“I am simple, complex, generous, selfish, unattractive, beautiful, lazy, and driven.” ― Barbra Streisand
If you’re wondering how one person can be all of these things, you’ve not met me! I’m constantly pushing myself to be better than I was yesterday, aiming to reach higher and higher, and hungry for more. And then on an off day, I just take it easy and laze through the day, because… why not?
“Never did the world make a queen of a girl who hides in houses and dreams without traveling.” ― Roman Payne, The Wanderess
Half a planet away is just about right as this post is all about Seville in Spain, where we spent a few days living in the past. People often tell us not to live in the past, and of course, that’s not what I’m saying you should do – but there’s really no harm going back in time and seeing what life was like, and how far we’ve come today. If anything, I’d say this gives us a better perspective of what lies ahead.. unless the good old days meant you were royalty – then we’d all just choose to live in the past, wouldn’t we?
“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” ― Edith Sitwell
There’s just something so comforting about pulling on an oversized sweater, particularly if it’s extra chilly outside like it was on this day in Madrid. Now double that feeling if you’re in a hotel room that makes you feel like you’re very much at home. That’s just one way I can describe my experience at the NH Collection Madrid Palacio de Tepa.
“Go in peace my daughter. And remember that, in a world of ordinary mortals, you are a Wonder Woman.” ― Queen Hippolyte
That’s some pretty good advice from Queen Hippolyte, isn’t it? We’re often fighting battles, and for those of us who have a full-time job, a major part of our battles are within the confines of our workplaces. I’ve met many women who spend a good amount of their time building their careers, holding leadership roles in big organizations or setting up their own businesses. These women wear their capes loud and proud, and that’s just how it should be.
