So in most parts of the country, September usually means that Fall is around the corner. Cooler weather, the leaves start to change colors, you can bust out your “winter” clothes- boots, sweaters, hats. All the GOOD stuff!
Growing up in Minnesota, Fall tends to be everyone’s favorite time of year. It’s no longer hot and humid, and it’s just before you start to literally freeze your ass off. It’s the perfect season! And god, I miss seeing the leaves change.
However, in California, September is still H-O-T! Don’t get me wrong, I love the beach, a good pool day, and going for a hike in 80 degree weather. But, I will say, I’m getting sick of my summer clothes and wearing the same things every week. My fashion creativity has hit a lull.
I tend to stay inside the lines, if you know what I mean. Anyone else? I mean, I have my ways of doing things: I like particular foods (and hate others), I only do my hair about three different ways, I have a certain style I tend to lean to most- comfortability. Nothing wrong with that, right? Well no, but I think it’s good to sometimes push ourselves a little more. Pushing ourselves a little more than we want to can lead to awesome things.
I’ve learned so much from reading this book and it’s truly been helpful to pull me out of my funk after losing my job. One of the things I have been working on is grabbing my life by the horns and making shit happen for myself. It’s easy to be negative, passive, and dismissive. But those things won’t lead you to a positive, happy life where dreams come true.
Well, I figured after my last post, where I got real about my current life situation (and losing my job), now is the right time to continue the journey of being transparent, honest and share my struggle of anxiety with you. So many people resonated with my Life Transitions post, and I received so many sweet/amazing messages from people, I hope this post will do the same and inspire someone out there.
(Plus, we’re going to talk for a quick second about this jumpsuit and why I’m obsessed…because, fashion.)
You probably know (or maybe you don’t) that I recently lost/left my corporate job at Bebe Stores. Yup, I’m currently “retired” as Rob likes to call it. I debated making a post about this or not, but I feel like it’s something I need to get out.
