, without thinking that we could make it. We hoped and prayed but never really assumed that we will be granted such an amazing blessing. Even our schedules were all in sync and our school/work load were accomplished in time.

Because of this experience, I realized that it's all about hoping, believing, praying and taking chances. There's nothing wrong in trying. At least you did. That's why I vowed that this year will be full of risks and new experiences. That's why I can't wait to share the monthly challenges my Virus workmates and I will be doing.

Anyway, here is the winner of my Capital Cities giveaway:

Due to my busy schedule, I will be shipping the prize late this month or early March. I apologize for the delay. :( Congratulations again!

Have a great day everyone!
