Are you there? Can you hear me? Can you hear what surrounds you?
Or… maybe you let the words pass by as if they were never said. It’s not that you don’t want to pay attention, it’s just that… sometimes your mind flies places, it wonders, letting sounds or actions go by as if they never existed. How many times did you listen? Are you aware of what’s going on around you right now?
As creatures who have the possibility of communicating on a superior level through both words and actions, we tend to take some things for granted. We say things we don’t mean and we are frightened to speak up the words that matter or maybe what we feel. And when it comes for us to listen to the others we often find ourselves not truly paying attention. We take the information but we don’t process it every time. We are sloppy. We pretend to care, but do we, really? Afraid of asking “what” because you missed something, you just nod and smile. It’s a game we play, pretending to hear, to care. Do you really think that the friend who told you that he/she was “OK” was truly alright? Didn’t you notice that something was on his/her mind? Were you too busy looking at your phone or at some random thing surrounding you to catch that? That someone who screamed for help through his actions. You didn’t catch that either. The stranger who might have been someone important in your life if only you would have heard them when they wanted to bound with you. Your parents when they tell you to take care. Your grandma when she tells you the story of her life. Can you hear them? Are you aware of what’s going on in your life? We are all deafened by our ignorance, by our own sphere we won’t escape.
Wake up. Listen. Can you hear it now?
All the earrings featured in this article are from Stradivarius and they came at an insanely approachable price. I love each and every single one of them. They are not too heavy, made from a comfortable material (as I, personally, did not developed any allergies), settled and bold at the same time. You’ve got everything you need in there. It’s these details that matter. A good pair of earrings can add that glow to the outfit and make it complete. Don’t underestimate the power of a good pair of earrings. I think it’s obvious why I feel in love with them.
