This outfit represents mine and Cody’s relationship in this time of our lives.
Life is a story… That we get to take part in both reading and writing!
We get to create who we want to be.
We get to watch life unfold.
Let’s enjoy every page!
What do you hope to “write” in this next chapter of your life?
This elegant holiday outfit represents the quiet and tranquil moments of Winter, as Christmas gently draws closer.
The softness and subtle excitement of the first snowfall. The subdued, inner cheer after holiday shopping has been completed and Christmas day is still around the corner. A moment where you curl up next to the fireplace, resting with a mug of hot chocolate, in celebration after accomplishing a long list of to-dos and to-buys in preparation for the festivities soon to begin.
An elegant look with deep colors embraces those feelings well. It’s cozy, it’s beautiful, it’s peaceful.
I do not believe that false “joy” and stagnant “hope” are the answer…But i do believe that happiness can be discovered in little things when you feel like it’s nowhere to be found. When we’re able to find true happiness, we gain power to free ourselves, both on an emotional level and in a way that allows us to more easily work towards our goals, which will set us free on a more tangible level.
I challenged myself at the beginning of this week to stop being lazy about my outfits just because i have nowhere to go, and instead start getting dressed up in clothes that make me feel good about myself that day.
I was surprised just how much more empowered i’ve been feeling with this simple task. By putting on clothes i love, and doing so for no apparent reason besides deciding i want to, i’ve also been putting on confidence.
What do you think? Will you try getting #AllDressedUp this week and see what it does for you?
I’m surprised at just how much more capable i feel as a blogger. I took a chance with this series, hoping it would lift my spirits some… And it did. I don’t feel incapable and stuck as i did back on day 1. I’m excited about the future of this blog!
