Be the splash of colour you wish to see in the world.

Mahatma Gandhi once said "Be the change you wish to see in the world". I find this piece of advice to be one of the most accurate and perfect things ever said. I have no intention to adapt or alter it, however, I found myself thinking the title of this post just the other day.

Along with dropping, winter-like temperatures, the month of October brought along some sort of realisational melancholy: yet another year is finishing. Everyone is frowning upon one economic woe after another, and everyone is insanely busy. However, this is the time when we have to look inside ourselves rather than blame our shortcomings on others, and decide that it's us and only us that have the power to make ourselves happy. It's not easy, I know. I've been shrugging and explaining "I have a student budget" for a long time now, yet it's clear to me that it is unto us to make things different.

And I think it starts with our outlook on life. With the world around us, specifically, with small things that we can control. We can control the feeling our clothes give us, for instance, and I think the sure-fire way to go right now is with a splash of colour to remind us that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

And I'd like to thank Mr.Tommy Thon, in the name of the entire blogosphere (can anyone disagree?) for his beautiful and endlessly inspirational photographs, and for making accessible to us quite a number of shoe-gasmic experiences.
