My week, with Instagram

So I was a bit post light last week as I was in an incredibly intense period of decision making to do with my career - a decision that had been carefully thought out for the past 3 months. I can confirm that I made my decision and will be sharing the whole experience and reflection over the next week. I found though, throughout said intense period making decision, everything that should have pointed me in the right direction - did. Books came in the mail that I'd ordered weeks ago with the most un canny titles relative to my situation, opportunities were offered that came at just the right moments and articles were stumbled across with all the right advice. It was a very incredible experience and one I learnt a lot from. One of the articles I stumbled across was one I'd written for Possibly Maybe (not yet published) that talked about Steve Jobs and his advice on work and life - so with this weeks round up of Instagram photos and my rule of thumb with finding beauty in the small stuff and sharing my little life lessons here is this weeks lesson inspired by Steve Jobs.

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keeping looking until you find it. Don’t settle." - Steve Jobs 

So my advice? Don’t Settle. In love, or in life. Pursue your dreams, search for great relationships and always do what you love, and love what you do. 


  1. that bubble bath looks so nice! unfortunately, our bathtub is under constructing so i've been limited to showers... so im definitely envious

  2. I am so looking forward to what you landed on (and congratulations I'm sure!). I love those words of wisdom by Steve Jobs - they're incredibly inspirational. I stumbled across a great quote on Pinterest once... "the work you do while you procrastinate is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life"

  3. I love this quote from Steve Jobs as well. Although the reality is it's exhausting flitting between different career paths and jobs in order to find what you're truly satisfied with. What if you can't be 100% content with anything? anyway I hope you're really happy with your decision. good luck and please let us know your experiences with it :)


  4. Hello Dear. Thank you very much for such a lovely post and bday wishes x
    I absolutely agree with you, we shouldn't settle in any of our life areas. Sometimes is good to risk, change the job, house or even relationship if we are not feel happy ...
    p.s love the pic with legs xxxx and bath of course!!!!
    hugs from UK

  5. Instagram is completly addicting! I Love it.

  6. Hi dear, I hope that all the decision making goes well, I know what difficult things like that can be, you never know if you're making the right one. So true in the excellent quote that says 'don't settle'. Somehow when it comes to a career, that is something I am not willing to do. Thanks for replying, its a mission to gets Visas here in SA

  7. Am curious about your career decision! Love the post!

  8. Hi Anna, I hope you´ll decide right in the end and be satisfied with what you choose to do. Steve Jobs was a very wise man indeed. :) Thank you for your support, I appreciate it very much. Exam period was very stressful for me. I´m glad it´s almost over.
    xoxo Eve.h
