New Year's Eve Self ExplorationTuesday, December 31, 2013
As many of you know, I am a Free People junkie. Even though I cannot afford a lot of stuff (Hello, Macy's clearance section.), I still check their blog on a daily basis. It's full of life and inspiration. When I saw this post by Kristen Hedges, I knew I had to do all of these things for myself.
1. Let go of something. Welp, I totally already did that here. No, I haven't found a replacement cup yet, either. You know what? It still feels great. And sad. Great and sad. What is my life?
3. Do something different, or differently. It does not have to be something big! Even if all you do is go to a different lunch spot, or take a different route to your current favorite spot. Trying new things is a great way to awaken self exploration. I, believe it or not, actually bought a pair of printed leggings. WHAT? I totally never knew they were leggings on the manikin, but when I saw them on Anthropologie's site described as leggings, I nearly had a heart attack. But you know what? If I liked them before, why not now? So I bought them yesterday (25% off all sale made them roughly $30 instead of the original $100. Woot!) and can't wait to show them to you.
4. Write something down. Anything. New cities you explored, that night spent on the trampoline drinking wine with your friends till the sun came up, or even just a new drink you tried. I haven't done this yet, but I want to write down a list of personal accomplishments and goals that I met. Never mind the ones I did not meet; they aren't important right now.
5. Celebrate. Well, come now it's New Year's Eve. Don't be afraid of a new perfume or lipstick, and bring out that tacky dress you can't wear any other time. Embrace it into the folds of your being! I, for one, can't wait to bring out my flapper dress, ok? We are welcoming an entire new season into our lives! Love what has come, and what is yet to come.
