Dear Wonderful Reader,
I know it’s not Friday…
With only 5 days left until Spring (March 20th), I feel the rush to liberate myself from those heavy Winter coats, long Winter boots, and start Spring Cleaning my closet, my house, but most importantly, my mind. Winter may have brought me some challenges, and some tests, but it’s time to rid myself of all that stress and heavy-sighing and indulge in a Spring State of Mind.
This post will feature the latest Spring 2014 looks from the runway, not for imitation purposes, but to spark your imagination and fire your soul for Spring. Now, it’s important to note that a Spring State of Mind requires more than just shifting or updating your closet; after all, it is a state of mind. So think of this Spring as a new start where flowers blossom and grass gets greener and spring yourself forward.
Spring Cleaning Your Mind
1. Sit down in a quiet, clean area and start free writing (writing mindlessly) about your life and where you are in life. Do that for 10 minutes. Then, read it again.
2. On a blank sheet of paper, create a table with four columns and labels them as follows:
Work on this table for as long as you need.
3. Look over each column with a realistic eye, and believing heart, and just be honest with yourself. We are our own worst judge, so remind yourself at every second to be positive and gentle towards yourself.
4. Make a clean, visually appealing version of this table and omit the, Things I need to let go of column. Frame it or tape it next to your closet. Every day wakeup expectantly, ready to rock (or tackle!) the day, and pick an outfit that makes you feel GOOD and fabulous (doesn’t have to be expensive!). Then, glance over at the table and keep your eyes and focus on the prize!!!
At Last, here are the aforementioned pictures:
P.S. Please excuse the lengthy-ness of this post; it was supposed to be solely about Spring fashion, but then this happened! Stay fabulous!
