Happy Friday, babes! How fun is this combo? Velvet on mesh/tulle! I love mixing contract fabrics together to add a little more dimension to my outfits. Another dimensional work-wear inspiration for this skirt is pairing it with this body and this blazer! I received so many compliments at the office! But let me tell you, body’s are my new favorite fashion piece!!! I wear them ALL the time and under EVERYTHING!
So today I wanted to get a little more serious and share some advice I received that has been changing my outlook on my life and my goals. The power of the words “I am”. For an easy example, saying to yourself everyday in the mirror “I am pretty” or “I am good enough”. Just by repeating that to yourself and saying it out loud, you will slowly start to see a change – how you now believe you are pretty enough or are smart enough. That one took me awhile to overcome. Rather than saying “I want….”, I am now working on telling myself “I am ready for…” to get ready for the things I “want” or am “ready for” in life and to achieve the goals I have set for myself. I’m slowly starting to realize how much power the mind has if you channel it in the right direction! Or even wrong direction – it still works.
I encourage each of you to try using the phrase “I am…” and saying something positive about yourself or something you’re ready for. Comment below if you would like to share!
