“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be” – Lao Tzu
Friends, I have been doing a lot of thinking lately. Maybe it’s because the older I get, the more I find myself looking within and trying to make a more conscious effort to be self-aware and to carry an attitude of gratitude despite the situations I may find myself in. Each day, I understand a little more that the external environment is always in a continuous cycle of change and there’s only so much I can control, and each day, I also accept that I am the constant in my environment. I am also learning that we all touch each other in some way or form, and nothing is ever by chance so to be genuine and compassionate needs to be a fundamental way of life. After all, kindness in words, action, and in giving, can touch people in profound ways which then cascades into a ripple effect of love.
In the end, what you see depends not only on what you look at, but also, on where you look from and simplicity, patience, and compassion are one of life’s greatest treasures. Yes?
The Pretty Coach Crossbody Bag
So moving on from reflections to a much lighter topic…..
Has anyone come across a Coach rose print crossbody bag that’s on sale, and simply pass it by? I think not, or in my case, I couldn’t pass up a good deal :). You see, I have a few coach purses that I paid full price for and these are still some of my favorite bags since they are still in pristine condition despite the fact that they are older than my daughter! You can then imagine my little yelp of glee when I saw this pretty coated canvas featuring an artful rose print sitting on the shelf and was discounted.
I love having versatile pieces in my wardrobe. This bag has come in handy a few times already, especially on the weekends when I am running a quick errand and want to carry only a few essentials with me. It also has an interchangeable strap so does that count as a win-win? I’ve linked similar coach bags below. xo Louise
Don’t over-complicate or over-think things. Life is too short and precious! Make the most of your time and always watch your thoughts.

You are such a great writer Louise! I love the Reflection!
Even if we’re not aware of it, sometimes just a smile can influence someone around us.
Love your positivity! Oh, and that bag is the cutest! I love messenger bags so much!
Thank you, Vesna! I am hoping to continue sharing some of my musings on this platform over time. I believe we are all here for a purpose and if I can leave crumbs of positivity along the way, then I am happy. Also didn’t know the crossbody bags were called messenger bags! How cute and I learned something new today :). Have a beautiful day. xo Louise
