So, I essentially had a gift-card to TJMaxx burning a hole in my pocket so I HAD to go and buy something. After scouring around the store on a mission for spring attire, I failed to find anything that screamed my name. But then I remembered that TJMaxx gets Philosophy stock every now and then so I decided to check it out. Now usually I’m not into Philosophy bubble bath/shower gels because they are obnoxious bakery scents which I find are not what I want my bubble baths to smell like, I’d rather have something floral and feminine. And I am usually anti-fruity too because thats rather tween-y. But, I’ve been having a recent obsession with oranges, which is rather out of character because I rather despise orange juice, but whatever. Back to the point… a bubble bath spoke to me and it was Tangerine scented. The most fabulous tangerine smell every, just like jello. And in case that didn’t convince me, I was further swayed by what was written on the bottle (as most philosophy products have a block of writing on them kinda like vitamin water descriptions). Instead of being called Tangerine flavor it was actually called “begin again.” Rather fitting.
And it said the following:
“you took the right road and ended up in the wrong place. begin again. you reached the top of a mountain only to find yourself at the bottom of a new one. begin again. you dotted every “i” and forgot to cross your “t’s.” begin again. you loved with all of your heart and it got broken anyway. begin again. you won the race but they gave first place to someone else. begin again. you followed your north star and ended up at the south pole. begin again. you achieved a big dream. dream again.”
