"DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY & DON'T LET OTHERS CONTROL YOUR HAPPINESS".

Has it ever taken you a little longer to achieve something than you would have liked? or it took you longer than what society expects of you? This could be for anything a task, a job or something personal. I've got my hand up sky high for this! I bring up this topic because as of yesterday I now have my license (My Red P's).. and I am so damn happy about it & proud of myself for reaching my goal! 

I've had people & friends a long way have their view or opinion about me not having my license for years.. "WHAT! you don't have your license, how do you even live"  or "It's so easy to drive, you should have your license" or  "I can't believe you still don't have your license". On a more positive note I've also had some really encouraging & positive views on it as well that I wish I focused on more in the beginning..

Of course everyone is going to have their own opinion or views about different things and that is totally okay but in beginning I let the negative remarks bother me about my license & make me feel bad about myself, rather then pushing them away & focusing on the positives & working toward my goal. It came to a point where I decided that the negative comments weren't doing me any good & yes it may have taken me longer than what society expects of me to obtain my license.. and now all I have to say is, so what, it's my journey & I will travel at what ever speed I like (of course sticking to the speed limit when driving.. hehe) 

At the end of the day all that mattered was how that I viewed it myself & the goals I set to get me to where I wanted to be and I feel so proud of myself for being where I am today & really thankful for those few who supported me & helped me get there too! Applying this attitude to any situation by only focusing on the positives (this includes positive & constructive criticism too), rather than focusing on the negatives will be a lot better for you & getting where you want to be. 

I thought I would end on a fashion note & keep it short & sweet ..everyone needs a Little White Dress (LWD) ..that's the opposite to the LBD but I think in summer every girl needs a LWD it's fresh & cool! especially this one by Finders Keepers with on trend cut outs!

Have you ever thought about how the ocean connects us all? Isn't it crazy/amazing to imagine the water at your local beach could have been all over the world.. Each grain of sand between your toes may have travelled from different parts of the world, through every sea on an adventure to find itself below your very feet..  It blows my mind & makes me feel a little more connected to this beautiful planet we live on.

Okay so enough mind blowing.. You know what I really love about the feeling of being by the sea is to be at the beach watching the sets flow
, listening to the waves crash, squishing my toes in the sand & seeing the sunshine sparkle over the wavy blue water.. it brings all of my senses alive & refreshes my mind to be by the sea. To be by the water also really encapsulates what Summer is to me (and I guess many others too).. whether it be walking down by the beach, relaxing by the pool or having a picnic at my local creek with friends & family ..that has to be one of the best things about Summer.. quality time with loved ones, spending some time in the sunshine & delicious summertime food all the time creating memories that last a lifetime.  

This post is an exciting collaboration & my competition entry with some of my favorite brands Roc Eyewear, August StreetPink Stitch (which was one of the very first brands I featured on my blog here) + The Luxe Nomad in the ultimate summer blogger competition with the theme of ‘Eclectic Roc and Roll Summer - A Summer style post by the water’. I shot this look on Four Mile beach on my recent trip to the beautifully tropical Port Douglas.
