Lately I’ve been in a funk, and I’ve been blaming my circumstances as if I’m stuck in them. I read a book recommended by an amazing blogger mama and boss lady, Rachel Parcell of Pink Peonies — You are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life — and it’s really inspiring me to go after it in 2018. To stop with the excuses or I can’ts or narratives I’ve told myself for years about not feeling good enough or being jealous of other people doing stuff I want to do and lamenting my reality as if I couldn’t do just the same. I’ve decided to go after stuff in 2018, start taking names and getting what I want and instead of doubting and feeling awkward or not saying what I want, expressing what I want and need and not doubting my ability to get it but talking and thinking as it’s happening.
My new reality is that these dreams are happening, not I wish they would. I’m finding through this blog, this passion project of mine, that I’m building this community of all of you who is inspiring me and encouraging me to make my dreams happen and giving me the courage to do so and I couldn’t be more grateful.
I want to be that for you too. What if we all banded together this year and did it together? What if we committed to making our dreams a reality and not wishing and wanting but believing we deserve, we’re good enough and we can do it? What do we have to lose?
I firmly believe dressing for the part can transform how you feel and your confidence and that’s why I originally started Closetful of Clothes. It’s now expanded into so much more — I want it to be a place to share what I love, what I’ve learned, my struggles and my joys and my dreams and hope that together, we can help each other accomplish our dreams or at least make getting dressed, picking out the right car seat, organizing a small apartment or hosting a dinner party a little easier.
Thank you for inspiring me to live my dream and for helping me to believe I am good enough and I can live my dreams rightnow. You’ve changed my life and I hope I can in some small way repay the favor and help inspire yours.
