Okay, today is a bright, sunshiny weekend, and weekend post should be inspiring, no? Getting inspired should be an effortless part of everyday life, and I'm in awe of inspiring women 'round the globe.
"Ideals are like stars", general and politician Carl Schurz once said, "you will not succeed in touching them with your hands, but like the seafaring man on the ocean desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them, you reach your destiny."
This weekend I'm all into Kate White, the editor-in-chief of Cosmpolitan, and bestselling author of both fiction and non-fiction books. How did she do all that! Doesn't she also have 'only' 24 hours a day, just like the rest of us?
Luckily Kate White offers her brilliant advices on her very own website. Advices that maybe, or I should probably, follow wholeheartedly, when it comes to nurturing this secret passion on writing, even if it's only for private journaling, or let's say, for this blog :-)
And by the way, have you seen Kate White's weekend home, featured on Country Living? Boy, how I love the vibrant colours she picked for the interior. I'm particularly drawn to the lemony, Provence-inspired dining room. Says Kate: "We wanted that spirit in our home--the beautiful smells, the great food, the sensuousness of that life." Ohw, moi je dis "I'm home".
