american beauty.

Sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world I feel like I can’t take it, like my heart’s going to cave in.”
– American Beauty
Gosh I love that film.
Anyone who knows me personally, knows how much
I love that film.

A few weeks ago, a colleague of mine and I were talking about
 our respective careers.
I was going on about my lifelong dream to write for a living
and he was pretty much floored that someone with such
 a love affair with words
worked with numbers all day.
(Sometimes I’m floored myself).
When I asked him about his own ambitions, including
 whether or not he had any aspirations within our company
he explained that he once held a higher position
but stepped down
 as it affected his quality of life.
Even though he is making way less money now
his spirit is much happier.

I wasn’t surprised to hear that of course
but it’s what he said next that got me.
  It’s kind of like the American Beauty thing right?”
Yes!”, I replied.

Made my heart smile.

Happy weekend loves.
Wishing you all an abundance of beauty.
N, xx
