"The opposite of love is not hate, but indifference."
This statement has been on mind and heart for the past couple of weeks. Looking back on my life and the lives of those around me, I can't help but find this to be true. This statement has completely altered how I view my relationship with God, my husband, family, friends, and mere acquaintances. I've since been aware of guarding my heart from not just frustration or anger, but indifference. I think sometimes life's busyness can distract us to where we become complacent and indifferent towards the the things we once loved most. When we might notice a negative feeling towards something we're passionate about, it's a lot less noticeable and a lot more devastating when a feeling of indifference slips into our relationships, goals and passions. We start lacking communication, dedication, and begin to have an unwillingness to sacrifice time, effort, advice, and love. Josh and I have been talking about making 2013 the year we make our main focus relationships with each other and those around us. To not feel indifferent towards, but genuinely love everyone we encounter.
I also want to thank my dear readers for always reading, responding, and chiming in on posts like this. As much as I love fashion, what I love more is getting a chance to share what's on my heart and mind with folks around the world. That's pretty extraordinary in my opinion.
Oh, I finally got a sweater with a deer on it. My closet is happier now than it was before.
